I cannot believe I'm lusting over someone born my senior year of high school. Makes me feel so dirty.
Oh well. At least he's legal.
Same here. I've been lusting after him a long time... and I'm old enough to be his father.
I like that he's small/short.
What I love about him even more is how pro-gay he is. He took time off from promoting Hunger Games one afternoon and visited a gay-straight alliance meeting in an LA Highschool. I can't think of ANY straight male celebs that would do that. Really cool if u ask me!
He's totally awesome. I love him, even when he's in crap movies.
If only he were taller, didn't wear vests, and had an ass.
It was well deserved. He has gone out of his way to support gay causes, not just doing standard publicity things.
It's interesting that all the closeted actors from Twilight have been absolutely mum on gay issues.
I love Josh Hutcherson because it isn't easy to be a young, male, action star and be the gay rights crusader that he is. I wish more stars in Hollywood had the balls to be like him.
A (hot gay) friend of mine worked with him on a filmed piece a couple of years ago and says Josh totally eye-raped him.
Totally going the Daniel Radcliffe route. Cool guy.
He upstaged Jennifer Lawrence in THG, which really surprised me. The kid can act.
That said, he really does look like one of ours.
I love that Josh is so committed. So many male movie stars will make flip comments here and there about gay causes, but he really walks the walk. Good for Him!
Phyllis Rogers Stone
Love for Josh too!
Seems nice, but I don't see the hotness. He's got an old man's face.
A Pocket Gay
He is VERY committed to marirage equality, and gay causes because he had *two* uncles die of AIDS, and his pet project is "Straight but Not Narrow" which targets anti-homophobia in high schools. He will be a gay ally for life.
Me too(r33) I probably saw Hunger Games more because I wanted to support him.
R. Pattinson has never passed out gay rights braclets at UCLA
Any other josh fans?
Yeah I love Josh too! Wish more were as outspoken!
I have to agree that Josh upstaged Jennifer Lawrence in "The Hunger Games"...he really showed his acting chops. I was very surprised that he supports his gays, and is against bullying and homophobia.
Josh is also the youngest actor to receive a GLADD award.
[quote]A (hot gay) friend of mine worked with him on a filmed piece a couple of years ago and says Josh totally eye-raped him
I like and respect Hutcherson a lot but I think it is laughable he upstaged Lawrence in the Hunger Games.
He played his part well but she carried that entire movie on her shoulders. It would not have succeeded without her damn impressive performance.
They were BOTH great, and the chemistry was very good.
Lawrence was great, Hutcherson was OK. They barely had any chemistry.
Yeah I think he rocked in Hunger Games and The Kids are All Right
[quote]They barely had any chemistry.
Word, they really didn't. Katniss and the Gale dude had much more of a romantic chemistry between them.
R22: If you knew anything about Josh, you would know he has lots of ass.
(44) is he a player?
I heard that his family was concerned from the start that he had a recessive form of dwarfism when he was younger because his arms are relatively short. You can also see the problem with his mandible. Corpus mandibulae extremis is associated with this form of dwarfism.
Apparently he is now taking the growth hormone therapy they give short children with to try to add a couple of inches to his height before he matures out of the chance for help. He is 5'2" but wears lifts that add two inches. He's extremely sensitive about it and knows his career will be over as soon as he's past the male ingenue stage. That's one reason why he'll take just about every job he's offered.
He's only 5'2"? Yikes.
Does anyone have any scoop on Josh Hutcherson?
I think he's adorable just the way he is.
I would say 5'4"-5'5".
Anyway fuck you r46. Josh is awesome.
And he's really cute!
I don't think you can understate how awesome Josh is.
Here is a guy who is not even 21 and who is the heterosexual love interest in billion-dollar franchise that every teenager is America loves and he is going out of his way and probably counter to everything his publicists and managers have told him in order to speak out in unabashed, triumphant, rapturous language about GLBT equality.
It's because of people like Josh Hutcherson that we can look forward to a future generation that will finally acknowledge complete civil and social equality of gays and lesbians.
I totally agree with (52)
That's great, R52 and R53, but you do know that "overstate," not "understate" was meant, right? When you're waxing poetic it's sometimes hard to not whack poetic.
He needs to stop with the vests, they just make him look shorter and stumpier.
Did anyone else notice at Cinemacon, where Josh won an award on Thursday night, his "straight but not narrow" button and wristband he wore to the GLAAD awards was missing. Either his publicist told him to tone down the gay stuff, or he only wears that stuff at gay events like GLAAD Awards and Newnownext. I wonder if he only feels comfortable wearing that stuff to events where he knows everyone shares that same idea.
Just questioning recent pics.
He's definitely got that Soap Opera star square jawed look.
And that Wizard of Oz munchkin height.
That speech made me cry
So who is Josh's girlfriend now?
I will not tolerate anyone ragging on this amazing young man.
He's a stocky little midget who tossed aside his gay buttons the second he landed in Las Vegas (to receive some piddly little award).
So (63) do u think it was his choice? Maybe he's only pro gay around gay audiences?
Do you really think it's fair to expect him to wear those buttons at every appearance he makes?
 It would be a nice gesture! lol
He's only 19? (He was busted trying to use a fake ID to buy liquor.)
Josh was at the washington dc show last night. Apparently according to the Hollywood Reporter, when asked what he would do as president, he answered "marriage equality"
George Bush's constitutional amendment
There's a bit of Woody Harrelson around the jaw.
I love him. He's awesome. I wish him much success and happiness.
He is cute! I like the shorter hair he's been sporting this past week!
Is his dick at least normal sized? It'd be a shame if that's stumpy too.
[r72] We should ask Vanessa Hudgens. They dated.
Vanessa certainly has a type.
What's her type?
Has Josh ever dabbled with men?
He's 5'5 and a terrible actor. I don't have much hope for a career.
Though to be honest I've only seen him in Hunger Games. Perhaps he only seemed terrible in contrast to Jennifer Lawerence, who was fantastic in a shitty movie.
Ok, 5'2 seems more likely than 5'5.
He was on Punkd this week and he was the same height as Lucy Hale and she is 5'2.
Does shortness run in his family? Are they all short too?
[quote]Does shortness run in his family?
Not very fast!
Other movies he's been in:
Journey to the Center of the Earth
Journey 2: The Mysterious Island
The Kids Are All Right
Cirque du Freak: The Vampire's Assistant
Bridge to Terabithia
He's also done some voice acting work (English dub of "Howl's Moving Castle" to name one example)
He should stick to voice acting.
I think he's hot....and an advocate. So basically, he's amazing.
Oh, brother. R83, are their any openly gay actors you think are amazing? Seems like there are a contingent of homosexuals who grade on a curve when it comes to judging our "advocates."
R84, can you stop being a fucking moron?
It's perfectly possible to find Josh amazing AND find openly gay actors amazing. Jesus Christ.
It's not a zero sum game. You're an asshat.
Here's what I don't understand about Datalounge. Hunger Games has made 600 million dollars. Hutcherson at 19, is the youngest winner of the GLAAD Vanguard Award for gay rights allys (which was very much deserved) and yet his thread only goes to 85 replies?
And yet, the stars of Twilight, who have said NOTHING about gay rights have huge, long threads on datalounge.
Is Josh really that uninteresting? Am I the only big fan?
Trust me, not having a 600 post thread on Datalounge is a GOOD THING.
Josh is aces in my book, and he appears to be clean-living, polite and intelligent, so there's not too much mystery there. That's a good thing!
I agree with 
I agree with r87 as well. I prefer quality over quantitiy.
I think DLers are wary of posting in threads about hobbits after the Prancing Ponies mess.
Hutcherson is not really that hot and he doesn't have any juicy gossip or rumors to discuss about him. Ergo a short thread R86.
Just the way it works.
He may not be muscle hot, but I find him really sexy in a weird way.
I like that josh isn't being overexposed either like Efron and lautner. He attends events but they are big ones like the white house dinner and Glaad awards.
Yeah although he will be attending the MTV Movie Awards. Then the Teen Choice. Yuck.
I will not tolerate an unkind word being said about this amazing young man.
You have been warned.
I'm shaking my fist at you, yes you
Is everyone voting for him to win the MTV Movie Award for Male Performance??
T. Lautner (snubbed and resentful about it)
Well, he could have shaved for the Correspondents Dinner.
Did he interact with anyone at that dinner? The only pics I could find we're of he and Diane Keaton/woody harrelson.
His face has planes? It looks round and mushy to me.
face has remarkable planes. they're changing, hardening a bit, as he ages but still looking good.
He was terrilble in Hunger Games. That movie had a lot of problems but Jennifer Lawerence was such a great Katniss, how did they fuck it up so bad with Peeta?
Does anyone else think the whole "straight but not narrow' thing is a bit of a front. Kind of his way of being pro-gay without having to damage his career by coming out himself?
His last "girlfriend" was Vanessa Hudgens, who famously dated Zac Efron. (Inset your own joke) Now, the paps are saying he's dating a girl from a nickelodeon teen show named VICTORIOUS that happens to also co-star "straight but not narrow" founder Avon Jorgia, who is Josh's best friend.
I'm not saying he's gay or straight, but it does seem like a clever coup.
We probably won't know either way till he is 40 like Ricky Martin, ect
[quote]Does anyone else think the whole "straight but not narrow' thing is a bit of a front.
Meet him, he's ADORABLE.
[quote]Does anyone else think the whole "straight but not narrow' thing is a bit of a front.
I think it has the potential to become the new dreadful 'no H8' campaign (you know, where minor celebs have their mugshot taken with tape over their mouths). Though I do hope it doesn't become that way.
no wonder he looked so familiar i mean i haven't watched the hunger games yet but i remember journey to the center of the earth and loved him in it !!
love his jawline ..he reminds me of a less attractive version of matt bomer
[quote]Does anyone else think the whole "straight but not narrow' thing is a bit of a front. Kind of his way of being pro-gay without having to damage his career by coming out himself?
No, but I bet more straight celebrities would me more vocally Pro-gay if it weren't for idiots that assume this kind of warped logic.
[bold]Josh Hutcherson buys Heath Ledger's 'tree house' in the Hollywood Hills[/bold]
Josh Hutcherson has cemented his place in Hollywood, purchasing a home formerly owned by the late actor Heath Ledger, located in the Hollywood Hills.
The 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom home was built in 1951 and is referred to locally as the "tree house," due to the dense surrounding foliage and large deck area with an outdoor screening room, grill and fire pit.
The 19-year-old actor, who plays Peeta Mellark in the hugely popular franchise, "The Hunger Games," has not commented on the purchase.
The property, which is located on nearly an acre of land, was listed at $2.9 million in September, though it is unclear whether the young actor paid the asking price. Other features include a vibrant garden, modern kitchen and spacious bedrooms.
Ledger, who died of an accidental drug overdose in January 2008, bought the property with his then-girlfriend Michelle Williams in 2005, from talk show host Ellen DeGeneres.
Last year, Hutcherson appeared in the film "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" as Vanessa Hudgens' love interest. He has also appeared in the films "Journey to the Center of the Earth," "Bridge to Terbithia," "and the Oscar-nominated movie "The Kids Are All Right."
Hutcherson was romantically linked to Vanessa Hudgens. The pair finally admitted that they had dated in an awkward interview on an Australian morning talk show in January.
Hutcherson recently made headlines after undergoing surgery to fix a deviated septum. He was photographed with bandages on his nose.
He Tweeted of the surgery, "just had surgery to fix my broken nose. Recovery sucks...thank god for a marathon on lifetime...#theclientlist."
