Ooh-er, Captain!, Bliss (UK), September 2003
typed by Sarah
We caught up with Orlando Bloom, fresh from wavin’ his sword around on the
high seas for his new movie. Spill yer guys, me laddo…
So why this film – Pirates of the Caribbean?
Isn’t it just every little boy’s dream to be a pirate? It’s a great story –
it’s got action, adventure, romance, the whole thing.
Oh, we can’t hold it in – are you going out with Kate Bosworth? We have to know!
You know, I don’t really talk about my private life… I like to keep it separate.
Spoilsport – what about snogging co-star Keira Knightly, then?
Er, that was acting! She’s a great kisser and absolutely gorgeous, so that
made up for it.
People must still recognise you mostly from Lord of the Rings?
Yeah, people say; ‘You’re that elf dude, right?’ I’m still amazed when that
happens – even I hardly recognise myself when I see myself on screen. I’m pretty
glad to have a role that doesn’t involve false ears though!
Pirates of the Caribbean (12A) is out on 8 August
