A couple of quotes from the Sunday Times interview with Lij:

On meeting Lij for the first time:

He was 20, but he seemed like a kid; tiny, his skin almost translucent, peach-fuzz about his chin and upper lip, boyishly over-eager to please, but also terribly nervous, chewing gum non stop, smoking a lot, his nails bitten down.

On meeting him for this interview:

With large sunglasses and long, thin sideburns, he looks like any Venice hipster, but as soon as he takes off the shades, his huge, sail away blue eyes could be spotted from the shuttle Discovery. He carries himself with much more confidence and ease these days. Dressed in a generic white t-shirt and blue jeans, his almost black hair mussed up into a faint peak, he looks taller and more comfortable in his skin. He doesn't light up a cigarette until we have finished eating and, thankfully, seems to have lost his gum-chewing habit.

"spotted from the shuttle Discovery"!!! Love that. _grievousangel has very kindly transcribed the whole interview. I must say I'm amazed it actually gives the name of the place where Lij dj's "every other Tuesday". There are two pics - both ancient. On the cover its Lij at 17 - adorable but 7 years old, for God sake!! Its one of the black tshirt ones, I think from when he was publicising 'The Faculty'. Inside its the water-kicking pic from some years back.

That´s a really interesting description of a change...a very good one for Elijah.

I've never heard of The Bar in Hollywood, but then there a "millions" of bars in LA. I wonder how much longer he'll DJ there now that word is out?

Oh dear - I really hope the fans won't force him into changing his venue :(

I assume that's a UK paper? Can you get me a copy?

Then there's this: "Wood may even take a break from Hollywood to pursue his interest in music. He hopes to get a radio show on the satellite radio network Sirius."

eeeeeeeee

I can't blame him for wanting privacy, butbutbut ...

It's a UK Sunday paper - and I knew nothing about it until my husband came back from fetching our regular paper yesterday - luckily he spotted this when he was browsing & got it for me. Unfortunately, the main Sunday papers get sold pretty quick and once Sunday is gone, thats it, so I'm afraid I'm not going to be able to get you a copy. But there were no new photos, just the two old ones I mentioned. Re his remarks about taking a break etc - I think at first my brain just refused to process that idea because it was too awful to contemplate. Of course, I want him to be happy with what he's doing - but I need to see him!! And I really can't believe he'd turn his back on acting completely. I could try flinging myself at his feet & begging:) Btw - are you going to Toronto?

That's okay about the paper. Sometimes I like things in context, but in this case I have the text itself and that's what counts.

Yes. I'm going to Toronto. It would take a major natural disaster to stop me at this point. Tickets are bought, hotel room reserved, and the car gassed up.

He's so GOOD at acting, I suspect he would miss it before too long if he went away from it entirely. We like to do what we're good at doing.

But he's also a good DJ, I hear.

Sounds like he's eased off the smoking a bit maybe! *is hopeful*

But I DON'T want him to quit acting! Somebody write a really good script soon! I prefer to contemplate what Mr. Schreiber said.

"And I think people are going to see that in the next couple years, with the kind of choices that this guy makes. They're going to see a really interesting actor emerge." hopinghopinghopinghopinghoping

Oh, if only!! He's always saying that nail-biting is his worst bad habit - but that's not going to kill him - I don't care if he chews his nails down to the knuckle if only he'd stop the smoking.

I can't allow myself to even contemplate him not doing any more films - that would be just too terrible.

Hey Pauli! Thanks for sharing this article-I do love to read about him. Well, it is so nice to read somebody´s expression or notion from meeting him (and to have the same) :o)
I am so glad his dream about having record label came true..he is so sweet so genuine young man! Liev S. was right in interview about EII, he is extraordinary!
But...I can´t let to him to stop acting....He is so extraordinary actor...

Hi Allie!! Glad you enjoyed the article. I'm not even going to think about him doing no more films - it would be unbearable.
