In District 12, owning a pet is a luxury families cannot afford.

But in Hollywood, celebs and their pets are often the talk of the town. Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games, recently revealed that he named his recently adopted dog “Driver” after actor Ryan Gosling.

Don’t see the connection? Let us explain.

Driver was the name of Ryan’s character in the 2011 movie Drive — a film even more violent than The Hunger Games

"I'm obsessed with the movie Drive," he told Us Weekly at the GLAAD Awards Saturday night. "I always thought it was a good name for a dog so it just kind of worked out."

We don’t blame Josh for his man-crush on Ryan. Have you seen the guy?!
