Josh Hutcherson is one of those recently famous young people who’s only recently famous because of one role–he plays Peeta Bread in The Hunger Games–so you may not have heard of him before this very second. But anyway! It turns out that Josh, 19, has an affinity for the sauce–and for purchasing it with a fake ID.
TMZ ran a set of photos this morning showing what they claim is Hutcherson exiting a Ralph’s grocery store in Sherman Oaks on April 18, $170 bottle of whiskey in-hand. But he’s only 19! How was he able to buy whiskey?
He used a fake ID, duh:
A source tells TMZ … Josh used a fake ID to score the bottle.
It’s interesting … a few weeks ago we got Josh on camera, grousing, "I think the age to go to war is 18 … so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well."
A spokesperson for Ralphs tells TMZ, "We strictly enforce all laws relating to the sale of alcohol to minors. We will investigate these allegations and take any steps necessary."
The biggest news about this piece of news is that it’s news in the first place, no? But such is life in a Hunger Games era.
