Elijah speaks out on gay rumors
« on: September 14, 2005, 01:07:08 pm »

Here is an article I found just by chance. I laughed when I read this. It's from MSNBC
http://msnbc.msn.com/id/9272751/

Also by chance Elijah was on one of my local morning news shows. He said that he had to wear contacts under those goofy glasses he wears in EII to even out the magnification.

Thank you for the article, Gina. I'm glad Lij has a good sense of humour and actually surprised me by the way he likes that webpage. He's considers it hilarious When I saw that site I was pretty annoyed, but if Lij likes it, the next time I visit it I'm not going to feel upset anymore. I wish I could have his sense of humour. I'm too serious

Good to know he has a sense of humour and realises that being called gay is hardly an insult.

Thanks for that article, it made me go back on that hilarious veryverygay site, so I've cheered up after a bad day.

Ok, those comments were from the Sept. 9, 2005 appearance on Conan. Elijah was being sarcastic when he said that website (Elijah Wood is very very gay) was one of his personal favorite. If you watch that Conan he seems to be saying that he thinks it's hilarious like he is laughing at them. He also says that these people have a lot of time on there hands. I suspect he thinks it's funny that someone spends that much time getting pictures of his supposed gayness and dedicating a website to this. That article seems to make his statements sound different because you can't see how he is saying his. Like if I were to say I'm a duck quack quack. Well maybe I am a duck, or crazy or joking because you can't see me or my expression as I say this. It is just written. They add stuff inbetween what he says to make it come out the way he didn't intend them to sound. That is just bad journalism.

LilyAsh I totally agree. Elijah was politely but defintely gently bashing not only VVG but the whole gay rumour nonsense.

These news stories are all twisting it around but if any of you saw Elijah on Conan he WAS being sarcastic and you can tell he laughts AT these sites and rumours not WITH them.

Saying they have 'too much time on their hands' should tell the manip people what he really thinks of what they do. He was just being polite by saying they did good work because in a strictly artistic sense they do. But that doesn't mean he likes the whole thing.

Anyone who saw his reaction at the Prague press conference when he was given that 'gift' porn picture by those two fans and how he was obviously embarrassed, he blushed so red  it was painful to see, can see that this thing really does bother him no matter how kind he tries to be about. His saying these things are 'hilarious' doesn't really mean he really feels that way. Just look at his face in this clip.

Here's the link to that press conference. The 'gift' part is about half way through.

Don't feel bad Gina  lot's of news stories have been twisting it.

Here's one that got it almost right.
http://www.tonight.co.za/index.php?fArticleId=2874728

Here's what it says...


Quote:
Wood falls victim of gay website

September 14, 2005

Elijah Wood is the victim of an online prank telling his fans he is gay. Online jokers have started a website, elijahwoodisveryverygay, which gives photographic 'proof' proving that the Lord Of The Rings star is homosexual.

Rather than take offence at the site, Elijah has praised the people behind it for their inventive sense of humour. He told US chat show host Conan O'Brien: "There's one that's called elijahwoodisveryverygay, which is actually a personal favourite of mine, it's absolutely hilarious.

"It's this kind of joke website that maintains that they have proof that I am very, very gay in various photographs - photographic evidence of me holding hands with a male."


The handsome star also claims some obsessive Lord Of The Rings fans want the stars of the Oscar-winning trilogy to be gay. Elijah says he has been approached by fans of the series who have given him "fake" pictures of himself in compromising situations with his male co-stars.

He explained: "They want to create moments that they didn't get to see in the film, of these characters in sexual congress.

"I was actually at a film festival once and this fan came up with a gift, I open the gift in front of all these people that I'm talking to and it happens to be a photo from one of these websites of me and Dominic Monaghan making sweet love."

It's still best to just watch the Conan clip to see for yourself.

Gotta love recycled "news" (an oxymoron!)

Hmmm...I watched the Conan interview and I've seen the clip where the "fan" gave him the porn picture (by the way, which made me angry, b/c it seems like they were trying to make fun of him--and I think ANYONE in that situation would be embarrassed, especially caught off guard).

At the same time I do think Elijah is amused at how absurd the whole gay/slash thing is, particularly taking it to that extent. A lot of what we see or read on the Internet is silly. But he also knows that being gay isn't an insult, or anything "bad."  He has friends that are gay, including Ian McKellen.

I think he is showing the perfect attitude. He's very grounded, he knows what's real and what is crazy fan nonsense. He's not going to let other people's opinions or rumors affect him, as much as he can help it. It can't be something he loves hearing, but I'm glad that he's not making a big deal out of it or complaining, as other actors would, and often do.

Thanks Raewood for the link. Lij is so profesional for not get angry. But poor thing, he looks so embarrased!! God gave him the gift of patience. Otherwise, he would be furious!!. I don't blame gay people, they are born like that. So it not their fault. People who are making fun of others in hideous ways seems to have an inferiority complex or low self-steem.

I just wish some fans would show better sense, in general. What would possess anyone to give him a porn picture?!  Even if it was a doctored porn photo of him with Liv Tyler...it's just in severely bad taste.

It's just unfortunate that he has to put up with stuff like that.

I completely agree. When I met Elijah I felt that he deserved the same treatment and respect anyone would want and deserve. Just because he's famous and I bought a ticket to see him doesn't mean I can say or do anything I want. I asked him for a hug and he said yes. I asked him to sign my pants and asked if this was ok. He was wonderful and he was fun about it but he didn't owe me anything ya know. That picture situation was uncalled for. Poor guy. Man if someone gave me a picture like that on the street that I have never met I would be scared.
