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:)

I'm much more attracted to the whole image he has

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:)
