Bloom Begs For Extra Time
Film star ORLANDO BLOOM has begged studio bosses for time off promoting the latest PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN movie, to watch England compete in the quarter-finals of the soccer World Cup on Saturday (01JUL06). The football-mad actor has been promoting PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN: THE CURSE OF THE BLACK PEARL around the world, but is desperate to have a few hours off to watch captain DAVID BECKHAM and his team play Portugal in Gelsenkirchen, Germany. A friend says, "Orlando loves his football. He has been glued to the World Cup. He wouldn't dream of missing England's quarter-final clash with Portugal."
