Garrett paid for the acting lessons with the money he earned working part-time as a waiter. After completing his education in 2003, he moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dream of becoming an actor.
He met Kirsten Dunst in 2012 when two were filming for the movie, ‘On The Road’; they began dating soon after.
