Liv Tyler Speaks
Tyler, admittedly, is maybe a bit giddy lately over her relationship, partly because The Lord of the Rings has kept her away from home so much. "I think I felt more homesick than anybody else, just by nature of how my character is," she sighs. "The rest of the actors are all kind of together on this journey and my character is not." Tyler plays Arwen, the paramour of Aragorn (played by Viggo Mortensen) in the epic story. The rest of the cast includes Elijah Wood, Cate Blanchett, and Ian McKellen. "I had no idea what I was taking on," Tyler continues. "I thought, Oh I can handle it, it's only a year out of my life. Then again, the thought of being employed for a year was really nice."
