Elijah Wood Reveals Vintage Child Modeling Pictures On 'Conan' (VIDEO)

Posted: Updated:

Before he was Frodo, Elijah Wood was a child model. The "Lord of the Rings" and "Wilfred" star discussed his child model past on "Conan."

There weren't a lot of acting roles for a young boy in Iowa, so Wood's mother signed him up for some modeling gigs.

“Like, I did some print work and then I did, like, I walked a catwalk at, like, a mall," Wood told Conan O'Brien. “I think I was, like, 6? Or 5 or 6?”

O'Brien then showed one of Wood's vintage catwalk photos. "What is imprinted into my mind, at that age, to do that?” Wood asked, mimicking his pose.

"Conan" airs weeknights, 11 p.m. ET on TBS.
