First of all, let me say that Josh is a biscuit, but I don't think he should be included in the "Vegetarian" category. The article says he's a former vegetarian. If there's a seperate category for omnivorian converts, let's put him in it. Otherwise, better remove it. Thoughts? --Uberchouette 01:36, 26 July 2005 (UTC)
Agreed: he is a former vegetarian according to this article (http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/showbiz/2008-10/17/content_7115980.htm), sourced from a recent Radio 1 interview. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 22.214.171.124 (talk) 20:14, 19 October 2008 (UTC)
Is there a good source out there that says he's Swedish or part Swedish? And I don't mean the IMDB or any of the websites that copy the IMDB's trivia. The IMDB has been outrageously wrong when it comes to similar trivia bits about actors - i.e. Burt Reynolds's mother being Italian (wrong), Michael Madsen being Irish and Italian (wrong and wrong), etc. etc. etc.
Something like an interview where he mentions being Swedish? 126.96.36.199 08:03, 16 October 2005 (UTC)
thats strange usually IMDB won't publish it without vertifiable source ie: a website confirming it. But then again i have seen the most thickiest info get through ie: an actor who was born in 1957 and then it says he died in 1955 lmao. FireInMySoul 04:47, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
- Are you kidding me on that comment about the IMDB not publishing it unless there's a verifiable source? They have so much gosh-darned junk on that site that can only be verified on the planet Mars. Like, they just added that Adam Brody (look under Adam Brody's entry) is the brother of Adrien Brody. I could probably list dozens and dozens and dozens of out-right wrong/misleading or stupid IMDB information, which leads (or used to, at least) to it getting re-posted over and over the net, and then people come to Wikipedia convinced it's accurate. They should Wikipedize and let us correct their idiocy. Vulturell 06:28, 28 January 2006 (UTC)
There are only 14 people moderating that site not thousands like Wikipedia. Give me a break. FireInMySoul 19:50, 29 January 2006 (UTC)
- lol, "give you a break"? Why, are you one of those 14 people? It's nothing personal, just that IMDB inadvertantly leads to the spreading of more inaccurate information than is really needed. Vulturell 04:01, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Your getting all huffy at IMDB for having inaccurate information and i'm saying that IMDB doesn't have enough people to MODERATE the site and correct what needs to be corrected at the speed of light. Give them time. They don't spend there lives at IMDB. FireInMySoul 22:20, 30 January 2006 (UTC)
Jesus Crap stop being so nitpicky yes he's of Swedish descent. It's pretty much common knowledge now. But that does not mean he is Swedish.

the picture does not look like him, especially with the obscuring hat.
Biographies of living persons should not have trivia sections. Relevant notable sourced claims should be woven into the article. Trivia can go on the talk page as a staging ground. Eventualism is deprecated on BLP articles. Please read Wikipedia:Biographies of living persons SallyBoseman 21:23, 5 April 2007 (UTC)
The city of birth
IMDb lists Josh Hartnett's birthplace as San Francisco, California, but many other websites give St.Paul Minnesota. The different langages in Wikipedia also disagree. I am trying to create the page in Bulgarian and I wonder if anyone knows for sure. Thank you. Radostina Radostina,
I can't be 100% sure, but I am very sure that Josh Hartnett was
born in CA and then moved to St. Paul whenever. I have seen other discrepensies as well a site said he graduated from Richfield. My sister says he was at South High in Minneapolis while she was there. I'm checking the year book tomorrow...lol. GL but my guess would be born in CA and raised here.(MN)
