Because that Hunger Games juggernaut isn’t going to stop until we all have it tattooed on our foreheads, Josh Hutcherson puts on cute-boy clothes for Nylon and semi-pouts in a totally non-threatening way.
Josh Hutcherson featured in the March 2012 issue of Nylon Guys magazine.
On his Kentucky roots: “I have a couch on my front porch, Christmas lights up year-round, and a Jack Daniels pool table. I’m tried-and-true Kentucky blue.
On reading “The Hunger Games” books: “I tore through them in like five days – I loved it. And I loved Peeta. It was scary to me how much I connected with Peeta. He had this belief that no matter what circumstances you’re put into, you maintain being true to yourself, and that’s one of my golden morals. In this business especially, you have a lot of opportunities to be fake. When Peeta goes into the games, he’s not going to let it change who he is. And I’m going into the game of the acting world, and I’m not going to let it change who I am.”
On his desire to direct someday: “I’ve always wanted to get behind the camera, but it takes a lot of time. I don’t want to half-ass it.”
On lending support to Straight But Not Narrow: “To have a ‘manly man guy’ come out and say, ‘Yeah guys, being gay is totally cool,’ I think this is getting the message out there that it makes you more of a man to be comfortable with who you are and what you believe in.”
Wait… did he just call himself a “manly man guy?” Not that we don’t appreciate the support, Josh, but have a little self-awareness, son.
Still, it’s cute-boy clothes on a cute boy (not a manly man), which will certainly appeal to the 12 to 18-year-old female demographic, which is very keen on cute boys and the Hunger Games right now, apparently. Thus, cute boy, cute-boy clothes, and The Hunger Games all become more popular and these young girls will presumably run out into the street and throw money around in rapturous glee. Or something like that. All we know is, he’s taking his place in the marketing blitz poledancing line, and modeling cute-boy clothes sure beats having your face on a Big Gulp cup, right?
On second thought, those clothes are pretty boring. Clearly, they’re trying to appeal to dull girls between the ages of 12 and 18 with this one.
