Josh: If I'm not working and I'm home then I'm always on the go playing football or going out with my friends. I don't sit still much. (

Josh: I like my hair much better long. (

Josh: Working with Robin is like watching Robin do stand-up constantly! (

Josh: Filming Zathura was the best experience of my whole life. (

Josh: I feel much better here on Earth and much safer! (

Josh: I have a little brother and I understand how Danny got on his nerves. (

Josh: I just love to do anything physical. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about getting his start as an actor) I had to beg and beg my parents since I was 3 or 4 years old, and they said, "Why not play sports?" They heard all this negative stuff about Hollywood and being an actor. Finally, they opened the Yellow Pages and we met with an acting coach, and to this day, I have never had an acting class in my life. They tried me out there and suggested I go to pilot season in Los Angeles. I was so excited and begged and begged and begged, and so they took me out for one pilot season. I got a pilot, and things took off from there and never stopped. (

Josh Hutcherson: I got a lot of crap from kids in school when I first started acting. I didn't understand that, because it was something I loved doing, but I learned that you just don't let it bother you. I didn't understand what they were (

Josh Hutcherson: (about actress Charlie Ray, who played his love interest in "Little Manhattan") She was really, really good, and it was really cool because I was involved with this movie before it actually became a movie. They were still developing the script and everything. I was there to read with all the different girls, and I got to have my opinion on which girl. Yeah, the thing is, I said that Charlie was one of my favorites, so that was really cool. I was so shocked when I found out that was her first audition ever because she was really so good. (

Josh Hutcherson: (when asked about his favorite movie that he has filmed) That's really hard because I've really liked each of them for a different reason. All around, probably Zathura. That was awesome because of all the stunts and cool ways that they filmed it. They used 3 different sets. One shook like a 9.2 earthquake, one tilted at a 45 degree angle, and the other was still. Also, it was all in the same place so once we got there, we got to do cool stuff with the trailer for Halloween and Christmas and stuff like that. It was a lot of fun. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about his often-discussed crying scene in Bridge to Terabithia) I really did cry in the movie. It's what you have to do when you're in character. A lot of people want to know how I make myself cry like that. Well, when I was younger, I would just think of something really sad in my life and cry, but now, what I do is just really get into my character. If it's a situation where my character would cry, then I just think like I am them and make myself cry. (

Mark Levin: (co-director of "Little Manhattan," about Josh's audition) Josh was the first kid we met at the reading, and he so blew everyone away at the reading that he......
Jennifer Flackett: (second director) He made it impossible for them to say no. (

Josh Hutcherson: Yeah, that's what I love doing. I love doing roles and movies that are different from each other. That's kind of why I like to be an actor, because I get to play different characters and pretend I'm different people going through different situations. Getting to do different genres of movies means you're gonna have different types of situations and stuff like that. So I want to try and do every type of genre there is out there. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about his favorite part of filming "Firehouse Dog") Oh man, I think getting to work with the dogs. I love dogs. Getting to work with them on set every single day was awesome. The problem is that my dog got jealous. I was spending so much time on set with the other dog, that he was like, "Hey man, what's up? What's going on?" (

Josh Hutcherson: (when asked why he was attracted to the script for "Firehouse Dog") For some reason, it had such a great feel to me. It was unlike any other dog movie, because it had such a cool storyline. It was so different than any other dog movie I had ever seen and ever heard of. That's what really attracted me to it is that it was so unique. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about the movie "RV") Robin Williams played my dad; he is so incredible to work with. He never stops and never turns it off. I love to improvise, so working with him was so much fun because we'd start doing a scene, and it would never be the same thing twice. (

Josh Hutcherson: I love what I do, and I can't imagine ever wanting to do anything else, except maybe direct. So, as long as I am able to, I want to keep acting. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about Robert Patrick, his on-screen father in "Bridge to Terabithia") He is the most giving actor I've ever worked with. He's such a big inspiration to me. He's helpful and shares ideas and, being a younger actor than him, I can learn so much. (

Josh Hutcherson: Imagination is an important part of everybody's life. With today's kids, imagination is lost because kids play so many video games, and it's bad for that. My little brother plays a lot, and I was always outside playing Army, rolling around on the ground, playing with squirt guns and playing kickball. I think kids need to do that more often. (

Josh: I love New Zealand! There's a big volcano, and the sunrise is beautiful. (

Josh Hutcherson: I think the corniest souvenir I bought was a golden Oscar statue that said "Best Teacher," and I gave it to her when I got back to school. I think I was hoping she'd be nice and not give me too much homework! (

Josh Hutcherson: (about some rapping that he did for a special feature on the "RV" DVD) Well, actually, the rapping came before the acting. Only by a month or so. It's a long story, but the short end is that when I was around 9, I think, I opened for the boy band O-town. Well not all by myself, but, with Rich Cronin (lead singer for LFO). I did, like, two rap songs with him on stage in front of a few thousand people. It was awesome, but I think I'll stick with acting! (

Josh Hutcherson: (about "Bridge to Terabithia" director Gabor Csupo) Gabor is so awesome. He has the biggest heart of any director I think I have ever worked with, and he is just so caring; he's so nice. (edit)
Josh Hutcherson: (about watching his own movies) I am very critical of myself. I can never just sit back and enjoy the movie. I find myself critiquing myself a lot, like "I said that weird," or "That was a weird face," or "I have a funky hair thing going on there." Stuff like that just bugs me. (

Mark Levin: (director of "Little Manhattan") Josh is so game for anything that you put in front of him, and he's got an amazing acting style, which is that he just is "Johnny on the spot." You just say "Hit that window," and he says "How hard?" And he does it again and again. And he enjoys it, he's just having's just kind of indicative of his incredible commitment. (

Jon Favreau: (director of "Zathura," about Josh) He was a real, real pro. He had, was like, you'd think he was working for thirty years. He knew all his lines, his parents were very astute about how the way the set works and all that stuff, and he just brought a tremendous professionalism to the set. (

Cynthia Nixon: (Josh's on-screen mother in "Little Manhattan") Sometimes you just run across kids who are so grown-up. Josh is cute, but he is also smart and makes good choices. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about his favorite movie) It's really hard for me to answer this question. I get asked a lot about what my favorite movie is and why, and that's hard because it changes as I see more and more movies, plus it kinda depends on what kind of mood you're in. So, let's see, if I had to pick just one all time favorite movie, I guess it would probably be, this may sound crazy, but it's The Fast and the Furious. It's a fun movie to watch, and I love cars (

Josh: (about one of his most embarrassing moments) I was on a date, and we were sitting at dinner. I tried to put my arm around her; I was doing the yarn thing where you lift your arms up. As I did that, I hit the table and spilled a drink. (

Josh Hutcherson: Every time I read anything, whether it be a book, a script or anything, I automatically imagine myself as the boy in the plot. I don’t know why. Seriously, anything, if I’m reading a magazine article or whatever, I picture myself as the kid people are talking about. It’s really weird. I don’t know why I do that. (

Josh Hutcherson: Filming RV was so much fun. We had an amazing cast! We all got along so well, and since it was on location, we all did tons of stuff together away from the set and became great friends. Working with Robin (Williams) is like watching him do stand-up constantly! It was so unbelievable to watch him do amazing improv. What was fun was getting to improv along with him because I love to do that, and the fact that I got to do it with Robin Williams still blows my mind. (

Michelle Hutcherson: (about her son Josh) We work hard to keep his life as normal as it can be. He doesn't get to just go out and buy things. His three big purchases--a dirt bike, a laptop and a gas powered motor scooter--have been spread out over 18 months. Every kid around here has a motorized scooter, but he was the last kid to get one in our subdivision. We didn't let him at first. He kept working hard, and doing chores around here, so we decided to let him get one. We give him as normal of a life that we can. We let him be a kid. That's what a lot of people say to me-- he's so professional, yet he's still a kid. And I think that's because we let him be a kid. (

Michelle Hutcherson: (about seeing her son on a billboard for the first time) I honestly started crying when I saw the billboard. You never imagine that one day, your 11-year-old son will be on a billboard on Sunset Boulevard in the middle of Hollywood. Josh just started screaming when he saw it! (

Michelle Hutcherson: (Josh's mother) He bugged us so much. He wanted to do it. I have no clue why. We just thought, "He's a kid, he doesn't know what he wants." And finally, he just pushed and pushed enough that I said I'd look into it. And I did. And this is where it went, all of a sudden.

Chris Hutcherson: (Josh's father) Ever since he's been little, he's liked to perform for people. He has a personality that attracts people's attention. He does have talent. And it's part of a parent's responsibility--if your child wants to do something, support him whenever you can. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about the friends who have given him a hard time about his rope-swinging scenes in "Bridge to Terabithia") One of my friends said to me, "Dude, maybe sometime, do you want to go rope swinging or something?" And I didn't get it at first, so I was like, "What?" And he said, "You know, go rope swinging," I was like, "Where?" and he was like, "Oh, just any old river valley type of thing," and I was like, "Oh, shut up!" (

Gabor Csupo: (director of "Bridge to Terabithia," about Josh's emotional crying scene with Robert Patrick in the film) This scene is, again, amazing because I think we shot it only twice, and both times, those tears coming out of Joshua's eyes......they're real teardrops. It's not like we had to physically put them in there with the drop help, or CGI, or anything. These are his real tears. He really melted into this performance so deeply, that even his mom, on the set, was amazed by his performance. And she was saying, "I just don't know how he can do this. What was he thinking about?" He did, you know.....such an amazing emotional job on it. (edit)
Josh Hutcherson: (about "Zathura" co-star Jonah Bobo) Well, Jonah is an awesome kid. I have a little brother, so I'm used to hanging out with someone younger than me and how that all works. He was so much fun; it was actually hard to yell at him sometimes in the movie, because he's such a cool kid. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about his fans) They mean the world to me. Without the fans, I wouldn't have a job. When people hire you for a movie, they want to hire you because you're going to bring an audience to their film. If I didn't have people out there who enjoyed watching me as an actor, I wouldn't get hired. Nobody would want to see the movie! (

Josh Hutcherson: (about his future as an actor) Im not really sure yet. I'm going to kind of take the ride and see how it goes. I'm open to doing all sorts of things. I love doing comedies and dramas. Anything that comes my way, I'm open to it. If it's a good script and everything's right, I'll pursue it. (

Josh Hutcherson: I've learned a lot throughout the years that I've worked with all these great actors and everything. One of the biggest things I've learned on every shoot is patience. It takes so much patience to be an actor. There will be days when you'll come in at 6 in the morning, and you'll sit around all day long and maybe only do one shot. You just have to bear with them. You just have to keep your head on straight during that time. You can't get lazy or tired. You have to really make sure that you stay in character, even when you have those long days. (

Josh Hutcherson: I still live in Kentucky. I was born and raised in Kentucky, and I still live there. I think that's the best thing for me--to kind of keep a level head. When I go back home, I have a completely normal life. I have my friends, I'm on a basketball team, I go to the mall, and we just do normal kid things. It's kind of nice to kind of escape the whole movie world and just become a normal kid again. (

Josh Hutcherson: (about being an actor) It's not all glamour. I learned that right away. I thought getting into acting would be a breeze, and nice and easy. I thought, "How hard could it be?" I've done 11 movies now (as of 2007), and I've learned that every single character has different challenges. On set, it's not all fun and games. I have to do school and work long hours on set, as well. All that stuff kind of combines together. It's not as easy as it seems. That was the biggest shocker to me. (

Josh Hutcherson: Bailee Madison plays my little sister (in Bridge to Terabithia,) and as you can see, she is just the most adorable little kid on the face of the Earth! She was amazing in the movie. One day, I was playing and she was filming a scene, and I didn't realize that, and I saw her crying and I was like, "Bailee, what's wrong? Are you okay?" She's like, "Yeah, I'm just getting ready for my scene!" She's the most grown up little person I've ever met. I actually don't think I've met anyone like her in my life. I love her so much--she's like the little sister I don't have. (

Josh Hutcherson: I like both athletic girls and girlie girls. It depends on their personality. I like girls who can go out and play sports with me and throw the football around, but you don't want a girl who's too much tougher than you. (

Josh Hutcherson: I crack my neck and fingers all the time, but for some reason, whenever I hear someone cracking their ankles, I say, "Eww! There's something wrong with you!" (

Josh Hutcherson: I could not eat the stuff they eat on Fear Factor. The thought of eating bugs, worms or anything else alive is just gross! (

Josh Hutcherson: I used to have two imaginary friends named Hamo and Damo. One of them was pink, and the other was blue. I don't know why they were named Hamo and Damo, but we'd sing Barney songs together, as embarrassing as that is! (

Josh Hutcherson: I used to be obsessed with Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles when I was younger. So obsessed that every time I'd walk over a drain, I'd bend over and say, "Hi, turtles!" (

Josh Hutcherson: When I was like, 5 years old, I used to have really bad nightmares about the Wicked Witch of the West from The Wizard of Oz. In my dream, I would open my eyes and look out the window, and she would be there! I'd wake up scared to death, (

Josh Hutcherson: (about acting) This is it for me. I want to try directing too, whenever that comes. I have a book that I’m interested in, and I possibly want to try to adapt the screenplay myself. I figure I can adapt a book and then have somebody come in and completely fix it for me. But, you know, I want to try some directing someday, and I am definitely going to stick with acting (
