Peter Jackson’s Naughty Dwarf Calendar

Last year, when Peter Jackson was 50, I recall hearing that The Hobbit dwarves had given him a rather unique Dwarven Calendar as a birthday gift.

And that was that.  No other details were given…until now.

The Insider is reporting that this wasn’t just any dwarven calendar, but a rather naughty one!

Aidan Turner (Kili)  let the cat out of the bag at the Wellington premiere. Deflecting a comment about being a “hot dwarf” Aidan said,

“We did a Dwarf calendar – we gave it to Peter on his birthday and we posed as naked Dwarves with our fat suits on! Nobody knows that. Where can you get one? You can’t. There was one made for Peter Jackson and that’s it — I hope that’s it. Imagine if it came out. I’d be so embarrassed!”

“Just imagine fat suit, high heels, blonde wig, Marilyn Monroe,” confirmed Mark Hadlow, who plays Dori.

John Callen (Oin) gave more away,

With just our faces and various parts of our anatomy covered by large pieces of fruit. … I wanted to be November, but I was October. “

It was the brain-child of Graham McTavish, who plays Dwalin,

“It was for Peter’s 50th birthday, I came up with the idea that there should be like a Sports Illustrated [swimsuit issue] – it was Dwarves Illustrated 2012 — and so we were in our fat suits and muscle suits. We had to keep it super-secret so people wouldn’t know about it.”

“Very, very sexy,” says Stephen Hunter, who plays Bombur. “Really, it’s Middle-earth’s Victoria’s Secret calendar. I was January. I mean, after that it went downhill…”

“Listen, there are images in there that you don’t want to see,” jokes McTavish. “Think Sound of Music in a bra. It’s hilarious. It’s lovely.”
