Del Toro Briefly Talks about The Hobbit in Los Angeles
While the event focused on his new publication, he did make a couple of Hobbit-referencing comments:
When asked about how the two screenplays are coming, he said (seemingly tongue in cheek), "We're working on it still. I think it will be finished when the DVD comes out."
And regarding his stay in New Zealand, del Toro says he plans to spend three years there: "This is my last trip. I'm going to go three years." He also mentioned that
Kiwi food has affected his waistline: "I grew eight sizes," he said. "This morning I went to Big and Tall because my pants were, like, [too tight]. There's a thing called
Pavlova, which is like a giant meringue with cream on top. I have this [pointing to his jacket] to cover my breastage."
