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.

Good point....but where does that fear of letting people down come from....no one can be unaffected by the loss of a parent whether by divorce or death....Whether or not Elijah recognizes that some of his anxiety could come from the fear of rejection based on that early percieved rejection by his Dad it has to have left some scar.  He certainly seems in denial that it has had any effect on him...perhaps he views it as a betrayal to his Mom who has supported him emotionally since his father left.  Elijah is however obviously coping with his issues after all he is functional, well adjusted, a little anxiety/ fear tempered by a loving Mom and family is not too harmful.  Anyway  Our opinions are based on public Elijah...ive seen him several times and usually he is "on", Only once did I see him seeming a bit vulnerable and unsure...way back at comic con 2003..he seemed off...Turns out thats when he was sick pre appendectomy, obviously it must have been difficult to be ON..so the real Elijah (presumably) was there for a moment that day.

But it is all pure speculation...as we all know.

Thats interesting,...but what about on Punk'd? Surely he was 'off' then too?
I think someone might have already mentioned how scared he was then.

I'm sure he has fears, everyone does! Its just a matter of digging deep.
Personally, I don't like being alone in the house at night...

I remember one interview where the person asked him about his dad and he was trying to say it wasn't a big deal, but his eyes were getting kind of glassy.  I would imagine having no relationship with his father had a bigger effect than he likes to let on, and that could account for the void he tries to fill and being afraid of being alone, maybe.

Quote:


wow, I didn't Know his relationship with his dad was bad. thats so terrible. and for the people who said that elijah's always happy but think that maybe he's doing what he does best,acting, i agree. i have a friend who's dad was alcoholic, irresponsible( he gave her a beer then let her drive a car and she smashed into a tree noone was hurt.) and her parent divorced but never have i ever seen this girl other than happy and jumping around. shes 12 or 13 by the way in case the whole drink car thing wasn't shocking enough.

Looks like we finally have a solid answer!  Deenan found this link at Halloween, where Elijah finally states what he's scared of.  I'm sure people touched on this in the discussion:


Quote:
"I think it's like personal pursuits that scare me," says Elijah Wood. "You know, for an actor, I think I'm always scared by things that challenge me, things that are very different from things I've done before. Roles and experiences, working with people that I think are incredible, that sort of scares me."

I used to be afraid of starting new roles/jobs with people I didn't know. So you could say I used to be afraid of new experiences but not anymore, not since coming back from New Zealand. We had that in common me and Elijah to a point

All of your answers were very interesting.. It really does suck that he has no contact with his father. I am not really sure maybe he is scared of being alone and maybe he is worried he won't have some private time . I read that he gets nervous when it comes to girls. He worries that they would only date him for his fame and fortune not for the guy he really is besides an actor. I think instead of using music to fill the void he really is a music lover.
