It’s in Portuguese, but we should have a translation soon. This is what Na Estrada wrote on their Facebook page with the scans:

Check out the interview with Garrett Hedlund, the new Hollywood heartthrob for Serafina. He was interviewed at the home of Kirsten Dunst, his girlfriend, who also acts in the film.

“The film is about youth, a time when you feel that anything is possible,” says Garrett. “I was afraid of getting old for the role, but Walter told me: ‘You will not get old. You’re my boy”

ON THE ROAD KRISTEN SAM GARRETT INTERVIEW (Video) – The cast of On the Road continues their interview with Screenslam while connecting the movie to the book itself. They speak about wanting the audience to get the same experience after watching On the Road regardless of if they have read the book beforehand or not. Actress Kristen Stewart speaks about the different journeys the movie takes you on the more and more you watch it.

“You can kind of have a different experience every time you watch the movie. It doesn’t force you to feel anything. It’s kind of rare and unique in that way.” – Kristen Stewart

“Those that haven’t read the book say once they see the film you want them to have the same feeling as if they were to read the book, which was the feeling that all of us had.” – Garrett Hedlund

“These people have had the same experiences, live through the same times so that whatever music they come out of touches a nerve with other people of that time. ” – Sam Riley

Garrett visited Stella Artois’ Cannes Cinema Club during the 65th Annual Cannes Film Festival.

The 27-year-old actor talked with friends for a few hours while munching on chocolate, caramel popcorn, and Bugles. He chatted about his time at the amfAR gala with girlfriend Kirsten Dunst, his days as a mascot for the Huskies at Arizona’s Horizon High, and swimming with sharks in the Bahamas.

Garrett – whose Cannes trip marked the first time he’s been to France – will be flying back to Los Angeles tomorrow to start work on his new film, Lullaby, co-starring Amy Adams and Terrence Howard.

The project was written by and will be helmed by Andrew Levitas (his directorial debut).

I know there was extensive research for this film, with the real-life people involved and the Beat generation. How was that process for you in playing Dean Moriarty, who’s based on Neal Cassady? I know you spoke to Neal Cassady’s son John.

Garrett Hedlund: Yeah. It was really important for me, the trip that Walter Salles and I took to San Francisco to meet with John, it was very beneficial because I’d went with a notepad full of questions. And you have Neal Cassady’s son there, for five hours. We also spent time with people like Michael McClure, beat writers who were very much within this realm. I also spent the day with Carolyn Cassady, who’s still going strong and has such a wonderful, vivid memory of who her husband was. Through their stories you got to understand a soul that’s maybe not portrayed as much in the book. John Cassady said, “Jack wrote this and Jack wrote that, but my dad was such a loving father.” He told us some great fun stories. He remembered riding with him in the car and Neal, his Dad, was smoking what he thought was a Camel cigarette, but it smelled a little bit funny (laughs). It was a wonderful thing having John around, with him and I becoming buddies. He was a wonderful sort of co-pilot for this adventure.

Other than reading Jack Kerouac’s ‘On The Road,’ was there any particular material from Neal Cassady that helped inform your performance?

Garrett Hedlund: Neal Cassady had written this book called ‘The First Third,’ which was very helpful because it’s kind of like his diary in a way. It gave so much of his self. You got to see this rare, visceral spirit. That was a big help. Plus with the Scroll version of ‘One The Road’ that came out after the books 50th anniversary, that was a wonderful help because it was sort of a raw version of the book. The one that came out was cut down in terms of censorship, but the scroll version was very honest. That was very helpful.

3 young actors seize the day, go ‘On the Road’

Kristen Stewart understands the lure of the open road. So do her “On The Road” co-stars, Garrett Hedlund and Sam Riley.

The three young actors play the central love triangle in Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s Beat Generation novel, an experience that has helped them appreciate why the book is considered a classic.

The tale of wannabe writer (and Kerouac surrogate) Sal Paradise and his friend Dean Moriarty crisscrossing the United States in search of freedom and the elusive “it” was published in 1957. But Stewart said the way it captures the heady feeling of young adulthood is timeless.

“You’re so filled with something that is hard to identify at this age,” said the “Twilight” star, who plays Dean’s teenage bride Marylou, a free spirit torn between the lure of adventure and desire for a more settled life.

“You’re just bursting, and (the characters) value that so much,” said Stewart, who is just 22 herself. “They don’t ignore it. That celebration of youth and exploration is just something that you envy.

“I read it right at the point when I was about to get my (driver’s) license, and I thought, wow, I want to meet people who push me the way people push each other. I wanted to be more like them.”

Minnesota-born Hedlund (“Troy,” ”Tron: Legacy”) plays the carnal, vital Moriarty, a character modeled on Kerouac’s friend Neal Cassady. He said some things have changed since Kerouac wrote his freewheeling, impressionistic story,

“Back then a car was 100 bucks and all you had to choose between was a radio and a heater, and things seemed a little freer,” said the 27-year-old actor. “The roads seemed more open than they are today, but a young person’s ambitions are still the same. Everybody between the ages of 17 and 21 or 22 still feels that they can achieve anything they want in life if they are ambitious enough.”
