Hunger Games, Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson

Making Hunger Games hurt.

A lot.

But it wasn't during actual filming when an accident sent one star of the much-anticipated flick to the hospital.

What happened? Read on for the details...

Jennifer Lawrence accidentally gave Josh Hutcherson a concussion when the cameras weren't rolling!

"The only time I got hurt was when I got kicked in the side of the head by Jennifer," Hutcherson told me last night at West Hollywood hotel Palihouse, where Nylon Guys magazine and PF Flyers was celebrating his debut on the mag's March cover.

"We were hanging out and she was like, 'I can kick over your head' and I was like, 'No way,' " said Hutcherson, 19. "She said, 'Watch!' But then she kicked me right in the temple. She felt so bad. She was crying."

Fortunately, he wasn't seriously injured. "I've had a couple of concussions before so I knew what it feels like when it happens," Hutcherson said. "We had to have a neurologist come in. It ended up being a very mild concussion, but still it was a concussion."

Hutcherson also said he feels "100 percent" the same way as Lawrence about not wanting as much attention as the Twilight gang.

"People keep telling me to get ready for it," he said. "I don't think there's anything you can do to get ready for it."

Also at the Nylon party were Hunger Games costars Leven Rambin, Alexander Ludwig, Jacqueline Emerson and Dayo Okeniyi as well 90210's Shenae Grimes.
