Brit movie heart-throb Orlando Bloom has been forced to wear a chest wig in his latest film - because his torso is too bare.

The Troy actor is currently filming his role as BALIAN OF IBELIN in RIDLEY SCOTT's forthcoming film Kingdom of Heaven about the 12th century crusades.

Make-up artists on set have applied Bloom's thorax with fake chest-hair to make him appear more credible as a blacksmith-turned-warrior.

A film set insider says, "His chest rug is probably the best special effect in the picture."
