Orlando Bloom's fame stunned Troy co-star

[from Teen Hollywood]

Movie newcomer Diane Kruger is primed for fame when epic film Troy is released, because she had the educational privilege of witnessing co-star and Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom's rapid surge in popularity.

Kruger - who plays lead character Helen of Troy in the upcoming movie - was stunned by Orlando's sudden rise to sex symbol status when his film Pirates of the Caribbean topped the box office midway through the shoot.

The former ballet dancer from Germany says, "When we started shooting, no one really knew who he was - he's made Lord of the Rings but he looked so different in that.

"Halfway through shooting Troy, Pirates Of The Caribbean came out. It was pretty extraordinary to witness someone going from basically nothing to having girls screaming whenever we stepped out the door."
