Ellen needs to talk about Orlando Bloom's Harry Styles hair. So do we.

Whose hair does Orlando Bloom's man-bob remind you of? Hint: Sounds like 'hairy styles'

Props to Ellen DeGeneres for putting Orlando Bloom's latest unkempt haircut on blast. 

"The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies" star has been sporting a floppy man-bob as of late, not unlike that of a certain One Direction boy-bander whose name kinds rhymes with "hairy styles."

"I'm trying to look like Harry Styles? Hello? Me?" the 37-year-old British star scoffed on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday. "I'm trying to look like me! But I like Harry."

"The mane is in place," he explained, for a role. However, he's now considering chopping off the grown-out tresses because of the latest comparison -- much to the chagrin of DeGeneres' audience.

The actor has wrapped filming of the drama "Digging for Fire" and is shooting the thriller "Unlocked." He didn't indicate which film was the coif culprit, but just about anything would be better than that blond elven wig he wore as Legolas.

Bloom quipped that perhaps Styles was copying his son Flynn's 'do instead -- or maybe Styles didn't know that Bloom actually had the hairstyle first.

The "Pirates of the Caribbean" alum also showed off his toned abs during a rousing game of "Heads Up!" and shared that he'd be spending Christmas this year with his ex, supermodel Miranda Kerr, and their nearly 4-year-old son. The two announced their separation in September 2013 after being married for three years but have remained friendly.

Meanwhile, another "Hobbit" star: Smaug, the dragon voiced by "Sherlock" star Benedict Cumberbatch, was a special guest on "The Colbert Report" on Thursday. Incidentally, Cumberbatch was not.
