Jimmy Kimmel Gave 13-Year-Old Josh Hutcherson a Fake ID
While he was there, Jimmy Kimmel welcomed him to Hollywood in the best way ever. During an appearance on the show this week, Josh and Jimmy relived that moment, with the Hunger Games star saying, "Do you remember what you did? You didn't tell me where babies come from, but you did give me a fake I.D with what looked like the beard that you are now wearing," he said with a smile.
As for whether Josh ever tried to put it to use, he said with a laugh, "I almost got arrested a lot of times with that." Since it's tough to really relive Josh's throwback moment on the show without actually seeing it, Jimmy played the clip from his appearance just for fun.
In the clip, Jimmy asks 13-year-old Josh, "How did you wind up an actor when you're from Kentucky?" To which Josh replied, "Actually, I've kind of always enjoyed entertaining people since I was really young." To which Jimmy chuckled, "when you were young?!" Josh replied, "Like three...way back in the day."
Josh has done a ton of interviews since then, particularly since he signed on to star in the Hunger Games franchise. The thesp actually calculated how many interviews he's done for The Hungers Games franchise and made our jaws drop, telling Jimmy that from the time it began, he has done 1,680 four-minute interviews around the world "approximately."
Now that Mockingjay: Part 2 is hitting theaters Friday and the movie's premieres have wrapped up, he and the rest of the cast will finally get a break. Whew.
