Elijah Wood reveals food limit

Elijah Wood is sure he would never eat animal testicles.

The actor often travels as part of his job, allowing him to try all kinds of interesting food.

Whereas he is keen to have new culinary experiences, there is one dish he draws the line at.

"I am a very adventurous eater and I will pretty much try anything - and most of the time like everything that I try - but there is one thing I can never imagine liking: animal testicles," he laughed to Empire magazine.

"There's something in the US called Rocky Mountain Oysters, which are testicles essentially. I am not going to eat those."

The actor is well known for playing Frodo Baggins in the popular Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit franchises.

Despite being the star of many films, it is normally his iconic Middle Earth character that gets him recognised.

"Yes [people quote my lines back at me]! I would say it's strictly Lord of the Rings, though," he explained.

"Those films got embraced by pop culture in a massive way, so the whole trilogy really lends itself to on-the-street quoting more than anything else I've done - or ever will do, probably. Part of that's also the book, as well. 'I will take the ring, but I do not know the way!' is a pretty popular one. Then again, most of the time people just call me, 'FRODO!'"
