Elijah Wood says Brit co-stars taught him to swear
Lord Of The Rings star Elijah Wood says
his British co-stars have taught him some new swear words.
The US actor picked up a range of new insults from the likes of Ian McKellen, Sean Bean and Christopher Lee.
Wood now calls ugly people "minger" and knows that when someone's very drunk they're "monged."
The Mirror reports that Wood tells next month's Arena magazine: "I fell in love with the 'c' word. I used to hate it but when used correctly, it's brilliant. Especially with the accent.
"What else do I love? B*ll***s! Knackered! Minger! And when you're really drunk, monged."
The first film in the Lord Of The Rings
trilogy, The Fellowship Of The Ring, will be released in the UK
on December 19.
