Garrett and Emma first made headlines as a couple in March of last year, when they were spotted holding hands while on a walk in Los Angeles. At the time, their relationship wasn’t anything too serious. After all, it had only been a few weeks prior that Emma and Evan Peters had reportedly spit for good. Back then, sources close to the new Emma-Garrett couple said,


“They have gone on a few casual dates and are exploring a relationship, but it is definitely not anything serious yet.”

Before his relationship with Kirsten Dunst between the years of 2012 to 2016, Garrett was spotted getting cosy with his ‘Country Song’ costar, Gossip Girl’s Leighton Meester. This was after the pair got close while filming and at 2011 Golden Globes afterparty, Garrett and Leighton were seen hanging out at the bar, where they were seen laughing and even shared a kiss. However, nothing panned out and the only thing to come of that is their song, ‘Give in to Me’, which was released as a part of the soundtrack for ‘Country Song’. And then in 2012, it was reported that Garret was dating Dunst. The two met a year earlier on the set of the film adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s ‘On the Road’. Dunst even talked about their romance, saying, “We’re the same age. We have similar backgrounds” while speaking to Town & Country. Because the pair were last seen at the 2016 Golden Globes, together and smiling wide, there were rumours of their possible engagement but the two split before that could happen.



Garrett Hedlund has worked on over 17 acting projects, won awards AND he. can. sing.
