Our poor boy Josh Hutcherson sure is having a rough week when it comes to interviews. First Jay Leno embarrassed him on national TV for not being a pro-athlete, then Clevver TV posted an interview with him where he shares his super-depressing prom memories. Can we at least wait until The Hunger Games isn’t in theaters before we start ruining his life?
Last year J. Hutch spoke to Clevver TV about his movie Detention and revealed that his prom didn’t exactly live up to movie expectations. Or even real life expectations. That’s because our child actor went to a prom for home-schooled kids. Which I guess makes sense because Josh was too busy making movies to attend a regular high school.
The story’s so sad and Josh Hutcherson’s so hot right now, that they reposted the interview yesterday so everyone can see it.( They also kind of mixed up the timing details in this clip so I’m not 100% sure when this interview happened, but I’m going to guess it’s from around the time that Detention came out in 2011.)
While his high school home-schooled prom may bring back awkward memories, I’m sure a million girls (and women) around the world would gladly take him to their prom to make up for it. In fact I’m sure a million girls would go all Hunger Games on their classmates to fight for the chance to take him.
They would probably just insist he show up to the dance wearing a tuxedo that smells of freshly baked bread. And that seems like a fair trade for Josh to get to go to a normal prom.
