Hutcherson's movie set concussion

Josh Hutcherson suffered a mild concussion while he was making the film

Josh Hutcherson has revealed he was given a concussion by his Hunger Games co-star Jennifer Lawrence.

The duo, who star together in the eagerly anticipated big screen adaptation of Suzanne Collins' novels, say that they didn't suffer any other serious injuries on set.

"The only time I got hurt was when I got kicked in the side of the head by Jennifer," he told E! Online.

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

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

The 19-year-old recalled that Jennifer got emotional over her move, adding: "She felt so bad. She was crying."
