Josh Hutcherson Flirts With Real Life Girlfriend Claudia Traisac In 'Escobar: Paradise Lost' Clip — EXCLUSIVE VIDEO
This Hunger Games' star isn't one to separate work from play, at least in the instance of his latest film, Escobar: Paradise Lost . Josh Hutcherson stars in the romantic thriller opposite screen legend Benicio Del Toro and real life girlfriend Claudia Traisac. The film centers around Nicko (Hutcherson), a young man from Canada in search of a life of surfing on the beaches of Columbia. But when Nicko meets a woman named Maria (Traisac) from the local village where he lives, they quickly fall in love and begin a life together. But everything goes awry when Nicko meets Maria's uncle, the resident drug lord.
With an all-star cast and gorgeous, beach-side setting, it's hard not be intrigued with the film's premise, especially after the promise of some incredible on-screen chemistry (considering Hutcherson and Traisac can't seem to keep their hands off one another off screen, too).
Hutcherson is known for tackling a variety of roles, from 2010's The Kids Are All Right — where Hutcherson played the son of lesbian parents in search for his biological father — to bigger blockbuster fare, like The Hunger Games series. Hutcherson will next be seen in The Hunger Games: Mockingjay - Part 2, the final installment in the YA adapted films.
