Bloom has run-in with paparazzi

Orlando Bloom confronted paparazzi photographers yesterday for taking pictures of him arriving home.

Orlando Bloom confronted paparazzi photographers yesterday for taking pictures of him arriving home.

The ‘Pirates of the Caribbean’ star pulled up on his bike near his property in Brentwood, Los Angeles, and started to shout at the snappers who were taking shots of him.

He went up to one paparazzo and tried to grab his camera from him and then went and opened the back door of another photographer’s car, and seemed to be rummaging around for equipment.

One lensman who works for X17 Online said: “Orlando was super p***ed. He has his moments - he just gets upset sometimes and doesn't want photographers around. No one was doing anything other than standing on the side of the road taking pictures, but he just didn't want it.”

The 33-year-old actor eventually calmed down and walked away from the photographers.

Orlando’s wife Miranda Kerr is due to give birth to the couple’s first child in the next few weeks.
