Josh Hutcherson plays the soft-spoken Peeta Melark alongside Jennifer Lawrence‘s Katniss in The Hunger Games, and he always seemed to be… not acting in that role. He seemed quiet and sweet but a bit corny, and he still does to this day, bless him. Following suit, he made a statement of sorts about JLaw’s nude picture leak, saying simply that it’s “not fair” because stars are people too, you guys.
From ET Canada:
“Actually I haven’t talked to her but I just think all that stuff is so ridiculous,” the actor says of the set of nude celebrity photos which leaked over Labour Day weekend. “We’re people too man, we just want to live, we want to be normal people, it’s not fair.”
Hutcherson, who has been acting since he was 9-years-old, provided insight into how Lawrence might be dealing with the scandal and elaborates on the loss of privacy that comes with fame. “It’s something you obviously don’t want to happen to you and its really unfortunate that it happens but, I don’t know, I hate the way the world sort of views those sorts of issues,” he explains. “I think everyone has their own way of getting through it… It’s really truly not fair.”
I suppose it’s probably uncomfortable to be asked about something so personal that has zero to do with you but that you’re expected to have an opinion on because you know the person it DOES have to do with, so I can see why he came across as a bit of a bumbling idiot, but I would just have said before cameras started rolling, “Yo, don’t ask me about that shit.” People do it all the time! Save yourself the embarrassment, Josh.

Josh Hutcherson had a lot to say for OUT Magazine. He took a page from Michelle Rodriguez’s playbook and spoke frankly about his sexuality.
Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a fucking year, I could meet a guy and be like, ‘Whoa, I’m attracted to this person.’ I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, ‘Damn, that’s a good-looking guy’, you know? I’ve never been, like, ‘Oh, I want to kiss that guy’. I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.
Here’s some more interesting quotes.
On raising a kid:
I have this dream that one day, my kid’s gonna come home from school and be like, ‘Dad, there’s this girl that I like, and there’s this guy that I like, and I don’t know which one I like more, and I don’t know what to do.’ And it’d just be a non-issue, like, ‘Which one is a good person? Which one makes you laugh more?’
On a hypothetical Hunger Games threesome:
I know Peeta would be into it, for sure. He’s very sensitive, in touch with his emotions. I think it really might solve a lot of their problems. You know what? I’m going to pitch that idea. Let’s make it a—what’s it called when three people are in a relationship together? A triad? That’ll go over well with Middle America.
On his leaked nude pics:
I find it so shocking still that nakedness is so shocking.
Yo Josh, say “shocking” one more time.

Josh Hutcherson AKA Hunger Games dude, has some leaked nudes of him that are dazzling the internet right now. Apparently he took these and distributed them himself when he was on a dating site a few years ago under the name “Connor.” Life of the Rich and Famous got the above photo and has some details:
A year ago or so, 20-year old Josh Hutcherson was allegedly caught on a online dating site.. under the name, “Connor”.
‘Connor’ was not only sending photos to girl(s) but actual videos of him pleasuring himself to someone who we gladly got a hold of.
After reaching out to his team for a comment, all we got was legal threats.
Nice job, Connor. How stupid does one have to be?? Sending nudes online is one of the worst ideas you could have. Yeah, I guess he didn’t know he was going to star in the hugely successful Hunger Games series, but that doesn’t matter. Why put something like that out there on the internet where anyone can find it and pass it along? Maybe he doesn’t care.
You can tell it’s him because of his stupid giant anchor tattoo. Can’t wait for the video!
