Rules of Life Elijah Wood
Good afternoon, my name is Elijah Wood, and I am a loser.
I am the oldest of thirty-actor in the world.
Thanks to his mother, I started very early. Not everyone knows about it, but my first movie role - a tiny episode in the second part of the "Back to the Future." We lived in Iowa, and when I was six, my mother saw some commercials with children and decided that all the things that they did in the picture, I would have done better. So I was in a movie, and it seems that way in the movies were all child actors. But I'm happy that I did not repeat the fate that awaits most of them when they get older.
My name has several interpretations. The most popular - "messenger of God", but I prefer the "elect."
I have worked with Salma Hayek and Brooke Shields. I do not even have their phone numbers. You'll hate me for it, but I never do not call them.
I'm not a star. Star - a ball of hot gas.
Outside of Hollywood, too, are people, but not everyone in Hollywood believe in this.
The strength of the film is enormous. Every time I meet Ian McKellen, I see in front of Gandalf.
When, in 1999, Peter Jackson invited me to the "Lord of the Rings", I was literally speechless and until late at night could not speak. But my sister was worn around the house and squeal.
I realized in New Zealand, Middle-earth that still exists.
I think I'm one of the few people who saw how Peter Jackson is crying.
The most amazing thing in the books of JRR Tolkien is that even in moments of great triumph and present great tribulation. After the shooting, Jackson actually gave me this ring. Now it is somewhere near me, but I do not know exactly where. I put it - but somehow accidentally, not intentionally. Just put in the box, he pushed somewhere and since then has not seen.
I never thought that I will sell in the form of toys.
You can call me Frodo.
There are people who grew up on a movie, and there are people who grew up on the books. I grew up listening to.
When I said that I will play Iggy Pop (in the biopic "The Passenger"), I was scared to death. The obligations imposed by this role to you, does not compare to anything else. Therefore, to be with you until the end frank, I even feel relieved when they told me that the project is frozen.
Take necessary only for what scares you.
If I were not an actor, I would be a secret agent.
The strangest thing that gave me a movie - it's a feeling that I can influence people's opinions. But I have not learned how to use it, because it is not sure that all these should be used.
Sometimes being part of a great better than just be great.
Do not have any plans - is also a plan.
People spend too much time on it to be better than others.
It is very easy to beat someone at something. It is very difficult to overcome something within yourself.
I find it hard to find common ground with those who did not believe that "The Empire Strikes Back" - is the most important film of the trilogy.
You should be equally obsessed with what you love and what you hate. The most important thing that I learned after the filming of "Green Street Hooligans" (2004 film about the confrontation of British football groups), is that sometimes the people who seem to us cruel and repulsive, live a more normal life than we do.
Do not confuse ideas and their interpretation.
I'm a normal person. It is a pity, but the word "normal" has become so hackneyed that be normal now almost indecent.
The most excruciating pain I experienced today - this is my tattoo.
I never thought that would play at my funeral. Maybe something from Zombies (British rock band formed in the early 1960s). Or Good vibrations (the famous song of Beach Boys). But it seems that it will be too positive.
Jazz - it's too old-fashioned way to put the girl in bed. Try Blue Lines by Massive Attack.
Dreams often come true, so that the dream of the improbable.
I'm lucky: I've never had to work with the people I can not stand on the spirit.
Most of all invoices hobbichih feet irritated me that at the end of the day, they always smelled of urine.
No good cigarettes.
I never spoke with dogs.
