Actor Reveals Why He Backed Out of Hollywood

( – In the early 2000s, Josh Hartnett was a famous Hollywood star, but he hasn’t been around Tinseltown for a long time. Anyone wondering what happened to him can rest easy knowing while he stepped out of the spotlight, he is happy with his life these days.

During a recent interview, Hartnett explained he left the industry because it harmed his mental health. He was only in his early twenties when he made hits like “Pearl Harbor” and “Black Hawk Down,” and the star said being in that world was too intense.

Now 43, the actor has long-since left California to pursue roles in independent films. His latest works include “Paradise Lost” and “Wrath of Man.” He described working on indie movies as more comfortable because he gets to work directly with the people making the decisions. He also prefers the more original offerings of the independent industry.

Since walking away from blockbusters and the big-budget movie industry, Harnett has enjoyed living a quiet life with his family. He currently resides in the UK with his wife, Tamsin Egerton. The actor is content with his choices because he feels he has a superior balance between his personal life and career.
