Hmm, this never really occurred to me actually. Nice question. I believe the girl who played Arwen was wearing blue contact lenses too. Maybe because a lot of the references were based off of Norse mythology, and generally blue eyes fit in with that?
Because people with blue eyes (eg. ME!) are awesome. And do they really? Like in the movies or the books? I dont recall it being specifically mentioned in the books
The Tolkien's description of elves were "grey or blue-eyed"...so, naturally, they would have light coloured eyes to fit that.
Oh, I thought someone said she was wearing blue contact lenses once. I don't really know who she is outside of the movie XD
blue eye people are cute... thats why i bought blue contacts to wear at time when i'm with the ladies..
Liv Tyler? She has blue eyes naturally... that's pretty cool though. I never noticed that!
I second the Norse mythology reasoning. With the elves.
