Actor Josh Hartnett
is suing a British newspaper which claimed he was caught on camera enjoying a "sexual dalliance" with an unknown female in a London hotel room.
The Daily Mirror
report suggested Hartnett was verbally warned by security bosses at the Soho Hotel
last week after security cameras taped his encounter.
Hartnett appeared on British talk show GMTV
on Tuesday to deny the allegations. He told presenters, "It's incredible the stories they (the British newspapers) come out with. In the States at least they have to make a call to a representative and try to make a reality out of the situation. Over here (in Britain) they just make things up. (The paper said) there was a rumor about a video. But how can you have a rumor about a video? It would be on the Internet (by) now."
And he is now seeking an apology and damages from the publication. Hartnett's legal representatives have described the allegations as "not only untrue but a complete fabrication.... defamatory and unsubstantiated".
The actor is in London preparing to star in a West End production of Rain Man
, which is due to open on September 19th.
