Quote:Elijah Wood's long career in Hollywood, beginning when he was just 8, taught him that there "are a lot of vipers" in the industry, he told the [i]Sunday Times[/i] in a new interview.
Wood compared unnamed child abuse allegations in America to the Jimmy Savile abuse scandalthat rocked the United Kingdom after the longtime entertainer faced hundreds of sexual abuse allegations following his death (and thus his loss of protection from scrutiny).
"You all grew up with Savile – Jesus, it must have been devastating," Wood, 35, said. "Clearly something major was going on in Hollywood. It was all organized. There are a lot of vipers in this industry, people who only have their own interests in mind.
"There is darkness in the underbelly – if you can imagine it, it's probably happened."
"If we knew our power, we wouldn't get arrogant when we got two pennies
If we knew our power, we would see what everybody sees, that we're rich already!"
