Actor Elijah Wood has a shocking secret - he still hasn't read THE LORD OF THE RINGS.

While his castmates all studied the JRR TOLKIEN masterpiece carefully, the actor, who plays FRODO BAGGINS in the movie trilogy, never got round to reading the great book.

He says, "I started reading them once I got to New Zealand and then, once we started filming, the movie took control and it seemed sort of redundant after a while."
