Actor Orlando Bloom snubbed the chance to make a cameo appearance in Sofia Coppola’s new film The Bling Ring because the plot felt “too close to home”.
Coppola’s movie tells the story of a group of thieves who snatched more than 1.9 million pounds worth of items from properties belonging to Hollywood stars such as Bloom,Paris
Hilton,Lindsay Lohan and Rachel Bilson,reported Daily
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.
“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,” he said.
Bloom was among the stars who gave evidence against the real life suspects,while fellow victim Bilson,who also testified in court,recently spoke out against Coppola’s film.
“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.”
