In an interview with KISS 92.5, Josh Hutcherson talked about wrapping up The Hunger Games franchise, watching Mockingjay Part 1 and shares his thoughts on the recent criminal leaking of celebrity pictures.
On the photo scandal:
“These are absolutely crimes against human rights.”
“It’s really disheartening to see that this is where the world of entertainment has gone and it’s gone that way because of greed and media and people feeling like they deserve something and have a right to something that they absolutely do not.”
On ‘Mockingjay: Part 1’:
“I loved it. I’m so proud of it. I’m so glad that they split it into two movies because there’s so much that happens in that third book that if you tried to squeeze it into one two hour movie you would have lost so much.”
“It’s really dark, it’s really intense and the way you see how these characters try to recover and then build up a counterstrike against what they’ve experienced is really intense. “You’re absolutely going to love it.”
On wrapping the franchise:
“We’ve gone through some big changes together, just personally and professionally, that it’s hard to know that you’re not going to be 12 hours every day for months at a time with them. We’re still close, we’re still friends, we talk all the time — but it’s not the same so I’m definitely going to miss it.”
The prop he took home from set:
“I actually took the pendant that I gave Katniss — the one that opens and has the picture of her family, from that scene on the beach. I took that. It’s my one memento.”
“It’s in my house in my desk drawer. I’m going to try to purposefully lose it, but in a way that I know I will find it in the future.”
Thanks for the tip, DWTC!
