Hollywood’s Hidden Secrets

Elijah Wood has been in Hollywood for a long time.

From his younger years a child star to his eventual international stardom thanks to The Lord of the Rings trilogy, Elijah Wood has experienced the highs and lows of stardom, though he has certainly turned out much luckier than other former child stars.

Following a recent interview with the Sunday Times, Wood is making international headlines for touching on a subject that Hollywood is apt to sweep under the red carpet: sexual scandal and abuse in the form of pedophilia.

“This bizarre industry presents so many paths of temptation,” Wood warned. “If you don’t have some kind of foundation, typically from family, then it will be difficult to deal with.”
