Transcript for Josh Hutcherson on Marriage Proposals From 'Hunger Games: Catching Fire' Fans
friday cannot come -- the fans cannot wait to see "the hunger games" sequel. And spend more time with leading man, josh hutcherson. He plays peeta, a sensitive warrior with the gift of gab. You can tell that josh is outside our door. Let's say good morning right now to josh hutcherson. Come on out, josh. Oh. Hey. How are you? How are you? Good to see you, too. You look good. And I'm like everybody else. You make me want more. It ends -- we follow her lead. The crew, the cast, the writing, everything, josh. And we hear how much fun you have on set. Is it true? It's so true. The cast and the crew, not only are they the most professional and greatest people to work with, they're so much fun. So nice. And just wanto have a good time and love making movies. And your character, peeta. I know. You're all grown up. It's true. Peeta, he matures a lot between the first and the second movie. Everything they went in the games together, really traumatizing. And that world forced him to grow up in a big way. That relationship that your character has with katniss, we have a clip right now. Some people have that love. And it's not returned. It's hard. I think in this movie, peeta realizes that he needs to -- he wants to support her. He loves her. He wants to support her and any way she can accept his support. If it's not more than a friend, he wants to be the friend to her. That's the perfect setup to this clip right here. "Catching fire." Here it is. I know it's not fair of me to hold you to things you said in the games. You saved us. I know that. I can't go on acting for the cameras and ignoring each other in real life. If you can stop looking at me like I'm wounded, then, I can quit acting like it. And maybe we have a shot at being friends. Everything about this, josh. And I loved hearing about how you wanted this role. When you went into the audition, what did you say? I said that I was -- I had never seen a character more like who I am as a person. And with peeta, it's a big way. He's loyal to his beliefs. And loyal to people around him. Something I've always aspired to be like. Andsome is something -- we root for you. We root for you with j. Law. Good. What is the relationship like? We hear what you see is what you get. That's the most amazing thing about her. With success and talent and everything. She's still the same person. And she's honest. There's no filter. You never know what's going to come next. You have to be on your toes. It's always a blast. You more than always hold your own. We set it up to our folks to ask you questions. We got so many in. How do you deal with popularity and fame? Has anyone thrown themselves at you? Dozens of them. I had a couple marriage proposals to people I never met. That's flattering but a little nearsighted I feel in some respects. A little ahead of ourselves. It's weird. It's a weird experience. People act like it's normal to have people screaming my names at premieres. And it's not. It happens more often now. But it's a wild thing. For me, it's about the people around you. It's about keeping your friends and family close. And people I've been lucky to be around my whole career, has helped me a lot. You have a tight family. You do. What you see is what you get. And fans come out. And they feel like they know you. There's a weird disconnect. When someone recognizes you, they have seen interviews, like just now. And they red your bio. You don't know the first thing about this person. A weird thing where they feel like they know you and they don't. It's awkward sometimes. I don't know how to react right now. You handle it very well. People are pretty calm. Are you like everybody else? When I watched the movie last week, it ends and I'm, like, like I said in the beginning, i can't wait for the next one. It's exactly like the books. I read the whole series in a week when I first heard of them. The movie is the same way. It's very exciting. The last ten minutes, oh, my god. I can't even. We whetted everybody's appetite. They're ready. You are always a delight. Thank you. And great having the cast come through here. I love how comfortable you are. Put your feet up. This is the everyday man. Josh hutcherson. "The hunger games: Catching fire" this friday.
