It's officialÂ—sort of. Twilight Saga's Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are definitely hotter than The Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson and Liam Hemsworth. At least that's what one of The Hunger Games' stars said in a recent interview. And does he have some 'splainin to do to his co-star!
Yes, in an Access Hollywood interview, one of the Hunger Games hunks did the unthinkable. When the wily Shauna Johnson steered the conversation to the fact that the Hunger Games' guys were "already being compared to a certain vampire and wolf," one of those very guys betrayed his studio, his co-star, and himself by declaring unequivocally that the Twilight guys were definitely hotter. Oops. So does this mean Josh Hutcherson owes Liam Hemsworth an apology? You can watch the video clip below and decide for yourself.
In all fairness to Hutcherson, he tried to do the right thing and sidestep the question. When Shaun asked him outright which hunks were hotter, he replied:
"You can't ask me that," he laughed. "I'm in The Hunger Games. That's not a fair question. You should ask somebody unbiased."
But, alas, fair question or not, when pressed Josh blurted:
"...I'll choose the Twilight guys every time!"
So there you have it. Josh Hutcherson thinks Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner are hotter than Liam Hemsworth and himself. False modesty or honesty? Only Josh knows for sure. Either way, perhaps he should have followed his not-so-hot co-star Liam Hemsworth's example. When Johnson asked Liam, at approximately the 0:31 mark, his thoughts on the Twilight guys vs. Hunger Games guys comparisons, he sidestepped the question far more deftly than his buddy Josh.
"It is scary," Liam lamented, waving his hands and mimicking the sounds of a cerebral explosion.
That sort of says it all. But who do you think is hotter?
Note: Wonder how Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner would answer the same questions?
