Hutcherson: I'm mostly straight

Josh Hutcherson has spoken out about his sexuality - describing himself as "mostly straight".

The Hunger Games star said who he is attracted to isn't set in stone, however, hinting he could also fancy men.

"I would probably list myself as mostly straight. Maybe I could say right now I'm 100 per cent straight," he told Out.

"But who knows? In a f****** year, I could meet a guy and be like, Whoa, I'm attracted to this person. 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 per cent anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded," he added.

Josh, who will reprise his role as Peeta Mellark in the Hunger Games sequel, Catching Fire, revealed he was inspired to co-found Straight But Not Narrow, a youth organisation that helps kids speak out against homophobia, by his gay uncles.

"My uncle Steve died the day after my mum told him she was pregnant with me. She was really sad that I never got to meet them. I am, too - they sound amazing," he said.

The 20-year-old said he would be fine if his children were unsure of their sexuality.

"I have this dream that one day, my kid's gonna come home from school and be like, 'Dad, there's this girl that I like, and there's this guy that I like, and I don't know which one I like more, and I don't know what to do'," he said.

"And it'd just be a non-issue, like, 'Which one is a good person? Which one makes you laugh more?'."
