Garrett Hedlund covers ‘Flaunt’, Says He’s a Private Guy
‘Country Strong’ actor Garrett Hedlund covers the new issue of ‘Flaunt’ and in the editorial, he revealed that he won’t use social media as he wants to retain some privacy.
Hedlund, who is currently in a relationship with actress Kirsten Dunst, has never had a Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, but he does have a secret Instagram account, which has just three followers. “The industry can be very small sometimes,” he tells ‘Flaunt’. “I think the only way to keep even the smallest amount of privacy is to just not participate.”
Here are some highlights from the interview:
Be open: “Every once in a while we remember that life is short, and to appreciate the time with your friends and family, and to be open to have beautiful exciting moments in your days and stop worrying about what’s pulling you down.”
His dad came to visit him in LA: “It’s hard to get him off the farm, to fly. He’s gotten older now, but he was able to do it. He was helped by the assistants at the airport—not people with Blackberrys but people with a wheelchair. It’s not all that glamorous. But it’s nice for someone on the farm to come to a beautiful city where it’s primarily 90 degrees all year round and you get to see the ocean and see a faster-paced life. But really, he’s just proud of me. ”
Hedlund has some interesting projects coming up: ‘Lullaby’ opposite ‘The Notebook’ actress Amy Adams; Mojave (post-production); Unbroken (post-production), and Pan (filming).
