Josh Hutcherson appears on the cover of April’s issue of Teen Vogue and the Hunger Games actor is looking dashing and dapper as he poses for an old-Hollywood style photo shoot.
Inside, the 19-year-old actor talks about nabbing the his starring role as Peeta in the wildly-anticipated The Hunger Games, being homeschooled, and a less-than-exciting prom experience.
“When I got the call that I got the role as Peeta I was literally speechless,” Josh recalls. “In that moment I was shocked, amazed and honestly it didn’t really sink in until I was on set for the first time, when I was finally like oh-my-god here I am with blonde hair in my get up. That was a huge moment for me.”
High school prom was definitely a less-than-huge moment. “I went to a home-school prom, which is about exciting as it sounds,” he laughed. “It was with a bunch of home-school kids in Kentucky. We went to the local church and stood awkwardly while they played music. That was the extent of that.”
