Orlando Bloom appears to be an open fella. Ask him about movies, such as Pirates of the Caribbean, and he'll talk at length about the experiences.

But bring up Kate Bosworth and the actor goes mum. He won't comment on the couple's break-up and we wouldn't dare ask him to comment on rumors that pocket lint weighs more than his former flame.

Therefore, it's doubtful that Orlando would have much to say about recent rumors that he's dating Penelope Cruz. But we'll spread them anyway!

The stars were seen twice at club Hyde together last week, fueling speculation that Penelope is either in full Bloom or Orlando is Cruzing for some tail. Choose your pun.

On Saturday, the two danced to the oldie "Run Around Sue" at the L.A. hot spot, as Bloom kissed Cruz's hand affectionately. The same night, however, the Lords of the Rings star was also seen giving his digits to an unidentified girl, who he flirtatiously grabbed around the waist.

Something, of course, he wasn't physically able to do with Bosworth near the end of their relationship.

"They were definitely together and holding hands," a source said about the duo's Hyde trips.

That's like almost first base. But Cruz's rep insists: "They are not dating."

Sure. Whatever you say. And no man on the planet wants to kiss Jessica Alba, either.

As his latest movie, Haven, is prepared to open nationwide, Orlando Bloom sat down with People magazine.

Your costar Zoë Saldaña tells us that kissing you was "gross." How could she?
I hated kissing Zoë too! I was like, "Take your tongue out of my mouth, please. Your boyfriend is standing right there." Most people think kissing beautiful costars must be great. But it's always awkward, man.

Haven, about doomed teenage love on Grand Cayman, is darker than your big blockbusters. Did that appeal to you?
Some people have said it's too hard-core for teenage audiences. But it deals with (real) issues. You go on vacation, sit by the pool, go to the bar. . . . In this movie you get to see the underbelly of . . . the Cayman Islands.

You've reportedly split with Kate Bosworth.
People always ask me whether (we're) together or not. It's still nobody's business.

Fair enough. Can you give us an update on Pirates of the Caribbean?
We're in the middle of part three. I've loved working on Pirates, but I'm looking forward to new projects. When you do a movie that's so successful, people think that's all you've done. "Oh, he's that pirate guy!"

Or 'that heartthrob guy?'
That doesn't bother me. Name any of my heroes, and they were hotties. Brando was a pinup, so was James Dean, Paul Newman. I'm not going to (rest) on my "teen hottie" laurels. I have aspirations to do more than that. (Still) they're very loyal fans, those teenage girls! I definitely appreciate them.

It's a terrible time for anorexic actresses and their relationships.

The public has barely had time to deal with the break up of Ashlee Simpson and Braxton Olita, when word comes out that another food-allergic celebrity has called it quits with her beau.

This time, it's Kate Bosworth and Orlando Bloom that have ended their four-year relationship. Sources close to the pair told Entertainment Tonight that the Pirates of the Caribbean star and the 23-year-old actress have decided to go their separate ways.

Although no one could actually see Bosworth, we assume she went somewhere.

Bloom, 29, is currently on location in Southern California shooting Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End. He recently attended the Teen Choice Awards on August 20 by himself, where he accepted the surfboard award for "Choice Hottie." Jessica Biel was the female winner.

The future may contain some awkward moments for these former flames. This month, they're set to start filming Seasons of Dust, a Depression-era drama about a young woman (Bosworth) whose uncle commits suicide, forcing her to flee with a dashing thief (Bloom).

We'll keep you abreast of those happenings. In the meantime, Nicole Richie better be careful: her rumored relationship with Brody Jenner may be next to go.

We just have to say that Kate Bosworth is looking rather thin lately.

We know that the Remember the Titans, Blue Crush and Win a Date With Tad Hamilton! star has always been naturally thin, but this is ridiculous. Soon enough, we'll have no choice but to ridicule Kate the way we do Nicole Richie. Actually, that's taking it too far. We would never subject a reasonably talented young actress to such treatment. A complete waste of space, on the other hand? Different ballgame. As our friends at say of Bosworth, "Granted, she is so thin that it's alarming, but at the same time, she is really beautiful."

Kate Bosworth Then and Now

Amen. But we suggest Bosworth resume eating on a regular basis to avoid a slew of anorexia-related jokes, not to mention poor health. Geez.

In other news, Bosworth beau Orlando Bloom was recently dining with a male pal at a trendy Hollywood hotel when a pretty brunette model approached and asked him on a date.

"Would you care to accompany me to an art gallery party in just a few," she asked the Pirates of the Caribbean star.

He politely declined.

"Sorry, the girlfriend wouldn't approve," Bloom said.

According to People, the fan reportedly rephrased her request several times before finally getting the hint and walking away.

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.

Orlando Bloom confessed that he loves kissing Keira Knightley while filming the Pirates of the Caribbean sequels.

"She's a great kisser and a lovely, and very funny, person," he said. "She's absolutely gorgeous."

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.
