Josh Hartnett discusses his upbringing

Josh Hartnett says he had a creative upbringing.

The actor, who comes from Minnesota, was surrounded by creative types when growing up.

“I think there are an inordinate amount of creative people that come from my hometown because we literally spend six months out of the year inside with nothing to do but imagine,” said Josh.

“Really great musicians come from Minnesota because there’s just so much time to practice. We have a couple of true geniuses like Bob Dylan and Prince and other artists as well. And I come from an artistic family so I think climate ultimately affects everything.

“If you have nothing but beaches around you, you’ll probably surf and have a great tan. It’s going to affect the way you look and the way you act.”
