Josh Hartnett stunned shoppers in a second hand shop by insisting he had no money. The wealthy Pearl Harbor star has also been spotted buying cheap car cleaner in a Beverly Hills store, and taking his clothes to the launderette for a cut price wash. An onlooker told British tabloid the Daily Star Sunday, "He told the staff, 'People think I'm a rich actor but I'm not'", before adding that he was not 'made of money'.
