Garrett Hedlund believes he “won the lottery” by landing a role alongside Gwyneth Paltrow.

The actor is one of Hollywood’s brightest rising young stars, having featured in Four Brothers and Tron: Legacy, among other movies.

In Country Strong he portrayed Beau Hutton and filmed a number of scenes with Oscar-winning actress Gwyneth. And it is this that Garrett is most thankful for, especially as she was incredibly kind to him on set. 

“Gwyneth is so incredible – she couldn’t have been any sweeter to me. I think I won the lottery in this situation,” he told the British edition of Glamour.

In the movie, Garrett’s character works to try and help singer Kelly Canter, who is portrayed by Gwyneth. For the 26-year-old it was a dream come true, yet it did have its drawbacks as he was terrified of performing in front of a crowd.

“Country Strong was a dream role. I play a singer-songwriter who goes on tour with Kelly,” he said.

“Singing live was scary. I’d been playing around Nashville with my on-screen band to prepare for the role, but when it’s the first take in front of 500 – 1,000 people, your fingers get jittery between chord transitions.”

Garrett has also landed a role in the adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s famous novel On the Road. It stars sexy Twilight actress Kristen Stewart and he says moviegoers will have to wait and see if he gets romantic with her, or buy the original text. “When somebody asks, ‘Do you kiss Kristen’s character?’ I’m like, ‘Well read the book!’”
