Elijah Wood recalls the moment he farted while filming
Elijah Wood recalled his first day when filming The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring where he let out a massive fart.
“The first day of filming; day one!” Wood revealed this during an episode of Hot Ones, a YouTube series in which celebs eat spicy wings and talk about their latest projects in a lighthearted manner.
“The scene is, we are rolling down the hill after Merry and Pippin run into us, running away from Farmer Maggot’s field, having stolen a bunch of vegetables. They bang into us. We roll down the hill… And I think it was like, take two. And I had a, what is that, a concussion fart? A fart that is brought on by pressure”.
The former hobbit said that when he farted, everyone burst out laughing, and it was “a hell of a way to start filming Lord of the Rings“. This isn’t the first time that Wood has described his impressive flatulence. In a 2017 Entertainment Weekly interview, Wood referred to it as an “impact fart”, or “the fart heard ’round the Shire”.
Here is a backstage clip right after the mentioned scene where Dominic Monaghan and Billy Boyd make fun of Elijah Wood commenting when he farted while they are laughing and joking.
