Sorry, ladies — Josh Hutcherson is off the market. The Hunger Games actor is dating fellow actress Claudia Traisac, Us Weekly can confirm. The two met while filming the movie Paradise Lost in Panama in March. Hutcherson, 20, and the Spanish star, 20, were spotted kissing in L.A. on June 22.
During their afternoon outing, Traisac wore her boyfriend's flannel shirt while taking a spin on the actor's Harley-Davidson. The new couple also shared a meal at Mendocino Farms.
Earlier this year, Hutcherson was falsely linked to One Tree Hill alum Sophia Bush by a tabloid magazine. "Star, I'm offended," Bush tweeted Jan. 17. "I hugged [actor Cameron Cruz] a in Hawaii, too. Don't leave him out of the fun! We all love Josh, but c'mon now." As it happens, the 30-year-old actress is currently dating Google Program Manager Dan Fredinburg.
Hutcherson was also said to be dating his Journey 2: The Mysterious Island costar Vanessa Hudgens in 2011, though the actress denied romance rumors. "Can't a girl have friends?" Hudgens asked during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "We just did a movie together and we had the best time." (Hudgens is currently dating The Carrie Diaries' Austin Butler.)
Hutcherson was more coy about the nature of his relationship with Hudgens, telling Seventeen, "Oh, boy. I don't know if 'dating' is the right word. She's awesome. We love being together. When I first met her, we really hit it off. We could be goofy and silly and not worry about anything except having fun. I adore her."
