Josh Hutcherson Has A Hard Time Dating

Josh is single, and according to him, has a hard time dating.

''It's hard to believe, but I'm very shy when it comes to talking to girls. I don't know why I get so nervous because it's so easy, it's just talking and I talk all the time. But it's terrifying,'' he said.

As for his type, Josh explained, ''It's important for a girl to be herself. I don't want someone who is trying to make me think she's a certain way when she's something different. Someone who is comfortable in their own shoes and who is down for having a fun time. I used to have a very specific type - dark hair, dark eyes, dark skin. Now I'm more into the beauty of a person.''

In the Hunger Games, you play Peeta, the baker's son. Can you really bake?

What?! You know women's shoes well enough to purchase them as gifts?
Oh, yeah, all the time. I always buy my mom Louboutins or Jimmy Choos for her birthday. I have a pretty good sense of style, all in all. Once I figure out a woman, I know what she should wear - which comes in handy when you have a mom and girlfriends. you can always make them happy with a nice bag or a pair of pumps.

How easily do you fall in love?
Like that [snaps fingera]! I'd rather have loved and than lost than not loved at all. So when I'm in a relationship, I'm very "I love you, I love you, i love you!"

Liam Hemsworth Takes Josh Hutcherson To White Castle

Liam and Josh have a bromance!

The two, who became good friends while filming "The Hunger Games," bonded when they took a little road trip to Kentucky and stopped off at White Castle:
“The only time I’d ever seen it was in Harold & Kumar; it was my favorite movie when I was 15. When I was living in Australia, I didn’t know that White Castle even existed; I thought they’d made it up for the film.
I honestly think I ate close to 20 of those little burgers. We thought it was a good idea to play basketball after; we played for about an hour, and then we threw up together. It was a bonding experience.”
 Here's the video of it!
