I en ny intervju med Vanity Fair pratar Josh bland annat om om att bli regisserad av Gary Ross, att jobba med Jennifer Lawrence och att spela in en så stor film som "The Hunger Games".

Josh Hutcherson on "The Hunger Games'" Peeta: "I've never felt more right for a character in my whole life"

Josh Hutcherson - the teenage star of "Bridge to Terabithia" and "The Kids Are All Right" - appears this spring in "The Hunger Games", alongside Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth. He talked to senior West Coast editor Krista Smith about being directed by Gary Ross, how he got the part, and his love for fellow Kentuckian Lawrence. Highlights - and view the trailer at the bottom of the chat.

Thank you for calling me in such a timely fashion!
Oh, I am a prompt person!

Especially in an actor, that's fantastic.
It's not very often, but there are some of us out there.

I remember you from "The Kids Are All Right" - I love that film.
Right on, thank you. That was a while ago. It was a good time, though.

Tell me about getting this role.
It was a very rigorous auditioning process. I've been a fan of the series for a little while now, and I went in and I met with Gary and Suzanne [Collins, the author of "The Hunger Games" books] and a couple of the producers initially, and I did a little audition. It was great, and I really hit it off with them and felt really good about it. And then a couple weeks went by, which were brutal. And then they brought me in to do a screen test, basically, with Jennifer, where I read with her... And then I had to wait another couple of weeks or so before I found out that I got the part. And that was brutal, after doing a screen test. I think it was actually about a week and a half, [and] waiting to hear anything was just, like, ugh. Because I wanted it so badly, and all that time just lying there, waiting to see what happens, was pretty rough.

Have you read the books?
I don't read a whole lot of books, because I'm usually busy reading scripts, but these books were so good that I literally read all three of them over the course of five days or something. I really powered through them. And while I was reading the books, my mind was being blown as to how much I felt like I was like Peeta, and how I felt like I could relate. I've never really felt more right for a character in my whole life. That, in a way, is kind of even more scary, because if you don't get hired, it's like, Oh my God, what am I? What am I doing? What's wrong?

And how is it working with Jennifer?
[She] and I totally hit it off. We're both very crazy people - we don't really hold anything back. Which is really great. We were able to have a really good time, and not let anything get in the way of it looking stupid or anything like that. We probably look stupid like 99 percent of the time, but we have a good time doing it - so it's worth it.
