During the White House Correspondents’ Dinner on Saturday, the Washington Post got one minute to get as much information from Josh Hutcherson as they could. And they got through quite a lot. Josh discussed sightseeing in the US Capitol, Washington DC, life since ‘ The Hunger Games‘, whether or not he was really “punk’d” on Punk’d and new ‘Catching Fire‘ director Francis Lawrence.
So has your life changed a lot since “Hunger Games”? Is there something palpably different?
Hutcherson: No. The run-up beforehand was a lot more crazy. Now it’s calmed down a lot. In the beginning, it was absolutely unreal. Now I’m just enjoying it.
And how do you feel about the new director, Francis Lawrence, for “Catching Fire”? Have you gotten a chance to talk with him?
Hutcherson: I haven’t met him yet, actually. But I’ve heard nothing but awesome things about him. I love Gary [Ross] so I’m sad to see him go. But I think at the same time, Francis is going to bring a lot to the table.
Hutcherson: I had a hankering that something was up. But I wasn’t fully aware of the situation until the very end.
You were suspicious.
Hutcherson: I have a pretty good intuition. I was able to figure out what was going on.
