Josh Hartnett Was A Massive Star In The Early 2000s, So Why Haven't We Seen Him Since?

- Page 1

It seemed like Josh Hartnett was in every movie in the early 2000s, but now it's hard remember the last movie you saw him in.

Touchstone Pictures

Where did he go?

You probably remember him from the movie Pearl Harbor, where he played Captain Danny Walker, or Black Hawk Down as the character Eversmann. He has been in a lot of very successful movies, and was one of the biggest heartthrobs of the early 2000s.

Bravo

Seriously, his IMDB page is just a big reminder of all the great things he's done.

One of his first big movies was The Virgin Suicides

American Zoetrope

Very shortly after he was in Pearl Harbor and Black Hawk Down which were both HUGE movies

Touchstone Pictures
Revolution Studios

Did he have some flops? Of course he did. 40 Days and 40 Nights wasn't great, neither was Blow Dry

Miramax
Mirage Enterprises

But he came back with Sin City

Dimension Films

Followed by Lucky Number Slevin

Weinstein Company

And then The Black Dahlia

Universal Pictures

While his output really hasn't changed as much as you'd expect, the type of projects he is working on has definitely changed.

He still acts, just in smaller indie movies or TV shows like Penny Dreadful

Dessert Wolf Productions

Fans still wonder why he stopped making the Hollywood blockbusters that made him a star. It turns out it was for a pretty relatable reason.

But there's an actual reason why he made a major career change

As it turns out, being pushed into the spotlight and having people judge you while you go through puberty is apparently not all that good for you. Who would have guessed? Can you sense the sarcasm? Going through this intense scrutiny at such a young age isn't really that great, and not everyone handles it as

'Mad About You' Stars Officially Sign On To A Revival And Reveal What They've Got Planned

We knew it was a possibility that Mad About You would come back, and now it's looking as though it's a lot more likely as both former stars have signed on for a revival. In the last year alone, we've seen two other huge 90s hits come back and exceed expectations. Will & Grace came back to NBC after a political commercial kind of took over everyone's minds and we realized we wanted more. And of course there is Roseanne as well, which has been killing it in the ratings every episode. It's honestly only a matter of time before all

Shelley Duval Says That Robin Williams Is Alive And She Knows Where He Is

Robin Williams was one of our generations finest actors. He was a comedic genius with a mind that was constantly running a mile a minute. He was more clever than any of us could ever hope to be, and we were lucky to have had him for the short time we did. While he passed away too young, Williams made a lot of amazing hit movies. Movies like Mrs. Doubtfire, Jumanji, and Good Will Hunting all proved he was capable at making entertaining content that we all loved. But his first big staring role in a motion picture was actually

It's Been Over 20 Years Since 'Space Jam' Came Out, But What Ever Happened To The Monstars?

Since the Looney Tunes started, they have been able to bring together the entire world with their hilarious cartoons. Whether we were watching Bugs give a haircut, Wile E. Coyote chase the Roadrunner, or Sylvester go after Tweety, there were infinite possibilities and all were entertaining. But one story really beat out the rest as the most memorable, and that was Space Jam. You might not think that a silly 90s movie about basketball could top decades of cartoons, but guess what, it was pretty freakin' awesome if you ask me. Warner BrosSpace Jam came out in 1996 and it
