Lord Of The Rings hunk Orlando Bloom is completely overwhelmed by his newfound fame and is struggling to adjust to his new celebrity status.

British-born Orlando is currently starring with Johnny Depp in PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL and is finishing filming Troy in Mexico with BRAD PITT - and has found his swift success "really overwhelming".

He gasps, "I still can't believe it. It's a weird time for me right now, and I'm still trying to figure it all out.

"The hardest thing is when you start to live the dream, 'cause it's not quite what you expect it to be. There's so much media attention that comes with it, and it can be really overwhelming. I suppose it takes some adjusting."
