Now, Harnett stars in the upcoming Showtime series Penny Dreadful, and he sat down with Details Magazine to discuss where he' been.

He says, "I did, like, 10 independent films, but none of them landed with an audience... So I figured I could continue to beat my head against the wall, or I could ...

Josh Hartnett: 'They Called Me A Hollywood Cad'

Josh Hartnett
Josh Hartnett loves his ladies' man label but insists his Hollywood reputation couldn't be further from the truth - because he has only had "two real relationships" in his life.

The Pearl Harbor hunk has been linked to a series of A-list beauties, including actress Scarlett Johansson and chart stunner Rihanna, and admits he finds the false rumors amusing.

He says, "Ninety-five per cent of the rumors are false and I just laugh. It's funny how they connect you to everyone in the room. They called me a Hollywood cad. I think it's fantastic, having been in two real relationships in my life....

Halloween II
When John Carpenter envisioned his horrific tale of a serial killer terrorizing his family more than 30 years ago, he likely had no idea that "Halloween" would become one of the longest-running film franchises ever.

Here are nine stars who have felt Michael Myers' wrath in the "Halloween" films.

Movies With Heart: The 100 Best 'Romdramedies' Of The Past 20 Years

4/17/2008 8:00am EDT
There's the quintessential romantic comedy, and then there's the romdramedy. Similar to a dramedy (in which there is an equal balance of humor and serious content), a romdramedy combines comedy and drama with that mushy thing we call romance.

This is not a list of the best films over the past 20 years. Rather it is a list that gives preferences to those films that best combine all three elements - romance, comedy and drama.

Films like Magnolia and The Matrix were barred from competition, while films like Down with Love were considered (however, that one didn't make the cut)....

Imagine carrying loads of shopping bags while pushing aside walls of doe-eyed tourists, teenage Elle Woods' carrying baby Bruisers, and cell phone yelling brokers in Armani power suits. When three strangers from nowhere decide to casually stroll in your way, you lose patience and BAM!, you shove the middle man aside.

Only a few blocks later, you turn around and realize that you pushed third baseman for the Yankees Alex Rodriguez, who was slowly walking and chatting with two much shorter businessmen. This unfortunate incident actually occurred to one embarrassed New Yorker. Yet in th...

Scarlett Johansson has revealed shooting sex scenes with real-life boyfriend Josh Hartnett was not romantic. The Lost In Translation actress stars opposite Josh in new movie Black Dahlia and in one scene the couple are seen romping on a kitchen table. Scarlett admits filming the raunchy sequence was far from fun.

She said: "It was interesting doing that scene with Josh but it wasn't particularly romantic. Shooting these sorts of scenes often end up being more funny than anything else. I'm glad it comes off as sexy because in reality it was more like an organized boxing match."
