Tobey Maguire hosted a lengthy AMA a week ago on Reddit to promote the Babylon movie’s release. Regarding everything from his time as Spider-Man to his most famous (fake) film, Tropic Thunder, Satan’s Alley, Maguire responded to fan inquiries.
In the early 2000s, Tobey Maguire and Elijah Wood were two of the world’s most recognizable and famous actors. The first face of Spider-Man in the Trilogy is signed by Sam Raimi, while the second of Frodo is in the saga of The Lord of the Rings. In addition, the two also share several somatic points, which in that period often confused some distracted fans who confused one with the other. Indeed, sometimes, they even went to ask for an autograph from one, thinking that it was the other instead.
Maguire related a time when he was confused for Elijah Wood, who played Frodo in The Lord of the Rings. In response to the fan’s intense excitement, he signed a signature for her. He said, “No joke, I once signed an autograph as Elijah Wood because the fan was so excited. I didn’t want to disappoint her by telling her I wasn’t Elijah.”
Maguire also confirmed that he is aware of all the memes related to his Spider-Man trilogy, especially the Bully Maguire ones. “Fairly neutral. I did see the Bully Maguire videos, which was a funny discovery.” As told on Reddit by Maguire, he once signed with the name of the soul.
