British actor Martin Freeman had to shave his legs for his lead role in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey to avoid the agony of spending hours wearing prosthetic feet onset.

The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy star portrays hobbit protagonist Bilbo Baggins in the first instalment of Peter Jackson's new trilogy, the prequel to The Lord of the Rings franchise, and he quickly picked up a whole new skincare routine to survive shooting in his character's gnarly feet.

"The foot prosthetic comes halfway up your thigh, sort of like stockings," he tells People magazine.

"If you've got hairy legs, then it's agony. So you shave and powder your legs first."
