Mystery solved! The “broken” nose for which Josh Hutcherson recently went under the knife didn’t get smashed in a bar fight or a car accident  baby, it was born that way.

Josh recently tweeted that he was in recovery after surgery on his broken nose. Turns out, he meant “broken” in the sense of “non-functioning,” not “violently fractured.” TMZ caught up to Josh, who provided a clarification: The surgery was to correct a deviated septum, which had left his right nostril 90% blocked his whole life.

Sounds uncomfortable! We’re glad the surgeons were able to untangle his nose innards and set his septum on the straight and narrow. Also that he didn’t get injured in an underground boxing ring or whatever. Take care of that pretty face, Josh. Hunger Games sequels require its services.
