Josh Hutcherson can’t stop accidentally confessing that he has a crush on his Catching Fire co-star Jennifer Lawrence. Which works out perfectly for me because I needed another reason to start working on my Peenis fan fiction again. You know, just some inspiration that will get me away from people and back in front of my keyboard. This kinda quote is just the thing that ought do it. When speaking with Glamour magazine, he talked about the difficulties between being Jennifer Lawrence’s friend in real life and Katniss Everdeen’s more-than-friend in the movie.
GLAMOUR: You and Jennifer are friends in real life. Is it weird having to switch to a romantic relationship on-screen?
JOSH HUTCHERSON: It is. There are times when we’ve had to cut because we can’t get through a take without laughing.
GLAMOUR: So would you say it’s possible to be “just friends” with a woman?
JOSH HUTCHERSON: Absolutely, but there’s often a natural inclination to want more.
While he didn’t come right out and say that he has a crush on his co-star, he might as well have. The interviewer asked a simple yes or no question. He chose to follow it up with a completely unnecessary — but ohhhh so juicy and revealing — answer. It’s kinda like the time that he confessed that he got “stirrings” when he kissed Jennifer Lawrence. Dude can pretend all the live long day that they’re just friends, but the evidence that he likes her is mounting. Or growing. I don’t think they’re at the mounting stage yet. (Wink face.) All I have to say is that I hope the natural inclinations are ever in his favor. Mostly because we could use a good on-screen/off-screen romance in our lives. And yes, I do say our lives. What happens to J.Law and J.Hutch happens to all of us. Right? Tell me I’m not the only crazy person that’s going to spend the next few weeks leading up to the Catching Fire premiere living vicariously through them.
