Josh Hutcherson is making a surprising confession about cannibalism.

In a recent interview with British GQ, the 22-year-old Hunger Games: Mockingjay star revealed he's intrigued by the idea of eating human flesh.

"I don't want somebody to die for me to eat them," he told the mag. "However, if someone happened to die, from natural causes and it was not so taboo...I'm curious. I want to know what it tastes like. Like you want to know what a pigeon tastes like, you know, except a human. They're all animals."

Hutcherson also says he identifies with the life or death survival mentality of the characters in The Hunger Games series. "If it's you or them, you're probably going to pick yourself," he said.

As for tabloid rumors that he and co-star Jennifer Lawrence are more than just friends, Hutcherson insists there has never been anything romantic between them.

"From the moment we met, we just hit it off," he dished. "If we were at all sexually attracted to each other, it would be the most intense relationship in the world. However, there has never been an ounce of that between us. It's been brother and sister from the beginning. We just love each other and that's a special connection that you only have a couple of times in your life."
