One of hollywood's reluctant hotties, Hartnett can be seen in the quirky crime-boss comedy "Lucky Number Slevin." He spoke with NEWSWEEK's Ramin Setoodeh.

Downtown, in Tribeca. I love it down there. New York is the best city for a celebrity. Everybody is focusing on their own lives. I think Greta Garbo said something like, "This is the only place I can be alone."


I don't want to talk about my private life. Who knows what will happen? Everything inevitably changes.

I don't know. I write fiction, short stories. It's embarrassing. I'm not that great a writer.
