As we were fanning ourselves while watching Nicholas Hoult play a weirdly hot zombie in Warm Bodies, we had to come to terms with the fact that this strapping young actor was the adorable young-un who helped Hugh Grant get the girl in About a Boy 10 years ago. Wow, we thought, what a pleasant surprise to see these cute child stars make good … and yummy. But really, we shouldn’t be that surprised. As we started combing back through the boy stars of the early 2000s, we discovered a nice number of them had made this transition quite nicely. From big movie names like Daniel Radcliffe and Bow Wow to TV stars like Shia LaBeouf and Zac Efron, these kids are making good — and are now totally legal and not at all creepy to stare at. Enjoy 15 of them in the gallery below:
This is one of those posts where we don’t want, or need, to write much, because all we want to do is squee! Lionsgate just released some stills from The Hunger Games next installment Catching Fire, and we’re loving these little sneak peeks. As y’all know, we’re solid fans of Sam Claflin portraying Finnick Odair, so the shot released a little earlier, of him trying to make Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) lose her concentration, made us go a little weak in the knees. The other two newly released shots include Katniss with Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) making a speech in what we think could be during their victory tour. The other is a behind-the-scenes look of the film’s director Francis Lawrence chatting with Lawrence and co-star Liam Hemsworth (Gale). Wonder what J.Law is grinning about? Enough talking, more pictures. How excited are you about the movie? We sure as hell are! Read more…
Looks like we’ve got a regular John C. Reilly on our hands! (Note: John C. Reilly is our benchmark for a versatile acting career. The man was in The Hours and Talladega Nights, so…) Deadline reported today that Josh Hutcherson is currently “negotiating” for the lead in Paradise Lost, across from, you know, Benicio Del Toro playing the infamous drug king pin Pablo Escobar. Does that seem weird to you? Does the film’s description: “Nick, a young Irish surfer who visits his brother in Colombia. There he meets the love of his life — until he meets her uncle Pablo”? Well, it shouldn’t. Josh has basically been cycling through every film genre imaginable since he started in TV movies a decade ago. It was only a matter of time he hit “Drug Action Thriller” after starring in genres like..
What’s that one scene in Catching Fire where Katniss looks like a total bad ass? Just kidding, that’s every single scene. Photos from the Hawaii set of the Hunger Games sequel are hitting the interwebs, so it only seems helpful to break down what America is looking at. Based on the fact our tributes are perched on top of individual platforms in the photos, it looks like we’re at the Quarter Quell. The Quarter Quell occurs at the very beginning of the 75th Hunger Games, the moment before the real good stuff starts. And the good stuff starts very quickly. Did you notice that somebody is wielding a trident?
After completing her high-fashion transformation into the heart-shaped face of Dior, Jennifer Lawrence decided to mix it up a little by losing the couture and going as a regular person for Halloween. Or she just wore her glasses and let her air dry. Either way, Jennifer stopped by the Netherworld Haunted House in Atlanta yesterday looking less like a spokesmodel and more like a senior during finals week, if that senior happened to be drop-dead gorgeous and the finals happened to be in Escaping A Terrifying Goblin 101, The History of Mutant Pumpkins and Introduction To Weird Bloody Scarves.
Two things the doubters doubted: That Peeta Mellark would make it to his 20th birthday, and that Josh Hutcherson would make a convincing Peeta Mellark. Well, I guess I won’t spoil Peeta’s fate for the five of you out there who haven’t read the entire Hunger Games trilogy, but we’re so pleased that the latter came true this year. We imagine the adorable star is probably celebrating his 20th birthday today while surrounded by evil monkeys and electrocuting lakes while filming Catching Fire, so it’s up to us to fete him in a more, well, comfortable manner. We’re looking back at his 20 hottest looks — from casual awards-show looks, to fierce gun-toting on Red Dawn, to dapper red carpet suits. Take a look and tell us you don’t wish he’d come over and decorate a cake for you sometime.
Okay, for the next Spider-Man reboot, it’s all Donald Glover. We haven’t forgotten you, dude! The reboot after that, however, should star Josh Hutcherson, who clearly demonstrates that he has all the web-slinging, book-dropping, meathead-pummeling moves in his Spider-Man audition tape. On an unrelated note, if you see a guy throw your friend to the ground, jump twelve feet into the air and then backflip into a three-point stance…maybe you shouldn’t keep trying to fight him? I know bullies aren’t the brightest bulbs in the package, but jeez. On a very related note, those glasses! Eeeeee! Alternate film casting history squee!
Unearthed from the bowels of YouTube by Crushable today, Hutcherson’s fighting demo for the film appears to be dated March 8, 2010. Which means if we got a time machine and traveled back with a DVD of the Hunger Games…no, that wouldn’t be right. Andrew Garfield ended up doing an amazing job with the role; we just need to make more Amazing Spider-Mans to accommodate all the actors we want to see fighting bad guys and kissing upside-down. We mean, they were probably going to reboot it that many times anyway! Amazing Spider-Mans for everyone! On, and in case we didn’t make it clear…those glasses!
There’s nothin’ like a dude in a well-cut suit. Scratch that — there’s nothing like a dude in a well-cut anything. Which is why we love this selection of looks that these 10 male celebrities wore to the MTV Movie Awards. A lot of styles were represented. We had classic with Chris Hemsworth in a waistcoat and shirt. That man is so incredibly handsome. Andrew Garfield wore a tie and skinny pants, whileMario Lopez put on a blazer and V-neck. We had the bad boy in Diego Boneta who looked sexy as hell in leather jacket, and hipster, with Josh Hutcherson in a pork pie hat and sneakers. Andy Samberg toed the line between formal and casual, with a blazer teamed with kicks and a casual T-shirt. Perhaps the most eye-catching look of all came courtesy Joe Manganiello who wore a stripper-friendly fireman’s outfit on stage. Hello, abs! Take a look at the gallery below for all the hotness.
It’s gotta be nice to be a teenage celebrity. If your parents tell you to turn your music down, just go out and buy your own house! Yes, while the rest of us were worrying about cleaning our rooms, these fresh faced actors and actresses are splurging on pads of their very own. Hunger Games hero Josh Hutcherson just shelled out some serious bucks to own the Hollywood Hills “tree house” once owned by the late great Heath Ledger. The 1,861 mansion set him back $2.995 million and boasts 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and an outdoor theater nestled in the sycamore trees!
Of course, the 19-year-old isn’t the only teenage multimillionaire that’s got a crib of his own. Justin Bieber just recently spent over $6 million on a massive estate on the outskirts of Los Angeles. Country-pop princess Taylor Swift also has a swanky Beverly Hills home to her name, as do former Disney stars Miley Cyrus and Demi Lovato. Head down to the gallery below to see more incredible homes of teenage stars. As if you needed another reason to be jealous of these guys…
Hate to admit, but we’re kind of with TMZ on this one: It is just a wee bit disappointing to learn that Josh Hutcherson didn’t break his nose in a dramatic Hunger Games arena re-enactment, in a street fight to protect a damsel in distress, or in some kind of rough sport accident.
“It’s a deviated septum. I was born like that. I was 90 percent blocked in my right nostril and stuff,” he told the gossip site’s cameraman while walking in Beverly Hills yesterday. “I just gotta get it healed up and everything.”
This kind of contradicts what he tweeted last week about recovering from a broken nose, doesn’t it? Or, maybe he just meant that they had to break his nose to fix it? Well, we hope that while the surgeon was helping Josh breathe, he didn’t do anything to “perfect” his schnoz. That tiny bump gives him character! Read more…
