Josh Hutcherson Talks About How Peeta Is 'Strong'

Another great interview where Josh Hutcherson talks all about the making of the movie, his role as Peeta Mellark, the incredible response, and more.

Here's a bit of one of our favorite parts:
To talk a bit about Peeta, 20 years ago if you there had been a movie like this made it would have featured a male lead and female supporting characters. But here it’s the alpha female, beta male. I was hoping you could talk a bit about that perspective.

I think Peeta’s strong in his own way. That’s something that myself and Gary Ross and Suzanne Collins talked about often was making sure Peeta works cinematically and by that I mean I think he has a little bit more backbone. In the book he’s a great character, but obviously can come across as a little soft sometimes and I think that cinematically he’s much more interesting because he has a bit more backbone. So I think that a few scenes in the cave scene with Jennifer we really wanted to add in a little bit more strength to his character and instead of being kind of sappy with it he’s coming from a place of, “I could die, I need to tell you how I feel about this.” Katniss is such a strong character and the story is obviously told from her perspective, so I think that anybody who is a strong woman can relate to that, and strong women can be with a strong man and it works out that way. But it is different and that could be why it’s so important to people because it’s something that they haven’t seen before.

Josh Talks About His First Impression Of Jennifer Lawrence

In Rolling Stones upcoming interview, Josh Hutcherson talks about his first impression meeting Jennifer Lawrence:
"When I got cast, she called me up for one of those five-minute 'Excited to work with you, blah, blah, blah' things," he says in the magazine. "The conversation started with her saying, 'Think about a catheter going in — ouch!' and then turns into a 45-minute rant about zombies and the apocalypse."
Haha, we wish we were listening in on that call!

Josh Hutcherson Talks 'Hunger Games' Sequel And Texting Jennifer Lawrence

Josh Hutcherson spoke with Ryan Seacrest this morning and the two talked about the crazy success of "Hunger Games" so far, filming the next one, and what he texts to Jennifer Lawrence.

While the two haven't talked about the opening weekend, they do talk b-ball. "I texted Jennifer about basketball…the only conversation we've had is about the Final Four. We talk about the movie so much, we don't have time to do that with each other."

As for "Catching Fire," Josh is excited to film the "unspoken tension" between Peeta and Gale.  We look forward to that too, Josh! :)

Josh Hutcherson In 'Detention'!

Opening Friday April 13th (yes, Friday the 13th!) is Josh Hutcherson's film "Detention."  No doubt they are trying to cash in on the success of "Hunger Games" but you can catch a clip of Peeta (um, we mean Josh) in "Detention."  That's not him in the still shot, by the way, but you already knew that...

And here's a recap: 'Detention' tells the story of the senior class at Grizzly Lake high school. The road to graduation is never an easy one, but it's further complicated for these students by the arrival of a slasher movie killer who has seemingly come to life. The only ones who can stop the killer are a handful of students, but they'll have to cut out of detention if they're to stand a chance at saving the world."

Josh Hutcherson Talks About His Foraging Skills

Here's yet another great interview with our boy, Josh Hutcherson, as he talks about the movies, his survival skills, and Jennifer Lawrence.

Here's a few of our favorite parts:
Tell me about your foraging skills. How long would you last if dropped off in a forest?
I have pretty good foraging skills. I grew up in Kentucky in the woods, playing a lot, and I love hiking and camping and being outdoors. I watch a lot of “Man vs. Wild” with Bear Grylls. So I feel like I’d be prepared for any situation. I feel like I might do all right in the Hunger Games. My biggest problem would obviously be killing someone, but as far as surviving in the wilderness I think I’d do all right.

What’s the most extreme experience you had in the wilderness?
Actually maybe when we were filming. Liam and I were actually doing an interview and we hear this horn, and all of a sudden this bear comes running right at us. Literally running. It was a black bear; it was probably 400 pounds. It looks up and saw us and then took off in the other direction. That was pretty intense, all of a sudden seeing a bear running toward you and being like, “How do we handle this? What exactly is going to be our plan here when this bear attacks one of us?”

A lot of people ask you the same questions. Tell me a story you haven’t gotten to tell yet about Jennifer.
Before we started filming—here’s a good one actually I haven’t told anybody—when we were staying at our apartments in North Carolina, one night we had everybody over to Jennifer’s apartment and we decided we were going to get a slingshot and we were going to slingshot berries at people in cars as they drove by. So we’re sling-shotting like grapes and blueberries and eventually the people in the hotel like called up and they’re like, “Uh, are you guys shooting things off the balcony?” And we’re like, “Nope, don’t know what you’re talking about.” [Laughs.] So we stopped. So we got in a lot of trouble, but it was pretty fun.

Josh Hutcherson Talks His First Solo Cover

Are you digging Josh Hutcherson on this Nylon cover as much as we are?!?

He talks to the LA Times about the cover, as well as his style, and his crazy travel schedule (thanks to "The Hunger Games"):
"I’ve traveled for work before but nowhere near this much," Hutcherson said about the nationwide media blitz that he was about to embark on the next day. "The itinerary is 30 pages and it's going to be every day in a different city with traveling [to the next city] at the end of each day. ... There's going to be a lot of Emergen-C and vitamin C and stuff like that."

He'll also be packing an iPod ("An iPod is the No. 1 thing -- 100%," Hutcherson told us, "You've gotta have your music"), blue jeans ("All Saints is my favorite jean") and Timberland boots. "I’m pretty simple, I don't use a hairbrush or a certain kind of hair product," he said. "I’m all about flannels and layers, so that's pretty much what I rock."

Josh Hutcherson (And The Rest Of The Cast) At The London Premiere Of 'The Hunger Games'

About the success of the series, Josh said said: "It's a world that's very intriguing. The futuristic world and separation of the rich and the poor, and this battle between these children is very interesting.

"I think the characters are very dynamic and [Peeta Mellark] is someone I connected with a lot." 

We agree, Josh.  Team Peeta connected with him a lot too! lol.

Josh Hutcherson On Being Cast As Peeta: ‘I Was Literally Rendered Speechless’

Parade has interviewed our boy, Peeta! Here's a couple of our favorite bits:
What was the biggest challenge of playing Peeta?
“Gary Ross and I wanted to make sure that we did not let Peeta become too sappy, just because he’s admitting his love to Katniss. He takes a lot of strength from Katniss. And Katniss learns how to open up emotionally from Peeta.”

Did you do much physical training?
“I had to put on 15 pounds so I ate tons of protein and worked out, but there wasn’t that much training because I don’t do a whole lot of fighting. I get injured early on.”

We have one word for this, Jennifer.  Unacceptable.  :)
