“Hunger Games” star Josh Hutcherson, who plays the Peeta point of the franchise’s central Peeta-Katniss-Gale love triangle, discussed the development of that romantic dynamic in the “Catching Fire” sequel during an interview with “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” on June 19.
“I can’t divulge any kind of plot details,” he said, “but it’s up and down. Katniss and Peeta’s relationship is very complicated. It has a lot of little things that need to be worked out, but it’s good. People, I think, will be very satisfied with it.”
Hutcherson, for one, certainly doesn’t mind locking lips with co-star Jennifer Lawrence, who plays bow-toting heroine Katniss Everdeen.
“I’d say there’s a natural stirring that happens in your body,” the actor admitted. “If you’re in the moment and you’re in the scene, then naturally whatever naturally happens is what’s supposed to happen.”
