New Weekly magazine caught up with Josh Hartnett in a Q&A, and mentioned that Paris Hilton had said recently that he talked trash about her. Laughing, Hartnett responded, “Am I talking about Paris Hilton? I never said anything about Paris Hilton, I’m sure.” The interviewer said Hilton definitely said something about Hartnett talking about her. “Oh I’m not going to get into a dumb-ass battle with her,” the actor responded. “I don’t really have any connection with the kind of party world of Hollywood. That’s just so weird. Where did that come from? I’m the furthest thing from that world, it’s unbelievable! I don’t really participate in the Hollywood running around.” Despite Hartnett’s denial, he was quoted in an interview with Jane magazine earlier this year saying: “What scares me with pop culture is… looking at my younger brother and sister and their friends, seeing my little sister’s friends looking, like, to Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton – I just don’t think that’s anything to strive for. I don’t think those girls are too happy. And it’s like, the culture is so focused on a more self-oriented… luck-based mentality. It’s just like, get what’s good for you. It’s a herd mentality that I think is really about making money.”
