Josh Hartnett

Hollywood star Josh Hartnett says he only has himself to blame for his recent hospitalization for stomach pains, because he ignored advice against drinking unpurified water during several trips to underdeveloped countries around the world. The sexy actor was admitted to a Los Angeles California hospital in March after suffering abdominal pains during a night out. His press representative claimed Harnett had a recurring gastrointestinal disorder, which first affected him during his stint on London's West End stage last year. Josh is now admitting his illness was most likely caused by contaminated water, but has played down his ailment and urged fans not to worry about his health. He tells, "I'm fine. I just had a little stomach bug. "(There's) nothing to worry about. I went to the hospital and it was literally just a 24-hour thing. I was so dehydrated that I needed to be on a couple of IVs, but I'm good. "It's been reoccurring because I have been spending a lot of time in Third World countries, and I occasionally drank the water when I shouldn't have - and sometimes it catches up with you."
