Sean Astin: Hidden Treasure

After starring in the classic children's adventure movie The Goonies (1985), Sean Astin was allowed to keep a number of props, including the film's iconic treasure map. Where is it now? No one knows; it was thrown in the garbage when his mother moved!

[Years later Aston warned Elijah Wood, keeper of the map of Middle-Earth brandished by Gandalf in Fellowship of the Ring, to be very careful with it.]

[For his role (as Samwise 'Sam' Gamgee) in the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Astin gained nearly 40 pounds. "I'm not really Sam," Astin said later. "Nobody could be that good, that noble. I'm a lot more Hollywood than Sam would ever be."]
