AceShowbiz - %cJosh Hutcherson% had an embarrassing experience while filming festive flick "The Polar Express" with legendary %cTom Hanks%. On Wednesday, November 22, "The Hunger Games" star told %cJames Corden% on "The Late Late Show with James Corden" that he accidentally farted in Hanks' face.

"I had the most embarrassing moment, I think, of my entire life. I haven't really told anybody until now," the actor began. "We're shooting this scene where he's playing the hobo and he's on top of the train, skiing down, and I'm nestled under him, and we're like, 'Whoa, this is crazy.' And I farted.

Hutcherson was only 9 years old when he was filming the 2004 animated film, and it was the actor's first high-profile film. "It was crazy, it was my first big movie, I was like nine years old and I was working with Robert Zemeckis and Tom Hanks and all these people," said Hutcherson.
