Things getting hairy for Orlando Bloom in new movie

[from Contact Music]

British movie heart-throb and Lord of the Rings star Orlando Bloom has been forced to wear a chest wig in his latest film - because his torso is too bare.

Orlando, most recently in Troy, is currently filming his role as Balian of Ibelin in Ridley Scott's forthcoming film Kingdom of Heaven about the 12th century crusades.

Make-up artists on set have applied Bloom's thorax with fake chest-hair to make him appear more credible as a blacksmith-turned-warrior.

A film set insider says, "His chest rug is probably the best special effect in the picture."
