In an interview with Out magazine, the 'Hunger Games' actor says that maybe one day 'I could meet a guy and be like, 'Whoa, I'm attracted to this person.' '
Josh Hutcherson talks about sexuality in the latest issue of Out magazine, saying that he does not rule out possibility to be attracted to a man one day. The Peeta Mellark of "The Hunger Games" tells the magazine, "I would probably list myself as mostly straight."
Josh explains further, "Maybe I could say right now I'm straight. But who knows? In a [expletive] year, I could meet a guy and be like, 'Whoa, I'm attracted to this person.' " The 20-year-old actor, who is also an LGBT supporter, continues saying, "I've met guys all the time that I'm like, 'Damn, that's a good-looking guy,' you know? I've never been, like, 'Oh, I want to kiss that guy.' I really love women. But I think defining yourself as anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded."
The Union, Kentucky-born actor is passionate about speaking out against homophobia. He cofounded a youth organization "Straight But Not Narrow" which aimed at teaching kids to support everyone regardless of sexual preference.
"I have this dream that one day, my kid's gonna come home from school and be like, 'Dad, there's this girl that I like, and there's this guy that I like, and I don't know which one I like more, and I don't know what to do.' And it'd just be a non-issue, like, 'Which one is a good person? Which one makes you laugh more?' " he says.
LGBT issues are important to the "Paradise Lost" actor, whose two uncles passed away from AIDS. After their death, Josh's parents volunteered at local AIDS organizations. Josh was honored with Vanguard Award in 2012 by GLAAD for his contribution to the community.
