I'm so sick of the words 'gay' and 'lesbian'.

I'm someone who can fall in love at the drop of the hat.

I believe people are genuinely good. I don’t like to see the bad in people, so because of that, I could see myself falling into a bad situation. But thankfully, I haven’t yet.
For me, in the third book, when Peeta gets brainwashed by the Capitol, that's going to be fun to play. The rest of the time he's very much into Katniss, and for that to get turned around and to play it the other way, that's going to be very exciting.

You have to maintain who you are as a person and stay true to yourself - that's my biggest moral as a human being, as well as a very self-deprecating sense of humor.
I think the brutality is important to convey as part of the story, to see how brutal it is to have these kids in battle with one another.
I love storytelling so for me to get behind a story and get in there early in its infancy and kind of develop it in the early stages was something I really wanted to be a part of.

I'm pretty good at being not afraid of almost anything, except for spiders.
Oh, I am a prompt person!
I'm always open to not necessarily to do leading roles because I want to do roles that are the best, character role. And sometimes, it's not going to be a leading role. It's going to be a smaller, supporting role. So really, I'm open to doing anything.

When you get to play a character that's in love, it's cool.
Once you have love as a motivator in a story, your character is free to do anything.

Acting is a challenge at times. I mean, when you have scenes where you're jumping into a mascot bear to travel back in time, and you try to make that seem real.

Doing action, the thing is it's cool to watch it, and as a guy I like seeing it.
With the romance thing it's something everyone can relate to. Once you have love as a motivator in a story, I think everyone can do anything. Once someone's in love they can do the craziest thing that no one's ever thought of. You have that excuse to do whatever you want.

I'm a big fan of the older vampire movies.
I've always been a big supporter of equal rights and encouraging people to be who they are.
I'm so excited. I love Peeta so much. I think that over the course of the next couple of books, he has so many interesting places to go to, character-wise. I'm ready to dive full-force into it. When I saw the movie actually, it got me energized. 'Let's go get some cameras! Let's go shoot the second one right now!'
I love doing roles and movies that are different from each other.
I love doing roles and movies that are different from each other.
That's kind of why I like to be an actor because I get to play different characters and pretend I'm different people going through different situations.
I love the fan support, though, because it all comes from passion.
At times when you're adapting a book into a movie, you have to take certain creative liberties to bridge the gap between the two forms of media.
I never really read a character before that I connected with more than Peeta.
So, for me, if I couldn't get that job I was like, 'Well, if I can't play practically myself in a movie, what can I play?'
'The Hunger Games' for me is I love the books so much and the character and the story were incredible. That's kind of the game plan is just do really interesting stories with interesting characters.
