If you know him very well, you may find it difficult to identify him in his new role in “The Toxic Avenger” remake. We will go more into that, but do you know who Elijah Wood’s wife is? Is the actor still married to the Danish film producer Mette-Marie Kongsved?
We will get to know more as this article goes on, including details about his latest looks, which will make people struggle to identify him. We will also highlight his career trajectory, who he is, and other details that you need to know about him.
What Happened To Elijah Wood?
Elijah Wood is portraying a different side of himself in his most recent role. The Toxic Avenger, a 1984 superhero cult hit, will be remade by Macon Blair, and the 42-year-old actor plays Fritz Garbinger in it. In the photograph of Wood, he is depicted with blackened teeth, dark eye makeup, and remnants of hair around a mostly bald skull.
According to Blair, Danny DeVito’s Penguin from 1992’s Batman Returns and Riff Raff from The Rocky Horror Picture Show “mixed together” served as some of the inspiration for Wood’s appearance.
“The look came about by discussions I had with our designers and with Elijah himself,” the director added. “I wanted it to feel like a Peter Sellers type of performance where he just goes invisible. The idea is that you forget that it’s the Elijah that you know from Lord of the Rings or anything else.”
Elijah Wood Wife: Is He Married To Mette-Marie Kongsved?
Mette-Marie Kongsved is Elijah Wood’s wife, and they are still very much together after their 2018 marriage. They have two children together, a son (b. 2019) and a daughter (b. 2022). The couple first got involved while working on the 2017 movie I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore, but they didn’t go public with their relationship until they attended the Rodarte fashion show in February 2019. Film producer Kongsved was previously married to director Evan Louis Katz, but the couple divorced in 2016.
So, Mette-Marie Kongsved is still Elijah Wood’s wife, and they have two beautiful children together.
Wood’s parents, Debbie and Warren Wood, who ran a delicatessen together, welcomed her into the world on January 28, 1981, in Cedar Rapids, Iowa. She was the second of their three children. He was brought up as a Catholic and has English, Danish, Irish, and German ancestry. Zachariah, his older brother, and Hannah, his younger sister, are his siblings. He started modeling and learning the piano in his hometown when he was seven years old.
He performed in The Sound of Music and The Wonderful Wizard of Oz throughout his elementary school years. Additionally, he performed in a production of See How They Run as a choirboy. In order for Wood to pursue an acting career, his parents sold their delicatessen in 1989, and the family relocated to Los Angeles without his father. He was fifteen when his parents split up.
With both of them being in the entertainment industry, Elijah Wood’s wife must be proud of him for his exploits, and vice versa. With a small role in Back to the Future Part II (1989), Wood made his film debut. With performances in Avalon (1990), Paradise (1991), Radio Flyer (1992), Forever Young (1992), The Adventures of Huck Finn (1993), and The Good Son (1993), he went on to become a well-known child actor. He acted in movies including North (1994), The War (1994), Flipper (1996), The Ice Storm (1997), Deep Impact (1998), and The Faculty (1998) while still a teen.
