In the whole wide world, there is nothing better than Josh Hutcherson gushing about how much he enjoys his Hunger Games costar Jennifer Lawrence. Except maybe J-Law being so starstruck that she photo-bombs a video, but don’t worry — both things happen in this video, so you don’t have to choose.
Even though the two are just friends in real life, we already broke the news that Josh gets what he calls ‘stirrings’ when he kisses J-Law in the movies. And where probably most twenty-something costars would let their onscreen tension make things awkward between them in the real world, Josh and Jen have managed to create a really awesome friendship that I’m more than a little jealous of. They have a really incredible level of mutual admiration for each other, completely untainted by competitiveness or sexual tension. This is most likely because J-Law is the most laid back, BFF-able human being in the world, but also because J-Hutch says amazing things about her, like this quote about how he felt last award’s season when she was cleaning up shop:
“It was really amazing. I mean, it couldn’t happen to a more deserving, nicer, down to earth, truly talented person. Cause I feel like sometimes it can be a fluke, and [in this case] it’s not a fluke. She’s legit. The fact that she can go from doing Academy Award-winning movies to xmen to hunger games. Just, like, the versatility is inspiring.”
Yayyyy! Hurraaayyyy! Huzzah! I just love this. I love that they have such respect for each other. It makes me feel glad for the humans of the world, y’know? Like maybe we’re not all little version of Justin Bieber walking around pissing in mop buckets.
Plus, in the very same video, taken at San Diego Comic Con, J-Law gets so excited to meet Jeff Bridges that she literally runs away from him and then video-bombs his on-camera interview with excitement. How can you go wrong?
