Garrett Hedlund for Details

Here’s what the 28-year-old On the Road actor had to share with Details.
On how he wooed girlfriend Kirsten Dunst
I took her out on a 3 a.m. canoe ride. It was not a stable canoe. We fell out and had to swim back in mucky, shitty water, like golf-pond water. 
On choosing roles
I just really wanted to do things that could make me proud or be emotional. 
On journaling his thoughts
I spill it out as fast as I can. I don’t really edit. In Brazil, recently, I wrote 70 pages. In London, 80 pages. 
On his high school hangout
I'd hang out at the Borders Bookstore until it closed and then I would stick the book back on the shelf until the next day. That was safe. No one was going to buy three copies of [Charles] Bukowski's Tales of Ordinary Madness by the next afternoon.
