'Mockingjay' Star Josh Hutcherson Compassionately Defends Jennifer Lawrence After Nude Photo Leak
In a very sweet, Peeta-like manner, Mockingjay's Josh Hutcherson defended co-star Jennifer Lawrence in the wake of her nude photos being stolen and leaked. Hutcherson took issue with the crime intself, and the people who shamed J. Law for it. “It’s f****** horrible," he told The Daily Beast. "I haven’t spoken to her since it happened, but as far as the public, Twitter, and media have reacted, it’s awful." The biggest problem Hutcherson had with the way everyone responded was how so many people blamed Lawrence. Countless accusations have said that if she didn't want this kind of stuff to get out, she shouldn't have signed up for the public life. But Hutcherson has a different take on things.
It's not surprising that Hutcherson defended J. Law. They may not be romantically-linked in real life, but the two actors are great friends off-screen and have been standing up for each other for years. In 2011, when Hutcherson came under fire from Hunger Games fans who weren't happy with his casting, J. Law stepped in to defend Hutcherson's acting.
And three years later, the pair still has each other's backs, so anybody still wanting to blame Lawrence for the nude photo leak better watch out for Hutcherson. You do not defame J. Law and get away with it.
