Garrett Hedlund Covers 'Interview' December/January Issue

Garrett Hedlund takes the cover of Interview Magazine‘s December 2012/January 2013 issue, on newsstands December 11.

Here is what the 28-year-old On the Road actor had to share with the mag in his interview with Tron: Legacy co-star Jeff Bridges:

On his new film: “I’d read it in high school. It’s funny that I got to do On the Road because the thing that had the biggest impact on me growing up was reading books. I was very inspired by the book and this spirit of Dean Moriarty and how envious we all are of somebody who can be that carefree. I also always thought of myself as more like the Sal Paradise character—you know, being a listener and writing about a conversation more than being the one that others listened to. So it was interesting that I got to play Dean.”

On being an avid photographer: “I must have taken more than 1,200 photos while we were making On the Road. I find it harder and harder to take pictures on sets now because the digital cameras they use to make films allow you to shoot in low light, whereas my Widelux just can’t open up enough. But I’m still making those little books and stuff and trying to take as many pictures as I can. I love it.”

On learning to play guitar from Terrence Howard: “When Terrence and I worked together more than seven years ago [on John Singleton's Four Brothers], he showed me what was basically the first thing I ever learned on a guitar. It was a little Spanish number. But by the time we started working on On the Road together, five years later, I’d obviously learned how to play more, so Terrence came to my room with a guitar and played a song, and then I played a song, and then he played a song, and then I played a song—this must have gone back and forth about 12 times. It was nice to have been able to do that.”

    so basically films are just means for actors and actresses to socialize. They’re paid nice and often travel..regardless of whether the film is remotely interesting’s just an excuse to schmooze with their actor pals.

    I wonder how he feels about being the one praised by critics for the role and then completely overshadowed by Kristen Stewart famewhoring for awards in order to shift attention from her nasty personal issues. I feel sorry for him!

    I take it you have no concept of how Hollywood works. The producers of On The Road chose WHO represents the movie at screenings and award shows. They know who will draw the most attention to the movie which is what it needs. It needs exposure. Get over your hate on Kristen. It is boring and unoriginal. She is an actor, doing her job.

    OMG Says:

    This movie was like two hours of my life I will never get back, if I’m honest the Oscar buzz was started by random people, it’s so boring and dull. It’s absolute crap!!! I didn’t even understand why it was a movie!!! They should of just left it!!!

    johns deep is a really actor who can basically play anything in the entire world , were as young Hollywood today think just because they take their clothes of it makes them a ‘serious’ actor. There all dull and lame take themselves super seriously think there gods gifts to the earth. I would rather old Hollywood movies with real actresses and actors anyday.
    Ok rant over!!!

    @OMG Sorry but On the Road is not for twitards, hon. LMAO Go back to your tiger beat sites will you? I saw it and it was just so heartbreaking…One of the best movies of the year with one of the most acclaimed performances by this young actor. Great future ahead mr Hedlund! I bet he’ll nab some award nomination. Otherwise it would be such a travesty…
