I've been reading so many differing reactions to the pics of Elijah in Cannes. I've decided it doesn't really matter that much what he does to himself - he always looks bloody gorgeous!! Even with a tattooed, bald head, or lots of face fuzz - I can still see the Lij loveliness shining through - and as someone else remarked (can't remember who, sorry) he can't disguise those eyes (except when he wears shades!!). They are still those exact same eyes that bored into my soul that very first time I saw them - as Frodo leapt up from under the tree at the sound of Gandalf. I can understand why he wants to look older - he's been teased mercilessly about his youthful appearance and can't see this as the actual blessing it is. I do think he looks good with the beard, quite distinguished in fact - but he's only 25, there are plenty of years ahead to look distinguished, he doesn't need to do that yet. But if I could choose, I would always have him completely clean-shaven. His features are too beautiful to hide. The beard hides the lovely cleft in his chin, and the moustache encroaches onto that sensuous top lip. I have a thing about his top lip - when his face is in repose, not smiling, it is just - erotic is the only word that comes to mind. To demonstrate, I'm posting one of my favourite pics of Lij as himself, I find it mesmerising. I've had to scan it from the LOTR fan club mag 'cos the online versions aren't too good, and this scan doesn't really do justice to the pic, which in the mag is perfection. annwyn55 - I know you were feeling the need for pics like this yesterday - hope you enjoy. Keep scrolling down -I've posted two close-up scans - couldn't decide which one to post - plus a full-length version.







It's a long time since I've listened to Emmylou - and this one I'm playing is probably my favourite. With that pic of Lij & this song playing - I'm covered in goosebumps:)

My God, he's the most beautiful thing I've ever seen.

Amen to that:)

We actually saw Emmylou on stage some years ago - here in Birmingham - only not that Birmingham!! I couldn't stop playing that song last night - and it's still running through my head this morning at work!!

Oh, Not Alone - beautiful shot! Thanks for posting it. Lips, eyes, nose, jaw, cheeks, brow, eyes - it's just a great face. Luscious, pure, erotic, noble, striking, endearing, gorgeous, sweet. It does them all.

What is all this I am hearing about a beard. (I am going through my f-list backwards, from most recent and this is where I am at right now - keep reading about the beard - do people mean that little bit of chin and jaw stuff he's been wearing on and off for a few years, like he's wearing in those shaved-head pics? Or has he grown a real beard?

Maybe I'll see a link if I keep scrolling backwards to previous posts.

A resounding 'yes' to all of those!!

I'm sure you'll have found the Cannes pics by now, but just in case:


As you will see, the hair is growing back, thank goodness - but he's hung onto the facial hair he had for Day Zero and its flourishing. I don't mind the beard too much, but I'd rather he did away with it - it's the moustache I have a problem with - never really liked them:( But, as I said - it's still Lij:)

Since I learned to know Elijah as Frodo, that's the look -- and age -- that will always be most dear to me. But I wish him happiness and successful and inner peace with whatever he does, and however he chooses to look.

That's certainly true for me too. But it does seem that however drastically he tries to change his appearance, he still has that special unique something that is Elijah - and I'll never really know exactly what that 'something' is, only that it can never be hidden:)

Elijah brought Frodo to life, to exist companionably alongside the book Frodo whom I have loved for decades. Elijah has proven to be Frodo-like in many ways - a light glows within him - and I will always be interested in seeing him, and hope that wonderful things happen for him. Yet, I loved Frodo first - and still - and always.

Gorgeous pictures of him then, and he becomes more beautiful with each year. Still glowing, despite tattoos and baldness and fuzz. Amazing.

Thank you for the pics!

That is so very true. He has always said that Frodo will remain as a part of him, and no matter how many other roles he takes on that does seem to be the case. And yes, the light always shines through, no matter what he does with his appearance - thank goodness:)

That is a lovely pic. I never thought that much about his upper lip before. Thanks for giving me that focus point. ;-) I like the clean-shaven look much better too. But, I think he manages to look good no matter what.

It's not that I have anything against his bottom lip - which is also luscious beyond words - but there's just a certain something about that top lip:D Happy focussing!!

Oh lovely! That's one of my favourite photoshoots ever.

And you know, hairy!Elijah is actually growing on me - as long as I look at his eyes and try to forget the unfortunate associations of the beard. He's still my Elijah underneath it all, and this too shall pass. Thank you, luv.

I never thought that much about his upper lip before. His upper lip, lower lip, the cleft in his chin, his jaw, his neck, his hands... I'm afraid I've spent a great deal of time contemplating each and every one of them (as well as his unseen parts). 'Sensuous' and 'erotic' describe him perfectly!

Same here - one of my favourite pastimes, in fact!!

(as well as his unseen parts).

Well, if the Iggy Pop film goes ahead, they may not remain unseen for too much longer. Oh dear - can't believe I actually said that!! I'm sure all my Lij/Frodo perving is earning me a first-class ticket to hell:D

I don't mind what look he decides to have -I'm much more attracted to the whole image he has -its a curious mixture and almost like a chameleon. Sometimes vulnerable, sometimes assured, confident. When I met him the way he gave his total interest to Ru and I was amazing to me. So many aspects fascinate me in this man. Only one thing gets me. I wish he'd stop wearing those undershirt things! That was a gorgeous black shirt -and the white thing looked completely daft- but then thats another thing thats part of his charm ina way -he doesn't particularly care!

I think that probably sums up what I've been trying to get at with some of my other replies - that it doesn't matter what he does with his appearance - the essential, unique thing that is him still shines through - and of course so much of that comes from the inside. I loved hearing about his meeting with you and Ru - he was so sweet to you both, wasn't he? That is a day that is also etched into my memory, my very first meeting with him. I saw the undershirt discussion and I immediately thought - that is just so Elijah - no-one else would do that - and I just love him for it:)

Thank you dear for posting those pics, who wouldn't need them.
He is gorgeous, simply gorgeous, you said it all above.
I couldn't have said it better.

Have a nice weekend Pauline! *big hugs*

Thanks for these. They represent my favorite Elijah. When I look at them, then at him now, I feel like a mother who wishes her son would stay a child. Silly, really. But it is wonderful that we have so many photos of him at every age to look back on.

Yes, I know what you mean. And the annoying thing is that if he didn't keep trying actively to look older - he wouldn't look all that much different to how he did back then - I'm thinking about the Punk'd thing which was very recent, and yet he looked incredibly young in that. As I said, I understand why he does it - but I wish he wouldn't!! But yes, it is great that we have all these pics - and films of course - to keep that beauty frozen in time:)

Thanks for these lovely pics. The bald look is still a shock to me...and it makes me worry about his apparently receding hairline! Ah well. As long as he's happy, and he does appear to be happy.

You're welcome:) I can't really decide if his hairline is receding or not - I've compared the latest pics to those he had taken when he shaved his head at the end of 2002, and I can't really see much difference, or if there is its only very slight. I think we shall see him with hair for quite a long time yet - if only he doesn't keep shaving it off!! He does always seem a happy little soul, doesn't he? Thanks for friending me, btw - have friended you back:)

Me too - he's beautiful whatever he does with himself. I wonder what he'll have in store for us at LFCC:)
