The 35-year-old was born in Minnesota. When he was younger, he moved to Scottsdale, Arizona with his mom, and started taking acting classes.

When he was 18, he made the decision to move to Los Angeles to pursue his acting career.

“Then someone said to me, ‘If you want to catch a fox, you’ve got to be in the forest.’ So I graduated early and moved to LA when I was 18. Luckily enough, my first movie was Troy,” Hedlund told The Evening Standard.

Believe it or not, Roberts isn’t Hedlund’s first high-profile relationship.

The actor started dating Kirsten Dunst in 2011 when they met on the set of “On the Road.” They were together for four years before calling it quits in 2016.

“They have very different personalities and weren’t on the same page when it came to their future,” a source told People at the time. “Their relationship has been very rocky for a while, so the breakup is actually a relief for them.”

He’s Been Linked To Roberts Since 2019

Roberts and Hedlund were first linked back in March 2019, after they were spotted together in Los Angeles.

At the time, it was reported their relationship was just casual seeing as the actress had just split from her on and off again boyfriend, Evan Peters.

Roberts and Peters started dating in 2012 and were even engaged before they ended things for good last year.

During a 2019 interview with Cosmopolitan, Roberts opened up on the difficulties of dating in the public eye.

“It’s hard enough to be with someone by yourself, let alone with an audience,” she told the magazine.

Roberts continued, “Growing up is hard. Sometimes it makes me sad that I can’t have a private moment. Because of Twitter and Instagram, there’s a whole other element where everybody can comment on what you’re doing, and no one knows the real story. That’s hard. … I know what’s true, and I know what happened in my own life, and so do the people that love me and who I love.”
