Josh Hutcherson on a 'Hunger Games' threesome

Suzanne Collins' "Hunger Games" trilogy also features a serious love triangle, and actor Josh Hutcherson has come up with an alternate solution.

The 20-year-old star of the beloved "Hunger Games" franchise (if you don't know, he's the one who plays Peeta Mellark), tells Out magazine that maybe instead of choosing one guy, heroine Katniss Everdeen should get to have both.

“I know Peeta would be into it, for sure," Hutcherson says in Out's November issue. "He’s very sensitive, in touch with his emotions."

For those who haven't majored in "Hunger Games" 101, the trilogy - and the four films based on it - centers on Katniss and the eventual rebellion she helps lead against the oppressive, wealthy Capitol. One of the guys she's interested in, Gale (Liam Hemsworth), is a rough-and-rugged type that she grew up with. Hutcherson's Peeta, on the other hand, is first her competitor and then her love interest (sort of - it's not that cut-and-dry).

As the story continues, the three have start to have a pretty "rough time" in between the love triangle and the civil unrest, Hutcherson says. To him, the idea of just letting Katniss, Gale and Peeta have a three-way relationship makes perfect sense.

"I think it really might solve a lot of their problems. I’m going to pitch that idea," he said. "Let’s make it a - what’s it called when three people are in a relationship together? A triad? ... That’ll go over well with Middle America.”

With the actor himself, though, such a plot twist would be just fine. As Hutcherson tells the magazine, he's secure in his sexuality, deeming himself to be "mostly straight."

“Maybe I could say right now I’m 100 percent straight, but who knows? In a f*****g year, I could meet a guy and be like, 'Whoa, I’m attracted to this person,'” he continues. “I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, 'Damn, that’s a good-looking guy, you know?' I’ve never been, like, 'Oh, I want to kiss that guy.' I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100 percent anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.”

    I don't like the direction this young adults trilogy is headed. Why not keep it classic and clean? The Disney thing isn't dead yet.

      I take it you're part of that "Middle America" Josh was talking about. If not in geography, in spirit, anyways...

      There are a million shades of gray in this world, Jason, and everyone is some shade of gray - even you. No one is just black or just white.

    Sorry, Josh, but no straight man would ever say "maybe."

      At least he is honest about how he feels ,most of the men who feel attracted to other men and THINK that they are str8 are to hypocritical to say it out loud

    And AGAIN with that expression, Hemsworth. Please practice making a new face in the mirror – this smug, fake concerned look you seem to have permanantly plastered on your face is starting to annoy me.

      What photo are you looking at? I don't see a shred of smugness or fake-ness in his look at all. Actually, I see a bit of bashful humility.That's all YOU.
