Ah, the good ol' days!
Taking to Instagram to remember the time he and his "fellowship" members — Ian McKellen, Viggo Mortensen, Elijah Wood, Dominic Monaghan, and Billy Boyd — got tattoos of the Elvish number nine in honor of the film, the 39-year-old posted:
Corey Feldman Opens Up About Pedophilia In Hollywood & Reveals Executives Passed Him & The Late Corey Haim 'Back And Forth'
On Wednesday, Corey Feldman once again opened up about the alleged sexual abuse he and his late friend Corey Haim suffered during their time as child actors in Hollywood. How sad!
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, The Goonies alum dished:
"When somebody approaches you and says, 'Hey, this is a Hollywood party where you get to hang out with the powerful people in Hollywood,' well that sounds like a great opportunity."
In fact, this sit down comes shortly after Elijah Wood discussed "organized" child abuse and pedophilia in the entertainment industry — a story which he has since recanted. However, the 44-year-old believes there was in fact a type of network that allowed executives to prey on child stars.
It turns out Elijah Wood's words were twisted this entire time…
As we reported, the Lord Of The Rings actor gave an interview to The Sunday Times where he spoke out about the "organized" child abuse and pedophilia in the entertainment industry.
In the shocking piece, the 35-year-old gives the impression that he personally knows about such crimes.
On Monday, Wood spoke to The Hollywood Reporter and said his comments were misinterpreted.
Elijah Wood Speaks Out On The Secret 'Organized' Child Abuse In Hollywood — And How He Was Able To Avoid It!
Elijah Wood began his Hollywood career at the age of 8 — and growing up in the industry taught him there "are a lot of vipers" to watch out for.
In an interview with the Sunday Times, the Lord Of The Rings star spoke out on the "organized" child abuse and pedophilia in the entertainment industry.
Wood compared allegations in America to the Jimmy Savile molestation scandal in the U.K. — when the BBC icon faced dozens of sexual abuse allegations following his death.
The actor said:
Another loss for the music industry.
On Tuesday, it was reported that rapper Phife Dawg had tragically passed away. He was 45 years old.
The Can I Kick It artist was best known for being a member of the iconic rap group A Tribe Called Quest. Unfortunately, it's been said that the industry vet had struggled with his health for years as he suffered from type 1 diabetes.
In fact, Phife (whose real name was Malik Isaac Taylor) even had a kidney transplant back in 2008. So sad!
Alongside Q-Tip and DJ/producer Ali Shaheed Muhammad, Phife was a MAJOR pioneer for hip hop. The ATCQ member's presence in the music scene will greatly will be missed.

Madonna, Kanye West, & Cher Lead Tributes To David Bowie Following The Confirmation Of His Passing At 69
This is just so sad.
The music icon's family confirmed the heartbreaking news in a statement on Sunday and we almost still can't believe it. It's hard to imagine that it was just days ago that the Space Oddity singer was celebrating his birthday and dropping his 25th and final studio album Blackstar.
David's loss is most certainly felt worldwide. In fact, we're not the only ones to think that as many of Hollywood's A-listers took to Twitter to pay tribute to the Grammy winner — including Madonna, Kanye West, Ricky Gervais, Cher, and many more.
