Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson reveals reason behind gay rights campaign

Hunger Games' star Josh Hutcherson has revealed that his two late uncles are the reason behind his equal rights campaigning.

The 19-year-old actor has been working closely with 'Straight But Not Narrow', a group working towards equal rights for same sex couples wanting to marry in the US. Speaking to E!, Josh revealed that two of his uncles, who passed away from AIDS at the height of the epidemic, are his motivation fir campaigning.

Josh explained: "They were in their early thirties, in great shape, but unfortunately they were taken away from us too soon. Both passed away at about the time I was born."

Recalling a letter he received from a 14-year-old in Florida, he said: "He was in this very right wing and religious sort of area and he sent a letter saying how SBNN changed his life, and how he was able to feel more comfortable coming out to his friends. I was almost bawling reading it. That makes all our work worth it."

Josh continued: "This is what my family is most proud of and the same for me. Acting is one thing, but actually trying to change the world and the way people think to make people's lives better? That's the stuff I'm most proud of."

'The Hunger Games' has enjoyed one of the most successful box office openings in cinema history around the world.
