He may be a handsome, tough elf, but there's one thing Orlando Bloom can't claim to be: Superman.

The British hunk fears he can't compete with girlfriend Kate Bosworth's latest onscreen flame, perhaps because he lacks X-ray vision and a shiny red cape.

Bosworth plays Lois Lane in new Superman Returns. As such, she's often canoodling is on screen cuddling with co-star Brandon Routh's Man Of Steel.

But The Pirates Of The Caribbean star is philosophical about their sizzling chemistry, admitting there's no point suffering pangs of envy.

He Bloom put it: "Jealous? Are you kidding? He's Superman. I'm just a pirate."

At least Orlando is on his way up. In the first movie, he was mostly just a blacksmith.

You think? Bloom did admit that he does find shooting love scenes strange.

"Kissing scenes are a bit peculiar. It's like you play at it," he said.

Bloom, 29, who has been linked to Kate Bosworth, Claire Danes and Sienna Miller, may have an edge over many of his actor counterparts if he ever wants to make a serious play for Keira's heart. In the July issue of InStyle, Knightley says she prefers British men.

"Ask an American guy what his beauty regime is, and he'll tell you. Ask a Brit, and he'll say, ‘Er… Guinness?' I like that," she said.

The actress, 21, does admit to an affinity for one American: Johnny Depp, her co-star in the Pirates franchise. Asked which of her leading men was the best kisser, she replied, "Johnny Depp certainly wasn't bad."

Knightley is currently dating British actor Rupert Friend, 24, her c-ostar in 2005's Pride & Prejudice, for which she garnered an Oscar nomination.
