* ActorAllusion: In both ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' and ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' she plays the daughter of a high ranking man and dates someone he disapproves of.
* CreatorBacklash: At one point in development, Arwen was going to get some {{Xenafication}} to show up at Helm's Deep and fight in the battle. This was a leftover element from when the books were going to be just two movies - and Arwen and Eowyn would be combined. Liv hated the idea, constantly stressing that Arwen didn't need to fight in battle to be a strong character. When the idea was scrapped, she was very pleased.
* DeletedRole: She had a small role in ''Everyone Says I Love You'' that ended up cut. Woody Allen was so impressed by her performance that he wrote her a letter personally to apologise.

In both ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' and ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'' she plays the daughter of a high ranking man and dates someone he disapproves of.
** In both ''{{Film/Armageddon}}'' and ''Film/EmpireRecords'' her love interest is called AJ.
** In ''Film/JerseyGirl'' she plays a woman who works at a video store. One of the movies that can be seen is ''Stealing Beauty'' - Liv's breakout role.
* CreatorBacklash: ActorInspiredElement:[[invoked]] For the dream conversation between Aragorn and Arwen, their dialogue was originally written entirely in English. Liv had become a huge fan of the Elvish language, and asked them to have them speak some of the lines in Elvish instead. Peter Jackson later said the change was absolutely for the better.
* AwesomeDearBoy:[[invoked]] She took her role in ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' before even reading the script.
* CastingGag:[[invoked]] In ''Film/TheIncredibleHulk'' she plays Betty Ross, following on from Creator/JenniferConnelly, who played her in ''{{Film/Hulk}}''. They had played sisters in ''Inventing The Abbotts''.

* DoingItForTheArt:[[invoked]]She studied intensely on Middle Earth lore and learned Elvish for her role in ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings''. On the 'making of' features, she joked that she wished all her dialogue could be in Elvish.
* DyeingForYourArt:[[invoked]] Normally a brunette, she dyed her hair red for ''Film/OneNightAtMcCools''.



* FakeBrit: She puts on an English accent for Arwen. Apparently her own father thought she had been dubbed. Earlier she had also put one on to play a Russian character in ''Onegin'', and to play an ''actual'' Brit in ''Film/PlunkettAndMacleane'' and ''Gunpowder''.

* HilariousOuttakes: While filming the "come and claim him" bit from ''Film/TheLordOfTheRings'', she accidentally stabbed herself in the thigh. This was featured in many outtakes and bloopers.



* PlayingAgainstType: In ''Series/TheLeftovers'', it doesn't seem like this at first, [[spoiler: but by season two she's playing The BigBad]].
* StarMakingRole: Despite the mixed reception to ''Stealing Beauty'', Liv received unanimous praise and enjoyed a higher profile afterwards.

Added DiffLines:

** Uma Thurman was the first choice for Arwen, but had to decline due to her pregnancy at the time. Liv was apparently one of the last actresses cast.


Added DiffLines:

** A spin-off of ''Film/OneNightAtMcCools'' was considered - revolving around Jewel Valentine - but never happened due to the death of screenwriter Stan Seidel.

* HasTwoDaddies: In a way; after the truth of who her real father was came out, she developed a close relationship with Steven Tyler and later legally changed her surname to his surname, but she also remains close to her adoptive/legal father Todd Rundgren and kept his surname as her middle name.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** She recorded a song to be used in ''The Two Towers'' but it was cut for not fitting with the tone. It's included on the extended edition of ''Return of the King''.
** She presumably would have had a bigger role in the Franchise/MarvelCinematicUniverse but the casting change of Edward Norton to Mark Ruffalo - and Bruce's subsequent romance with Black Widow has resulted in Liv's Betty Ross not appearing past the one film.

* {{Fanservice}}: The Aerosmith video she starred in and the thin nightshirt scene in ''The Lord of the Rings'' spring to mind. And then, of course, there's ''Stealing Beauty''.
