Wellington, Day Six Viggo Mortenson and River Anduin

20 10 2007

Before you get all excited, no, we didn’t actually meet Viggo Mortenson (who will hereafter be referred to as VM). He was, however, our first topic of conversation.

Apparently VM stayed in one hotel for the entire 18 months that he was in NZ. He didn’t want a flat because then he would have had too much room. -The woman who cleaned his room rode the tour once and Jack pumped her for information.- He was very tidy and often he woudl have cleaned his room before the amids even got there. Not that it was much of a room to clean. he had asked for the smallest room in the place and it was little more than a glorified broom cupboard. He tipped well if the maids did a good job and he almost never had people over. I’ve heard him say that he wanted to ‘feel like a ranger’ and a ranger would NOT throw wild parties. Makes it hard to range with all those people asking for more gerkins.

We also discussed Liv Tyler who “you never hear anything but lovely things” about. What an incredible legacy! Read the rest of this entry »
