Josh Hutcherson Reveals His Most Embarrassing Hunger Games Moment (VIDEO)
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire SPOILERS AHEAD! Avert your eyes and look away if you haven’t read the second book.
In the words of Josh Hutcherson himself, The Hunger Games character Peeta Mellark just can’t seem to catch a break.
In a recent interview with MTV News, the Catching Fire star shared an embarrassing on-set moment that occurred during one of the novel’s most pivotal scenes.
"I have proposed to Katniss," Josh told MTV News. "It was good. Actually, funny story: When we shot it, the actual proposal itself is done where you don't hear what we're saying, so I was just saying gibberish while I was proposing to her on one knee. Actually, the very first time I went to get down on one knee my pants ripped right down the crotch. The worst thing that could happen when you're proposing to somebody is that your pants rip right down the crotch, and that's what happened to Peeta. So... he's doomed. He's doomed. Poor guy, he just can't catch a break."
Poor Peeta may not be able to catch a break, but at least Josh has a new BFF on set to ease some of that pant-splitting embarrassment.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will hit theaters on November 22, 2013.
