But I was trying to be in a balanced relationship and do some of the things that she would enjoy, too. Then afterward you think, 'Dang – did I do all that?' "
Interested in the X-Men Origins: Wolverine star? Then you should also be interested in an adrenaline rush. "The craziest thing I ever did [is] skydiving," Kitsch, 28, says.

"It's a really emotional experience when people are screaming at you all the time," the Twilight star, 23, told EW.com about the fan frenzy that follows him.
