l-o-t-r:

‘Yet between the brothers there was great love, and had been since childhood, when Boromir was the helper and protector of Faramir. No jealousy or rivalry had arisen between them since, for their father’s favour or for the praise of men. It did not seem possible to Faramir that any one in Gondor could rival Boromir, heir of Denethor, Captain of the White Tower; and of like mind was Boromir.’

l-o-t-r:

Can I ask why you have ‘trees’ written on your hand?
Dominic Monaghan:
That is a very good question. Billy and I realized that these press tours are kind of a stage for us to talk about whatever issues we think are important. And with this movie, being Merry and Pippin up a tree, and a tree eventually doing his bit to save mankind, we think that it would be a good thing to get into the world’s psyche through the media that we need to save the trees.

You know, Tolkien was talking about this in the 1940s and it doesn’t seem to have been a problem that’s been addressed. I’ve been hanging out with people who work for Greenpeace in Los Angeles. They were telling me that the size of eleven football pitches of rain forest are destroyed every single day. And don’t come back. This is something that will eventually end up killing us. And ending the world because the forests are the lungs of the world. They’re what help us breathe and we seem hell-bent on this war for oil which, at the end of the day, is a war for money and power. And I think it’s ridiculous when the real things that we should be concerning ourselves with are continuing to live on this planet. And it won’t happen — it just simply won’t happen if the forests are destroyed.

At the moment, there’s something going through New Line which — fingers crossed — will happen and involve planting trees on every single continent in the world. Through the Lord of the Rings movie. We’d like to get people concerned with preserving their environment. I think it’s the most important issue today. Otherwise there won’t be a world to save.

l-o-t-r:

“Liv Tyler, when I first arrived on set I thought, “That’s Liv Tyler, she’s pretty famous.” I’m the sort of person that doesn’t move forward to people and be like, “Hey, I’m your new best friend!” I’m not like that, give them their space, they’re famous, they must be sick of people who want to get close to them all the time. But she came straight over to me, which is sort of quite un-actress type behavior and she gave me a huge hug and said, “I’m so glad you’re here! There’s another woman here now! It’s all been men! We can do things together! We can paint nails!"
