Star: Amanda Seyfried and Josh Hartnett are dating, he’s really into her

Do you remember Josh Hartnett? He seemingly disappeared from the mainstream Hollywood radar a handful of years ago, which also coincided with the final breakup of his long-term relationship relationship with Scarlett Johansson in late 2007. Of course, those two broke up more than once, and a Dlisted reader spotted him attempting to get over ScarJo during one of their “off” periods by getting a beej in a bar bathroom from some random chick. Guess it didn’t work.

Anyway, I always found Josh to be sort of geeky cute even though I unfailingly associate him with the womanizing character he played in The Virgin Suicides. And he might very well be a douche in real life too. He’s taken to dating models and has supposedly been in a relationship with girlfriend Sophia Lie for about a year. Did they break up? Who knows, but Star has him hitting up Amanda Seyfried now:

Opposites attract? Well, maybe. But gorgeous Amanda Seyfried, 26 — who recently split from regular guy Andrew Joblon, a real estate exec, after five months together — and hunky Josh Hartnett just might be a perfect match. When the double-dated with “Dexter” costars (and back-on couple) Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter at L.A.’s Chateau Marmont on Jan 28, “Amanda and Josh were so comfortable with each other,” and observer tells Star. He really seemed into her.” That might be why Josh, 33, has cooled it with model Sophia Lie, whom he was seeing for a year!

That’s a strange little tidbit about Hall and Carpenter, right? Us Weekly does indeed have a new story (with a cozy photo of him holding her) about their possible reconcilation even though an insider claims they’re merely “good friends.” You know, good friends who cuddle and hold each other.

Part of me wants to believe this story because I think Josh and Amanda would make a smashing couple in the looks department. Still, Amanda has made quite a commotion about not being promiscuous and not having sex with everyone she dates; and Josh is the guy who got a random bathroom beej, so he might not be into a lady of so-called virtue. However, Amanda really does have a weakness for douches as evidenced by her past relationships with Ryan Phillipe and Dominic Cooper, so maybe she’ll fall for Josh after all.

Also, both Josh and Amanda are dog people. That’s gotta count for something.

    Aw, I like Amanda. I want her to be happy. Let’s hope this guy does not screw up (or around).

    • Capella says:

      Anything other than sleazy Dominic Cooper is good in my book. And Josh is closer to her age than when she was dating Ryan Philippe.

      To be fair, when all these guys hit up stardom in the beginning, it’s the same stories as with ball players, they are getting beej left and right wherever they go! I still like Josh Hartnett, and wonder why he didn’t get more work. He was great in Black Hawk Down.

      LOL at Dog people!

  2. GoodCapon says:

    I remember Josh very well. I used to have a poster of him on my room :D I miss him and his gap teeth!

    His career has stagnated these past few years… or perhaps the best is yet to come for him.

  3. brin says:

    I think the more interesting item is Michael C. Hall and Jennifer Carpenter…it would be nice if they got back together. Amanda & Josh? Meh, give it a month.

  4. eyeroll says:

    He’s an asshole. He slept with Sienna miller as well, only assholes do that. Sean Penn, Daniel Crag, Balthazar Getty …..

  5. Bubbling says:

    I used to have biggest crush on him! Really hoping he isn’t d-bag, and yes they would make hot couple.

  6. Aiobhan says:

    I remember him from Sin City and really enjoyed his part in that film, small as it was. But for some reason when he was popular I used to confuse him with Ashton Kutcher. They have the Ryan G/ Ryan R. effect for me. Lets hope that they both do not have the same personality as well.

    I like Amanda’s personality but I, at best, think that she is weak, one note actress. I remember her from AMC and she still has the same doe eyed look that she had from the show. I like how her co-star from the show Micheal B. Jordan is in the number one movie in the country.

  7. Zelda says:

    Holy crap–Josh Hartnett still exists?!

  8. nina says:

    there’s something inescapably boring about both of them. Good looking but bland. I just see oatmeal looking at them together.

    And who cheats on J. Carpenter with Julia Stiles? She’s not exactly a temptress.

    • Capella says:

      Can’t mess with chemistry. That’s the problem. Both though Julia and Michael should have held back.

      Chemistry is passing, while true love is lasting.

      F-ck! I’m PMSsing rainbows and flowers again. Off to wash my momentarily goody-goody heart with some Bermuda Triangle bashing!

  9. TheOriginalVictoria says:

    Loved Josh in that movie August and as the villain in O. He made a great Iago. And since we’re memory lane tripping, remember when he was in that movie with LeeLee Sobieski and the defunct Chris Klein (OMG remember when Chris and Josh were being offered everything because they were so popular? I miss the 90s and early aughts), Here on Earth? I LOVE THAT MOVIE.

    Anywho Mandy and Josh would be hot together. But the question is would that make them more relevant? I mean he fucked around with Rihanna (total shocker there) and he still kind of stayed irrelevant.

  10. Kasey says:

    I like her alot and think she has unfortunately rubbish taste in men. I like him a lot too. He’s old enough to figure out that if he’s really into her maybe it’s worth it to develop a relationship with her prior to sexing her up and if they make it that far that’ll just be the icing on the cake.

    I’m REALLY hoping this rumor is both true and the beginning of them getting to know each other, sparks fly and finding real happiness together for as long as is possible in Hollyweird. It’d round out my top celebrity couples list to 5 with Mariah & Nick, Rachel McAdams & Michael Sheen, Kristin Bell & Dax Shepard and Jennifer Garner & Ben Affleck.

  11. Asli says:

    Amanda’s dog looks like Ryan Reynold’s dog, Baxtor. So cute!

  12. Roxy750 says:

    Weren’t they in a movie together??? Wait, that’s right!!! I get Josh and Channing mixed up all the time!

  13. Nanea says:

    Isn’t JH one of the potential candidates for being Suri Cruise’s dad?

    Katie dated him briefly after breaking up with Chris Klein and before someone jumped a couch.

    • Lise says:

      Yes. I think it is VERY possible. This means they fudged the birthdate by four months or so, which is evident if you look back at pictures. I think she was pregnant when they met and didn’t know it yet. They orchestrated the whole thing and she wore a prosthetic after birth. Sounds ridiculous but if you read up on these two it’s not very farfetched. Whoever the dad is, he got a big check and a scary confidentiality contract.

      • Lexi says:

        I know, I’ve always been suspicious of that timing ~ I can believe that Katie gave birth (maybe even at sea on their creepy Scieno Mothership) and then pillowed it for a few months ~ hence the sitting/hunching for hours on uncomfortable bleachers without having to pee at those endless soccer games/photo ops.

    • MJ says:

      Interesting theory… I always thought Suri looked a lot like Tom, mostly due to the shape of her eyes, but Josh’s eyes are very similar in shape.

  14. MJ says:

    Go on home girl, he’s a Magic Man.

    Is Dominic Cooper a jagoff? I just saw An Education last night and thought he was great in that.

    • Eve says:

      Well, he did cheat on her repeatedly (apparently)…

      He’s very good in An Education, but you should check “The Devil’s Double” — the movie itself is so so…could have been a great political drama/thriller but director Lee Tamahori went for action instead. Cooper, however, is absolutely superb playing two characters: Uday Hussein (Saddam Hussein’s psychopathic son — yes, he was *THAT* sick) and the man who claims to have been his body double (his story is probably bogus though).

  15. Jb says:

    She looks so pretty in that pink dress.

  16. Kara Ann says:

    I like Hartnett. Couldn’t care less about Amanda.
    As far as the beej in the bathroom, doesn’t mean to me that he wouldn’t like a decent girl. Just means he was young, horny, and getting it thrown at him. Not admirable behavior but doesn’t permanently paint him as a douche as far I’m concerned.

  17. Pleaseto says:

    Whatever that could happen between them is beyond our control. Let’s wish them the best.

  18. Sparkly says:

    I’m not particularly interested in either of these two, but I’ve got to admit that pictures of celebs with their pets always tends to make me like them a lot more.

  19. Ally says:

    I think Amanda Seyfried should go out with Ryan Gosling. He seems less douchey than her regular doofus diet, and their dogs would make a lovely couple.

  20. iseepinkelefants says:

    The Faculty. I used to drool over Hartnett in that movie. They even had some Levi ads or something that came out with the cast in Teen People and I had him pasted all over my binder. So hot.

    But yeah he did fall off the radar. His career drop was something really weird. He went from being hearthrob to serious actor who only does the NY scene and then bam he was gone. This was around the time he dated Scarjo. It’s werid to see him back parading himself for the paps.

    The funny thing he wasn’t always a douchehole. When he first came onto the scene he had been with his Minnesota (?) girlfriend for like 10 years. Then she apparently dumped him (broke his heart if I recall?) and he went on to douche it up with Scarho and became a modelizer.

    I totally see this pairing, Amanda has blinders when it comes to guys who treat her like crap.

    Maybe Hartnett isn’t that bad but I have feeling he’s looking for something to shoot him back into the limelight and the fact that Amanda’s kind of vacant (not in a bad way she reminds me of a really nice, yet not very bright best friend I had when I was younger) with huge boobs (he obviously has a type) probably doesn’t hurt. Win-win for him. She’ll definitely boost his profile.

  21. Taksi says:

    I miss the 90s.

    And, given her penchant for douches, I can totally see it.

    Thank you for some other informative website. The place else may I get that type of information written in such an ideal means? I have a challenge that I am just now running on, and I have been at the look out for such info.
