Tyler: ‘SO Not Like Xena!’

From: non serviam

Liv Tyler (Arwen) is on the cover of the November issue of W Magazine, the fashion Mag. In a surprisingly insightful article, she discusses Tolkien and PJ’s films at length. The interview includes the following reassuring-to-purists statement about how Arwen (or as dubious fans have dubbed her, XenArwen) will be portrayed in the films:

“Let’s get this straight,” says Tyler…”Arwen is SO not like Xena in any way. She’s a totally kick-ass, tough chick, but she doesn’t fight. Those are all just rumors. Peter Jackson asked me to do this, and he’s an incredible lover of Tolkien. I had to trust that, and so should the fans. If you don’t want to see what another person does with the part, then don’t go to the movies.”

Meeeeow…
