Hayden Christensen in Details Magazine

You Can't Keep Hayden Down

Hayden Christensen is showing off his super spiky hair and smoldering stare in this month's Details magazine. We've got to hand it to him for having the brooding boy act down cold. Hayden's been all over the place promoting Jumper with Rachel, but in the article he was more interested in talking about Star Wars, plus a few tidbits about his pet piggies and how he deals with being pegged as a bad actor. Here are highlights:

  • On his pet pigs: "That's Buddy and Petunia. I'm not a vegetarian, but since I've gotten these guys, I can't eat pork anymore. It's killing me. I especially love prosciutto."
  • On the backlash for his acting in Star Wars: "How those movies are made is very specific, as far as what our jobs are. George isn't looking for us to come in and have script meetings with him and talk about characters. It wasn't necessarily anything you could feel good about creatively, as far as 'This is why I became an actor.' It's not why you become an actor, to do that stuff"
  • On his personal motto, ILLEGITIMI NON CARBORUNDUM, "It was a saying among soldiers in World War II. It means 'Don't let the bastards get you down."

It sounds like Hayden won't have a hard time living up to his own advice this week. Even though Jumper didn't get rave reviews, it still scored the No. 1 spot at the box office last weekend.
