The Beautiful Arwen (AKA Liv Tyler)
Lets admit it. Almost every female fan of LotR wishes they had at least one trait that Arwen did. Whether it be her beauty, quiet spirit, gentleness, wish to stay at home and get married. It could be the undying love that she has for the mortal man, Aragorn:
Or perhaps its just because she is an elf and is fortunate enough to live in the amazing village of Rivendell:
I've always liked her better than Eowyn, but I still do love Eowyns part in the story. Arwen is a lot of things I wish I was, at least as far as outward beauty goes. I also wish that I could have the undying love for my future loved one. Who knows, Maybe I will. :)
She could also handle a blade, I wish they showed more of that in the movie. :(
But lets face it. Arwen was actually Liv Tyler, who had makeup, fake ears, and cameras on her a lot.
Arwens not real.
Excuse me well I dry my eyes and blow my my nose. ;/ She's just someone who pretended to be all that Arwen was. Liv Tyler did a great job. She really did. I give her a huge thumbs up.
WAIT! you must be thinking, THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE TALKING ABOUT THE GOOD STUFF OF LOTR!! Calm down. I just wanted to pull you back into reality for a little.
J.R.R Tolkien had written the character of Arwen for a purpose other than that she was a pretty elf that Aragorn is in love with. He wanted Arwen to be an example of what he thought a stay at home woman should be, what he wanted most in a woman. He gave Arwen faults as well, which is something I really like...I hate it when characters are perfect. I love Arwen despite the fact that she does not exist. I just don't want to go head over heels. ;)
I'm still envious of her elegant beauty.Oh well.
So, whats your opnion of her? Let me know. I'm curious.
