Alright everyone, are you sitting down? Today, on a late-night run to the grocery store for some Guinness, fake I.D. in hand, who should I run into but Viggo Mortensen himself! (Did I tell you all I lived in L.A.?) Who knew, movie starts shop for their own deoderant! I complimented him on his portrayal of Aragorn, particularly the swordplay (we have discussed it extensively here at the Downs). I told him that Maril was a big fan as well. I also asked him about the next movie, but he just pressed a finger to his lips. He then agreed to sign my t-shirt in front of the gaping check-out lady!<p>[ April 01, 2002: Message edited by: Lush ]

Way cool!!!!!! No way, that's a great moment. (I've seen your picture on your website, I don't think it took much convincing to get him to sign your T-shirt. ) You must post a photo of your Signed T on the Downs. What a treat!<P>Hey, did his accent sound much like it does in the movie?<P>-Maril<p>[ April 01, 2002: Message edited by: Marileangorifurnimaluim ]

I just couldn't resist!<BR>I promise that if I do ever meet Viggo, I will, of course, tell him 'hello' from all of his fans, get his autograph, and ask him to sign my chest (nicely).

Glad I could provide a laugh, Starbreeze. I <I>wish</I> it was true! Then again, if I really did run into "Aragorn" while buying beer, I doubt I would act that cool. I would try my best, of course. Though it would probably be something more along the lines of: "Ahhhh...." *thud*<P>Or, at my very best,: "So, want to help me finish this six-pack?"<p>[ April 01, 2002: Message edited by: Lush ]

Lush, eto bilo zlaya shutka! (Not sure if "zlaya" is quite right, but it *feels* right). And you know, I might even have gone for it if I'd read it before the guy who runs my old college's message board decided to erase everyone's personal webpage as an April fool - after that, of course, no way was I forgetting. Very good, though .

Lush
04-01-2002, 10:42 PM
Bravo Kalimac! Your only error is that it should be "bila" not "bilo." <BR>Once again, I am sorry...Sorry because it's not true, and I wish that it was! Hehehehe. These crushes really do die hard.

Translated from Russian, "eto bila zlaya shutka" means-<B>this was a cruel joke</B>. I disagree, of course. <BR>Kalimac, once again, everything is right, except for the worn "durnit'sa." The word "glupit'sa" fits much better. <BR>Hmm...When did this become a Russian 101 thread?

Galadrie1
04-02-2002, 07:25 PM
lol, good joke. it was kinda unconvincing that anyone could act so calm and cool in front of a major movie star. one day my friend asked me "What would you do if Elijah Wood walked across our school-ground one day while we were out for lunch" and i just thought: "faint."

Birdland
04-02-2002, 07:30 PM
Good one, Lush. I fell for it because it sounded so...so...L.A.! <P>By the way: I met the first husband of Viggo's ex-wife. Let's play "Six Degrees of Separation"!

Kalimac
04-02-2002, 09:49 PM
Lush - OK, I apologize for turning it into Russian 101 - just trying to think of a slightly more novel way to express "Hey, that was good April Fool!" As for "durnitsa", well, that's what you get when the only way to maintain your vocabulary is to read a lot - books don't always have the most, ahem, current terminology. "Zlaya" I just think sounds cool, no matter how appropriate .<P>Meeting a movie star - never happened to me, though I did once meet a local stage actor I had a huge crush on. The thing was, I had no idea it was him until it was over! (The wonders of stage makeup). So I actually was fairly casual with him, but if I'd known it was him I would have tried to act casual and failed miserably - probably stuttered like crazy the way I do in tense situations . Multiply that by about a hundred for meeting any of the LOTR actors (even the really minor ones - the hobbit who says "Who Goes There" etc).

No way.. Viggo and Cristopher Lee were in Denmark for the premiere?? <P>That must have been in Copenhagen and that's not at all far from where I live.. just a few hours on the train. I wish I knew that.<P>And as far as I know Orlando Bloom, Dominic Monaghan, Sean Bean, Ian Holmes and Billy Boyd all live in the UK. Although I think they're travelling between the UK and the US quite a lot.. because of movie offers and things. I'm not sure about Ian McKellen though. He's English.. but I think he lives in the US right now, because he's doing a play on Broadway or something!?<BR>What about Cristopher Lee?

Polly Sandybanks
04-03-2002, 10:57 AM
Oh.. and Elijah Wood lives in LA. Although he's from Iowa or someplace like that.. originally. But he's lived in L.A. since he started making movies when he was about 6 or 7.<P>Hmm.. does Sean Astin also live in L.A.??<P>Who else?<P>I'm going there this summer.. I probably won't meet anyone famous anyway.. but the chances are quite a lot bigger there than they are in this little town in Sweden where I live.

Good one Lush! It had me laughing!<P>Elijah and Sean Astin live in L.A.; Elijah's family lives in Santa Monica. I know that Viggo is American, but I don't know where he lives.<P>I <I>might</I> have emailed Elijah and he <I>might</I> have replied back. I emailed this guy who seemed like he was Elijah...he replied three times, every time I emailed him. So...it could be him, or it couldn't be. You never know with people these days.

A very small amount of decent, handsome men live in North Carolina. The rest are mostly the tipsy community college drop-outs who yell inappropriate comments at me from the windows of their pick-up trucks. And we don't have many famous people here. The Royal Shakespeare Company stopped by in February, but penniless Lush was too swamped with insurance payments to see them. <BR>I'm going out tonight, to experience more of the fabulous, non-existent night-life!<BR>As for Viggo...He could be charitable and drop by for a visit. I would promise not to make any "big sword" jokes in his presence!

Well, actually I got to meet Richard Gere once. That was pre-Pretty Woman, post-American Gigalo. It was at a hearing on human rights abuses in Tibet in DC. Genuinely nice guy - earnest. Chatty. Very Buddhist. Said he hated the cameras following him, so he just took them to the real stories.<P>My friends were ga-ga, but one or two played it off pretty well. I was pretty level-headed, but that was because I'd never heard of him. I finally asked: "I'm sorry - what were you in? I know your name, but I just can't.." He found that a little discouraging. His career was in a slump at the time. When Pretty Woman came out and was hit, I was personally thrilled for him. No more people like me wondering who he was.

Lush
04-06-2002, 10:03 PM
<I>Only</I> Maril could make Richard Gere cry! There is no other that compares! Congrats on your personal title, by the way, it's very you...<BR>To try and marginally get on subject here, has anyone read the <I>Rolling Stone</I> interview with Elijah Wood? It's in the one with Shakira on the cover. In the course of the interview, Elijah discloses that while shooting the movies, Viggo Mortensen became totally obsessed with a certain word which I will not even attempt to hint at here, for fear that the Barrow-Wight will slap a scarlet "A" on my chest, and ban me for all eternity...It's very funny!!!

Why Thank you, Lush! I am impressed with the unique brilliance of your title, and I must say it suits you well.<P>Actually, my title was going to be "Eerie Spectre of the Old Forest" but the BW requested brevity please, Maril?<P><I>Must</I> read that article. Both Elijah and Viggo seem to be ve-ry interesting characters. Let us not be hasty, but I think I rather like them both.<P> Maril

Lush
04-06-2002, 10:29 PM
While we're congratulating each other, let me say that my personal title (which, by the way, took some time to create, since my initial choices were not "dark" enough, though they were funny, right Barrow-Wight?)was taken from Tolkien's description of Aragorn's first impression of owyn: "...and thought her fair, fair and cold, like a morning of pale spring..." Yeah, that's me!<BR>As for the article, do check it out. You find out some very interesting things about Elijah (he comes off as both scary and touching), and Viggo's verbal preferences!

Kalimac
04-06-2002, 10:46 PM
Sigh...I'm looking forward to getting my own title (already trying to think of some ). I read the RS article online actually, in a (comparatively) rare moment of looking up celebrity info online [blush]. It was pretty good, and rather funny in parts. Certainly he sounded about as normal as someone could who had grown up those circumstances. Though I'll admit to being slightly amused by the passage about how when he was two he locked his mother out of the kitchen and proceeded to throw everything around, and the heavy-breathing Dark Implications the writer made by saying "They say he knew exactly what he was doing." Come on, when I was three years old I locked my mother out of the house (accidentally, but still) and (I am told) wouldn't let her back in, thinking with perverse three-year-old logic that it was funny. A belief that I quickly got over, BTW, once she called the fire department to let her in. All it means is that I was a regular toddler brat, not some sort of fascinating, vaguely Satanic being in embryo. And anyway, what little kid doesn't like playing with the pots in the kitchen? I think they went a tad overboard on that one.

Speaking of meeting famous people (and this is NO APRIL FOOL'S JOKE NOW) I met Bruce from the Beach Boys tonight, backstage at the show here in Charlotte.<BR>My aunt's boyfriend is, apparently pretty goods friends with him (he is in California a lot) and they got us backstage passes. <BR>I didn't recognize any of the Beach Boys!<BR>This sweet older guy in a baseball cap came over to me, while I was sitting on the couch, sipping my beer, trying to button up my shirt the right way, and said, "get off your butt and go get some food in there."<BR>I said, "got more beer?"<BR>He said, "yes, babe."<BR>I said, "thank you, sweetie."<BR>I went in, got my beer, checked myself out in the mirror, almost tripped over the person who turned out to be the drummer, and went back to sit on the couch. <BR>Then the sweet older man crouched in front of me and said, "Honey, you are so lucky, you have your whole life ahead of you. You're going to have so much fun."<BR>I beamed. I though, here is this sweet little old guy, and he's being so nice!<BR>Then my aunt's boyfriend walked by and said, "oh, were you just talking to Bruce? He's one of the founding members of the Beach Boys!"<BR>Needless to say, I barely missed spilling my beer all over myself!!! How very <I>cool</I> of me...NOT!!!<BR>Guess I should refine the celebrity-meeting technique.

Actually, I recognized the quote describing Eowyn.. what was the rest of it? Off the top of my head it went "..like a lily in the first bloom of spring, caught untimely by frost..." no, that's not it. Anyways, I thought it brilliant and original to pull a "dead" quote out of such an unexpected place. Take a bow. <P>Now to read that article, thank you, Elijah seems both intelligent and refreshingly normal from what I've read of him in the (recent) past.<BR>********<BR>Okay, just read it. Kid's too smart for words. Having finished an idealistic fantasy adventure epic that will imprint that role on everyone's minds for the next three years at least, he's already cultivating and broadcasting 'hip' 'modern' 'dark.' Playing up the music geek angle for the Rolling Stone. Sounds like he has a good agent. <P>The RS seems tobe cynically hunting for the ways this young guy will crash and burn in his success, trying to predict the manner of it.<P><UL TYPE=SQUARE><LI>Difficult relationship with your father, eh?<BR><LI>Going overboard with the women yet? No?<BR><LI>Not much of a party boy, eh? Only vice is clove cigarettes, okay, you'll miss <I>that</I> ride.<BR><LI>Limited high school social experience.. hmmm.<BR><LI>Cutting the ties with Mamma just when the fame really hits, eh?<BR><LI>So you gloss over the darkness by being open but distant, eh? Don't like to look too closely, don't like to bring it into the light even in your performances? <P>Aha. Gotcha.</UL><P>RS guy smiles smugly to himself: this is gonna be spectacular. Only his Mom to keep his feet on the ground (and that's going by the wayside), the social whirl is new, and he doesn't like to look at the worst in himself, not enough to keep it in check...<p>[ April 08, 2002: Message edited by: Marileangorifurnimaluim ]

Concerning the <I>Rolling Stone</I> interview with Elijah: while the content was great (and the tidbit on Viggo really brightened my day), the writer himself appeared to be lacking, as many of you have said. <BR>No surprise there! This is the same magazine whose esteemed writers try to make Britney Spears seem like the Mona Lisa of the new millennium (hah), work overtime to keep record labels happy, and are slowly degenetaring to the Neanderthal-like status of the scribes (if you can even call them that) at <I>The National Enquirer</I>.

I got an invitation to my state's House of Representatives because I was spelling bee finalist, but I didn't go. Waste of time for me.

I want to meet <I>writers</I>. Much more interesting than most actors. I want to meet Wally Lamb, Kate Atkinson, and...J.R.R. Tolkien. Heh. <BR>Though Viggo is an artist, so he is probably not entirely soul-less. Not by a long shot, I hope.

One time I saw Penn from Penn and Teller eating outside at this cafe... There were all these really dressed up people standing there, and I had just finished a very sweaty and intense fencing practice, so I didn't hang around... <P>In response to Kalimac's April 6 post, one time my mom was changing my bro's diaper, adn he started to go. I thought this was hialrious, and I couldn't stop laughing (I was about 3 at the time). She was holding him so he wouldn't pee on her or anything but the floor, and yelling at me to go get a diaper or something. I don't remember. I just remember laughing so hard I couldn't walk, and kind of crawling and collapsing hysterically two feet from the door. It was so funny to me at the time. It foreshadowed a bad habit of laughing at all the wrong thigns at all the wrong times... <P>But hey. It's all good. <P>May your luck exceed the stench of your oxters.
