Elijah Wood, Actor By Day, Food Blogga By Night. Snappin' Pix @ Chego!
Elijah Wood, actor & food pornographer.
As if there wasn't enough competition in the LA food blogger scene, now even Elijah Wood can't help but pop off a few shots of his grub before mowin' down his chow.
His food porn subject ― Chego!'s One Chubby Pork Belly bowl. (Definitely some chubby fetish happening.)
I "accidentally" took this shot of Elijah Wood and his dining companion taking photos of their food when I was snapping a wider shot of the Chego! dining room. Ooopsy, there they are.
Elijah took quite a few photos of his rice bowl which leads me to think that he isn't casual at all about his new venture. The steely determination evident on his face to get a steady, naturally lit, ECU shot sans flash was not to be messed with.
I thought it was pretty cool that he didn't have any hang-ups about being a big star taking a few pix of his food before polishing off his bowl. He's just like us except he could buy a lot more bowls of One Chubby Pork Belly than I ever could...oh, yeah, and he can act really good too.
It's a topsy-turvy world! Would you try your hand as food blogger if you were a young A-list celeb? Elijah would.
