Orlando Bloom has said that he found inspiration for his role in new film Sympathy For Delicious in Ian Brown and Liam and Noel Gallagher.

The actor plays singer The Stain in the new flick, and explained that he looked to the attitude of The Stone Roses frontman and Oasis pair when working on his character.

"I was thinking of Ian Brown, lead singer for The Stone Roses and the Gallagher brothers from Oasis," he told WENN.



He added: "A lot of the great British bands come from the north of England. Those guys particularly, the Gallagher brothers and Ian Brown, have got this real attitude, arrogance and confidence that they are the best band in the world and everyone needs to know that and I really thought that lent itself to The Stain."

Sympathy for Delicious opens in the UK on Friday (April 29).
