London: `The Lord of the Rings` film trilogy did little to boost actor Billy Boyd`s bank balance as he is completely broke.

The Scottish star played Hobbit Peregrin `Pippin` Took in the hit movies, which generated a massive $2.7 billion in profits, but Boyd admits he is still a struggling actor, reports imdb.com.

"I don`t have any money. We were unknown actors. We did it for peanuts (very little money), and for food," he said.
