I used to have a “Star Wars Episode II: Attack of the Clones” poster on the back of my door when I was maybe 14 or 15. It had a big picture of Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker on it, and I am now comfortable admitting that he was my favorite part of the poster. Anakin is probably his most well-known role, but more recently, he’s been in films like Jumper, Awake, Factory Girl, and Shattered Glass, in which he played infamous plagiarizing journalist, Stephen Glass. He recently got engaged to girlfriend Rachel Bilson, the lucky… girl.
Why He’s More Than Just Eye Candy: Okay, let’s be honest here: he’s really not the greatest actor. He’s a Keanu Reeves-calibre wooden actor. However, his performance in Shattered Glass was pretty good, so maybe we shouldn’t write him off just yet. Maybe he’s just had some bad material (not even the best actor can pull off George Lucas-written dialogue). Plus, he’s pretty and isn’t afraid to put that prettiness to work, modeling for Lacoste. Also, he just seems like a pretty nice guy. Sure.
