Elijah Wood for Mr. Porter

Posted on February 05, 2013

Gotta say, Frodo sure has learned how to rock a suit in his older age.

These pics are adorable. And they make a nice change from the standard “brooding in a diner/on a motorcycle/in the desert” guyditorial. Nothing here is hard to wear, of course, but it’s all well chosen and looks good on him. Suit porn.

      Ha! The goldfish! Perfect.

      • Kristin McNamara

        That’s my favorite too! Looks like me in… all my meetings.

      • Airkisses

         Made me laugh! Guyditorials don’t normally get to have such a sense of humor.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1594250515 Kim Brightman

      Yep, he looks good!  I still remember him as the evil son of a judge on an episode of “Homicide.”

      Love this. All of this. 

    • homofascist

      In my book Mr. Porter is pretty much as if not more enjoyable than porn…

    • MaryanneGirl

      If he was 6 inches taller, I’d climb him like a tree and hang on. 

      • http://www.facebook.com/theAccidentalHousewife Leah Elzinga

         I’d let him climb ME like a tree and hold on.

      • MK03

        He’s perfect for me. We’re both fun-size!

        • MaryanneGirl

          Jealous! I’m 6’0! I have all kinds of trouble finding a tall lad. Although I may have to agree with Leah & just settle for him climbing me. :)

          • MK03

            I wish I had a few more inches on me. Being petite isn’t all that great. Every article of clothing I buy has to have at least 6 inches chopped off the hem. And I have the opposite problem with guys: I have to stand en pointe to kiss them. Really does a number on your neck after a while…

            • MaryanneGirl

              Haha, and being tall has the exact opposite problem…pants are high waters, and shirts tend to fall above my wrists, etc. And every guy I’ve ever dated has been just shorter than me or wayyyy shorter than me.  Nothing makes you feel more unsexy than bending down to kiss your 5’7″ boyfriend…

            • MK03

              Tell ya what, I’ll take 5 inches off your hands. Then we’ll both be 5’7″. Everyone wins!

        • JasmineAM

          This is why I love being 5’3. Every guy I’ve dated has been several inches taller than me. 

    • Kathy_Marlow

      Nothing wrong with some suit porn…there should be more of it..the high quality kind, not the bootleg

      • Pinup Ghoul

        …the kind with suspenders! I think the sexiest thing a man can wear is a pair of well-tailored slacks, a white undershirt, and suspenders. SO HOT. I DIE.

        • Kathy_Marlow

          I could not agree more

    • mjude

      he is just so damn cute.  photos are great.

    • MissMariRose

      Suit porn. I need more of it in my life.

      As the three Texas wise men once said, “Every girl’s crazy ’bout a sharp dressed man.”

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_2P2ANLRZ6YAVGONA36I2AQJYGI VicD

      He is looking decidedly less Hobbit-like and much more “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.”

      • lovelyivy

         If only he could sing he’d be a fantastic Finch!

    • RebeccaKW

      Love the one with the paper airplane.

    • Super_Red

      I’m a little bit in love with that last picture. 

    • tereliz

      Love the shot with the goldfish. That’s how I look at my desk All. The. Time. But Elijah, is that a cigarette?! Naughty, naughty!

      • Kate4queen

        I have Bobby the Betta fish on my desk too!

    • http://twitter.com/PhDKnitter marlie

      He’s totally adorable. That is all. 

    • miagain

      I grow weak in the knees when a fella wears a blue and white striped shirt….

    • tallgirl1204

      He is going to get better looking with age.  Dang him! 

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Maya-KC/537771651 Maya KC

      Don’t be silly, Elijah Wood hasn’t aged!

      • tereliz

        Watched the LOTR Trilogy last month after watching Wilfred for a few seasons. He has aged, but aged well. (He and Joseph Gordon Levitt give me hope for the future of Hollywood)

        They photoshopped his cheeks into a baby’s ass for his scenes in the Hobbit. ;)

        • tallgirl1204

          That (the photoshopping) for LOTR is good to know.  I thought he was so weird looking.  Not my idea of Frodo at all. 

          • Toto Maya

            I was so disappointed with Frodo in LOTR. Favorite character in the books, and pathetic moron in the movies. Not Elijah Wood’s fault, they just really dumbed down the part. Still makes me sad. Elijah Wood is super adorable though.

      • adnama79

        Since North and The Good Son? 

    • Rand Ortega

      That boy sure can hang a suit. I usually don’t have an affinity for the diminutive, but between him & Daniel Radcliffe, I’d definitely make an exception.

      • tereliz

        Yeah, Elijah’s a bit too wee for me to find him sexy, but this editorial makes him look pretty good. If it weren’t for the ciggy in the couch pic… (Quit smoking 8 years ago and realize I only started because it was cool and kept doing it because I was addicted. Call me bitter. Plus, everyone who smokes outside still comes inside reeking of smoke. Gross.)

    • Drew Macaulay

      Wow…a guyditorial without any blue steel!  I love his facial expressions as much as the clothes, which pretty much never happens.  What a great acting face.  

    • Pants_are_a_must

      But why not feature the Ben Whishaw editorial? That man was made for the sensitive suit types Mr. Porter likes pushing for.

      That said, Elijah Woods and his Big, Blue Eyes look very dapper here.

    • http://www.facebook.com/renate.yerkes Renate Yerkes

       He is a delightful mini-man!

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=149100065 Virginia McMurdo

      This is the best he has ever looked! Well done!

    • SapphoPoet

      Love the goldfish bowl and the paper airplane. 

    • Trisha26

      Per the goldfish & orange seat photos – can he be on Mad Men? Now? Love him.

    • MK03

      Looking at these pics, I realize that my high-school crush on him hasn’t gone away at all…

    • MilaXX

      I like it because we got more than one facial expression. Well done, Frodo.

    • Vlasta Bubinka

      Love the filled with ennui and so is the fish pic!

    • Sally Brownson

      I love the one with the goldfish and the one with the paper airplane. Both really adorable.

    • http://gabyrippling.tumblr.com/ Gabriella M

      I like the contrast stripe on that first shirt. I can haz for the boyf please? 

      • eowyn_of_rohan

        I can haz man in the shirt AS my boyf please?

      • out for a walk

        At first glance I thought that contrast stripe was a sheer stripe, and was super weirded out.
        So that picture bothers me, but I bet it looks good in person where it’s obviously not sheer.

    • formerlyAnon

      Well done all around.

      I understand, ’cause it’s about 10 bajillion degrees here 6-8 months of the year. And a nice suit isn’t
      cheap. But still, I wish I saw more nice suits on guys. If only they knew how good they can look in one.

    • http://twitter.com/aidanboleyn Aidan B

      GAH I just love him. Love him in a suit even more!!!

    • jonnyf8

      Finally!  This is the man I always knew he would grow up to be.  Goodbye Frodo!!! 

    • crash1212

      Suit porn. hee hee

    • stubbornthoughts

      Great editorial. And Elijah seems like a fun guy to be around. Damn you, Samwise Gamgee.

    • unbornfawn

      Nice job. Good work Elijah.

    • Annabelle Archer

      Good clothes, good story telling, good looking fella – good times.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Emily-Smith/12431153 Emily Smith

      he did start out as a child actor and model.  he has some modeling chops.  also i love him and i’m pretty sure the sun shines out of his ass, if that says anything about my opinion.

    • margaret meyers

      He’s a good fashion model and wears clothes well.  I bet this was an easy shoot.

    • butterflysunita

      I love this editorial!  More editorials like this, please–nothing wrong with a sense of humor.  

    • AuntieAnonny

      Whoever though of that fishbowl placement is a GOD.

    • j_anson

      I swear they’re using makeup to downplay his eyes. Which I totally approve of. When his eyes get too big all I can see is tortured hobbit.

    • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

      He is aging very, very well. Nice shoot.

    • prettybigkitty

      Adorbs.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=1355527007 Rain Jezek

      Elijah Wood + porn of any type = I will take it.

    • http://twitter.com/dianasof Diana

      after all these years, i finally get why one of my high school friends had a huge crush on him. 

    • Frank Lithium

      Suit porn. Mmm… I like that.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Sarah-Adams/1143985903 Sarah Adams

      He’s so adorable when he smiles. And I realize he probably wants to get as far away from Frodo hair as possible, but he looks really good with slightly tousled curls. 

    • Kirsten Kirsten

      Gorgeous! But why so sad?

    • Melvis Velour

      I’d have a hell of a time interviewing him for a job…the only position I could think of would be horizontal…

    • TRSTL

      Best I have ever seen him look!  Not even a passing resemblence to the horrid little elf/goblin/hobbit whatever thing he played in those dreadful movies.

    • drae27

      For all of those crushing on him, check out his 7 Minutes in Heaven with Mike O’brien
      http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MvJHP-g7Cfc
      He likes soft bellies

      Cheer up, emo kid. Sheeeesh. 

    • mmc2315

      Yummy!

    • Le_Sigh

      D’aw – adorable!  I’d totally break my height requirement rule for him.

    • Adrienne Melton

      Suit porn. {fanning myself}

    • siriuslover

      I love these shots, especially the one of him on the couch and looking out the window.

    • ashtangajunkie

      I love these, especially the shot with the fishbowl. Suit porn indeed.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Julie-Chase/731391326 Julie Chase

      Fishbowl picture makes me happy. He’s so charming.

    • http://twitter.com/lisledanielle Danielle Lisle

      I just want to muss his hair in the front. Everything else is doin’ it for me.

    • OrigamiRose

      He is just adorb.  I want to twist him like a pretzel.

      /uhhh did I say that out loud?

    • BrightsideSusan

      He needs a shave.

    • http://twitter.com/dixielou8 Ashley

      Suit porn… *drools*

    • SassieCassy

      he is adorable

    • lobsterlen

      Frodo is a very good model. I never thought I’d say that.

    • http://www.twitter.com/allforusophia AllForUSophia

      I love everything about this photoshoot!! Elijah is amazing, really love the guy and the clothes look great on him! Bravo!

    • http://twitter.com/TMamBo Therese Bohn

      I”m digging the Pete Campbell blue suit in the 4th picture! Love the fish pic too. 

    • chitowndg

      I am so getting a goldfish for my office.

    • sarahmichelef

      Mopey Frodo is Mopey. I love it.

    • jorinde

      suit porn indeed. I’m about to have wet dreams of Frodo. Never thought I would.

    • guest2visits

      Nice looks. And much better than the too serious hipster-skinny pants, etc.  He looks good in a suit.
