Liv Tyler’s just one of the guys in Lord of the Rings.

Liv Tyler has the role of a lifetime in the Lord of the Rings trilogy. She plays Arwen, the elvish princess who’s in love with Aragorn, a human. As one of the few female characters, Liv had a ball making the flick with her cute co-stars, Elijah Wood, Sean Astin, Billy Boyd, Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom, Sean Bean and Viggo Mortensen.

The epic fantasy was a big switch from Tyler’s previous movies — Empire Records, Stealing Beauty, That Thing You Do!, Inventing the Abbotts, Armageddon and One Night at McCool’s, among others. But Liv totally held her own and delivered a stellar performance.

On the boys club: “I brought my girlfriend with me, to be my assistant. So, I spent a lot of time hanging out with her at home when I couldn’t take the boys anymore!”

On being an elf: “They were the first creatures placed in Middle Earth, by the gods, so they’re very powerful and very knowledgeable.”
