Actor Elijah Wood is jealous of pal Jack Osbourne's luck with the opposite sex - because he never gets the same level of interest from good-looking ladies.

The 22-year-old actor constantly feels inadequate next to Ozzy Osbourne's reality TV star son, despite being billed as one of Hollywood's hottest hunks.

He laments, "They seem to love him. Wherever he goes, its: 'Hi, Jack,' and girls are all over him. I wish I had that same appeal.

"People are always telling me: 'You're a good looking guy - and you're famous.' If only it was that simple. Some guy said to me the other day: 'I bet they're in a line around the block.'

"I wish. If there's anyone out there who thinks I'm appealing, then spread the word. It's not been the easiest of times, despite all the movies and fleeting fame."

Elijah is still nursing a broken heart after splitting with stunning German actress FRANKE POTENTE earlier this year (03).
