Josh Hartnett, 34, wears stonewashed skinny jeans at LAX: would you hit it?

At first I thought these photos were from Sundance, but they’re not. They’re just a really rare sighting of Josh Hartnett at LAX. He’s giving us two different looks because he realized he was being lovingly photographed – I assume that his first look was the dark-frames eyeglasses that give him an air of nerdy-hot hipster. Then he changed into the sunglasses and he just looked like a typical LA d-bag. I should also mention – I’m not impressed with the combination of black stone-washed skinny jeans and brown shoes. TRAGIC.

I’m continually amazed at Josh’s ability to still be a “thing”. I remember when he first came on the scene in the early aughts. Many thought he was the American Heath Ledger, and that was before everyone was like “Heath Ledger is the great hope for a generation of actors.” This was back when Heath was just a really beautiful, blonde Aussie boy that everyone was trying to make into the next pin-up. And they tried that with Josh too, and much like Heath, Josh rejected it and went off and did his own thing, only Josh’s attempts were much less successful (career-wise). After taking a two-year break, Josh has one new movie coming out this year – “an epic, sweeping and riveting tale of an impossible love set across two time periods and continents” called Singularity. Eh.

The last I heard about Josh’s private life, he was dating Amanda Seyfried, but I’m almost positive that it’s already done. Like, they dated for a few months in the end of 2011, maybe? And then it was done. I don’t know if he has a girlfriend now.

Anyway… this has been your Josh Hartnett update. We so rarely get any photos or news about him, I just felt like I should update you on his whereabouts. So, the important question: would you hit it? Eh. I was feeling it circa 2001 (Black Hawk Down, bitches!), but not so much these days. Also: does anyone else look at him and think, “Garrett Hedlund, this is your future”?

    No. He’s kind of like the slightly-hotter-parallel-universe Ashton Kutcher. Which is the most enthusiasm I can muster for him.

  2. alons -y alonso says:

    ‘Would you hit it?’ LOL, no.

  3. katie says:

    i would definitely still hit it.

  4. silken_floss says:

    I will always have a special place in my heart for Josh Hartnett. That is all.

  5. Miss Kiki says:

    I totally would, I feel like I should be embarrassed about this but I’m not.

  6. K-rock says:

    2nd to last pic he looks like Rob Lowe back in the day.

    And yeah, I’d hit it. I’d hit it, pick it back up and hit it again. lol

  7. Melissa says:

    Maybe back in the days of 40 days and nights/ The Faculty, now….not so much.

    He screams dirty hipster to me, I hate the fad those big black rimmed glasses. -_-;

  8. Dirtnap says:

    I would still hit it, and he could even wear those ugly brown shoes while I was hitting it.

  9. annabelle says:


    Then again, most of the time I look at him, all I see is the hot dude in a towel a la Lucky Number Slevin.

  10. Ms Kay says:

    He always had a special place in my heart since The Faculty, ups and downs, I still find him hot, despite not being HW little darling anymore… Crazy how people turn their back on someone and suddenly he’s labelled a “has been” and other “D-bag”… I mean uh??? He doesn’t look like he needs a shower does he? Or any earthquake scandal? Anyhoo…

    I’d hit it with the strength of Superwoman, him being Clark Kent with those glasses.

    Can’t believe he’s turning 35 this year… I’m younger and yet I feel old :-D

    • Miss Kiki says:

      Twins. I just posted the same thing above. In fact I’ve just come to the realisation that he’s my (one of many) foreverdong.

      CB keeps dropping the d-bag in there but I don’t see it, I know of nothing that he’s done to qualify that statement. He’s always seemed like a decent guy. Now that he’s joined my exclusive foreverdong club one of the perks is that I will vehemently defend him against any attacks.

    • Ms Kay says:

      @ Miss Kiki,

      Hmmm I shall give you a bit of a side eye, to save the bitchy face :-P

      I mean it’s obvious he was wearing the glasses indoors, then when he got outside the airport he simply switched for sunglasses, so the “D-bag” dropping is a head scratcher here.. Ah well CB is CB eh :-D

      Well he hasn’t been much lucky lately career wise, but perhaps he also wanted to go under the radar and do something else nay be produce or music etc..? He isn’t starving per se (dude is worth over $40 Million) so may be he took some time off too who knows… Either way, he’s more than welcome to find me in Europe so I’ll teach him to speak French and Italian, and how to say “will you marry me?” and so on… Aaaahhh!

  11. Juliet Andrews says:

    It looks like he got the 2-for-1 offer at Specsavers.

  12. bopit says:

    He was an amazing 70s high school god in The Virgin Suicides… I’d hit that on a football field fo sho.

  13. Megan says:

    He’s from Minneapolis, so we usually get a lot of random Josh sightings around here. I stood behind him at the Best Coast show this summer, and he had a hot British model looking chick with him. I was impressed with how nice he was to the random people chatting him up. He introduced himself as “Josh” to the guy in front of him, which made me laugh, because I’m pretty sure most people knew he he was. I checked out his shoes that night, and I remember them being bad! Hahaha! He had a guest DJ spot on our local indie radio station this past Friday (the current), which was pretty entertaining, too.

  14. raindrop says:

    I enjoyed some of his early work (like Virgin Suicides), and he was fantastic in Lucky Number Slevin and Bunraku.

  15. j.eyre says:

    I think he looks cute here. Not on the Hit List, however.

  16. GoodCapon says:

    He was so hot in Pearl Harbor. Excuse me while I reminisce for a few minutes…

  17. wow says:

    The close up makes him look like a younger for buff Johnny depp

  18. Dani says:

    Good to know I’m not alone. I would definitely hit it.

  19. geekychick says:

    I adore, ADORE that movie with Lucy Liu (sp?), Bruce Willis and him. It’s so out of the norm, I gained some respect for him after I saw it, so I’m kinda still rooting for him. I’ve never seen his “famous” movies (I think I was nauseous just from the trailer for Pearl Harbor).
    I think he’s very handsome, just not my type. Slightly worrying that with 34 he still wants to look like a college boy, but I’ll give him a pass.

    btw (don’t kill me people!!), I was never impressed with Ledger. Ok, I was, but more in “10 reasons I hate about you” (as a teen), then in Batman. Jack Nicholson as Joker all the way!

  20. Emma - the JP Lover says:

    (Le Sigh) I’d hit it hard and often. ;)

    I’ve always thought this young man was fine.

  21. Rachel R says:

    Ah, yeah, I’d probably still hit it. Even though he looks like Johnny Depp Lite right there.

  22. Ginger says:

    I’d hit it too. 😍Love his voice.

  23. Mira says:

    He was in Black Hawk Down? Really? I don’t remember. There were a lot of dudes in BHD and I don’t remember most of them except for Eric Bana, and then started the Bana love.

  24. Mrs. Darcy says:

    Yes,a million times yes. He has been my shame hit for years now. Usually I require talent to get hot for an actor, not this man though. So pretty, so wooden on screen, I cannot help myself. I do see the Johnny Depp thing which makes sense as until recently Johnny was my forever crush.Josh looks grungey but like he actually showers, just another pretty dude trying to ugly up with beanie hats and bad clothes. He has the worst hair in the history of film in nearly everything, that centre parting ugh, but nothing (so far)can make him not do-able to me.

  25. kim says:

    If he ditches thoses too small for his face
    frames … I may wham bam thank and u sir him.

  26. Happy21 says:

    He is superhot still. I’d so hit it. I miss seeing that face in the movies though.

  27. Amilu says:

    YES. He’s as cute now as he was 15 years ago. I wish he made more appearances (in film and press). I never thought anything about him until Lucky Number Slevin, but since then…

    Even in the bizarre Asian movies he’s been in, he’s just so dang likable. And he’s not a bad actor at all.

  28. Karen says:

    I work with a guy who looks exactly like a young Josh Hartnett, and I think he’s adorable. Also, I’m kind of getting a johnny depp vibe in these photos?

  29. Lee says:

    Does anyone else watch Pretty Little Liars? (yes, I am an adult. no shame! ha.) He looks like Caleb grown up. I wish there was a photo of him checking his phone with a terrified/confused expression.

  30. Mr. Stinky FishFace says:

    I’d hit it forward, backwards, and upside down. Yummy.

  31. Janet says:

    Haven’t seen him in anything except The Black Dahlia, but I liked him in that.

  32. Mitch Buchanan Rocks! says:

    He is very attractive – wearing roofer boots.

  33. Ms Kay says:

    Speaking of Heath Ledger, today is the 5th anniversary of his death… RIP.

  34. Hooip says:

    Josh Hartnett is GORGEOUS!!! So cute!

  35. Miss M says:

    Last time I checked, he still was on my list of fave dongs! Since I know Scarjo and my pocket boyfriend, Jeremy Renner (shhhhh, I stole him from Kaiser) will never happen…I so wish that ScarJo and Josh got back together!

  36. Dahlia1947 says:

    ive always loved him so YES YES i would!

  37. Lexi says:

    I have always thought that he was really hot, and i think he still is really hot, i would totally hit it

  38. Lexi says:

    Yup, he is really hot and sexy, he always has been

  39. pinns says:

    Couldn’t the glasses just be the same ones with the light-reaction lenses in them? But yes, they are too narrow for the width of his face.

    Sartorial choices aside, he’s still purty..
