People’s Sexiest Man Alive issue has been released, with Channing Tatum taking the gold crown of ‘Sexiest Man Alive’. However, Hunger Games hottie Josh Hutcherson is also featured in the issue, under Sexy Guys Who Love Their Dogs.
Under his name and picture, there’s a brief passage, saying, “The odds were ever in Driver’s favor when the pit bull was rescued by the Hunger Gamesstar earlier this year. Just as attractive as the actor’s do-good mantra: He named his canine companion in honor of another eye-pleasing animal lover, Drive‘s Ryan Gosling. “I always thought it was a good name for a dog,” he told New York’s Daily News, “so it just kind of worked out.”
Hutcherson is currently filming the sequel to the Hunger Games, Catching Fire, in Atlanta and will be moving to Hawaii to complete filming before next week. In addition to Catching Fire, Hutcherson’s film ‘Red Dawn’ [also co-starring Chris Hemsworth], will be released November 21st.
Hutcherson is definitely considered a heartthrob to Hunger Games fans, especially as he plays the buff baker boy Peeta Mellark, who’s also the kind-hearted love interest to Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss Everdeen. There’s no question that he stole our hearts in the role, and it’s very clear why People has included him in their SMA issue.
