While J. Law has already explained her (totally valid) excuse for not having a Twitter account at all, J. Hutch has mostly remained mum on his infrequent tweets. But during an appearance on “The Tonight Show” on Friday (Feb. 27), the “Hunger Games” hottie revealed the reasoning behind his Twitter-less life, and it’s one that we can all probably relate to.
“I was thinking and...I shouldn’t have a Twitter with two-point-something million followers,” he said. “Because people drunk text. If you drunk tweet, it’s 2.6 million times worse!”
While Josh does in fact have an official Twitter account, he uses it very sparingly (241 tweets since joining in June 2009? Step up that tweet game, yo). The 22-year-old revealed that he’s so paranoid about it that, “as a precaution,” he doesn’t even know his own password.
“I can’t even log in to my own Twitter. Somebody else has it for me,” he admitted. “That way I can’t ramble like, ‘Argh, I hate Hunger Games!’”
He explained further, “You can take 12 years to build a career and ruin it in 140 characters or less. It’s too powerful. It’s like the ring in ‘Lord of the Rings.’ You don’t want it, man. It’s too much responsibility!”
Besides dishing on his lack of social media savviness, Josh also spilled about his past life as a county fair pageant cutie after Jimmy Fallon unveiled some adorably embarrassing throwback pics.
Yep, little tot Josh Hutcherson was once crowned “Little Mr. Boone County” in his Kentucky hometown. Josh compared the whole thing to “Toddlers & Tiaras” and even broke out into an impromptu rendition of “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” by Brooks & Dunn.
