Movie beauty Kate Bosworth knows it must be nerve-wracking for fans who approach her - but is often stunned by the comments they make.

The Blue Crush actress - who is dating Lord Of The Rings hunk ORLANDO BLOOM - is deeply touched that many of her devoted followers wait for ages to speak to her, but often wonders why they make such bizarre observations.

She explains, "It is so cute, actually, the things people say when they meet you always makes me smile.

"I signed an autograph for this girl last night and she said, 'I've been waiting out here for hours to meet you,' and I was thinking, 'Wow, that's really sweet'.

"Then she just blurted out, 'You have great teeth.' I thought, 'Did I hear her right?' so I said, 'Pardon?' and she repeated, 'You have great teeth.'

"I said, 'Well, thank you,' but I could see her thinking, 'Oh my God! I've been waiting for hours and all I said was 'you have great teeth'.
