Personal Quote:

The last thing I want to see at the movies is a version of my reality. I don't want to see art imitating life.

Trivia:

In The Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring (2001), the portraits on the wall over the fireplace at Bag End, representing Bilbo's parents, are actually portraits of Frances and Peter Jackson (without the beard). See more »
