Orlando Bloom gets a chest wig

Orlando Bloom has been told to wear a chest wig to look ‘more manly’ for his new film. Movie bosses want the screen hearthrob to cover up with the hairy rug for his new lead role in the Crusades epic Kindom of Heaven.

Director Ridley Scott reportedly believes the actor, who stars as Paris in Troy, needs to cover up his hairless chest to make a more convincing hero.

The 28 year old has also been bulking up for the part, revealing that he has been spending more time in the gym ‘builing up’ to play the farrier-turned-warrior in the upcoming film.
