Josh Hartnett

Pearl Harbor and Black Hawk Down's Josh Hartnett, 26, explores the dark side of romance as an ad exec on an obsessive search for a lost love in Wicker Park, out Sept. 3.

ON HIS OWN ROMANTIC WOES I tend to fall for the wrong people. Not so much anymore, but when I was younger, I always liked girls who were unattainable. I thought I could really make them want me. It was a losing battle.

ON BEING A HEARTTHROB Am I one? I leave that posturing to other people. You've got plenty in Hollywood who want to do that.

ON TURNING DOWN THE ROLE OF SUPERMAN I didn't want to put on the tights.

ON HIS ARTSY SIDE I've been painting since I was a kid. I've also started getting back into music. My little brother [Joe, 16] is teaching me how to play piano now, which is cool because he's a musical genius.

ON NESTING IN HIS NATIVE MINNESOTA My place in New York is empty, but the one in Minneapolis is starting to fill up. After shooting, it's good to have a place to come back to that has my stuff, my bed and people I know.
