Garrett Hedlund Talks About Kristen with Next Movie

Were you worried at all that Kristen Stewart's personal drama would derail the release of the film or affect how people saw it?
Oh, no, I didn't think about that whatsoever. For her, I was so excited that she was going to play this role because she's so dedicated. When I saw "Into the Wild," I thought man, this girl would be perfect to play Marylou, you know, a girl that seemed to be wise beyond her years for a character like Marylou that was 20 years wise beyond her years. I was so excited. From the moment she jumped onto this project, she was so passionate. She had read the book when she was 15 and talked to Walter and was a fanatic about it and she spent hours and hours going over audiotapes of Marylou, the actual character, and getting the voice completely down. I was super excited that it was her and also Sam [Riley]. When I watched "Control," when I reached the end, I immediately started it again, and then again the next day. I was such a fan of his, I thought his role in "Control" was so f**king great.

Kristen also has her fair share of nudity and un-Bella Swan-like behavior. How do you think her "Twilight" fans will react?
I think she's so wonderful in this project that they're going to be proud to see someone that they cherish so much in a whole different light.

Do you hope Twi-hards come see the movie?
Do I hope? That's a very modest way of putting that. Do I hope? No, I pray! I f**kin' pray to the literary gods! The more people that come see it, I just hope it inspires them to pick up the book, first and foremost.

  1. As much as I love and adore Kristen, I am so tired of every one of her co-stars being asked about how she did in the movie, how her life affected the movie, how twi-hards will perceive the movie. Garrett is an actor who worked his ass off in this movie (I haven't seen it yet and hope it comes to my area but I doubt it). All the actors Kristen has worked with must get tired of having the focus be on Kristen and Twilight versus themselves and the current movie they are promoting.

    Don't get me wrong - I LOVE THIS GIRL!! and I love hearing other actors and industry people praise her but this was an interview with Garrett Hedlund and the questions are about Kristen. I don't see many interviews with Kristen where practically every question is about other actors.

    I bet Kristen feels the need to apologize to her co-stars for knowing they will be bombarded with questions about her. The only plus to all this is that it's great that Kristen can bring $$ to the box office and get movies made with her name and amazing acting ability.

    I'm just ranting - don't hate's been one of those days.

  2. well said Mr.Garret, thank you, you always so nice with kristen

  3. I hope they'll do a movie together again

  4. I havent sern the movie OTR and i do admired kristen as an actress shes ver talented but isnt she just a supporting actress in this movie because on every interview with garret or sam or kirsten they always ask about kristen like saying how is she different than bella swan i mean i read comments of ppl that have seen the movie snd they say that when theres a scene of kristen shes naked or having sex.


Promote what you love instead of bashing what you hate <3
