Garrett Hedlund Reveals How He Began Dating Kirsten Dunst
Garrett Hedlund and Kirsten Dunst's relationship sounds like a romantic comedy!
In the February issue of Details, Hedlund, 28, finally reveals how he wooed Dunst, 30, his costar in the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac's On the Road; the two were first linked in the beginning of 2012. "I took her out on a 3 a.m. canoe ride," the actor reveals. "It was not a stable canoe. We fell out and had to swim back in mucky, sh-tty water, like golf-pond water."
Referring to Dunst as "my gal," Hedlund also provides the magazine with a sample of his original poetry: "Everything you ever knew seems to slowly be forgotten. All the good nights are just nights, all the good mornings are just mornings, all the dots in the sky are the same dots you've been looking at all your life."
Hedlund says he's always been a writer, whether he's penning poems or journaling. "I spill it out as fast as I can. I don't really edit," he says. "In Brazil, recently, I wrote 70 pages. In London, 80 pages."
As a high school student in Arizona, Hedlun recalls, "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."
The closet bookworm adds, "I felt I gained something that nobody else who had to read it in school got, because I realized all this stuff on my own instead of a teacher saying, 'What do you think so-and-so meant in this moment?'"
