Josh Hutcherson"The Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson has been left far from impressed by fans' clever wordplay on posters at the film's premieres because some have dubbed the movie's lead couple 'Peeniss.'
The actor plays Peeta Mellark in the hit film and co-star Jennifer Lawrence portrays heroine Katniss Everdeen, and devotees have combined the characters' names to create one new moniker.
Hutcherson explains, "People like to combine names, like Brangelina, and Peeta and Katniss can lead to 'Peeniss.' We had girls come up to us when we were doing signings...and they would say, 'I love Peeniss'...What do you say to that?"
