British movie heart-throb Orlando Bloom is so grateful to his fans for helping his rise to fame - he writes back to each and every fan letter he receives.

The TROY star is one of the internet's most popular searches and is the subject of many websites, although Bloom admits he hates seeing the sites himself.

He says, "They make me a little nervous. I'm grateful to the people that do them because they are very enthusiastic about the work I do. The fans kind of put you where you are.

"I get 500 letters a week. And I answer all those letters, so I've got my hands full."
