On screen and on the page, The Hunger Games are a gladiator-style battle to the death. Behind the scenes making the movies, it's another competition altogether.

Just ask Josh Hutcherson who plays Peeta Mellark to Jennifer Lawrence's Katniss Everdeen.

Having filmed the latest, Hunger Games, Catching Fire, opening Nov. 22, Hutcherson tells Seventeen for its November issue (on sale Oct. 22) that in a test of wits as to who's funnier, he or Lawrence, "We have this debate all the time – I think it's me!"

Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson doesn't believe in labels.

The actor, 20, discusses sexuality in an interview with Out magazine and admits, "Maybe I could say right now I'm 100 percent straight. But who knows? In a f–––ing 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 percent anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded," he says.

If it weren't for the simple swipe of his signature gold eyeliner, you'd almost never know that Cinna hails from the garish Capitol of Panem.

But then again, as fans of The Hunger Games know, Cinna (played by Lenny Kravitz in the film adaptation of Suzanne Collins's hit trilogy) is anything but a stereotypical Capitol citizen.

Assigned to assist Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) as they tour the districts in Catching Fire, his assistance is needed more than ever.

Sporting bridal-like attire, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Peeta (Josh Hutcherson) pose for a promotional poster for the Victory Tour – which – in the Hunger Games universe – is when the victor of the annual Hunger Games tournament visits each of the fictional Panem's districts.

Peeta blazed the trail, and now it's catching fire.

Following in the footsteps of their Hunger Games costar Josh Hutcherson, Jennifer Lawrence, Woody Harrelson and Elizabeth Banks ditched the dystopian universe for some time with dolphins.

During three separate visits to Atlanta's Georgia Aquarium last month, the actors, in town filming Hunger Games: Catching Fire, were treated to exclusive meet-and-greets with marine mammals.

On Oct. 14, Lawrence donned a wetsuit to swim with whale sharks, manta rays and zebra sharks at the Journey with Gentle Giants exhibit. While she was instructed not to touch the creatures, she swam the perimeter and got up close and personal with several whale sharks.

Josh Hutcherson is ditching the dystopian world for dolphins!

While on a break from filming the Hunger Games sequel Catching Fire in Atlanta on Oct. 6, the actor visited the Georgia Aquarium and got an exclusive introduction to an Atlantic bottlenose dolphin by trainer Lisa Mignogna.

Being Peeta definitely has its perks: During Hutcherson's four-hour visit with members of the film's crew, he was treated to a behind-the-scenes tour of the park's main attractions after-hours. He saw African penguins, beluga whales, sea otters and zebra sharks, among other creatures, and marveled at the size of the whale sharks.
