>Hungry for More
The Hunger Games heartthrob talks about mastering the fame game—and going back to Panem
HOW HAS THE MOVIE CHANGED YOUR LIFE?
People built it up, so I thought everything would be turned upside down, but it’s not all that different. I get recognized more now, but my life has really maintained the same path.
SO YOU’RE USED TO THE SCREAMING FANS?
I’m getting more used to the feeling, but every time it still surprises me. Like, “Whoa, I’m just Josh. What are you so excited about?”
WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE FAN ENCOUNTER SO FAR?
I was in New York, and this girl gave me a letter all about how she’d gone through this hard time, but the books and film made her happy. It made me realize this was about more than just making a movie.
THE DVD IS OUT AUG. 18. HAVE YOU CHECKED OUT THE BEHIND-THE-SCENES FEATURES?
Not yet, but the die-hard fans are going to be thrilled. It’s just cool to see the whole process.
YOU START FILMING THE SEQUEL, CATCHING FIRE, NEXT MONTH. EXCITED?
I literally cannot wait. I’m looking forward to more conversations with everyone. I’ve missed them so much.
ANY HINTS OF WHAT TO EXPECT?
All I can say is that the script is so good, and it’s so close to the book. You know, Let’s go, let’s do it, I’m ready!
