Orlando Bloom

All lanky limbs at 1.8m, with chocolate eyes and dark-brown mohawk-- "a fin effect" he calls it-- Orlando Bloom was hardly recognizable as platinum-locked elf warrior Legolas in Lord of the Rings. Three grueling months of battle training was no sweat for the surfer, snowboarder and skydiver, who says he has a passion for "things that give me an adrenaline kick." The one hitch? "I'm rather accident prone," says Bloom, who broke a rib during filming adding it to the broken back, nose, both legs, arm, wrist, finger, toe and thrice-cracked skull he's endured in his 25 years. Born and raised in Canterbury, England, the Levi's-loving, twice tattooed Black Hawk Down star is single and, better yet, in Australia, filming Ned Kelly (in Victoria) with Heath Ledger. Though he plans to see the sights when not on-set, female fans shouldn't get their hopes up. "Now my only relationship is with my work," he said in February. Such is life.
