Josh Hutcherson is set to appear in what could potentially be the biggest movie hit of the year, when he plays Peeta in The Hunger Games. Josh has been appearing in movies from a very young age and admits that it had a rather interesting impact on his childhood. Josh grew up switching between Kentucky and California, something that he really enjoyed.
Hutcherson explained, “Pretty much, growing up split between Kentucky and California was really cool for me because I has the best of both worlds. California, especially the Los Angeles area, is a very forward thinking, sort of modern place to live, whereas Kentucky is a little traditional. So to have a combo of the two was really nice growing up.”
He added, “Growing up I was a big Disney kid. I had all the Disney cartoons like Pocahontas, The Lion King and all those. One of my first movie memories I have, is being terrified of the wicked witch of the west from The Wizard of Oz.” We’re pretty sure most of you can relate to that. You can catch Josh Hutcherson in The Hunger Games when it is released on March 23 .
