But in real life, the Hunger Games: Catching Fire costars are friends, not lovers! And in an interview with Glamour's November issue, Josh admits it is a little weird sometimes to switch from pals to Peeta-and-Katniss mode!
"There are times when we've had to cut [while filming]," he says, "because we can't get through a take without laughing."
"Jennifer and I were nervous about our new costars because we're kind of crazy when we're together, so it can be a little scary for the new people," he adds. "But everybody jumped right in. It was a fun vibe on set."
But let's be honest. Can a man and a woman really, truly be just friends? "Absolutely," Josh says, "but there's often a natural inclination to want more."
True. That said, Josh isn't averse to dating a costar. In fact, he met his girlfriend, actress Claudia Traisac, while filming the upcoming thriller Paradise Lost. "As far as I'm concerned, you're both actors, you understand each other's lifestyle," he explains, "so it's a very natural thing to have happen."
