[This is likely another fake interview.]
We meet Orlando Bloom (26) during
a break on the set of "Troy" in Mexico. But the interview is not about his new
historical movie where he acts with Brad Pitt, it is about "Pirates of the Caribbean".
Orli remembers it like it was yesterday and talks.....
"I've always been a fan of Johnny. It was an honour for me to act
with him. Once he navigated the 'Interceptor' alone for a moment without knowing
it. When the director told him afterwards, Johnny had to breathe

"She is super-sweet. If I
wouldn't be with Kate Bosworth, I could fall for her. Once she took a
seasickness pill on set - and promptly fell asleep. She felt very embarrassed."

of course many of the scenes were made with the computer."
up in flames
"Orli: Before I began shooting in October 2002, there was a
fire on the set which destroyed 350.000 Dollar worth of equipment. Even during
filming ships went up in flames - but those were set alight deliberately."
Orli says pitiful: "I think that Keira

in which Johnny Depp rescues her under water!"
