Title: Interview in german Glamour magazine
Post by: Sabine on January 21, 2006, 08:07:23 pm

I found this interview on the german side of Sean Astin.

I have tried to translate it, but my English is not that good, so if someone wants to correct something, no problem:

Q.: Some time ago, you mentioned, that women make you have fear, is that the same today?
Elijah: It is funny, everyone is asking me about that, but it is a long time ago, that I said that. But ist not true anymore, In contrary I feel very comfortable being together with women.

Q: Is there one lady, where you feel special being together?
Elijah: Yes, my girlfriend, she is working in the music business, but that is all I want to say about.

Q: Not even her first name?
Elijah: No, honestly, I cannot. I have to protect the innocent.

Q: Is this caution based on the experiences you had with the paparazzi when you were together with Frank Potente?
Elijah: That was not that dramatic, but it was the first time, that the press was interest in my relationship and that was new for me.

Q: Do you have already contact with Frank?
Elijah: Of course, We are still friends, even if she does not live in LA anymore. I have talked to her recently. Franka didńt like LA that much,. It can be very hard/strong town, if you are a stranger. It is another thing for me -I grow up there, familiy and friends and the job, everything is in LA, I love this city..

Q: But you wanted to studyEnglish in NY City?
Elijah: Yes, but then the work intervened. So my studies then were LOTR.

Q: Do you have already contact with the other hobbits and elves?
Elijah: We try to meet whenever we are in the same town. We phone with each other on a regular base.We are something like a big self-help group.

Q: What was so fascinating at the role of Jonathan , the writer in EII?
Elijah: The famous writer from NY meet a young guy from Russia.And together they are going on a mysterious journey.This Jonathan is a bit strange, but only a bit.

Q: We thing he is crazy. Are there similtaries between him and you?
Elijah: No!: But perhaps the obsession for collecting..

Q: What do you collect?
Elijah: Oh many things. I started with action figures. And now CD and records.I have a huge collection, many thousands.I dońt separate myself from things that easy. Concert tickets or things that I find, I collect as long as they have a meaning or remember me of something important. But not arranged, in a jumble.

Q: Which music do you chosse for a romatic tape for your girlfriend?
Elijah:Some classics like Al Green, Elvis Costello, Patsy Kline, Aretha Franklin, Prince...much soul,R&B, and jazz. Then some Pop songs of the Beatles and the Kinks. Dońt get the wrong expresion: There are many obscure music in my collection

Q: But one can you hear “live”?
Elijah: Yes every second tuesday. My friend Jason and I are Djs at the bar “The Bar” in LA on the Sunset Boulevard.

Q: Another music qusetion: You will play the music legend Iggy Pop in a movie?
Elijah: Yes and that wońt be easy. First I have to work and do sports, because Iggy has such a muscular and stringy body. He is in such a good form, it is unbelievable. And I have to do lessons in playing drums and guitar.

Q: Have you met Iggy?
Elijah: No, but I am a bit anxious.He is a real icon.But like any other fear I should face this one directly.

Has someone ever been to that bar in LA and seen him being the DJ?

And I am happy that there no bitter feelings between him and Franka Potente. :D

[color=Blue]Sabine, thanks sooooooooo much for that interview and I think you did REALLY well on the translation, I'm sure it wasn't easy. :-*

Is this magazine still in the shops now? [/color]

Well, Sabine....you have nothing to apologize for. Your translation is wonderful. Thank you so much for doing it.

Q: Another music qusetion: You will play the music legend Iggy Pop in a movie?
Elijah: Yes and that won't be easy. First I have to work and do sports, because Iggy has such a muscular and stringy body. He is in such a good form, it is unbelievable. And I have to do lessons in playing drums and guitar.


Woohoo! We've all been wondering about this. So he's going to work out and get all muscular. :P And he must be absolutely thrilled at the thought of learning to play drums and guitar.

I can't wait! *dances, jumps up and down, spins in circles*

Q: Have you met Iggy?
Elijah: No, but I am a bit anxious.He is a real icon.But like any other fear I should face this one directly.


Now that is going to be a very interesting meeting. I wonder what Iggy will think of Elijah. I'll bet he wins Iggy over....just like he does everyone else. We already know Elijah said Iggy is one of his idols.


Has someone ever been to that bar in LA and seen him being the DJ?

I don't think so. I'm sure they would have written about it at A & F if they had.

And I am happy that there no bitter feelings between him and Franka Potente.

Me, too. It's so much better to remain friends than to be bitter.

I think Primula (or was it empressaurelius) once went to see him DJ at "The Bar" but he remained "hidden" behind a curtain all night.

Wow!! Nice interview!! Thank you for translating for us, Sabine. I'm glad he and Franka are still friends. I think that is the correct way to finish a relationship, but in many cases that's impossible to do.

Title: Re:Interview in german Glamour magazine
Post by: Blue Star on January 21, 2006, 09:50:55 pm

That was a great translation! Thank you for this Sabine!

Although one little correction: I think when you translated 'already' a couple times, it meant 'still'. Like does he still have contact with Franka or the hobbits. :)

But nice job! ;D Some great new information, WOOT!

Thanks Sabine. That's a great interview. And you did a great job translating it.

Yes! He's going to work out, and learn to play drums and guitar! I'm really looking forward to this movie.

Oh, and sorry Elijah, but I think most people know who your girlfriend is. Or at least it would be very easy to find out. But I can see why he wouldn't want to name her specifically.

:) I guess it's just a post-adolescent fear that worked out. Good!

Not that innocent.

Which is not only admirable, but almost superhuman of him. If a boyfriend treated me that way, I'd probably kick him where it hurts most.

Ah, too bad.

LOTR anonymous... they call each other up when they feel the uncontrollable urge to smoke pipeweed or shoot arrows. ;)

How about DVDs, I wonder. :) It's cute that he collects tickets like that.

Thanks for the interview and translation. You did a great job!

And, I have to agree with those who were happy to hear that he is working out and learning to play drums and guitar. ;D

Title: Re:Interview in german Glamour magazine
Post by: Seven on January 21, 2006, 11:01:22 pm

Although I hope he doesn't burn too much body fat when he works out a lot. He hasn't got a lot to spare.

Post by: Joanna on January 21, 2006, 11:56:24 pm

Thanks so much for the interview! You did a really good job translating it :-*

Now I'm dying to see that movie - does anyone know when it comes out, and if it's going to be a wide release or not? None of the limited releases are ever in theaters close by - I never got to see GSH or EII :'(

That article also has inspired me to work out - I haven't done anything for months :-[

And I would love to go to that bar in LA ;D

Title: Re:Interview in german Glamour magazine
Post by: magicdancer on January 21, 2006, 11:59:47 pm

Well, I assumed from that interview that they haven't even started filming yet since Elijah hasn't yet started working out or taking drum and guitar lessons. He said he will be, but apparently hasn't started yet. So I doubt very much that the movie will be out this year.

Just guessing though.


Title: Re:Interview in german Glamour magazine
Post by: Seven on January 22, 2006, 12:07:56 am

Although these things are usually done some months in advance -- the median is three, I think. So it COULD be going on soon, or even now.

I would think that if they could, they would aim for a pre-Oscar release date.

Post by: magicdancer on January 22, 2006, 12:40:08 am

Well, if that's the case, Elijah better hit the gym....like tomorrow! You don't build up muscles overnight. ::)

Post by: Joanie on January 22, 2006, 12:59:45 am

Great interview! Thanks for translating Sabine! So he's gonna learn to play drums and guitar.......good for him! I agree with Yeux, I don't think this film is gonna come out in '06. He doesn't look like he's started working out yet. Wow, I would love to see him bulked up a little......he's too skinny!!

Title: Re:Interview in german Glamour magazine
Post by: Seven on January 22, 2006, 01:23:33 am

I wonder if he'll be doing exercises to make him lean, as opposed to bulky -- Iggy was a reed, though a muscular, sinewy reed.

Post by: Raewood on January 22, 2006, 01:49:56 am

Elijah just said tonight at ORC in the transcript here http://msilverstar.livejournal.com/218101.html that filming on the Iggy movie will start by the end of the year.

Thank you sabine you did a great job with that translation. better than i would... :)

i can't wait to see him after that training...i imagine him look even better with some more muscles..well we will see

Post by: shiredrops on January 22, 2006, 11:23:30 am

Thank you Sabine, there were lots of interesting little bits in there. :)

I have to admit - I'm not sure I want to see him as Iggy. It would be nice to see Elijah more toned but I hope he doesn't go too skinny and sinewy - that's a bit of a turn off for me!

Yes, it was Prim... but she didn't really see him.

Great interview and great translation.
Sabine you are very good with your English.

I am looking forward to see what he is going to fit into the role of Iggy.
I think we will see in November at RingCon. ;)

Hey you got a point there!! Ring*Con is not long before they will start shooting this Iggy- thingy...wow....
I didn´t think about that. He will probably already be in the...."Iggy- shape" by then... ;D Fantastic!! I bet he will look stunning...more muscles .. ;) but I just hope he doesn´t get to skinny!!

Don't actually get in on that many forum discussions. My time is usually spent over at the box on A+F's main page, and lately I haven't even been visiting there that often, but this grabbed my interest, so I thought to chime in.

First thanks to Sabine for the translation:)

Second, I find this rather interesting and now the bugger has me wondering just exactly what he means. In the recent "Seven deadly sins" article he commented to "Humo" magazine that he still isn't very good at just walking up to a woman that he likes and flirting, so I am guessing that he still struggles with some shyness? Although this comment certainly seems to contradict the other one, unless he meant to express that he no longer feels the "general fear" that he once did. That now he is alot more comfortable when women happen to be around him or in his orbit.

Sorry to ramble, it is just that often interviews can be a bit confusing and they rarely give you a full picture or elaborate on the meaning of what someone may be trying to say. Then again, I seem to just be WAY too interested in picking Elijah's brain. Bad habit:)[/quote]
