Josh Hutcherson makes a somewhat startling confession in the latest issue of Out:
He could see himself having sex with a man someday.
“I would probably list myself as mostly straight," says the Catching Fire star. “Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a f-cking year, I could meet a guy and be like, Whoa, I’m attracted to this person.”
Hutcherson - who is dating actress Claudia Traisac - admits that he can recognize a handsome member of the same sex.
But he's never wanted to do more than admire him.
“I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, Damn, that’s a good-looking guy, you know?” he explains. “I’ve never been, like, Oh, I want to kiss that guy. I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.”
Hutcherson has been an outspoken advocate of the LGBT community for a long time, having opened up in the past about two gay uncles who died of AIDS and earning GLAAD's esteemed Vanguard Award in 2012.
“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,'" the actor said, adding:
"And it’d just be a non-issue, like, ‘Which one is a good person? Which one makes you laugh more?’”
As for his Hunger Games character of Peeta? Who is in a love triangle with Katniss and Gale? Would he ever consider a threesome? Sure, says Hutcherson!
"I know Peeta would be into it, for sure. He’s very sensitive, in touch with his emotions. I think it really might solve a lot of their problems. You know what? I’m going to pitch that idea. Let’s make it a – what’s it called when three people are in a relationship together? A triad? That’ll go over well with Middle America."
