Josh Hutcherson talks with Glamour: “Peeta is a “Let’s talk this through” kind of guy.”
In a new interview with Glamour, Josh Hutcherson talks about Peeta and the Catching Fire set.
GLAMOUR: What was it like being back on set with everyone?
JOSH HUTCHERSON: Jennifer [Lawrence] and I were nervous about our new costars because we’re kind of crazy when we’re together, so it can be a little scary for the new people. But everybody jumped right in. It was a fun vibe on set.
GLAMOUR: You and Jennifer are friends in real life. Is it weird having to switch to a romantic relationship on-screen?
JOSH HUTCHERSON: It is. There are times when we’ve had to cut because we can’t get through a take without laughing.
GLAMOUR: We have to ask: Team Gale or Team Peeta?
JOSH HUTCHERSON: I’m definitely Team Peeta! But Katniss’s dilemma is very real—it’s hard to know who to choose when you admire two people who are so different. The love triangle gets played up a lot more inCatching Fire.
GLAMOUR: You’ve said you really identify with Peeta. Why?
JOSH HUTCHERSON: Katniss is an “I’ll just shoot somebody with an arrow” person, and Peeta is a “Let’s talk this through” kind of guy. I have his mind-set.
GLAMOUR: How do you handle the pressures of fame?
JOSH HUTCHERSON: I don’t think I’ll ever get used to it. I have two-pointsomething million followers on Twitter, and if I say something, they all listen. It’s crazy! I shouldn’t be allowed that responsibility.
