Ha ha thats sweet, I wouldn't have thought about that if you hadn't have said, so thanks!  I think he really respects women and thats why he's nervous around them, rather than that he;'s scared of them (probably!!!LOL)

^Well I was talking to one of my male friends the other day, and he said he had the same 'woman fear' as Elijah LOL!! I asked my buddy why, hoping that the fear/nervousness was caused by respect - but he said that ALL men fear women and not out of respect - men fear women because apparently we baffle them!! HAHAHAHAHA!! I thought it was very cute

Hahaha that's funny, Haru. I love how men think women are so mysterious... we can manipulate them to do whatever we please!

Is there such a fear as becoming too successful?

Interesting discussion. I appreciate everyone's thoughts.
My impression is that Elijah is mostly afraid of disappointing other people, of letting his directors/producers/fellow cast members down in some way. He is extremely attentive when at work, and that tells me he really fears f**ing up in the work department.
I guess the same is probably true for his personal life. This is just a guess though as we have no way of observing him in his private life. But I think it's the same, he has been the chief breadwinner for the family since childhood, and even though his mum wouldn't let him feel it, I can't imagine it doesn't affect you as a person. He's carried enourmous responsibility, if you look at it that way, and I think that has shaped his fear of letting people down.

His brother told him that women are like an art museum - beautiful to watch but risky to touch, or something like that, and it's also hard to tell which one of them wants publicity and which one really likes the guy.

At least Elijah love his mother.

Macaulay Culkin was in that state, too, but the story did'nt end out well, but Mac has managed to get back on his feet.

Once again Elijah thanks his mother for supporting and growing him as the person he is today.

Yeh not many child stars transition easily from child star to adult star....I thank God that Elijah didn't go through what many child stars end up going through: a lot of trouble as adults. Great parenting is a BIG key...so you go Elijah

Mayve when he was a child he was scared of growing up because the transition would have been difficult - luckily it wasn;t!
I think its really sweet the way  he credits his mother in nearly every interview I've ever read / heard with him. She should be very proud.

Hi

Maybe someone should ask him that question, but I guess it is a very common question to ask in interviews.

I am scared of spiders (only mid to large ones though) Don't mind money spiders.

If i see one in my flat I will scream and run out of the room, my husband will have to kill it

And Bees, wasps (anything that buzzes)

If one comes into a room where I am I will run out so it doesn't come near me.

Probably Lij's fears are  the same all we have. Being lonely or depressed.  But at least he had been lucky, I guess he can have a private time at some point.
He chose to be famous and that's the high price of fame. Unlike Princes William and Harry who were born already famous and growing up in front of the cameras.

Thats a good point to make, but I know myself that if I really loved acting and stuff and it thrust me into the spotlight, I still wouldn;t enjoy being snapped everywhere I go and stuff!

Well since everyone is speculating, from what I've read about him, I would speculate that one of his greatest fears would be losing someone very dear to him........ his mom..

Wow.

Just from reading this thread, I've discovered I have a lot in common with 'Lij -- some things we'd probably rather not have.

My father left when I was a baby and I had little or no contact with him growing up (I do now, but not as much as I'd like).

If you guys are right, we both fear failure and being alone.

I was terrified of men until I met my husband.

I already knew we had some of the same mannerisms from watching live interviews and stuff; I'll put my arm on a table and lay my head on it when I laugh really hard, or cover one side of my face with one hand when I'm shocked (I usually use my left; 'Lij uses his right).  We even have a similar "Oh my God" kind of expression when someone does or says something shocking but funny at the same time.  He got that expression during the "Hans Jensen" interview.
