What else did the young actor like to do?
Eddie Hassell was pretty passionate about surfing and skateboarding. During an interview with Elle magazine, he also opened up about what it was like to work with Ashton Kutcher.
Really cool. A lot of kids in my generation see him as an icon, so I was excited going in. I expected a super-happy-go-lucky, goofy guy, but he’s very professional and business-oriented. He stays in character the whole time, between takes. But he’d also do things to keep everyone loose, like cracking jokes or hooking up his iPod to loudspeakers and blasting Fun.. I definitely learned things from him.”
The young actor dishes on some of the pointers Ashton shared with him: “I asked him some technical questions, like how he stays so consistent. He actually broke it down, in-depth, and gave me some good pointers, things I’m actually using in projects now. That was really cool; he didn’t have to do that.”
