Josh Hartnett, serial rebound dude, is romancing Abbie Cornish

Premiere Of IFC Films' Breaking Upwards - Arrivals

Doesn’t it seem like Josh Hartnett is the go-to guy to romance a girl who has found herself newly single in Hollywood? That’s become the only thing he’s known for in the past few years, if random gossip about his sex life can be taken as gospel (why not?). At various times, he’s been associated with Sienna Miller, Mary-Kate Olsen, Mischa Barton, and Rumer Willis, amongst others. This week Josh is allegedly romancing Abbie Cornish, straight from her breakup with Ryan Phillippe. I believe it because Abbie and Josh have allegedly been hooking up for the better part of a month, and this latest report is just one of many:

Film Set: The Dark Fields

New couple alert?

Josh Hartnett and Abbie Cornish spent Saturday night together at bar in New York, tucked into a corner booth for hours before leaving together around 1 am.

Cornish, who split from longtime boyfriend Ryan Phillippe in February, has been in New York filming ‘The Dark Fields’ with Bradley Cooper.

Hartnett lives in New York and hasn’t made many movies recently.

The pair were together at Warren 77, a bar co-owned by New York Ranger Sean Avery, at 10 pm. Cornish wore her hair in a low ponytail and was dressed in black. Hartnett, still mustached, had on a gray hat and glasses.

After talking for awhile by the bar, Huffington Post watched as the pair retired to a back corner table, where they stayed till 1 am, when they left together.

Yes, after taking a two year break from acting, Josh has one film in post-production (Bunraku), and one in production currently (Gunslinger). I had high hopes for Josh, just because I thought he was one of those still-waters-run-deep dudes who just seem sort of hot and vague. He’s made a few good movies (Sin City, Black Hawk Down) and I was hoping that he would end up finding some stellar role that would make him break out from the “hot but vague dude” vibe, like Heath Ledger did in Brokeback Mountain. Would a relationship with Abbie Cornish help him or hurt him? Eh. She’s known as a good actress, so maybe it would help. Hope against hope.

    I liked Josh in Lucky Number Slevin, and was excellent in his play “Rain Man” in London
    I saw him in person and is very handsome and friendly signing autographs outside the stage door of the Apollo Theatre

  2. Ann says:

    That’s not true. He never romanced any of those. Love him xoxoxoxo

  3. Nanea says:

    He’s also been associated with Katie Holmes at a particular time, just sayin’

  4. Iggles says:

    He’s hot! But, yea forgettable so far. He’s definitely on par with Ledger, circa “First Knight” days. They were on the same level then Heath skyrocketed after Brokeback.

    Hmm, I could totally see Josh cast in that movie, however I love Heath’s subtle performance.

  5. coucou says:

    It seems the only thoughts my brain can conjure up at the sight of Josh can be summed up in one word : YUM.

  6. danielle says:

    Huh – I do not find him hot at all.

  7. jc126 says:

    He should be romancing me! Love him.

  8. lys says:

    see the movie “August”,his arrogant character in this movie was amazing incredible perfomance, Josh has talent

    Ok ,remember that SITC episode when Charlotte “dated” the guy that was known as the pu#@y man. Because that was all he wanted to do with woman. When I look at Josh constantly sucking on his lips, well…

  10. Mistral says:

    In terms of rebounds, did he briefly “date” Rihanna before or after Chris Brown?

    Also, as I recall (and I could be recalling wrong :)), he dated Michelle Williams when the made Halloween H2O, and he think he dated Giselle for quite a while before she hooked up with Leo.

  11. Charlie Dia says:

    He’s wonderfully cute and I found him way charming in Lucky Number Slevin all fast-talking and clever with hair product and abs and Lucy Liu. I kind of dig that he went the theater route in a foreign country, though. It might speak of a long-lasting slow burn thing.

    Or not.

    I checked his birthdate. He’s a Cancer. No wonder he’s the serial rebound guy! He’s so hot. Can we see more of him, please? Thanks.

  13. Aitch says:

    He also dated ScarJo for a while. I don’t know if she was on the rebound at the time.

    Josh is the bestnow, at present.
