Hold up: State now considers Josh Hartnett a 'former' Minnesotan?

We didn't get the memo, but apparently his card was revoked.

Normally, a Minnesotan appearing in the headlines is cause for that Minnesotan's fellow Minnesotans to celebrate. 

But it's kind of hard to celebrate when that Minnesotan isn't officially a Minnesotan anymore. Or is he? 

Case in point: heartthrob actor Josh Hartnett, who on Friday appeared in a public service ad from the Minnesota Secretary of State's office,  urging people — specifically Minnesotans — to vote:

Notice the message accompanying the above tweet. It describes Hartnett, who was born and raised in the Twin Cities, as a "former Minnesotan." 

This is despite the fact that Hartnett literally begins the video by saying "Minnesota is our home."

Though it's not clear where Hartnett hangs his hat these days, he seems to alternate between England and the United States, as he's married to British actress Tamsin Egerton (with whom he has two kids). 

We know where he has lived recently: earlier this year, he sold his swanky Los Angeles home, and in 2015, he made local headlines for putting his multimillion-dollar home on Lake of the Isles, Minneapolis, on the market.

Whatever his current whereabouts, BringMeTheNews has reached out to the ecretary of state's office to settle this urgent matter. 

Hartnett, 42, is known for films like The Faculty, The Virgin Suicides, Pearl Harbor and 40 Days and 40 Nights.
