What’s that thing where you read a quote out of context from a celebrity and choose not to find the context because you don’t want to kill the moment? Answer: what you’re about to read on this here site! Josh Hutcherson called into Ryan Seacrest’s show to talk about Catching Fire, the highly anticipated rom-com about one man’s attempt to catch his ex-girlfriend Fire and convince her they should get back together. Except he’s going to have to run a little faster because Fire’s an Olympic sprinter. (Sound familiar? It’s the sequel-ish to The Hunger Games! The movie about a team of sprinters who are always hungry because they’re training for the Olympics and are on a very strict diet.)
Obviously Ryan Seacrest asked Josh Hutcherson what it felt like to kiss his co-star Jennifer Lawrence. While I rarely agree with anything he does in interviews, I’ve got to hand it to him for asking this question. Haven’t we all wondered what it would be like to be close to Jennifer Lawrence? And I’m not even talking about kissing. I’m talking about being the same room with her. Preferably my room because we’re having a sleepover and she’s whispering secrets about Bradley Cooper into my ear as we paint each other’s toenails and write Silver Linings Playbook fan fiction.
While I assumed that J.Hutch would remain totally neutral when he answered, he instead started talking about stirrings. Something that I thought only existed in the magical world of The Giver (Sidenote: so excited for that movie!)
“I’d say there’s a natural stirring that happens in your body,” the actor laughs. “If you’re in the moment and you’re in the scene, then naturally whatever naturally happens is what’s supposed to happen.”
So just to paraphrase for you guys out there: Josh Hutcherson feels things when he kisses Jennifer Lawrence. AKA Peeta Mellark and Katniss Everdeen’s love is real. LONG LIVE PEENIS!
