British actor Orlando Bloom is struggling to come to terms with his new Hollywood fame - because he's attracted a group of 'hangers on'.

The handsome star has wowed film audiences with his performances in recent hits such as PIRATES OF THE CARRIBEAN: CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL and the LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy.

However, Bloom - who dates American actress KATE BOSWORTH - has now found himself surrounded by a whole group of staff devoted to his needs.

He puzzles, "There are suddely a lot of people in my life who weren't there before I was famous. And they're all on the payroll."
