We can add Josh Hutcherson to the long list of boys and men that wanted, or want, to be just like Justin Timberlake.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star revealed during an appearance on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday, Nov. 26 that he idolized the Grammy winner when he was a kid.

"I did some research on you, and you were a big Justin Timberlake fan back in the day," Jimmy Fallon said to the 21-year-old actor after the duo discussed the funnyman's relationship with the superstar singer.

"I was an embarrassingly big Justin Timberlake fan," Hutcherson revealed. "I full-on wanted to be Justin Timberlake. I had like bouts of depression because I didn't have the curly little cool hair."

And who could forget J.T.'s platinum blond curly locks?!

"Really," the late night host said.

"So I just frosted my tips when I was a little kid and I did my best," Hutcherson revealed.

"I'm not kidding," Fallon quipped as he busted out an old-school precious throwback pic of Hutcherson, sporting a baseball uniform with said frosted tips.

"Oh god!" Hutcherson gasped.

"Justin is gonna love this!" Fallon joked.

All kidding aside, Hutcherson sure looks cute with his two-tone hairstyle and big grin.
