Yahoo Movies has unwittingly sent shockwaves through the cast of "The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug." And it was all prompted by something so seemingly harmless: feet.
Since Peter Jackson thinks shoeless-ness is the new black, and being that Bilbo Baggins is also shoe-averse, we thought it'd be fun to quiz Martin Freeman, Benedict Cumberbatch, Evangeline Lilly, and other "Hobbit" stars on the cast's own feet.
You can play along here! (Foot spoilers appear at the bottom of the post.)
Little did we know one star's tootsies would inspire such shock that swear words started flying and mouths flew agape. (See it toward the end of the video above.)
Literally, when we revealed the identity of one "Hobbit" star's feet, Cumberbatch said "Oh my god! F---!" Richard Armitage feared retribution, Freeman couldn't stop laughing, and Luke Evans widened his eyes to the size of saucers in disbelief — which soon turned into deep regret.
Lucky for us, our innocent celebrity victim (who recently took over our Instagram page and who we adore!) was a great sport about the whole accidental foot-shaming incident.
"The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug," big bare feet and all, is now playing.
