What's Josh Hartnett's Biggest Pet Peeve?

Josh Hartnett battles scary monsters in Showtime’s new horror series Penny Dreadful. The actor, 35, who says he loves The Beach Boys and fixing things, chatted with PEOPLE this week about "one last thing."

Last moment of bliss
It's such a man thing, but if I can fix something, it's blissful for me. I'm renting this house, and there is a French press coffeemaker that just wouldn't go together correctly. It was a very simple thing, but I did it and it made my coffee so much more delicious.

Last musical obsession
I've been getting back into The Beach Boys. I started listening to an album of theirs on repeat recently, but I can't remember the name of it. That's the thing about having everything on your computer or iPod – you never look at the titles anymore!

Last gift I received
I was given a really nice book, The Secret Agent, by Joseph Conrad. It was a wrap gift from my dialect coach. I had talked about it once months beforehand when we were starting the show, and she had remembered.

Last time I cringed
Right now I'm in California for a bit and staying in Silverlake. What bothers me is people who are perfectly, raggedly coiffed who sit at coffee shops all day.
