We're getting closer and closer to the release date!
Josh Hutcherson, the hawtie playing Peeta Mellark in the upcoming Hunger Games movie has a lot to say about the movie, his character, a real-life Hunger Games, and complementing co-star Jennifer Lawrence.
So what does he have to say?
"Jennifer’s portrayal of Katniss is so spot on. She really does encapsulate Katniss' strength as a heroine perfectly. She to me is the one that stands out immediately."
As for who would win a real-life Hunger Games, him, Jennifer or their co-star Liam Hemsworth, Josh says:
"That’s a tough question, honestly. I grew up playing outside, playing in the woods. I’m very into camping and survivalist kinda things. I watch a lot of Man Vs. Wild, so I feel like I’m well prepared in that sense. It would be a close one. I might be a frontrunner in that battle, I’m not sure!"
Since his character in the movie is a son of a baker, Josh talks about whether or not HE himself can bake a thing or two in the kitchen. Jake's response:
"I can bake. I can bake a mean apple pie. A French apple pie! That’s how good I am. I can bake a little, I made some loaves of bread that weren’t that bad actually. I’m more of a grill master."
So, he's nice to his co-stars, is an outdoorsy tough guy AND can make his way around a kitchen? This guy's got a very, very good future.
Hunger Games will be released March 23, 2012!
