Новое огромное интервью "Каминг-суну". Приурочено к выходу на экраны "Воскрешая чемпиона" (в США с 24 августа).
Джош говорит, что изначально в "ВЧ" должен был играть не Сэмуэл Джексон, а Морган Фриман, а в "СЧС", наоборот, не Фриман, а Джексон. Сценарий "ВЧ" тоже претерпел изменения, в нём стало больше об отношениях отцов и сыновей.
Снимали его аж прошлым летом, в течение 36 дней (6 недель), без навороченных спецэффектов.
Много говорит про журналистику и журналистов.
Некоторые сцены были сняты без участия ребенка, т.к. он быстро уставал, начинал скучать, или бегал и дурачился и не хотел повторять реплики, и кто-то другой произносил их Джошу. Джош про свою роль молодого отца говорит, что вообще играл так, как написано в сценарии, т.к. опыта у него нет (естественно), и он играет дружелюбного папу, у которого в общем-то нет примера того,как должен вести себя отец, т.к. у него были проблемы со своим отцом, и он типа делает много неправильно, но его можно понять.
Джош говорит, что после съёмок в Гонг-Конге планирует сам снимать фильм и быть режиссёром. Не знаю, говорит, как получится, это первый раз.
Джош в Гонг-Конге первый раз.

Exclusive: Actor Josh Hartnett
Source: Edward Douglas August 13, 2007
For a long time, actor Josh Hartnett has had this love-him or hate-him thing going on with moviegoers--just mention Hartnett's name to anyone you know if you don't believe us--but in the last few years, you have to give the guy props for taking chances with more varied roles like in last year's Lucky Number Slevin and Brian De Palma's The Black Dahlia. He continues this progression in his maturing career with Rod Lurie's new drama Resurrecting the Champ, a movie in which Hartnett plays sports reporter Erik Kernan, who gets a huge career break when he discovers that a homeless man, played by Samuel L. Jackson, is actually a long-lost boxing champion. Although Hartnett's part might seem at first like a secondary role, it's actually one that allows Hartnett to give one of the strongest performances of his career, playing a man trying to live up to his father's reputation while connecting with his young son and getting the boy to look up to him.

The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this past January already with indie distributor The Yari Group in place to release it, but ComingSoon spoke to Hartnett during a day doing press before heading to Hong Kong. (More on that below.) Is this one of those projects that's been floating around for a long time?
Josh Hartnett: Yeah, actually Rod came to me to be in the film about four years ago, and it was supposed to be me and Morgan Freeman originally, which is funny, because Sam Jackson was supposed to be in "Lucky Number Slevin" then he dropped out and Morgan came in. This is years ago, and it was a different script altogether. It was someone else's script and then Rod has for the last few years been rewriting it and rewriting it and developed it into this story, which is more specifically about fathers and sons than it was about the actual article.

CS: So would you say that having four more years might have been good for you to mature a bit and do a few other things?
Hartnett: Yeah, the character got older, too. Erik was supposed to be 26 years old and now he's 30 or close to 30, 29, somewhere in there.

CS: Obviously, the script was changing when you came on board, but had Rod already been on board those four years ago?
Hartnett: I wasn't on board actually. We thought about doing it and then it went away for a while. I think Rod wanted to develop it with someone else for a while and then he came back to me last year. I'd been working on other things. They had finished the script. He had been developing it and it changed a lot from the initial draft to this draft, but the script was pretty well intact when we started shooting. We shot it last summer.

CS: What was the main appeal about the project or the character that made you want to do it finally?
Hartnett: I thought it was a good story, which you rarely find in films. There's always a gimmick and I think that this film is just a solid dramatic story. It seemed clear to me that it felt like something that could really happen and about real people, and it had an element of sensationalism, as all stories must, but it wasn't unrealistic, and I dunno, I was just charmed by it.

CS: Your ex-wife (played by Kathryn Morris) is quite a bit older than you in the movie, though.
Hartnett: Yeah, she is. She was a grad student or a T.A. when I was a freshman and she was doing what you're not supposed to do, sleep with the students.

CS: And not using protection when doing so…
Hartnett: Yeah (laughs)… so many things wrong with this scenario.

CS: I know the original idea was based on J.R. Moehringer's acclaimed L.A. Times article. Was it just about a homeless man who claimed to be a boxer or were other parts of the movie based on that feature story?
Hartnett: Yeah, you should really read the article. You can get it online, and it's a relatively quick read. J. R. caught it though just at the last minute before they went to print and then the rewritten article became what is "Resurrecting the Champ" which is the big famous article.

CS: Are you a boxing fan yourself and were you into that aspect of the story?
Hartnett: Well, because when I was doing "Black Dahlia", I had to box, so I spent a lot of time in the gym for that. Was training with a couple different trainers for seven months, which is overkill for that role, but once I started, I thought that was interesting and I kept on, so yeah, it kind of coincided. Now, I'm more of a boxing fan than I think I've ever been.

CS: Did you meet with any sports reporters to prepare for the movie?
Hartnett: Yeah, I met J.R. of course and hung out with him. Being in the journalism world for a little bit and meeting people in the journalism world, it became more apparent to me why… Because I always had trouble with interviews and things, like people trying to get things out of me that I'm not so sure I want to talk about, but I understand the mechanism that's at work there. I understand the way… it's high-pressure. It's a difficult industry, and I of course knew that intellectually, but to be able to see it first-hand and to be able to talk to people that are involved on the opposing team in a way. (laughs)

CS: It's interesting that you mention that, because while here at, we're trying to talk to people about their movies, there are many reporters who just want to know about the people's personal lives. Do you have any opinions about that?
Hartnett: Well, it seems like a lot of journalism is going the way of entertainment anyway, and you know what? You saw "Citizen Kane." Way back when, they were talking about it, and it's always been moving in that direction. It's like you have to keep people interested, and that's the fine line that we ride as well in the film business. What is fact and what is fiction and is it really important to be completely factual if it's going to be dry and nobody's going to want to see it. It's that sort of thing but journalistic integrity I think, because in this day and age, so many people can go read blogs and read people's opinions all the time, that it's kind of important that newspapers and online newspapers and things that are supposed to have factual reputation, stick to that so that there's a clear definition between news and opinion.

CS: Did you get involved in the world of Showtime Boxing at all for that scene in the movie?
Hartnett: Yeah, I didn't even get a chance to meet those guys. When we filmed it, we were actually in Calgary, kind of a ways away from all the boxing hoopla in Vegas, but for the most part, that's such a small section.

CS: Was the movie done fairly independently? It looks like it could be a big studio movie.
Hartnett: Yeah, Adam Kane the DP did a great job. There wasn't a lot of money and there wasn't a lot of time. We shot in 36 days, six days a week in six weeks. We were in and out, and in that amount, to make a film look this good… There weren't a lot of huge specialty shots. It was just about making a world that was believable and also elegantly lit, but there weren't those big sweeping camera moves that take the whole day to set-up. It was relatively simple.

CS: Well, the newsroom scenes look like they could have been involved.
Hartnett: Yeah, they just had tracks set up everywhere and they just dropped the dolly on one of them and tracked around.

CS: You do a lot of scenes with Sam Jackson, whose character has a very big personality, so were there moments where you felt like his straight man and just had to let him do his thing?
Hartnett: Well, you know, Sam's going to do his thing whether or not anybody lets him do it. He knows what he wants and he knows how to go about creating what he wants to create, so I have a tremendous respect for Sam as an actor. I think that he really killed it in this movie, but he works in a completely different way than I think I do. From what I can tell, he kind of works from the outside in. He puts on the make-up, puts on the clothes, gets the walk, gets the voice, and then the character kind of comes from there. It's a different type of acting. For me, it's a big emotional whatever that all comes from inside.

CS: What about working opposite some of the other actors? I thought your scenes with the kid playing your son were amazing. How are you able to get what you need out of someone like that who's never acted to get what you need out of yourself?
Hartnett: You know, honestly, acting in film is remarkably independent. You're doing your thing and someone else is doing their thing. With some of the scenes with the kid, he wasn't even there, because he was bouncing around and he didn't want to pay attention and have to say his lines again, so he'd go away and someone would read the lines off-camera and I would look at them.

CS: That's pretty amazing, because when you see those scenes with the kid, I would think you would be affected by the look in the kid's eyes as the audience is.
Hartnett: Yeah, well sometimes, we got some really good time… but he was a kid, so the whole time I'd be playing with him and trying to keep him interested. He would be interested and he was a good little actor, but there were moments where it was just like a really emotional scene for me, and he started to get bored, and I'd be like, "Don't worry about it. Go run around as long as you can give your side." We didn't want him to get stale.

CS: Is this the first time you've worked with kids on film?
Hartnett: I've never worked with a kid in this capacity, no, this was the first time.

CS: I don't know where Rod found him, but he was pretty impressive.
Hartnett: He was up in Toronto I think. I think he'd done a few things before but he started to become an actor.

CS: How did you get into that head of playing a father since you don't have any kids yourself? Do you have nephews?
Hartnett: I'm actually a lot older than my siblings. I'm the oldest and I grew up with some knowledge of that. I have a lot of friends with kids now and watched the way that they sink into that role. Some of them want to be a best friend to their sons, some of them want to be the disciplinarian. I just figured that this guy, I just played him as it was obviously written, which was sort of as a friendly type. He's trying to garner as much affection from his kid, like hero worship, and he's doing it in a messed-up way. I played Erik like he's a young guy who hasn't thought everything through yet, that he's just being chased by the ghost of his father. He doesn't really know how to interact with his own son, because he never had that interaction from the opposite perspective, so he's making a lot of bad choices, but they're understandable.

CS: It seems at times like your character is overcompensating (in a good way) to try to keep his family together rather than having the same thing happen that happened with his father.
Hartnett: Yeah, yeah, sort of, because he's trying to keep everything together but he's also taking all these shortcuts really. He's not putting in long hours.

CS: For a while, you were doing all these big movies--"Black Hawk Down", "Pearl Harbor"--but you seem to have settled into more character-driven dramas between this and "Black Dahlia." Do you miss doing those huge epics?
Hartnett: No, well I just did this movie "30 Days of Night" which is a little bit more of the action stuff. I like movies about people and movies with characters, that's what I'm drawn to as a person who likes to create these characters within the story, but I like it all really. If I could switch from place to place and do all sorts of different things. I've been really lucky, and I think the big thing with this is that I really wanted to prove to myself and to a lot of people that this is something that I can do, that it's not really about running and screaming.

CS: Well, that's the thing, because when you're in a big blockbuster, the actor ends up taking a backseat to the set pieces and the director's vision.
Hartnett: It does. Yeah, yeah, the explosions are the drama.

CS: With that in mind, why did you want to do "30 Days of Night," which is really a full-on horror/genre type movie?
Hartnett: Well, because it's a vampire movie, because I think vampire movies are incredible, and I've always been fascinated with it. I read the comic book and loved it, and it's not like it's all just running and screaming. It's quite a difficult character piece, because it's all about trying to find your way and to get into a headspace where you can actually sacrifice yourself or someone you love. It was a good dramatic movie actually when it comes down to it, because there were so many scenes of people sitting in a room, huddling and starting to lose it because they've been hiding for so long. It was good. I liked it a lot and had a great time.

(You can read more with Hartnett on "30 Days of Night" at

CS: What else are you working on now?
Hartnett: We shot that last fall and this spring I shot a movie called "August" which I produced as well. It's Amy Harris, Adam Scott, Rip Torn. David Bowie's in it, and it's a little New York film again about real people, so a small film that I produced.

CS: Is producing something you're trying to get more into these days?
Hartnett: Yeah, I'm actually a producer on "Resurrecting the Champ" as well. Really what it comes down to is just wanting to have a little bit more control over the finished product. If you really don't like the way something is going, being able to speak up and be heard. It seemed like the logical next step, but I dunno, as far as the actual job of producing day-in and day-out, I don't think I could handle it. It's too much logistics.

CS: So in this case, were you there in the script meetings and providing notes and all that?
Hartnett: Yeah, yeah. I do that a lot, like in "30 Days of Night," we rewrote the whole thing before we went in, and the same thing on "August." We spent a lot of time talking about the script. For me, depending on what the genre and the type of film it is, it's always great to put your two cents in, if the director's open to it, because this is still a director's medium obviously.

CS: We talked a bit about the big movies vs. the more dramatic things. When you go to the movies yourself, do you have a preference whether you see blockbusters or smaller indie fare?
Hartnett: Well, if there's an element that's really interesting to me and new, like if a big blockbuster really satisfies, of course, but I wouldn't just go see all the big movies because they're big movies, like I usually hear from people that I trust whether they're interesting or not. I'm not dogmatic about any of this. I'll go to the (Landmark) Sunshine and see something there, then I'll go up to Union Square and see something big there, so it doesn't really matter. It's just kind of whether I think the movie is going to be interesting.

CS: Are you able to watch movies without being jaded about what goes on behind the scenes and knowing how they do things?
Hartnett: Yeah, you know I watch it with an eye like I'm kind of dissecting it, but I still enjoy watching it. It's just evolved from this purely visceral experience to something a little bit more intellectual.

CS: Are you watching them with thoughts of possibly directing something in the future?
Hartnett: Well, I'm directing a short film when I get back from Hong Kong. I just wrote the script and I'm probably just going to direct a couple of shorts and we'll see eventually if a story comes along, maybe I'll try and direct a film. I don't even know if I'm going to be good or not. This will be my first test.

CS: What are you doing in Hong Kong?
Hartnett: I'm doing this movie called "I Come with the Rain." It's a Tran Anh Hung film, you know who he is? He did "The Scent of Green Papaya" and "Cyclo" and "Vertical Ray of the Sun." He's a genius. He's one of the most poetic filmmakers out there, so we're going to go and shoot this little film in Hong Kong that I play an American in Hong Kong with 2/3rds English, one third Cantonese, and it's just going to be a wild, different kind of film. It's actually a French production.

CS: Have you ever been there before?
Hartnett: No, I've never been there, no.

CS: Really? Not even with the premieres of some of your bigger movies?
Hartnett: Actually, China's never been that big a market for American films. They get there, and in Hong Kong they obviously show a lot more but in mainland China, they don't show a ton of American movies. It's kind of an emerging market for American cinema.

Resurrecting the Champ opens nationwide on August 24, but check back next week for a very interesting interview with the film's director, Rod Lurie.

Не, просто продюсер, фильма "Август" (который никак не выйдет на экраны), и также "Воскрешая..." (который скоро запустят) Для продюсерства кинокомпаний у него, пожалуй, тяму не хватит  :) хотя быть продюсером фильмов - тоже очень большой шаг вперёд!  !04!

да, запарили они этой своей расовой тактикой. вон один афроамериканец подал в суд на создателей Бондианы за то что они не рассмотрели его кандидатуру на роль Бонда :) с таким усепехом через лет 20 Бонд может стать женщиной или голубым или трансвеститом :) чтобы всем было спокойно :)

не, на самом деле у Джоша есть какая-то кинокомпания, или студия, которую он основал со своим товарищем, с которым в "О" снимался (и замочил его там, ггг). он там какое-то шоу или телефильм тоже продюсировал еще одного своего товарища. это все в новостях было, в фильмах есть топик этого телефильма и в биографии тоже что-то было...


а, вот об этом шоу, которое Джош продюсирует - Ham Lake - Новое Бродвейское шоу Сэма Розена

Фриман - это удивительный пример, как совершенно некрасивый чёрный мужчина может стать очень популярным и востребованным.  :D Но харизма у него мощная. Он мне в фильме "Семь" понравился. Джексон такого же плана. Ну не красавец совсем! Вашингтон - это тот, что в фильме про акул-мутантов кока играл?..  :blink:

Я протестую. Пусть играет!!!!!!

а мне его внешность (Джексона в смысле) нравится... интересная. а Фриман актер хороший но мне его роли в Бетман:начало и Малышка на миллион не нравятся. за что ему только Оскара там дали... (за Малышку в смысле). Вашингтон ВОТ. Не знаю про акул-мутантов, но он мне очень нравится в Гневе

кстати, видеоинтервью Джоша перенесено в раздел Даунлоад!


Поняла, кто Вашингтон. Ну, ничего так, приятный даденька с грустными глазами. В акулах-мутантах другой играл. Кстати, я нашла, фильм про акул назывался "Глубокое синее море", там же играл и Сэмюэль Джексон, его там акула слопала  :D Кто играл кока - не поняла, но такой, забавный.


Josh Hartnett learns to hone his sense of direction
Movie Critic
Article Last Updated: 08/22/2007 12:13:11 PM CDT

For Josh Hartnett, making "Resurrecting the Champ," which opens Friday, was a walk in the park. Literally.

Hartnett plays a reporter in the film, which is based on the experiences of writer J.R. Moehringer, a Pulitzer Prize winner for the L.A. Times who also wrote the memoir "The Tender Bar." When Hartnett and the rest of the cast assembled in Calgary to shoot "Resurrecting," which also stars Samuel L. Jackson as a homeless ex-boxer, writer/director Rod Lurie made them watch "Kramer vs. Kramer."

"Rod wanted everyone to see it before we started. He is a huge fan of '70s and '80s movies - I think 'All the President's Men' is his favorite of all time - and he felt 'Kramer vs. Kramer' had an emotional likeness to our film," says Hartnett. "They both have to do with fathers and young sons and all that."

After the film, Hartnett and Kathryn Morris, who plays his estranged wife, decided to take a walk. That's where the park comes in.

"We got on this bridge in this park that was across the street from our hotel, and we become so engrossed in our conversation about our characters' history that we started to debate: about how they first met, was it an accident that they had a kid, why they grew apart. It got really heated, and we took opposing sides on a lot of things. But we solidified all these background facts between us, and it felt really good, really safe."
Lurie encouraged that sort of thing. "When he gave me the script, he said, 'Right now, I know the character better than you, but I expect by the time we shoot, you'll know him better than me.' That was an empowering place to be."
To get to that know-him-better place, Hartnett spent time with Moehringer, read his work and sucked back beverages at the Manhasset, N.Y., bar where much of "The Tender Bar" is set, chatting with folks who knew Moehringer when he was a kid.

"At the same time," says Hartnett, a St. Paul native, "a lot of the character is different than he is, since the story is fictionalized. I also took examples from a friend who has kids, since J.R. doesn't have kids. He's a kid himself, really. I had a good time trying to figure out who he was."

Hartnett says he discovered that he and Moehringer are very different.

He likes that in directors, too.

"When I'm looking at a project, I spend very little time figuring out if I want to hang out with him for three months or be friends. I don't want to just work with people who are like me," says Hartnett. "You can get a sense of someone pretty quickly if you're in the room with them. With Rod, he talked a lot about the father and son in this script, and that really rang true to me. He could also have talked about it being a journalistic-integrity film, or about the relationship between the husband and wife, or the socioeconomic theme about the homelesss or what happens to boxers late in life. All these different films are in this story, but he focused on what I thought was the heart of it, too."

Those meetings with directors have become crucial for Hartnett, who says he made mistakes early in his career, not realizing how much power he could have to get movies made with the right directors at the helm. Now, he knows.

"Directors are the driving force behind what I choose these days. It is their world," says Hartnett, who has recently worked with Brian De Palma ("The Black Orchid"), Robert Rodriguez and Quentin Tarantino (Tarantino labored on Hartnett's portion of "Sin City") and David Slade (the upcoming "30 Days of Night"). Hartnett notes ruefully that the studio made De Palma cut huge sections of "The Black Orchid" but says having faith in a director is still the way to go for him.

"If he shoots a certain type of film, it's very hard for a studio to make it into something else. So these days, I just try to choose directors who have a complete vision," says Hartnett, back in the interview after a brief delay when his cell phone battery conked out. "I'm not interested in genres or whether a movie will make money - although it would be nice if it did - but it's about whether this person can make a good movie."

Hartnett's getting more involved in the overall picture these days, having co-produced his upcoming film "August," a melodrama in which he says he plays his angriest character, and last year's underrated "Lucky Number Slevin." It's not a power play, he says, but an attempt to find new directors who are in a class with his favorites: David Lean (Hartnett's a "Dr. Zhivago" fan), Hal Ashby ("Shampoo") and Federico Fellini (Hartnett says he has seen "8½" 100 times).

"I just really want the opportunity to help foster talented people," says Hartnett. "I'm not interested in holding my belief system over the director. I believe in the director as the auteur, and all my favorite films come from directors with singular visions. If you trust him to go with it, I think more interesting films will result. And I want to be in those interesting films."


В  интервью,если оно достоверное, и если я правильно поняла, говорится что Джош пользуется компьютером и интернетом :)  может и к нам зайдет на огонек :D :

Josh Hartnett, actor
Rosanna Greenstreet
Saturday November 10, 2007

When were you happiest?
Running around when I was a kid was a really happy time; a time when getting home for dinner or for sleep were my only responsibilities.

What is your greatest fear?
Becoming a pessimist.

What is your earliest memory?
When I was two, some boiling water spilt on my left side and I had to go to hospital. I remember the nurse bringing me a green lollipop.

Which living person do you most admire, and why?
Jimmy Carter, because he was too good to win a second term as president of the US. He wasn't looking after his job as much as he was looking after the people, which is what public service should be all about.

What is the trait you most deplore in yourself?

Aside from a property, what's the most expensive thing you've bought?
I spent my entire first pay cheque from Cracker, a TV show on ABC, on an Audi because my other car broke down and I needed to get to work.

What is your most treasured possession?
Right now, my computer because it keeps me in touch with everybody back home. I'm in Hong Kong shooting a movie called I Come With The Rain.

Staying out all night, not sleeping and going to work the next day. It happens only once in a blue moon.

What makes you depressed?
Spending too much time alone.

What do you most dislike about your appearance?
Enormous thighs that are good for running fast, but very difficult to fit in a pair of jeans.

Josh Hartnett: Independent Heartthrob

If you don't see that many paparazzi pics of hot number Josh Hartnett it's because he avoids the Hollywood scene and hangs out in his native Minnesota between movies. Not that fond of the tinseltown game, the cute young actor is soft-spoken and shyly friendly during interviews and, when we sat down with him in Beverly Hills' 4 Seasons hotel this week, he was willing to talk about his decision to make some important indie films rather than hop on the big budget popcorn movie merry-go-round after Pearl Harbor and his cop comedy Hollywood Homicide.

Now starring as the romantic lead in the romance drama Wicker Park, Josh spilled plenty to us about his costars, who later went on to co-star in Troy, Diane Kruger (she's the one whose "face launched a thousand ships") and Rose Byrne (the temple priestess who gets it on with Brad Pitt). Josh was forthcoming with his opinions about love, obsession and relationships, how he doesn't play the Hollywood game, his new projects, watching actresses go nutz over Coldplay and, listen up girls... what he wants in a woman.

Picture weekend scruffy; gray cap with ratty brim, gray tee, gray jeans, a new growth of facial hair, little goatee, his glasses dangling from the neck of his t-shirt. Josh does have that unibrow look which he refuses to have plucked after a painful earlier experience. Pull up a chair...

TeenHollywood: Why did you decide to do such a highly emotional story?

Josh: I thought it would be fun. This is more where I was at. The comedy thing was a huge challenge for me. I'm not a comedic kind of guy so this is going back to what I went to school for, which is the emotional side of acting and digging from within. I was sick of all the big budget kind of crap that was coming out. I wanted to do something a bit different and something that I felt for personally. I'm moving in that direction. I'm not doing anything big budget for a while. I'm doing 4 independent films back to back right now.

TeenHollywood:  Did you see the French movie this is based on (L'Appartement)?

Josh: Absolutely. That was a lot of the reason I wanted to do this. I liked that movie a lot. It's a good film. It has a cool energy. It's a different type of film. I haven't seen a movie like that made in the U.S. for a long time. I wanted, hopefully, to bring a new flavor back into the movie theaters.

TeenHollywood:  Wicker Park is about obsessive love. What is the craziest thing you've done for love? Have you been obsessed like your character?

Josh: I've done a lot of crazy things for love. If you ever look back at letters you've written or videotapes you've made for someone you were in love with it's repulsive! You think what an idiot I was. That's the great thing about it. That's the fun of it. Love is ever changing. I admire Matt (his character) because giving up everything for love takes a lot of guts. It's the most important thing because relationships change constantly. When you've seen enough movies or done enough traveling they lose their luster, but relationships never get old. I think that's what life is all about. I think love and obsession are walking pretty much the same line. If love is what we call true love, it's just when obsession is requited. So, yeah. I think I've been there.

TeenHollywood:  Have you ever walked away from a relationship and realized it was a mistake?

Josh: I try to be very careful about walking away. If we are really keeping each other from leading a good life, then yes, but otherwise I don't think there is a good reason to walk away. I've been in situations where I'm with someone who is a terrific human being, but they are unable to show it because they are so jealous of the women I am working with. It can ruin a relationship to be long distance to begin with, then seeing their significant other in the arms of someone like Diane Kruger or Rose Byrne, it's difficult to set that aside and say it's just work. You are off on location with this person for many months and you think what might happen and it destroys you. I don't want to that happen to anybody I really love.

TeenHollywood:  What qualities does a woman need to have to date or be with you?

Josh: If I'm lucky enough that they like me, I like a woman who is true to herself, is what she is with no qualms. A person who is strong enough to be who they are. That's the most important thing to me. You meet a lot of actresses in life. Like I don't think Diane and Rose are actresses in life, I think they are just good actresses on screen. They get all that out on the screen. They seem to be really normal. They have real personalities of their own and they stick to them. They like who they are. That confidence is incredibly attractive to me.

TeenHollywood:  Do you find it hard to find people like that in Hollywood?

Josh: I don't live here and I don't spend much time here. I've taken multiple big steps back away from the business in the last few years. After I finished Blackhawk Down I took 13 months off and didn't do anything. I got my life back together. I got my head back on my shoulders. I think that's very important.

TeenHollywood:  So what do you do all isolated in Minnesota?

Josh: I pay attention to my art. I like to paint, and make music and act. I also like movies, good movies, but they are few and far between. It's difficult to get a good one together. I work on what I'm working on. I don't pay attention to what else is going on in Hollywood.

TeenHollywood:  Do you get recognized less in Minnesota?

Josh: No, but people give me a break because they know I am from there and I live there. They try to make it comfortable for me. I know a lot of people there and it's home.

TeenHollywood:  You mentioned music who are some of your favorites?

Josh: I listen to a lot of Jazz and I went to the Newport Jazz festival with my two brothers who play jazz and my father. We got to see Herbie Hancock and Wayne Shorter and Brian Blade play in a band together. I listen to a lot of Coltrane and Mingus. Mingus is my favorite right now, and obviously Miles Davis because he was a genius. I listen to a lot of punk, The Ramones, The Yeah Yeah Yeahs, the Strokes, White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, and Modest Mouse. I listen to rap too, like Mos Def and The Roots. I like good music. I listen to Beethoven's 9th all the time.

TeenHollywood:  Do you play an instrument?

Josh: I try, but I'm terrible. I play a bit of guitar and my little brother is teaching me piano right now. He is a musical genius. My father, who played music all his life, says he is the best natural musician he has ever worked with. My father played with Al Green. Joe (Josh's brother) is a monster. He taught himself 8 different interests in 2 years. He got himself accepted to Berkeley School of music based on a tape when he was 14, but they realized he was 4 years too young. He's a genius.

TeenHollywood:  How did you prepare for the Wicker Park role?

Josh: I didn't have a lot of time. I was shooting Hollywood Homicide at the time so they rushed to get that one out and this one took a little bit longer. I had about three days to really work on the character which really didn't, which really pisses me off because I like to have a lot of time. Now, I'm about to start another one and I'm going to take a lot of time getting into him next.

TeenHollywood:  Is the facial hair for the movie?

Josh: We'll see. I'm just testing it out.

TeenHollywood:  Any funny stories from the set of "Wicker"?

Josh: You know Coldplay is in the movie and we went to one of their concerts. I went with Diane (Kruger) and Rose (Byrne) and a couple of the people on the set and I've never seen two beautiful girls fall all over themselves as much. They had to lift their jaws up off the floor and put their tongues back in their mouths. When he (Chris Martin) came out on the stage � actually Kirsten Dunst was there too. They went nuts.

TeenHollywood:  Don't girls do that around you?

Josh: Not these two (Diane and Rose). They didn't seem nervous at all. The thing that was cool about working with Diane was we had some immediate chemistry and we didn't really meet each other until right before we started filming. She auditioned on a tape and I didn't get a chance to really meet her in person but I'd met Rose because she came in and auditioned in L.A. Rose and I got along swimmingly from the beginning too. Just good, solid friendships were formed on that cast.

TeenHollywood:  In real life you are the object of obsession. How do you handle that?

Josh: I don't know. I try not to think of it as any obsession over me. It's obsession over the place that I hold right now and the celebrity obsession that a lot of people seem to have. For me, I don't really take it that personally I guess.

TeenHollywood:  Why do people put celebrities on a pedestal?

Josh: I think it's because you get to know them a little bit in their work and they're involved in romantic or exciting or historical events. They seem to be living fabulous lives and you seem to get a piece of them when you watch one of their movies and it's just a proximity without really getting a piece of them. We just have a celebrity-obsessed culture. We used to idolize our royalty or politicians, people still do but it's a common factor I guess. Everybody knows the same person.

TeenHollywood:  Diane and Rose ended up on Troy together...weird.

Josh: Yeah. They are so different, but they play so well off each other. They've done two movies together now, but we cast them first. They did this movie then went right into Troy after that. They both auditioned for Troy while they were making this movie and they both got it. That's great for their careers. We were going to release this movie last winter, but the music wasn't finished yet and it's not really a summer film so we had to wait for the fall.

TeenHollywood:  We know you and Diane hit it off. How about Rose?

Josh: She's awesome. She was the first person cast after me. She's an incredible actress. The only way I knew she was Australian was through her Bio. She came in with an American accent and held it through the last day of shooting. On the last day, she let it go and everyone who didn't know she was Australian on the crew just flipped out!

TeenHollywood: Some of this was shot in Chicago (where Wicker Park really is). Do you have any Chicago memories?

Josh: Yeah. My buddies and I used to go down and watch baseball games down there every once in a while, go to Wrigley Field to watch the Twins beat up on the White Sox. I've been there quite a few times. I went down there (from Minnesota) when I auditioned for the school that I went to. I was barely 17 years old. It was one of the first times that I got to travel on my own. That was a blast. The Wicker Park area is this unchanging village-esque area. I like it a lot. It's different in that a lot of this was shot in Montreal but it's got a very cool vibe. But this movie isn't really about the area. It's about four people.

TeenHollywood:  What does this movie say about love?

Josh: Love and obsession are really closely linked.

TeenHollywood:  How do you define the difference?

Josh: (grins) Well, if somebody is loving you back, that's love and if I'm obsessing over somebody, that's obsession.

TeenHollywood: Some internet story said you saved some girl in Malibu. True?

Josh: I do spend a little time out there. I've gone hiking out there but I've never rescued anybody. I almost needed rescuing. I almost got bit by a little pygmy rattlesnake.

TeenHollywood:  Did you go into this career knowing you would be such an object of fan madness?

Josh: It's just part of the job. If I resented it, I would be stupid. I think, at first it was kind of frightening but I had to find a way to deal with it, to come to terms with reality. It's a part of our business.

TeenHollywood:  Have you had a strange fan encounter?

Josh: I have had some strange encounters. I find the adoration or anger that's pushed in my direction a little odd because it doesn't have anything to do with my personal life. You find that people have a very strong reaction to what you do on screen and sometimes can't differentiate between your screen persona and who you are in real life. I find that a little bit frightening.

Josh: My dad gives me some of the best advice. I have some very intelligent friends and we give each other great advice. There are a lot of people I admire. I read a lot of scripts, which actually broaden my world.

TeenHollywood:  You look pretty buff. Where do sports fit into your life?

Josh: I'm boxing now for this movie called Black Dalia. I was boxing every day for about five months and then the movie got pushed back so I decided to go drink and eat a lot and get over it for a second. I'm doing this movie called Lucky Slevin in between. It's about these two New York gangs who live across from each other. They used to be partners, but now they are enemies and no one has left after 20 years. This young guy gets involved in it they think he owes them each money, but it's a case of mistaken identity. I was supposed to shoot Black Dalia this summer. I played hockey for a couple of months once and it didn't quite take. I played basketball and, when I got a little bit older, I swam.

TeenHollywood:  Are you a boxing fan?

Josh: I am now. I really didn't understand what the allure was before. I thought it was kind of cool to see someone who could box but I never really got into it and then, when I started to get in the ring and realize was a chess match it is, it's amazing to watch now. I really like Bernard Hopkins. I think he's the best boxer going now.

TeenHollywood: What teams do you follow? Still your home Minnesota teams?

Josh: Yeah. I'm excited about the Lakers falling apart. It's gonna be great. T-wolves could be really good this year. I heard some grumblings about a big trade coming up.

TeenHollywood:  Do you have your own obsessions in life?

Josh: Yeah. Food and sleep. I'm kidding. Well, food, yeah, actually. Food is quite an obsession. But, at a certain point love is the biggest thing. Your relationships are ever changing and they're always interesting. They always keep you entertained and keep you thinking. Food, once you've had enough good meals, it just becomes food but it's still tasty and scrumptious.

TeenHollywood: Talk about your upcoming projects. What is Mozart and the Whale?

Josh: It's a movie about an autistic man and it's a true story about him finding his wife. He was a very famous autistic. He has Asperger's (syndrome) and he speaks around the country and has helped organize a lot of groups because people with Asperger's and autism always feel like outsiders so for them to have all these friends that they meet with is a good deal. It was a script that, when I read it I thought maybe I had Asperger's because I felt such a relationship to the character's plights. It's just a genuinely beautiful film. This guy is so incredible. He's one of the funniest, smartest guys I know. They say Einstein had Aspergers. They say Mozart has Aspergers. All these true geniuses in our lives and history have had this disorder and, unfortunately, there haven't been movies from this perspective. The only one was Rainman in English and there were a couple of French movies like Betty Blue but this is the first one from the perspective of an autistic person in English.

TeenHollywood:  What else are you doing?

Josh: I'm doing something based on a Hunter Thompson book called "The Rum Diary". I'm getting to work with Sam Jackson and Benicio Del Toro and Nick Nolte, Johnny Depp, Ben Kingsley. I couldn't ask for a better position to be in. I'm being paid for doing things I love. I'm not doing huge movies, but that was never my intention in the first place and I finally realized that.

TeenHollywood:  When you were doing things like Pearl Harbor did you feel like your career was spinning out of control?

Josh: I didn't realize it would be such a monster. When you start to be seen as a commodity then the pressure to keep that up is just insane. I don't blame any of these young actors who go along and play these heartthrob roles all the time. I know many of them and they are good people. It's hard to convince the people around you that you don't want to do that anymore. They all thought it was going to put their kids through college.

TeenHollywood:  Can you talk about your proudest moment as an actor and an athlete?

Josh: I know I'm continuing to grow and, as time goes on, I think I'm only going to get better. I'm just finding myself as a actor now and I think that "Mozart" was my best. Hopefully "Slevin" will be better and hopefully Black Dalia will be better than that and I'll just keep going. As an athlete, any time I can beat anybody in a one-on-one basketball game, I feel like I just conquered the world.

TeenHollywood:  Who was the last person you beat?

Josh: Nobody famous. I like to beat up on my friends. I got to go to a basketball training camp when I was getting ready for "O" so I got pretty good working with trainers and came back and surprised my friends but now I'm boxing so much that I can't shoot anymore because muscles change and different things become easier and a lot of things become harder. Your timing is thrown off for basketball. I was trying to play tennis. I'd never played before and it was so awkward.
