Saturday, 10 August 2002
:: YAY!!! LOTR IS NOW OUT!!!! :) I got it the other day but it was all faulty.. (Bad Manufacturer) so I brought another one today and it did the same thing... guess I'll have to just hire it out :(:(
:: So sorry I havn't update in ages... i feel so slack! anyway i'm sure you know why :) A big thankyou to Jochen & Lucy for all their help! You rock guys! :o)
::Anyway, I seem to have quite a bit of news today and a new picture from Elijah's appearance at 'Comic Con' I never even knew he attended till just now :) Someone (Sorry, you didn't mention your name) tells me that there will soon be a story about Elijah falling off a washing machine.. Ok, not too sure what that is about.. :)
:: Hobbit Angel sends us a link to a very interesting website Here which has heaps of pictures of all the celebrities (including Elijah) that attended Comic Con, if your interested, as well as a write up about a breakfast which Dom Monaghan attended..
:: Alyssa send us some information abut Elijah from some magazines..
One is from Star magazine, dated August 6th. It says: Who knew Hobbits like macaroni and cheese? That's what Lord of the Rings star Elijah Wood was heard asking for at Ralph's market on Sunsey Boulevard....
As Frodo Baggins in Lord of the Rings, Elijah Wood battles goblins, trolls, and some really ugly bad guys to return an evil ring to its place of origin so it can be destroyed. In real life, however, the ring ended up at Wood's L.A. home. Director Peter Jackson gave the plain gold band to the young star as a gift after filming of the trilogy wrapped in December 2000. Wood doesn't dare wear it, but not because he's afraid of turning to the dark side. He's just afraid of losing it, so he keeps it in a pouch inside a small wooden box.
:: Rene sent me a link to a site where you can view the script from 'The Faculty' Here I'm not sure if anyone is really interested in it, I thought it'd post it anyway :)
:: Bianca sends us a little review about when her friend saw Elijah ...
My best friend was at City Walk in Hollywood,California on the 20th of July and she bumped into elijah wood! she was just walking and she kinda ran into him but kept walking. I couldnt believe her. So anyways he was wearing all black and was with some guy and he was talking on a silver nokia.
:: I have some rare interviews with Elijah to post but i have to firstly work out where to type them up cause there is no direct link to them, so either Lucy or I will post them in another update :)
:: Someone (Sorry I forgot your name) sent me a 'Wanted' picture of Elijah's Neck (Don't ask :)) and since I found it rather amusing, I thought you'd like to see it too Here
:: Also... Alyssa is actually the one who sent me the link to the 'Tom Thumb and Thumbellina Trailer' and I just passed it on to Lucy :)
Thanks girl! :)
Saturday, 10 August 2002

Well then check out Dede's house: here Now if that isn't obsessed, then i don't know what is! If you think you're a bigger fan, e-mail and give me proof! Thanks for sharing that Dede!

:: Some news sent to us by HobbitAngel (Thanks!!) of an Elijah sighting - please note, it may or may not be true:
Source: Globe Magazine 08-13-02 Page 14 The Globe Dish "Lord of the Road"
Frodo was seen behind the wheel of his flashy BMW Z8 recently.With all the windows down,and cranking Aerosmith full volume.Sporting dark sunglasses and smoking an unfiltered cigarette ala James Dean,Frodo paused at a stoplight to turn to one of my spies in the car next to his and guiltily say"Life is good."To which my spy replied"Yeah.Life's great when you're are millionaire movie star and barely 21."When the lught turned green,Hobbit Boy put the pedal to the medal and left my spy in a whirl of smoke.
:: Veronica sent me the link to a site called The Spoof of the Rings where you can download clips of various actors of the Fellowship singing - definately one to check out, lol. Thanks Veronica!

:: Well first of all, i decided to move the messageboards to a better server which
doesn't have a billion pop-ups. However that means that you'll all have to sign
up again and start posting again. Sorry about that. The new boards are located at:
so please go, sign up and start posting :) But if i get lots of e-mails from
people who are seriously against this change, then it'll be moved back to the
original ezboards, so i won't delete it. Have fun :)|

:: Damn these articles about Elijah's height. Yet another article about short actors
appeared in the Sunday Magazine from Sydney's The Sunday Telegraph. Didn't
say very much about Lij, just refered to him as being 'vertically challenged'
*gives dirty look to whoever wrote this* hehe, but he looks cute.
:: OMG, how lucky is this girl?
i just went to the comic con and met dominic monaghan it was sooo cool!!! i really
wanted to see elijah wood but i didnt see him, anyways i was walking by the lord
of the rings booth and there was this big croud standing around this one guy i got

him i thought it was the guy from malcom in the middle (the older brother) but the
i saw the sighn that said get a chance to meet Merry from LOTR soo i sat in line
for 2 to 3 hours to get his autograph, but omg it was worth it he was totally nice
he would sit there and talk to you forever.
When i got up there i was really nervous i asked him to sign my poster and he said sure

part scotish and greek. (my stomic was all in knots) he said "ya im part irish, you
can tell by my voice" Then he asked how to spell my name i told him then he even
noticed that they spelled it wrong on my name tag!! his body gard are some other guy
(scotish to) was like "that sucks." Then he said "i like your hair. how did youn do

::Hey Everyone! Hope you all had a nice weekend :):) Ok first of all,
I just want to ask you, could you PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE when your
sending me news, tell me where it's from?! cause I recently got an
email from someone telling me that that 'wanted picture' of Elijah
I posted in the last update was from
now I really don't want to get into trouble over it, so if you could
do that, that would be awesome :)
::I found 2 new rare pictures of Elijah when he was younger...
[Pic 1] and
::Melanie & Elizabeth send me the story about Elijah falling of a washing
machine... Dom is actually the one who told the story, at Comic Con
2002.. it's also from
Bag End Inn
although I think Melanie actually attended Comic Con because she sent
this too me a while back... :) *Note-this aint exactly 'PG' rated...
He said at the time it was awful but he looks back fondly on it
now. They were filming the Midgewater Marshes scenes (which he said
we’d see on the DVD because they got cut from the movie by some
"dickhead at New Line.") He said they were just starting
to film when it started to snow big huge flakes, and they were still
having fun, since the four hobbits were already barefoot and in water
up to their knees, "getting pushed in by Viggo every two
minutes." He said the 1st assistant director wanted to call it,
but Peter didn’t and they didn’t, so they kept filming for a while,
but eventually it became clear that they’d have to go or have to stay
there on site. So they all headed back to the hotel and ended up
sitting on washing machines getting out of makeup. Viggo brought in
a big bottle of whiskey and they sat around getting drunk and telling
stories. Elijah was apparently sitting on the last washer in a row,
which was just a couple of feet away from the wall on that side, and
was telling a crazy stoy. When he finished, Dom, drunk, laughed and
pushed at him and Elijah fell off over the side of the washer and into
the little space wth just his legs sticking up!
:: Awwww, lol, poor Elijah! hope he wasnt too badly injured :):)
::Vanessa sent us an article which is only about LOTR mainly...
LONDON (Variety) "The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring" has
sneaked past "Harry Potter and the Wizard's Stone" to set a record for
the highest first-day video sales ever in the U.K. "Lord of the Rings"
sold 1.27 million units on Tuesday, compared with the 1.25 million sales
racked up by "Harry Potter" in its first 24 hours of release. The figure
for Peter Jackson's movie, which includes VHS and DVD sales, is all the
more impressive because the video was released on a Tuesday, whereas
"Harry Potter" went on sale on a Saturday.
:: Thankyou Vanessa!
::Kristy sent us some news about what Mandy Moore quoted about Elijah....
" Elijah Wood is one of the nicest people you'll ever meet. His eyes tell
such a story." How True! :)
::And then what Mandy said about both Franka & Elijah which is really sweet...
"This past April while I was filming the movie, Try Seventeen, I celebrated
my 18th birthday. We were in Vancouver and it was very rainy and dreary.
I sat in my trailor all day and didn't do anything so it was kind of a
bummer. But, the cool thing was, that my co-stars Elijah Wood and Franka
Potente (from the Bourne Identity), surprised me with a cake, flowers,
and they sang "happy birthday" to me. It was really nice. It was such an
honor to make a film with them because they're so amazingly talented. I
was lucky to be apart of this project"
::Maggie sent me this gorgeous picture, i've never seen before... Here
::Thankyou so much Maggie!
::Well that's all I have for now!
::Oh, and I just want to say Congratulations to Sean Astin & His wife, Christine
on the birth of their second daughter! How Sweet!! :)
::Bye Everyone! Take Care!

Thursday, 15 August 2002
::Hello! Well according to TORn
'Try Seventeen' will be shown at the Toronto International Film Festival, held from
Sept 5-14.. Lucky Canadians! Anyone who ends up seeing it, please send either Lucy or I a review! :)
::Alyssa sends us some reviews of LOTR and 'The Adventures of Tom Thumb & Thumbellina'
from Entertainment Weekly Magazine..
Elvish Lines! The First installment of The Lord of the Rings is a rockin' old-school
epic. by Troy Patterson For J. R. R. Tolkien's fan base of dorkish hippies - or is
it hippie-ish dorks? - it's the coolest movie ever, dude. If you are of a certain
mind-set (reflexively cynical, wary of all endevoures requiring elves), this fact
was a reason not to catch that thing with the hobbits. Make amends: The Lord of the
Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring is grand enough to earn a spot alongside such film
epics as Lawrence of Arabia and Star Wars. To watch Peter Jackson's adaptation of
Tolkien's novel is to succumb gladly to fairy dust as the forces of good - a naif
called Frodo (Elijah Wood), a wizened wizards (Ian McKellen), and a smoldering loner
(Viggo Mortenson) among them - embark on an old-fashioned quest. Jackson does the
basic things (sinister silhouettes, racing white steeds, the metallic rasp of swords
unsheathed in stereo) with exquisite simplicity. And he does the complex things, like
knocking the heart from your chest with the spectacle of impossibly noble heros placed
in an outsized peril, simply exquisitily. There is a powerful sense of motion - over
blinding fields, through lairs of unlimited darkness- into a fully imagined world where
magic naturally exists. = A - What we said then: "....a great pictue, a triumphant picture,
a joyfully conceived work of cinema...." A
The Adventures of Tom Thumb & Thumbelina Voices by Jennifer Love Hewitt and Elijah Wood
Good idea to combine a Brothers Grimm tale and Hans Christian Anderson story about little
people for the little people, no? It's obvious from the cast list - which also includes
Peter Gallagher, Bebe Neuwirth, and Rachel Griffiths - that the filmmakers have pulled
out all the stops. But star wattage alone (yes,Hewitt can sing- and rather sweetly) and a
few cute animals (the mouse band plays a mean cha-cha) cannot enliven lackluster animation
and a sluggish plot that may leave less patient viewers fidgeting in their seats. = C+
::Lucy also posted a short article from Globe Magazine the other day and it said that Elijah
drove a BMW Z8... well anyway Alyssa send me a picture of a BMW Z8 and I thought
you'd like to see what it looks like... [BMW Z8]
Thanks Alyssa! :)
::Quaxo sent me a cool Elijah collage she made... [Collage]
::Rachel also tells me that she went to see the new movie 'Signs' the other day and
'The Two Towers' Trailer was played... Just though you'd like to know... so if you want
to actually go and see 'Signs' you can have a little bonus :)
Friday, 16 August 2002
:: Well the messageboard
seems to be down right now...damn thing, this ain't a good sign. Ah well, maybe it'll
just fix itself (sure, keep telling yourself that)
:: Hannah sent me some pics of Elijah from E!'s Look at Hollywood Kids. Yes, they are really
old, but geez, he looks so damn cute!
:: Woohoo! Enlarged Wireimage pics :) Uta has very kindly sent me these pictures from Comic Con:
Thankyou so much Uta!
:: Sorry everyone, but i don't know what happened to
elijahwoodinc.com, but it went down
before, but it came back, so keep your fingers crossed. I guess you'll have to settle for
this site for a while ;)
Wednesday, 21 August 2002

Sunday, 25 August 2002
:: Don't know why i'm updating, there's no news and i've got so much to do. Just a favour,
if you have a question about Elijah or something relating to Elijah, lotr, or whatever
that doesn't necessarily have to be answered by me, could you please ask it on the
It's a real pain having to spend all of my time on the net answering the same questions over and
over again. Also, since i don't get on much anymore, it fills my inbox and it shuts it down.
So please, try just send me news or stuff that you want to ask me specifically.

The Waiting for Frodo Comic Strip

:: An excerpt from an article from a the German Newspaper "Bild am Sonntag"
about the whole Franka/Elijah thing:
Q.: After nearly five years you have broken up with director Tom Tykwer. The new
man in your life is US star Elijah Wood.
F.P.: I don’t want to say anything to this.
Q.: But you are a couple?
F.P.: No. I would not put it that way.
Q.: But there are these explicit pictures of you and Mr. Wood looking very much
in love... Are these kisses all water under the bridge now?
F.P.: I don’t want to talk about that!
Q.: Okay. Only one more question: the relationship with Tom Tykwer is definitely
off - or is it?
Thanks Simone and Kerstin!
