Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence

He's acted in almost 30 films, but before last year you probably only knew Josh Hutcherson, 20, from his role as the son of a lesbian couple in 2010's The Kids Are All Right. It wasn't until getting cast as Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games — one third of the Katniss-Gale-Peeta love triangle — that he became paparazzi-stalked and face-on-a-T-shirt famous. As he and the rest of the world gear up for November's release of the trilogy's second film, Catching Fire, the Kentucky native (who is, honestly, the nicest) talked to Glamour about costars, chemistry, and dating in Hollywood.

What was it like being back on set with everyone? Jennifer [Lawrence] and I were nervous about our new costars because we're kind of crazy when we're together, so it can be a little scary for the new people. But everybody jumped right in. It was a fun vibe on set.

You and Jennifer are friends in real life. Is it weird having to switch to a romantic relationship on-screen? It is. There are times when we've had to cut because we can't get through a take without laughing. 

So would you say it's possible to be "just friends" with a woman? Absolutely, but there's often a natural inclination to want more.

What are your feelings about dating costars? You met your girlfriend [actress Claudia Traisac] while filming the upcoming thriller Paradise Lost. As far as I'm concerned, you're both actors, you understand each other's lifestyle, so it's a very natural thing to have happen.

How do you handle the pressures of fame? I don't think I'll ever get used to it. I have two-pointsomething million followers on Twitter, and if I say something, they all listen. It's crazy! I shouldn't be allowed that responsibility.
