Josh Hartnett suing newspaper over sexual dalliance claimsSeptember 10th, 2008 - 5:50 pm ICT by ANI
London, Sept 10 (ANI): Actor Josh Hartnett is suing the Daily Mirror newspaper over claims by the publication that he had a “sexual dalliance” in a public area of a London hotel.
The 30-year-old stars lawyers have said that he is now seeking damages for defamation.
The statement said that Hartnett, who is all set to star in a West End production of Rain Man, is also seeking a public apology.
According to the Mirror story, the actor was captured on CCTV footage romping with a woman in the library of a Soho hotel.
It is also alleged that the workers were a witness to the incident.
However, Hartnetts legal representatives have said that the allegations are “not only untrue but a complete fabrication,” and were also “defamatory and unsubstantiated”.
They further said that the story defaming the Pearl Harbor actor had been republished around the world. (ANI)
