Jennifer Lawrence can add another title to her resume: great kisser.

Or so says Josh Hutcherson, her costar in The Hunger Games franchise, who recently opened up to Cosmopolitan about her smooching skills.

“She’s a great kisser – so, yup, the bar is high,” Hutcherson, 21, told the magazine, per MTV UK.

As for his own skills, Hutcherson said, “On a scale of one to 10, I could be in the upper nines. Eight-and-three-quarters to nine-and-a-half. God, just give a regular answer! Why do I have to be so complicated?”

Fans can look for their latest on-screen smooch when Catching Fire, the second installment of the wildly popular franchise, is released Nov. 22. Lawrence, 23, plays Katniss Everdeen to Hutcherson’s Peeta Mellark and can also be seen locking lips with Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale Hawthorne.

Hutcherson played it coy when asked whether their on-screen romance sets high expectations for any real-life dates.

“I understand that. She’s definitely many a man’s desire,” he told Cosmo. “For me, she’s like a best friend and a sister, so it’s a little bit incestuous.”
