      It’s like they switched suits as a joke at the last minute.

    • tereliz

      Liam, that is one too many man-bracelets, son.

      • MandyM

        They are friendship bracelets. One for Katniss, one for Miley….

    • Nicholas

      SHAVE YOUR NECKS, you muppets.

      • DebbieLovesShoes

        Thank you. Seriously…. they had ONE THING to do, to get ready.

        • Cordelia_Gray

          Right? Why are neck beards a thing now? They make me irrationally cranky.

          • DebbieLovesShoes


    • kimmeister

      Why are they both so rumpled? Did they have to tumble down a hill before arriving?

      • Lanus

        I can’t even work up the energy to imagine some Gale/Peeta slash action in the back of the limo. Boys? No.

      • AnguaVonUberwald

        That is the best thing I have read all day. Seriously, I am still giggling, imagining them rolling down the required hill.

    • foodycatAlicia

      Did Josh’s hair go darker since yesterday?

    • Bridget Smith

      SERIOUSLY, was the photographer DRUNK? That last photo of Josh – OY.

      Oh, yes, boys/clothes. I love that three-piece suits are having a moment, but I don’t like the look of them in that fabric. Tom Hiddleston had a similar problem recently. This flimsy matte nothing-fabric makes the three-piece suit look boring, which makes me sad.

      • gabbilevy

        The ones of JLaw from the same event are just as bad. Someone spent too much time on the back of the Instagram-as-photography bus. A crazy angle does not a good quality photograph make.

    • Saturnine

      Why is everyone so messy?

    • algaechick

      Is Josh Hutcherson going bald and he’s doing a forward-comb in an effort to hide it? Because that’s the only reason I can come up with for his continued hair tragedy.
      Also, beards work well on Hemsworth faces.

      • another_laura

        Yes, the ominous beginnings of a comb-over. Somebody make him stop before it reaches epic Trumpian proportions!

    • kirkyo

      Both killer suits but too bad about the wrinkles. Too much bro-hugging in the limo I’m thinking.

      These two have looked mostly great on their premiere junket IMO.

    • diane {a spot of whimsy}

      I can’t believe there’s supposed to be a viable love triangle between these 2. Josh is so…icky.

      Also, I’m surprised the press tour for this movie hasn’t made a bigger show of pushing the actor playing Finnick on us. I’m barely hearing anything about him and he’s rarely in the photo-ops. I really thought they’d push the “new man candy” who is “arrogant with a heart of gold blah blah” angle with him.

      ETA: that’s not a TLo criticism for not featuring Finnick btw (though I wouldn’t mind it, he’s yum), I meant the Catching Fire publicity circus hasn’t been featuring him like I assumed they would

      • Bridget Smith

        Aw, I am Team Gale and Team Liam, but I think Josh seems delightful. His photos with Jennifer Lawrence are hilarious/adorable.

      • MilaXX

        he was on GMA this morning. GMA has been featuring all of the stars this week. They also had Jeffrey Wright & Jenna Malone on this week.

    • Imasewsure

      I hate these boring suits (although it’s nice of course that they both dressed up)… Color gentlemen… color!!

    • jspark

      It seems cruel to force Josh Hutcherson to stand next to Liam Hemsworth. It looks like one of the crew members one a contest and gets to join the handsome movie star on the red carpet.

      • Clueless_Jock

        I’m sure Hutcherson can hold his own next to Hemsworth.

        • sagecreek

          Not for some of us.

        • Aerialgreen

          Agreed, IMO seem to have a more approachable persona, could be wrong, but he really charmed me with his interviews even before the HG fame

    • nannypoo

      I do not get the appeal of this Hutcherson. He looks like an adolescent.

      • Madam Von Sassypants

        Pretty sure that’s the point in a movie trilogy about adolescents.

        • nannypoo

          Yeah, I get that, but lots of BKs have commented that they think he’s attractive and I do not get it. Liam, on the other hand, can pass for a person a cougar might go for.

      • Trickytrisha

        He looks like a high school wrestler.

        His lack of height is so much more apparent in these publicity pictures. I just wonder how the heck he got cast opposite Jennifer since she towers over him even without heels. He must be majorly bummed that Liam is on the scene now.

    • decormaven

      In the first look, the jacket appears too short on the torso. Second look is acceptable. Hope some color gets introduced soon for these fine lads. It’s all been a little too safe and boring.

    • lunchcoma

      Josh, stop with the vests already. That’s a look that’s better-suited for someone a little taller. Liam, press your pants. And both of you boys need to take care of the neck stubble. No one likes a neckbeard.

    • Anne At Large

      WTF happened to the little one’s jacket? This is a bazillion dollar franchise, kid and you look ridiculous in that thing. Did the cleaner shrink it and you didn’t realize until too late? Willis it the F up, son!

    • jjtxgrrl

      Yay! Sausage Fridays!

    • MilaXX

      Josh – Bad hair, boring shirt & tie, once again pants too long, he really should stop wearing 3 piece suits.
      Liam – once again pants sitting too low, boring shirt & tie, needs to remove the love bracelets.

      Side note – not sure if it’s the photo service or what, but these pictures look odd as well. not pixelated like JLaw’s, but I don’t know low rez or something.

    • Crystal

      Just say no to neck beard, Liam.

    • cakecakecake

      Liam could still get it though

    • slizzy

      Aw, my inner fifteen year old finds Josh and his brown eyes to be dreamy, in a nonthreatening way. He really does need to lose the vests, though.

    • sagecreek

      Okay, younger kittens, is it just that I’m old and cranky? Do any of you find the neck beard thing alluring? Anyone? Bueller?

      • lunchcoma

        I’m too old for either of these boys, but have a sister who’s close enough to that age. She despises neckbeards and uses the term as an insult. I think this is laziness, not a new fashion trend.

      • Puckndc

        No…I wish neck hair would just go away…bleck….

    • Meg0GayGuys6

      Do they just show up for the photos or do they actually have to watch the movie at each premier?

      • sagecreek

        I think they dodge out the back door.

    • tintashoopa

      Yuk all around. Definitely shave please. Josh’s beard is so thin he looks like a kid just hitting puberty. Plus Josh’s suit is so stiff it looks like he is stuck in one spot. I’m amazed he had the flexibility to lift his arm up for that strained wave.

      Even though as a child star, Josh has been going this for a while he looks SO uncomfortable in the spotlight.

    • boweryboy

      Bland and blander.

    • Fordzo

      Ummm, Peeta? Is that a loaf of bread in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?

    • quiltrx

      Why does Josh look so damned rumpled? I like the details of the suit, but I feel like I can’t view it properly when he’s all hunched up and weird in it.

    • Jacob Bowen

      Josh looks like he’s playing dress up in dad’s suit, and Liam looks…well, still good enough to do unspeakable things with.

    • Guest

      It’s gotta suck for anyone to be on the same poledance as Liam Hemsworth. I mean, he’s so good looking it’s an “always number two” situation.

    • mrspotts66

      they’re both so rumply. sad.

      • Anplica Fiore

        Just thinking the same thing. Shave & press those suits, boys!

    • Deborah Lipp

      Little Peanut Man should avoid neckbeard.

    • HobbitGirl

      Them Hemsworths sure are pretty folk.

      But neck beard, not okay.
