Elijah Wood Spills Secrets Of His "One Ring" In Just 60 Seconds

comments

elijah As if the droll FX comedy Wilfred didn't make us love Elijah Wood, his totally cool, down-to-middle-earth attitude (plus a keen Band of Outsiders-laden fashion sense) really make us fear that we might have a Hobbit fetish. We caught the star spinning some laid-back soul tunes at Bushmills' "Since Way Back" event, and he graciously let us have 60 seconds with him — exactly the amount of time he had until his vinyl record ran out and he needed to go back to the decks (so impressive) — to talk to us about how Hebrew is confused for Elvish, and how light purple freaks him out.

Refinery29: What is your least favorite color?
Elijah Wood: "Mauve?"[But said like moh-ve, rhyming with brogue.]

R29: Is that how you say it?
Wood: "Or mauve? I have no idea. You say mauve. I say mohve. Let's call the whole thing off?"

R29: I love your jacket. Was this your originally planned outfit?
Wood: "I've been wearing this all day. I almost changed into a new Band Of Outsiders top, but I decided to stick with what I'm wearing."

R29: Are you going to see their show?
Wood: "No, I'm not going to be here. I'll be back in Los Angeles.".

R29: So, do you have a good luck charm?
Wood: "I have a ring that I always wear. I don't know if I really consider it good luck, but it's one of those things that I can't imagine not having on."

R29: Do people ever make the One Ring joke?
Wood: Yeah. It's so funny, because it has script on it in Hebrew. So people assume, and will come up to me and say, 'Is that the ring?' as if I would wear the ring. I wouldn't, for the record."
