Unless I'm mistaken, there's a striking image of Liv Tyler (in blue contacts? I don't know what color her eyes are) in a Bvlgari ad on the back page of today's New York Times Magazine.
I'm attaching an image of the ad; am I imagining things, or is this our gal Arwen?

Found this in the Doors section of the British Sunday Times.
"With 58 weeks until the release of the first Lord of the Rings movie, it already has hundreds of devoted websites. Annoyingly, the official site takes over your browser, demanding that you download the movie's trailer before entering. Which would be fine, were the trailer not such a large file. The site is beautifully designed, although the pictures of the Shire set rather worryingly resemble the Teletubbies' house. Sadly, there is little information or insight here - keep your fingers crossed this is not how the film will be."

Another snippet from the same mag gave a quote out of the Variety interview which I don't remember reading there: The reporter asked him why he continued to work only in NZ and Jackson replied, "Why leave the Shire to go and live in Mordor?"
Lastly there's a few bits of DVD news: Old buddy and co-director Costa Botes who made the mockumentary 'Forgotten Silver' with Jackson is preparing a special US edition of it that will include a 'making-of' segment and an interview with PJ. Meanwhile several distributors want to release 'Forgotten Silver' on DVD format, and PJ's first feature 'Bad Taste' will soon be re-released as a DVD and shown on the Sci-Fi Channel in the US. 'Bad Taste' has earned over a million dollars (NZ) and returned 350% on its original budget.

Sean Bean (Boromir) made a brief appearence on ITV's "Celebraty Auction" programme, which auctions celebrity artifacts for charity. Bean offered a holiday where you tour the pacific islands with him! Imagine all the LOTR questions you could ask him! [More]
From: Nona@the compleat Sean Bean
Sean did not auction off a personally guided tour of a South Pacific island.
He was a celebrity presenter at the televised celebrity charity auction. He INTRODUCED and PRESENTED one of the lots to be auctioned off - which was a trip to the Maldives. That was the extent of his involvement - he had nothing to do with the actual holiday....

This one page article appeared in the new December 2000 issue of Total Film magazine here in the UK. It purports to show exclusive pictures although I feel sure that I've seen the bottom one before. The large picture at the top I presume to be an encounter with the ringwraiths near the Buckleberry Ferry??
