star Josh Hutcherson
is only 22 years old, but his Hollywood rise began more than a decade ago. We're taking a look back
at Josh's rather impressive career (so far!)
We first met Josh back in 2003, when the 10-year-old actor landed major back-to-back roles in the animated features Howl's Moving Castle and The Polar Express.
In 2005, he nabbed his first big-screen starring roles in the adventure film Zathura, and the young love story Little Manhattan, where Josh experienced a big "first" on set with co-star Charlie Ray.
"My first kiss was on this shoot actually – in front of the entire crew, which is really nerve-racking because everybody’s standing around," said Josh. "It's sort of cool because the first take we did, I was like shaking and my voice was trembling. I think it worked out really good, because it was really real."
In 2007, he starred in the critically acclaimed Bridge to Terabithia opposite AnnaSophia Robb. The film won Josh two Young Artist Awards for Best Performance in a Feature Film.
In 2008, he starred in Journey to the Center of the Earth with Brendan Frasier -- and returned for the sequel with Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson in 2010.
His fan base multiplied in 2012 when Josh signed on for the role of Peeta Mellark
in The Hunger Games
. Josh told ET
at the premiere that the screaming fans came as a surprise.
"Usually I'm just trying to get out of the way of the people they're trying to take pictures of -- so this is kind of a first for me!"
