Josh Hartnett Learned How to Walk Around in NYC Without Getting Noticed

“For a long time, I didn’t do anything at all,” Josh told Vulture. “I mean, I was directing some music videos and writing a lot, but I just wasn’t interested in the stuff I was being offered in film, and I had a very specific idea of what I wanted to do and accomplish. I wanted to write something—I’m my own worst critic, but I wanted to. I couldn’t even bring myself to get funding for any of the things I was writing, but that was the idea—to control a project. Not having control over the entire thing—you’re free within the context, then you give it away and someone else tears it apart. For better or worse, it’s not yours.”

As for going incognito in New York City, Josh said, “I like to disappear…When I was younger I learned how to get through this city without anybody noticing. Which is important to me.”

Probably easy for him to not get noticed while walking the streets. He looks like most other guys I see walking down the street. Nothing really distinct about his face.

It’s easy to go incognito on the streets on NY when no one is looking for you

Oh the memories… It was 1993, and I looked just like Josh. And I was doing the exact same thing that he is doing now.

Crazy in the head, great in bed…

Josh looks good. He should shave more often. He’s got a great sense of humor. It doesn’t matter what movie he makes. He looks good all the same. It’s his girlfriends that look ugly on him. If he would concentrate on his work rather than spend time with ugly girls, he would make a great star.
