hayden1.jpgYou might remember actor Hayden Christensen as the young, brooding Jedi Knight-turned Darth Vader in the latest Star Wars prequels. If like most people, however, you find you’ve blocked them out (Damn you Jar Jar!), then perhaps Christensen is hoping you’ll zero in on his new movie Jumper; which happened to take the #1 spot this week at the box office. Either way, a lot has happened in his life since a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away and the 26-year old recently opened up to Details magazine on those changes. Including his efforts to put together a little farm of his own. From the article,

“He has plenty of projects to keep him busy—he’s planting trees, clearing fields, moving earth. He’s hoping to plant some lavender fields. ‘It doesn’t require much maintenance, but apparently it’s a bitch to harvest, because you have to cut it all by hand,’ he says. He’s even thinking of acquiring some livestock. ‘Start off with some cattle and horses, then get a little more inventive. Get some sheep, some goats. Maybe an alpaca.’”

Hayden also talked about his two potbellied pigs have helped curb his cravings for meat.

“‘That’s Buddy and Petunia,’ he says. He got them not long ago. ‘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.’”
