”But I suppose by the first time I’d seen myself in the monitor, I was used to it. I’d had so many fittings, and I’d had so many pictures taken, and so many versions of the costume, and versions of the wig. But yeah, it felt kind of odd. I look fairly different as Bilbo, but what’s weird now, is it just doesn’t feel strange at all. And I genuinely forget - we all forget what we look like.

”When I first saw the dwarfs, I couldn’t believe it. I didn’t recognise anyone when they were in full prosthetic, until they had opened their mouths. I was like, ”God, that’s [Wellington actor] Jed [Brophy],” or ‘that’s Jimmy Nesbitt’, you know. But now we don’t think about it at all.

”[We] were going from Stone Street [Studio’s in Wellington’s Miramar] up to the set at Mt Crawford, [to] the set of Dale, in a car. [I was] just kind of wondering why people were doing that to me. And I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m dressed as Bilbo Baggins’.

”So we’re driving around as dwarfs or Bilbo. And yeah, this would really be a weird thing to see in Miramar’s high street, or whatever.

Kind of odd.

”’Why’s that bloke dressed like that? Oh, it’s Martin Freeman.”’

Martin Freeman in an interview with Stuff about being The Hobbit in The Hobbit.

I loved this gem:

Freeman likes fashion and has garnered the nickname ”the mobbit” on the set for his love of British Mod culture. So even though he’s in his own clothes, they seem cut in a way not unlike Bilbo, right down to a waist coat.
