Josh Duhamel has a lot to live up to now that he’s bringing a Nicholas Sparks leading man to life. But how will Duhamel’s in Safe Haven compare to Ryan Gosling’s work in The Notebook, Channing Tatum’s performance in Dear John or Liam Hemsworth’s star-making role in The Last Song?
That was just one of the questions I asked when Duhamel rang up ETonine in support of A Night With Nicholas Sparks’ Safe Haven: Filmmakers, Author and Stars Bring the Book to Life, the NCM Fathom event taking place in cinemas nationwide on January 17.
ETonline: This is a very cool partnership you’re doing with NCM Fathom. What appealed to you about this opportunity?
Josh Duhamel: I thought it was an interesting new way to get people interested and involved with the movie. The way Hollywood involves fans now is much different than it was when I first started, 12 years ago. Especially with a genre like this.
ETonline: Twitter has become a major way stars connect with their fans. Are you a fan of the platform?
Duhamel: It’s interesting. There’s something to be said about keeping your anonymity in some ways; maintaining some mystery.

I’m not a completely closed book; I’m a social person and if I see something worth sharing, I’m happy to do that. Read the rest of this entry »

Long before they became mega movie stars, Josh Duhamel and Ashton Kutcher were simply two Midwestern boys trying to make it in the modeling world.
In 1997, North Dakota-raised Duhamel beat Kutcher for the title of Male Model of the Year. At the time, the Safe Haven star described the achievement as “the happiest moment of my life.” In hindsight, Duhamel can’t help but laugh at his former self.
“We joke about it all the time,” Duhamel, 39, says of Kutcher, 34, in an interview with Yahoo’s OMG!. “When I see him, we always have a good laugh about it. We were so into it. We thought we were so cool. It was like a real-life Zoolander.” Read the rest of this entry »

Josh Duhamel is happy that rumors of an affair rocked his marriage with Fergie.
Speaking candidly about his alleged affair Sunday, Duhamel said their marriage is so much “stronger” because of what they went through.
“There’s been some difficult moments in this marriage. It was rough for a while, but now I think we’re stronger than before,” Duhamel shared with Oprah Winfrey. “I’m a lot better of a person than I was before.”
According to Duhamel, who met Fergie on the set of the series “Vegas” in 2004, he is much better of a person, a man in particular, than he was prior. Read the rest of this entry »
