Elijah Wood Hindered By His Youthful Looks

Subscribe Elijah Wood

LORD OF THE RINGS star ELIJAH WOOD is frequently being snubbed by movies he's desperate to star in - because he looks to young.

The 23-year-old actor - who has been appearing on the big screen since the age of eight - hopes his boyish appearance will stand him in good stead in later life, but admits at present they're hindering his goals.

He says, "Looking young can be pretty helpful, because I get away with murder sometimes.

"But I certainly lost the chance to do some parts because I looked too young for them, although it'll be great having a baby face when I'm older.

"It isn't so good now, when I want to play roles that are my age."
