Josh Hartnett: 'They Called Me A Hollywood Cad'

Josh HartnettJosh 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. It doesn't surprise me because they want to make a story out of anything, really. That's just the bread and butter of a lot of magazines these days. What's surprising is how obsessed people are about it."

Hartnett also admits he tries to stay out of the tabloids - because he doesn't want his personal life to affect his acting roles.

 He adds, "The more you stay out of the spotlight, the more believable you are as an actor. You don't want anyone knowing about your life anyway."
