5 excuses to crush on Josh Hutcherson
You can bet that this sequel to 2008’s Journey to the Center of the Earth has more action, more heart and, most importantly, more of cutie Josh Hutcherson.
We caught up with the 19-year-old and had him dish on some behind-the-scenes secrets, co-star (Vanessa Hudgens!) surprises, and his real-life adventure. As if you weren’t already swooning for this sweetie, here are five more reasons to crush on him right now.

He's a romantic at heart. “I
definitely get a little sappy with that kind of stuff. I’m very
much the random bringing-flowers-to-a-girl kind of guy.”
