Josh Hutcherson Thinks 18 Year Olds Should Be Able To Drink, Too!

| Filed under: Hunger GamesJosh Hutcherson

Josh Hutcherson Stands Up For Alexander

Well look who’s taking one for the team!

They might've been fierce tributes competitors in film-land, but in real life, there's a total bromance blossoming between Josh Hutcherson and Alexander Ludwig!!

Remember earlier this week we told you how underage Hunger Games star Alexander Ludwig (who's Canadian) was caught at the 21+ bar, The Sayers Club?

Well, it looks like now, his costar Josh (who's also 19) is sticking up for him!

When paps caught Hutcherson leaving STK in WeHo last night, Josh said:

"I think the age to go to war is 18…so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well."

That’s nice and all but it still doesn’t make up for the fact that now there’s a full on investigation of the bar by The California Dept. of Alcoholic Beverage Control!

Nice try, boyz! Maybe you should just trek up to Alexander's homeland for a beer!

    I think 18 years old should be the legal age for drinking. If an 18 year old is legal to go to war, then why not drinking? In Puerto Rico the age is 18.

    If you can make the decision to go to war at 18 then you should be considered responsible to drink at 18! Also, they've been friends for years so I don't think their 'bromance' is anything new.

    here in england the age is 18,,

    Re: Wmariah – Puerto Rico is a territory, not a state, and so it is governed in a different way. The legal drinking age there isn't relevant to the issue.
    When Canadians start paying taxes in the U.S. they can run their mouths. Until then, nobody cares what they enjoy in the great white north.
    We don't need to lower the legal drinking age. Those who are 21 are stupid enough in bars; we don't need younger people being equally or more stupid. If this means that the tax code needs to be looked at, so be it. But no one is asking either one of those morons to go to war, so their argument in favor of lowering the drinking age to 18 is stupid. There is no draft in the U.S., and so if someone 18 goes into the military, it's voluntary, and drinking age doesn't play into it. No sympathy … they knew the law and chose to break it. They should be arrested and punished.

    He has a point. The US is one of a handful of countries in the world that has a drinking age above 18/19. You know who the other ones are? Pakistan, only SOME parts of India, Kazakhstan, Oman, Sri Lanka, Indonesia, Tajikistan… you know, those "backwards" countries. I think the reason we have so many young people in our country being stupid about drinking is because it's so taboo compared to the way most every other country thinks about it.

    Hey La Garse, how old do Americans have to be to learn to read idiot? Obviously older than you, or you wouldn't be running your mouth at Canadians opinions when it was Hutcherson who said it. Last time I checked he was born in Kentucky! And seriously, arrested and punished? What planet you from son?

    Re: La Garse – I don't think you're getting it… if you are considered by the government to be responsible enough to decide to potentially give up your life for whatever stupid war that they're pushing, basic logic implies that the government should consider you responsible enough to handle your drink; if you aren't, you get arrested for being drunk and disorderly. At least that's what it's like here in the UK…

    He is so short and cute. (He's probably taller in person) I like this kids' work.

    Sure, that's a great idea. Let's have teenage idiots getting legally drunk. I'm sure most if not all 18 year olds are responsible enough to drive to the bar and then wait 10 hours until they're no longer drunk in order to drive home.
    HORRIBLE idea, but look at the retard advocating it.

  10. 10

    I don't actually understand why its so high in the States. Canada is 18/19 depending on the province and it works perfectly fine here. Yeah, there's some idiots who make stupid decisions and drink and drive but that sadly happens with a lot of older people too. You're legally considered an adult, you legally should be allowed to drink.

    Re: pdrocksmysocks – I completely agree with this.

    As a 21 year old from Canada, I can see huge differences in regular bars and the 21+ bars that I go to. You can tell who is freshly 19 and celebrating the freedom of finally being able to have a drink legally, and who has been legal for a few years and sees drinking as just another thing that comes with age. I'm sure that if the legal drinking age in Canada was 21, there would be 21 year olds who got drunk every single night of the week because they finally could.

  12. 12

    This is dictated by the federal goernment, not the sttes, so if you want a lower drinking age e prepared to shell out BILLIONS to each state for highway subsidies - other wise go back to Canada and come back when you ar 21.

    Im from Guatemala so i want to share this… there a spanish guatemalan singer "Ricardo Arjona" that have a songe named "si el norte fuera el sur" (if the north was south) that say something about this topic … " a los diezocho eres un niño para cualquier trago en algun bar, pero eres todo un hombre para la guerra y para matar" (when you have 18 years old you are a kid a drink in any bar, but you are a big man for war and for kill" … thing thats so true… i dont know when is the perfect time to drink but i thing that they have some truth in the word….

  14. 14

    being able to drink is a privliage and not every1 knows how to do this in moderation….im from ireland wer we can drink from the age of 18…….going out partying and drinking is something a young person should do and i personally think the reason there is so many fuk ups for example these teen stars who ruin there lives ie lindsay lohan is because wen they turn 21 they want to party but dontno how to handle it!!!drinking should be seen as a celebration and not an excuse for something else!!!!

    If we believe that 18 year olds have the ability to reason and allow them to vote, enter into contracts and sign up for the military at 18, why can't they drink? All 3 of the aforementioned are important. If you think people should wait until 21, than maybe signing up for the military and VOTING should be 21 too. Personal responsibility is what is needed. I am 47 and at 18 I was allowed to drink. It was grandfathered up to 21 in the state of Virginia. If we didn't follow the federal mandate, Virginia would have lost money to pay for roads.

    Re: Jayyyy – Um yeah nah. In Australia we have a thing called a cab or a designated driver. We have more idiots in Australia that are 24+ because they think they are tough. I think the American drinking age is very strict, kids will drink whether its legal or not, they enjoy experimenting it what you do as a kid. Let kids be kids and have some fun?

    Thats nice bros sticking up for bros, looks like they follow the Bro Code. Joking aside I think the drinking should stay 21, but In. Y opinion what 19 year old doesn't wish the drinking age was lower

  18. Laceee says – reply to this


    In Australia the drinking age is 18, at 18 you become eligible to vote, sign up for the army, drink, smoke etc. But that doesn't stop younger people drinking, it's always been like that and always will be. It shouldnt matter whether they can legally drink or not but more if they can handle themselves under the influence or not, I started drinking before the legal age at home and I learned early on how to handle myself and how much I can drink safely which happens alot in Australia. It's just a few idiots who thinks its cool or whatever to go out and make idiots of themselves and put other people in danger.

    I also believe that because the age limit is higher in some countries that can also contribute to the reason why young people go out and get blind drunk, they become impatient.
