The following info was taken from Reelteen
_________Movie: Good Will Hunting

_________Band: Pearl Jam
________ Style: Jared is a T-shirt and jeans kind of guy.
________ Hangs with: Chad Michael Murray, the actor who plays Tristan on Gilmore Girls and Ryan Merriman (who he's in that new disney movie with) . (thanks to Bon for this bit of info :D)

Most embarassing moment: Maybe it's not his most embarassing moment, but Jared does admit to being quite nervous when he met Jennifer Love Hewitt. Sweaty palms, anyone?

Random stuff:
_________ *Has the same manager as Freddie Prinze Jr.
_________*Jared is often compared to Matt Damon
_________ *When asked why he should be chosen to be a presenter at the Teen Choice Awards, Jared told them, "My mom's been working hard all year and I think she deserves a vacation."...It's hard to believe but Jared wasn't the first choice to play Dean on Gilmore Girls. After filming the pilot, however, the producers didn't like the original actor, so he was cut and Jared scored the gig.

Before he was famous: Jared planned on attending the University of Texas and was spending his time on a ranch owned by Spurs chairman Peter Holt, building fences and digging ditches. But then he got hired to film the pilot for a show called Silent Witness (it never got picked up) and snagged the role on Gilmore Girls. So those college plans are on hold.

First Break: Winning the Claim to Fame Contest and being one of two real teen presenters at Fox's Teen Choice Awards in 1999. Soon after, he was being represented by the same manager who handles Freddie Prinze, Jr.

Famous for: Sweeping Rory Gilmore off her feet and making millions swoon on Gilmore Girls.

The Small Screen: In addition to Gilmore Girls and Silent Witness, Jared was a guest star on an episode of ER called "Piece of Mind."

All the World's a Stage:
In a freshman in high school, Jared got the lead in a play called The Happy Time (which inspired him to pursue acting).
