“Hunger Games” Star Josh Hutcherson Says He’s “Mostly Straight,” Could Be Into Guys


Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson isn’t ruling out sleeping with guys, according an interview in the November issue of  Out magazine.

The 21-year-old actor reveals that he “would probably list myself as mostly straight” but admits things could change: “Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a fucking year, I could meet a guy and be like, ’Whoa, I’m attracted to this person.’”

Hutcherson grew up in Union, Ky., a small town close to the Ohio border, and his slouchy, chill California vibe is still tinged with a soft Southern accent. Everything he says sounds easygoing. “I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, Damn, that’s a good-looking guy, you know?” he says. “I’ve never been, like, Oh, I want to kiss that guy. I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.”

He’s certainly been there for the LGBT community in spirit—earning GLAAD’s Vanguard Award and co-organizing the Straight But Not Narrow campaign. campaign to fight bullying.

Hutcherson, who is dating Games co-star Claudia Traisac, also admits to a bromantic bond with  Sam Claflin, who plays Finnick in the red-hot movie series. “You know there are just times when you meet people in your life and it clicks instantly?” he says. “It was like that with Sam. I like people that just let me be myself, and I don’t feel like I have to try to be extra-fancy.”

Oh you wouldn’t even have to be medium-fancy with us, Josh.
