"Pirates of the Caribbean" star Orlando Bloom's Hollywood Hills home has been burglarized, with one or more thieves stealing about $500,000 in jewelry, cash and artwork, Los Angeles police said Thursday.

The break-in was discovered Wednesday night by a relative of the British actor, police said.

Bloom is the latest Hollywood celebrity to run afoul of burglars. In May, the LAPD released images of two burglars traveling in a Dodge Magnum who tried to break into a home used by actress Lindsay Lohan. In December, about $2 million worth of jewelry was stolen from Paris Hilton's home, police said.

A burglary crew also is believed to be responsible for break-ins at homes of former Paramount Pictures chief Sherry Lansing, the Bel-Air mansion of NBA basketball player Cuttino Mobley and the home of country music stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill.
