Jennifer Lawrence's Nude Photos Make Josh Hutcherson REALLY Mad

Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson just seems like an all-around nice guy. Maybe it has something to do with him playing Peeta, but I don't know, every time I've read or seen an interview with him, I just get the impression that he's a solid dude. Anyone else? Hutcherson was recently at the Toronto International Film Festival to promote his new movie, Escobar: Paradise Lost, but instead of making it a me-me-me-fest, he took the opportunity to come to the defense of his good friend and co-star, Jennifer Lawrence, in regards to her nude photo leak.


The actor told reporters that the whole thing was just "f*ckin' horrible." Hutcherson apparently hasn't spoken to Lawrence since the Internet blew up with nude selfies of the star, but he said that "as far as how the public, Twitter, and media have reacted, it's awful." He also made a good point in saying that actors (who are "people, too, man") don't get into the field to be subject to scandals; they get into it because it's what they love to do.

"I don't want to have my private life looked into or have people think they deserve to know about my private life," Hutcherson said. "And then people say, 'Well, then you shouldn't have become an actor.' F*ck that. I didn't choose all that. I chose to be an actor. I was 9 years old! Do you think a 9-year-old is thinking about public scandal? I wanted to make movies." The guy's got a point. It's seriously doubtful that anything of this nature was on Jennifer Lawrence's mind when she was starring on The Bill Engvall Show.

Of course, there is the argument that if you don't want to be part of a scandal, don't, you know, take naked photos of yourself on your phone -- and I get that, really, I do. But think about all the people who, well, have naked photos on their phone. When celebrities take nude selfies, they're obviously meant for other people -- their significant others, people they're hooking up with, etc. It's kind of a bummer that something they did years ago, something that was meant for someone else's eyes, is subject to being worldwide fodder. I'm typically not one to feel bad for celebrities, but can't they have any privacy?

It was nice to hear Lawrence's Hunger Games co-star stick up for her after what's likely been a stressful few weeks for her, and again, he made some good points. But I'm not gonna lie: I can't help but wonder if he checked out her photos himself.

Do you think Josh snuck a peek at Jennifer's photos?
