Elijah ‘Frodo’ Wood Denies Saying Hollywood is a Playground for Pedophiles

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

A day after actor Elijah Wood, who played Frodo in the 3-part Lord of the Rings movies, made headlines for reportedly telling The Sunday Times that he has known about Hollywood parties thrown by pedophile rings since he was a child actor, he denies that he’d ever said that. (See TrailDust’s post, “Have you wondered how all the young stars become perverted?“)

“The Sunday Times interviewed me about my latest film but the story became about something else entirely. It prompted a number of false and misleading headlines. I had just seen a powerful documentary and I briefly spoke with the reporter about the subject which had consequences. I did not intend or expect. Lesson learned. Let me be clear: This subject of child abuse is an important one that should be discussed and properly investigated. But as I made absolutely clear to the writer, I have no first hand experience or observation of the topic, so I cannot speak with any authority beyond articles I have read and films I have seen.”
