Liv Hadn't Read Lord of the Rings

Lord Of The Rings: The Fellowship Of The Ring (2001) star LIV TYLER felt like an "ignoramus" when she was offered a part in the movie - because she'd never read the book.

The gorgeous thespian says that she's now fully clued up as to what the work is all about. She says, "When they approached me to play the role I had to admit I'd never read the book. "I felt like a complete ignoramus because it's so well known. "But I'm fully clued up now and I know what it's all about.

Tyler even took her dedication to the role as far as learning to speak Elvish. She explains, "
It's a legitimate language. There are only a certain amount of people in the world who can speak it, like Oxford professors and what not. "It's such a beautiful language too, it's really brilliant - I can even speak a few lines." (JM/WN/PDD)
