Today, MrPorter.com celebrated their 100th issue, with Elijah Wood fronting a fun new campaign for the website.

In the photo spread, the actor models styles by Alexander McQueen, Dolce & Gabbana, Burberry London and many more!

Elijah also dished to the site about his personal sense of style, his soft spot for preserving L.A.'s city history and of course, his recent movie, Maniac.

On How Fashion Fits In to His Life: "Yeah, I suppose fashion is a part of my life. Not in any kind of major way. I think everybody has a costume - I'm pretty simple. I just like things that are relatively classic and timeless."

On Shopping: "For me, fit has everything to do with it. In Japan, every single thing I put on would fit, which just does not happen in the U.S. I kind of went a little crazy. It's nice to go into a store, see something I like and go, 'That will fit'. It was awesome. Japan's a great place to shop."

On Saving L.A.'s Historical Sites: Elijah is serious about this one! The Lord of the Rings star recently campaigned to save a 51-year-old taco stand from the wrecking ball! He says, "We have so little history as it is in Los Angeles and I think it's really important that we preserve it." However, the actor does display a strong sense of optimism about his endeavor, "I feel as if the tide is changing. I feel as if people are more aware of our history, and what little of it we have left."

On His Role in Maniac: "I'm not a huge fan of remakes, especially horror film remakes. But I was intrigued by this. What resulted was far more stylistic and beautiful than I had anticipated," he dished. " It was initially pitched to me as: you'll play the killer, and you'll only be seen in reflections. So interesting. And each sequence effectively is a single shot, so every scene became this puzzle of trying to figure out how I was involved, where the camera moved. It was like a dance."

The campaign also features a mini-movie, where Elijah plays a disgruntled employee who decides he's going to go out in style—literally!
