Hunger Games: Catching Fire finally opened and, as was expected, it broke box office records. Now that stars Jennifer Lawrence, Liam Hemsworth, and Josh Hutcherson are basking in post-opening bliss, we revisited our boy J-Hutch's biggest moments during the publicity blitz.
Whether it's a bromance or simple admiration, Hutcherson is quite open about his affections for the same sex. In fact, the actor recently opened up about his sexuality in an interview with Out. "I would probably list myself as mostly straight," Hutcherson says.
If that's the case, any one of these men would be the perfect suitor for his less-than-straight self:
4. Lenny Kravitz
In a recent interview with BET, Hutcherson says his ‘gay crush’ is Kravitz (Cinna in The Hunger Games).
"[Peeta and Cinna] so different," he says. "I'd probably say Lenny. Only because, like, the cool, like, artist kind of thing. And he's just rock and roll through and through. That is just... he's got it goin' on."
3. Ryan Gosling
Even though Gosling and Hutcherson haven’t worked together, it hasn’t stopped Josh from publicly admiring the Drive actor from afar.
"I'm a big fan," Hutcherson tells Elle. "I like his subtleties and how he really internalizes a lot of the emotion. And for me, that's kind of my style. So, he's definitely a big person to look up to."
Hutcherson likes Gosling so much he named his puppy after his character in Drive.
"I'm obsessed with the movie Drive, and Ryan Gosling's character was named Driver," he tells Us Weekly. "I always thought it was a good name for a dog so it just kind of worked out."
2. Liam Hemsworth
It's no secret that Hutcherson and Hemsworth have a major bromance going on. The two instantly bonded while making the first Hunger Games film.
"Like, 'Yeah, man, let's move in together! Let's do it!' Something like that," Hutcherson says of the idea of living with Hemsworth. It was Josh who also suggests that he, Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence have a threesome. We have a feeling that somehow Lawrence would get in the way.
1. Sam Claflin
Even though Hutcherson shares a bromantic bond with Hemsworth, Lawrence revealed that Hutcherson’s also crushing on Claflin (Finnick in Catching Fire). She's been telling the press the two are in love.
"You know there are just times when you meet people in your life and it clicks instantly?" Hutcherson asks. "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."
Watch out Liam, there’s a new man in town and the two are going public!
Yet, we almost forgot that Hutcherson told us that "in a fucking year, I could meet a guy and be like, Whoa, I’m attracted to this person." Sadly that means none of these men have turned him. Until he does, we’ll just have to enjoy fantasizing about the next man he crushes.
