The Peeta Mellark of 'The Hunger Games' is spotted out and about in Beverly Hills just five days after revealing on Twitter that he went under the knife to treat a broken nose.
Josh Hutcherson is indeed still recovering from a recent nose job. The 19-year-old actor, who plays Peeta Mellark in "The Hunger Games" and its sequel "Catching Fire", was photographed on Monday, May 14 sporting a huge bandage under his nose as he stepped out in Beverly Hills, California.
The actor, who once dated his "Journey 2: The Mysterious Island" co-star Vanessa Hudgens, reportedly was visiting his doctor for a follow-up appointment post-surgery. Dressed casually for the afternoon outing, he clad himself in a sweatshirt, shorts and a pair of flip-flops. He also hid his face under a Cincinnati Reds' baseball cap.
Hutcherson wasn't exactly hiding his nose surgery. On May 9, he informed his Twitter followers, "just had surgery to fix my broken nose. recovery sucks..." While he didn't say what caused the broken nose, the actor did admit that he's kept entertained by Jennifer Love Hewitt's "The Client List". He wrote, "thank god for a marathon on lifetime...#theclientlist thanks @thereal_jlh."
A representative for Hutcherson told TMZ that "The Vampire's Assistant" actor had been diagnosed with a deviated septum. Aside from that information, the rep kept mum as saying, "No further details will be released."
