Josh Hutcherson on Kissing Jennifer Lawrence
While making the rounds on the red carpet last night, Josh talked to Access Hollywood, who asked about kissing and about how loyal the Hunger Games fandom is:
“It was good,” the 19-year-old actor – who plays Peeta Mellark in the movie – said, beaming.
“Jennifer Lawrence is beautiful, so I’m not going to complain,” he said of his co-star, who plays the movie’s lead, Katniss Everdeen. “It was good.”
Adding, “It was a really fun time shooting.”
The actor explained to AccessHollywood.com’s Laura Saltman that the movie’s team worked very hard to shroud the North Carolina set in secrecy.
“They kept a very tight set. They were strict about letting people on and off and they had black curtains up everywhere,” Josh explained. “So, they wanted to keep it locked down.”
Josh also hopes fans of the books are happy with the big screen version of author Suzanne Collins’ books.
“They are the most loyal fans that exist, it’s slightly intimidating but very exciting at the same time,” he continued. “I’m excited about it and very nervous.”
