Lord of the Boxing Ring, The Hamilton Spectator (Canada), Dec. 10, 2003
Lord of the Rings stars Orlando Bloom and Dominic Monaghan had a fist fight
during the making of the films. The actors got into a fight on a night out in New Zealand after Bloom annoyed
Monaghan. Monaghan, who plays hobbit Merry in the epic trilogy, confessed: "Orlando and
I got into a real fight. My triceps were really painful from working out, and
one night he came up behind me and pinched my arm. I said, 'Don't do that!'
and he did it again and that was it - I kicked him across the dance floor and
we started having a rumble! But me made up."
