Twenty years earlier, an excessive Vanity Fair story entirely altered Josh Hartnett‘s views on Hollywood—and his own profession.
The 22-year-old increasing star had actually landed excellent functions in The Virgin Suicides, Pearl Harbor and Black Hawk Down, however this 2001 publication interview had him shuttering about his future.
Hartnett, now 42 and dealing with his partner Tamsin Egerton in Surrey, England, assessed the minute that made him resentful towards Hollywood in an interview with The Guardian on Friday, Oct. 23.
“Oh, that was an awful piece,” he stated. “Was there even a quote from me in it, or was it just everyone talking about how hot I was? People got a chip on their shoulder about me after that. They genuinely thought I’d been thrust on them. It was a very weird time.”
He was stunned that he was being compared to Tom Cruise and Julia Roberts, stating, “That’s insane. It was a set-up-to-fail moment.”
