Garrett Hedlund Was Not Intimidated by Angelina Jolie

Garrett Hedlund Was Not Intimidated by Angelina Jolie

Garrett Hedlund shows off his classic good looks for the cover of Man of the World‘s latest issue.

Here is what the 29-year-old Lullaby actor had to share with the mag:

On the outdoorsy life he wants for his kids: “Everything that pushed me away is what pulls me back now. It’s the kind of life I’d like to give my own kids when I have them. It could be boring and lonely as shit, and we would wish we had more material things, like cool toys, but then we’d disappear into the woods for days with a hammer and a bag of nails to build a tree fort.”

On if he was intimated by Angelina Jolie on Unbroken: “No, but I had met her a few time before, through Brad [Pitt]. She was great in terms of letting us develop whatever ideas we had about our characters. We’d pick out our own wardrobe, and she’d tell us, ‘You go into hair and makeup and come out the way you want.’ There was no, ‘Everyone else is clean-shaven, so we’re gonna put a mustache on you.’ It was a beautiful permission to have, to develop the character of John. I can’t wait to see the movie because I can’t wait to meet him.”

On being a troublemaking child: “I was a little klepto. Mostly I’d steal candy because we weren’t allowed that as kids. We’d go on wrestling trips to different towns and we’d throw our bags down and go straight to the nearest convenience store, and come walking back with Kit Kats and Snickers and Pogs, which were a big thing then. Every other kid had money to buy things and I didn’t.”

FYI: Garrett is wearing Billy Reid on the cover.

    @hot!: lmao I think it’s kind of amusing that whenever two famous people date, people always say that the female is the ugly one, because apparently you and everyone in the internet are victoria secret’s models, amirite? lol i think they are a hot couple but that’s just me

  • ballsdeep

    Who would be intimidated by her she’s as fake as they come.

  • ballsdeep

    @FEST: i think it’s funny that you don’t think Kirsten is ugly because she is. I don’t care how beautiful of a personality she has she’s no looker. Just like Kim kartrashian is seen as the hottest thing she has the ugliest personality
    Let’s be realistic here Kirstens been looking like she’d be an old trailer trash grandma since jumanji.

    never thought dunst had a pretty face and i think hedlund deserves better, i thought him and leighton meester were gonna date after country strong but i love her with adam brody. garrett is gonna go places, he’s aging really, really well and his acting in Lullaby is amazing from the trailer i saw, i think he will get noticed by the academy pretty soon ;)

  • bbm

    soooo handsome! HAVE KIDS ALREADY

  • jen

    i don’t particularly think kirsten to be the prettiest, but she’s definitely a decent looking woman better than kim kardashian at least idk from where you guys think that she’s the hotest y’all just jealous cause dunst is getting that D but that’s pointless cause celebrities’ lifes belong to their own and they will and must date whoever they like regardless of our peasants’ opinions.

    I always thought she was cute. They seem happy together. I am really looking forward to Lullaby.
