In a recent interview with KISS 92.5, Josh Hutcherson spoke about his reaction to the photo scandal that sadly affected co-star Jennifer Lawrence, as well as his thoughts on Mockingjay (he’s seen it!) and what trinket he stole from set!
You can hear Josh comment on the photo hack here:
Josh had a lot to say on the photo scandal:
“These are crimes,” he said of the massive hack. “These are absolutely crimes against human rights.”
“The fact that people react the way they do and look at that,” said Hutcherson, “It’s so unbelievably embarrassing to have somebody look into your private life,” he said. “It’s really disheartening to see that this is where the world of entertainment has gone and it’s gone that way because of greed and media and people feeling like they deserve something and have a right to something that they absolutely do not.”
On his reaction to Mockingjay Part 1
“I loved it. I’m so proud of it. I’m so glad that they split it into two movies because there’s so much that happens in that third book that if you tried to squeeze it into one two hour movie you would have lost so much,”
“It’s really dark, it’s really intense and the way you see how these characters try to recover and then build up a counterstrike against what they’ve experienced is really intense,” he said. “You’re absolutely going to love it.”
On wrapping the franchise:
“We’ve gone through some big changes together, just personally and professionally, that it’s hard to know that you’re not going to be 12 hours every day for months at a time with them,” said Hutcherson. “We’re still close, we’re still friends, we talk all the time — but it’s not the same so I’m definitely going to miss it.”
Josh also revealed the one prop he “borrowed” from set:
“I actually took the pendant that I gave Katniss — the one that opens and has the picture of her family, from that scene on the beach. I took that. It’s my one memento,” he confessed.
“It’s in my house in my desk drawer. I’m going to try to purposefully lose it — but in a way that I know I will find it in the future.”
