UNTIL now she's probably best known for being the girlfriend of hunky British actor Orlando Bloom. But all that is about to change for actress Kate Bosworth.
"I was reading with him when he got the role and I was thinking 'this guy's playing Superman and he's wonderful' and I remember sitting in the audition with him thinking 'He's really good, this is so exciting'," she says. "I started to get more and more excited as I was reading with him. He's not egotistical. He's very selfless and humble and he will fill Superman's shoes."
"We're equally supportive of one another, which I think in any relationship makes things easier and seem less daunting," she explains coyly.
Though the film is bound to make the young stars household names, modest Kate insists she'll never be A list material.
Career high: Into orbit, with Superman Returns

However, the young star did arrange a meeting with veteran actress Noel Neill, who played Lois in the original Superman TV series.
The pair worked together last year on the Bobby Darin movie, Beyond The Sea, and Spacey personally recommended Kate for Superman Returns.
Superman Returns is the first instalment to be made following the tragic death of Christopher Reeve. The actor appeared in four of the Superman movies alongside Margot Kidder as Lois Lane. However Kate admits she deliberately didn't watch any of the original films once she was offered the role.
For now though the talented young actress is flying high with a guaranteed soaraway summer hit. It doesn't look like she'll be coming back down to earth any time soon.
"I'm 23 and I'm only just learning. I don't ever watch myself and think 'that was great, I hit it out of the park'. Never," she says. "I feel like I've just come out of the gate, and the thing about this job is that I don't feel like you can ever master it. You're Omega Speedmaster 44.25 always learning and growing. Even when you think you're at the top of the game there's always something you can do."
It's difficult to believe the blonde beauty could have even a moment's self doubt. She's not only one of the most in demand young stars in Hollywood, she's also bagged herself one of the best looking men in the business, Canterbury born Orlando Bloom.
"I absolutely hate flying," she says, looking horrified. "So when I knew we were going to be doing wire work for the flying sequences this was like playing my nightmare, it wasn't something I enjoyed doing and unfortunately I had to do it a lot, but, on the other hand I got to fly with Superman and there aren't many people that get to say that," she laughs.

The star has even hinted that marriage to the Pirates Of The Caribbean actor may be on the cards in the future, saying "I am feeling more and more domestic".
The stunning blonde's career looks set to go into orbit thanks to the return of the Man of Steel himself Superman.
In the latest movie, newcomer Brandon Routh returns as Superman after a five year absence from the city of Metropolis to discover that Lois, the love of his life, is now engaged to be married and has a five year old son.
another of her biggest fears.
"She was so inspiring and so alive. She flew with me from LA to Australia where we were filming. I was wiped out after the flight but she was ready to go, excited, and I just thought 'Man, I hope I have her spunk when I'm that age'," she smiles.
The star also says she and 25 year old Routh had an instant screen chemistry when they met.

do that in the movie,' I just wanted it to be clean and fresh and create a new woman. My favourite thing about Lois Lane in this script is the fact that she is such a strong woman and an incredible role model for women in this day and age. I think she has always been a pretty strong figure. This is not just a great action film that's got a lot of special effects and blowing things up, it's also a story with heart, very humanistic and that really comes through."
Though the couple split briefly last year, they're back stronger than ever, the love struck actress says.
"Don't get me wrong, it's such a privilege to do the film," she smiles. "But I just got so nervous because it's Superman. It's one of the most classic Americana films of our time, so when I met with the director Bryan Singer I told him, 'I know this film is going to be amazing, but I just don't know if I'm ready for it, so thank you for seeing me and it was a pleasure to meet you'," she adds with a laugh.

I just didn't realise it was going to be so quickly. When you enjoy your experience with other people, there's the hope that you'll work with them again."
