Wood met the actors in 1999 when they began filming their trilogy of big-budget movies in New Zealand. And while they all declare themselves to be the best of friends now, Monaghan explains that Wood was a little apprehensive at first.
He says, "In America, it's about making people feel good. You know, it's like, 'Hey, good job man, good job.' Whereas in England, it's, 'You're a d**k.'
"I think when Elijah and SEAN (ASTIN) fist turned up in New Zealand, they didn't really know what was going on with us, because all Billy and I did as soon as we met each other was just f***ing take the p*** out of each other.
"Elijah used to get a little freaked out. He was like, 'I don't know if these guys like me.'"03/12/2003 08:59
