Josh Hutcherson was recently named one of the people that MTV is most thankful for, mostly for his contributions to the ‘Hunger Games’ as well as ‘Journey to the Mysterious Island’.
When he sat down for the interview with MTV, he said, "I had a lot of work that came out this year and was pretty successful thus far, so it was exciting for me. It definitely exceeded my expectations."
He also adds that because of the Hunger Games, he also had a lot of ‘firsts’ this year, saying, "I had a lot of firsts this year. I went to Paris, London and Berlin for the first time, so I got to see a lot of new places. I had a blast. The press tour was so fun with me and Liam [Hemsworth] and Jen [Lawrence] and [director] Gary [Marshall] flying all over the world together. ... Being with Liam and Jen was great because we were experiencing something brand-new to all of us. I think Liam had the most experience dealing with [a lot of press], just because of him and [his engagement to] Miley [Cyrus], but having really good people experiencing it with you made it a lot easier."
He also sounded surprised when Josh Horowitz [the interviewer] asked him why he was following Kim Kardashian on his Twitter, to which Josh replies, "I have my reasons. They are top-secret. I can't divulge my secrets." He also adds [jokingly] that he would like to meet Kim before the world ends this December, and also has hopes for 2013, saying, “There is the obvious that everybody will say, which is a better economy and a better America, so I hope for a better economy, a better America. Outside of that, we're shooting the next two 'Hunger Games' movies back-to-back, and then I'm shooting another 'Journey,' so as long as the world doesn't end, I have a busy 2013 coming up."
