Sadly, there are no rumors so far of a torrid affair between Gale and Peeta on-set, most likely because they are fictional characters whose romance exists solely in our minds. However, there have been several recent blind items alleging that there might be something of a Hunger Games hook-up going on between cast members. Yesterday Lainey Gossip hinted in part, “It was instant attraction when they started rehearsals, despite the fact that he’s supposed to be happily married. On set flirtation, some touching in the trailer, soon became after work ‘prep time’, and heavy petting in the car, and before long it was a full blown affair. May have been a method situation for him, which would surprise no one, but for her, even though she told herself this was a big girl, mature woman thing to do – take a co-star lover – of course she fell in love, although she obediently went back to her boyfriend and tried to shake it off he cut it off after three weeks as soon as his wife came over to stay.”
Meanwhile, Crazy Days And Nights had a much more direct blind item about a Hunger Games romance, teasing “What married Hunger Games actor is having an affair with his much younger female co-star? She is in love. To him it is just a hookup and he already has told others he has his eye on another female actress in the movie. Umm, what about your wife?” While it seems like everyone’s minds immediately assume it must be Jennifer Lawrence, let’s not forget that much of the female cast is on the young side, including District 1 tribute Leven Rambin…who is currently engaged. As for the identity of the married actor? Well, let’s just say there are few women alive who can resist the ancient charms of one Mr. Donald Sutherland.
