Kate Bosworth is glad of her celebrity status when it comes to flying, because the airport staff treat her with extra care.

The pretty BLUE CRUSH star admits the welcome she gets by airline staff who are trained to deal with stars makes her feel safe.

She says, "Someone from the airline greets me at the airport and takes me through security, and sometimes I get on the plane first.

"I hate flying, and this makes me feel less nervous."

Bosworth even plucked up the courage to visit boyfriend Orlando Bloom on the set of Troy in Malta - as a surprise.

She adds, "I loved doing it."
