Josh Hutcherson Is Super Supportive of His Girlfriend on Instagram
'Hunger Games' star Josh Hutcherson has had a thing for dating his co-stars, but who is his girlfriend now? Here's what you need to know.
Former child star Josh Hutcherson has captivated audiences with his work since day one. Between his roles in childhood classics like Zathura and Bridge to Terabithia, he's wowed audiences with his performances. His role as Peeta Mellark in The Hunger Games had fans torn between him and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne.
For such an enormous star, Josh has always kept private about his personal life. Who is his current girlfriend? Here's what you need to know about the woman that won Josh's heart — plus, his history of dating co-stars.
Josh Hutcherson is currently dating Spanish actress Claudia Traisac.
Only a year after he made his debut in The Hunger Games, Josh was linked to his Escobar: Paradise Lost co-star, Claudia Traisac. The couple met on set in 2013, but unlike some of Josh's other relationships, it took him two years before he confirmed the pair were an item.
Josh spoke about dating Claudia for the first time to E! News in 2015, though his words about their romance were few.
"It's pretty good," he said of their relationship. "Distance is hard, but we make it work."
Claudia also commented on their relationship that night, telling the outlet "I'm really happy... It's really great."
The pair is still going strong, as evidenced by Josh commenting sweet notes (in Spanish!) on Claudia's Instagram. On one May 16, 2023, vacation photo, he wrote, "eres tan guapa me muero fue un viaje y un grupo perfecto."
Despite their long-term commitment, the pair still isn't very public about their relationship. That said, Claudia is less shy than Josh to post photos of them spending time together, often tucked into photo dumps. Here's hoping we will know more about the nature of their relationship soon!
Josh has previously been linked to other co-stars.
While any rumor that Josh and Jennifer Lawrence were dating off-screen was false, Josh has been known to date some of his co-stars, even telling Glamor in an interview just as he began seeing Claudia: "As far as I'm concerned, you're both actors, you understand each other's lifestyle, so it's a very natural thing to have happen."
In fact, Claudia isn't the first co-star he's dated!
While filming Journey 2, Josh reportedly had a brief romance with Vanessa Hudgens. The pair were only together for a few months before calling it quits ahead of the movie premiere.
Josh was also linked to his Bridge to Terabithia co-star AnnaSophia Robb when they were both just teenagers. Since the pair were both so young, not much is known about how long they were together.
Josh's first public relationship was with Victoria Justice.
The star's most public relationship as an actor was his relationship with Nickelodeon star Victoria Justice. The pair was an item from early 2008 to the beginning of 2009, and they made multiple red carpet-appearances together.
