Bling Ring - Orlando Bloom Refused The Bling Ring Cameo

Real life Bling Ring victim Orlando Bloom snubbed the chance to make a cameo appearance in Sofia Coppola's new film about the celebrity burglaries because the plot felt "too close to home" for the actor.

Coppola's movie The Bling Ring tells the story of a group of thieves who snatched more than $3 million (£1.9 million) worth of items from properties belonging to Hollywood stars such as Bloom, Paris Hilton, Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson.

Hilton has a cameo role in the film, but the Pirates of the Caribbean actor reveals he turned down the chance to appear in the project.

He tells Britain's Hello! magazine, "Sofia Coppola is wonderful and I'd love to work with her. She asked me to cameo in the movie but I said it was too close to home for me to want to be involved."

Bloom was among the stars who gave evidence against the real life suspects, while fellow victim Rachel Bilson, who also testified in court, recently spoke out against Coppola's film, telling Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, "I thought it was weird to glorify something that was so upsetting for a lot of people. It's important to detach from material things, but the special, personal things I lost are hard to forget."
