, the 35-year-old actor says he doesn't exactly suggest people follow in his footsteps when it comes to dating costars (we're talking about you, Scarlett Johansson!
)."I don't recommend it to young actors," Hartnett tells the mag.
He's been linked to Scarlett Johansson, Rihanna, Amanda Seyfried, and now the 25-year-old English actress Tamsin Egerton. If you want perfection, you're on the wrong planet. Finding people whose imperfections fit with yours, and vice versa. To avoid paparazzi we'd get two cars going different in directions. I have a tendency to romanticize things way out of proportion. Who's able to see the stark reality for what it is. But I've dated a couple girls who'd gone on meetings with Warren. I hope I'm not talking out of turn, but, you know, he's monogamous and he's in this relationship with his wife and obviously they have kids and they're very happy. I meet girls that I really think are interesting and have a coffee and talk about work and it's great.
This month, Hartnett makes a triumphant return to form in the creepy-cool Showtime series Not exactly, but it was a happy coincidence. [Laughs] You can make a lot of enemies in the business that way. and sometimes I was getting in the trunk of one of them to get from point A to point B in Los Angeles. I'd always wanted to take some time off and go home. I've heard it said many times that hindsight is 20-20. Alan Alda and I did a movie together a few years ago. One of the best things I've ever heard about marriage—and I guess monogamy comes with marriage—he said, I've been married to a different woman every five years and she's been married to a different man ever five years. We've had to learn how to live with each other at times. But we just have to learn to love each other again.

The casting director asked me to audition for a couple of movies and a TV show.
Josh - who previously dated actresses Kirsten Dunst, Scarlett Johansson and Amanda Seyfried - recently spoke about his desire to have children.
"You can make a lot of enemies in the business that way. "Hartnett, who has somewhat of a history of dating beautiful actresses, said he never bragged to his friends about romancing gorgeous Hollywood gals."They want to hear all about what you're doing," he said. Back when I dated a few very beautiful, very famous girls, I said something once—it wasn't really a complaint—and my buddy said, ‘Oh my God, my diamond shoes are too tight.' He coined the phrase."When asked what the secret to keeping a girlfriend happy is, Harnett dished, "Let them be on set whenever they want, with whichever costar you're working with. They get very suspicious."Sure sounds like he's learned some valuable dating lessons!
Hartnett starred as Trip Fontaine, the feather-haired teenage lothario who strolled down the high school hallway to Heart's "Magic Man." It was a movie star's entrance, but before long the backlash (This kid with the unibrow? ) and the nicknames (Josh Hotnett) were too much too soon, and Hartnett retreated home to Minnesota for 18 months to figure out what the hell just happened. You give everything and so you have a partner—a real partner—as opposed to someone who's around until the next best thing comes along.While he's worked mostly in indie films since, Hartnett, 35, hasn't been able to stay away from blockbuster women. Everyone turns out to be pretty disappointing in that book. Who acknowledges that nostalgia is filled with untruths.
