Elijah Wood Speaks Out About Jared Leto Attack

Becoming-stranger-by-the-minute Jared Leto grabbed Elijah Woods last year by the throat, calling him a “f** a**hole,” all because Woods wasn’t a fan of Leto’s band, 30 Seconds To Mars. And Woods is finally talking openly about the odd incident, according to Starpulse News Blog:

Wood tells Jane magazine, “He was basically upset at the fact that I said I didn’t like his band. He said that initially and walked away. I guess he thought I was laughing at him, but I was more shell-shocked and telling people around me, ‘Whoa, I just got told off by Jared Leto for not liking his band.’ And that’s when he came back and grabbed me.”

He adds, “I told Jared it wasn’t personal. He acted like I’d been disrespecting him or speaking about his family. Things like that don’t usually happen to me. I’m very non-confrontational. The whole thing was kind of ridiculous.”

I wish I could have been present to witness Bilbo Baggins Frodo being attacked by Jordan Catalano. It would have been such a glorious colliding of two equally wonderful nerdy worlds.
