Josh Hutcherson talks wrapping up 'The Hunger Games' franchise, Project Imagination and more


In an interview with ABC News promoting Canon’s Project Imagination, actor Josh Hutcherson talks fame, wrapping up The Hunger Games franchise, and more.

On being recognized in public:

“Everyday that I go out, there may be five people that recognize me and ask for a picture,” he said. “It’s crazy and intense because I don’t want all that attention, I just want to make movies, but you cope with it. And truthfully, it’s not that bad.”

He joked, “If I go to a store across from a high school and school gets let out, then I’m in trouble. But If I’m walking down the street in a not-so-young kind of area, I’m okay.”

On finishing the franchise:

“I’m going to miss just being with everyone that much,” he said. “We are all still close and see each other on a fairly regular basis. When you are filming, it’s 12 plus hours a day for months at a time. It’s kind of sad, because you had such a great time making them, now it’s coming to a close. But also, I think everyone is ready to move on to the next stages of their careers and lives and everything.”

As for what he won’t miss.

“I’m excited to shed the blonde hair!” he said. “That’s the thing that I was like, ‘Get out of here!’ Having to do touch ups all the time and get my hair redyed and bleached, was not my thing at all.”

On Project Imagination:

“For me, the most exciting thing about it, is getting to hear and see these stories from people who never otherwise would have a chance to make a film out of their life. I get to play them in a potential short film,” he said.
