Garrett Hedlund has found it difficult to leave 'On the Road' behind.

Garrett Hedlund finds it difficult to leave 'On the Road' behind.

The actor and model "immersed" himself in the works of Jack Kerouac, William Burroughs and Alan Ginsberg for five years before filming the adaption of Kerouac's cult novel - set in the 40s and featuring all three writers - and it has left a lasting impression on him.

He said: "It's not easy to leave 'On the Road' behind because I'm such a fan of the generation, such a fan of the material.

"After five years of reading the material and immersing yourself in the jazz, it's not like you want to deplete or delete that experience."

Garrett also met his girlfriend, Kirsten Dunst, on the set and the pair have been inseparable since their first date canoe trip - when they capsized.

He said: "I took her out on a 3am canoe ride. It was not a stable canoe. We fell out and had to swim back in mucky, s****y water, like golf-pond water."

Garrett also paid tribute to director Walter Salles for the way 'On the Road' - which was met with mixed reviews from critics - turned out.

He added: "I loved the process of making the movie, you can't take back those miles. I just feel so honored to be part of it. My love for Walter Salles, I can't put a number on that. I wouldn't trade it for the world."

Colin Farrell, Taylor Kitsch ‘in talks’ to star in ‘True Detective’ Season 2?

Jul 14 2014 7:40am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

I was a little bit late getting to the True Detective party. I only recently binge-watched the series, so I guess I missed out on a lot of the episode-by-episode drama and conspiracy theories. I enjoyed Season 1 a lot (I love crime stories and police procedurals), but I can see where people would be disappointed by the lack of some overarching conspiracy and takedown of more people connected to the murders. That being said, it was a well-written series with spectacular acti ...

‘Unbroken’ trailer released: will it be an Oscar contender or not so much?

Jul 11 2014 6:35am CDT | Source: Celebitchy.com

Well, well. The first real, full-length trailer for Unbroken was released yesterday. I’m still sort of processing it. This is Angelina Jolie’s second full-length feature film as a director, and it looks like she’s jammed a lot of big, historical set pieces and a lot of action into the story of the late, great Louis Zamperini. Jack O’Connell (a young English actor) stars as teenage and adult Louis, and the film also stars Garrett Hedlund (who is barely recogniza ...
