“It’s fuckin’ horrible,” he says. “I haven’t spoken to her since it happened, but as far as the public, Twitter, and media have reacted, it’s awful. We act because it’s what we want to do. I’ve acted since I was 9 years old because it’s my job, it’s what I’m good at, and it’s what I love to do. I don’t want attention. I don’t want to have my private life looked into or have people think they deserve to know about my private life. And then people say, ‘Well, then you shouldn’t have become an actor.’ Fuck that. I didn’t choose all that. I chose to be an actor. I was 9 years old! Do you think a 9-year-old is thinking about public scandal? I wanted to make movies.”—Josh Hutcherson on the Jennifer Lawrence hacking scandal (via joshhutchersonnews)
The actor best known as Peeta Mellark sat down with Marlow Stern in Toronto to discuss his latest film, Escobar: Paradise Lost, and his disgust over his co-star and pal’s privacy breach.
If the Hollywood powers that be ever decide to reboot the Back to the Future franchise, Josh Hutcherson would make a fine Marty McFly. Gregarious, charming, and diminutive in stature, the 21-year-old Kentuckian is blessed with that special brand of boyish insouciance that endears him to audiences, whether it be the tetchy adopted son to a pair of lesbian moms in The Kids Are All Right or the dystopian boy Friday Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games flicks.
