Traisac, meanwhile, has mostly starred in Spanish television programs and movies.

Paradise Lost, which filmed in Panama and also stars Benicio Del Toro, comes out next year.

An insider tells Life & Style that the actor is romantically involved with Victorious star Ariana Grande. She plays Cat Valentine on that Nickelodeon sitcom.

"They've been seeing each other since the beginning of the year," a source tells the tabloid, adding that Grande even attended the Los Angeles premiere of The Hunger Games with her man, but didn't walk down the red carpet because "they've been trying to keep it low-profile."

I think I was [Team] Gale until he started getting a little too trigger-happy. Or maybe first Peeta and then Gale or Gale, then Peeta? I went back and forth. I flip-flopped.

Totally Together

But decide Katniss and company must, as Liam Hemsworth takes on the key role of Gale in the upcoming big screen adaption and Josh Hutcherson plays Peeta.

Vanessa Hudgens is currently in Australia, premiering Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, posing on red carpets, showing off various dresses. Oh, and answering awkward questions about her ex.

Indeed, the actress appeared yesterday on a local news show alongside Josh Hutcherson, her co-star in the film and, yes, her ex-boyfriend. Only no one told the anchors this relationship was over, leading to an awkward exchange.

"How long have you two been going out?" one asked, as Josh and Vanessa stared blankly at each other before handling the situation very, very well.

"We're not," Hutcherson said. "We were at one point, but she broke my heart... no, I'm just kidding."

Fast forward to the 3:30 mark if you wish to only watch this portion of the interview:

Josh Hutcherson turns 19 today. And it may be the final birthday this actor celebrates before he makes the leap to A-list status.

The young star, previously best known for briefly dating Vanessa Hudgens, has been cast as Peeta in The Hunger Games, a role that is sure to bring him a legion of rabid fans. Most of the female persuasion.

Hutcherson, Josh

Hutcherson has also appeared in The Kids Are All Right and Journey to the Center of the Earth. But neither of these films can compare to the popularity of The Hunger Games.
