'Hunger Games' Star Wes Bentley Talks Making Friends With Lenny Kravitz On Set
If you don't remember him from American Beauty, you will definitely remember Wes Bentley after The Hunger Games hits theaters on March 23! This blue-eyed actor portrays Seneca Crane in the film and chatted with Details magazine about becoming fast friends with rock star-turned-thespian Lenny Kravitz, who plays Cinna. He told the publication:
"Lenny Kravitz and I really clicked. We'd talk about acting and music, about his life in the Bahamas, hurricanes. Also how much we love—and really miss—eating burgers. He was getting ready for a tour, so he couldn't, and I've been cutting back ever since I got sober."Wes, 33, also talked about one of his other costars from Four Feathers, the late Heath Ledger. He said of the Dark Knight star's impact:
"He was as close as a person could be to me without being my actual brother. We both had that thing in us—a bit of reckless fearlessness. Whenever we got together, especially early on, we were all about pushing ourselves to be better. Not just as actors, but with our lives, too—the way we approached relationships, reading and writing poetry . . ."For more with Wes, pick up the latest issue of Details, on newsstands Tuesday, January 17, 2012.
