Actor Josh Hartnett has reportedly received a verbal warning from security bosses at a London hotel after he was allegedly caught on camera getting intimate with a female friend in a public library.
The Pearl Harbor star, who is preparing to take to the London stage for a theatre adaptation of Dustin Hoffman and Tom Cruise's movie Rainman, was allegedly spotted enjoying a frisky romp with an unidentified female at the Soho Hotel - and security guards witnessed Hartnett's every move.
They were forced to warn him not to repeat his steamy actions.
A source tells Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper, "Josh and the girl were getting pretty hot and heavy. After stumbling in quite late, they legged it (ran) to the library and immediately closed all the curtains so that no one could see in.
"Unfortunately the hotel has security cameras all over the place - the library included. This means their every spit and cough was recorded, and cringing hotel workers saw all of Josh's X-rated moves.
"No one quite knew where to look and there was a very awkward silence. Josh didn't seem bothered that the library wasn't locked and anyone could just burst in. He just kind of went for it.
"After the event, someone had a quiet word in Josh's ear and he was asked to take his personal business elsewhere in future. Josh took it on the chin (acknowledged it) and didn't kick up a fuss. He's been as good as gold since."
Harnett's stint on the West End stage was due to start on Tuesday (02Sep08), but has been delayed until next week (begs08Sep08) because director Terry Johnson insists the play is not quite ready.
