Josh Hutcherson Is 'Proud' Of Jennifer Lawrence's Wage Gap Essay

Josh Hutcherson brings his own Canon camera on the red carpet at the premiere of The Rusted at AOL Build on Thursday night (October 22) in New York City.

The 23-year-old actor was joined by filmmaker Ron Howard and Jena Malone for the event, which was part of Canon’s Project Imagination: The Trailer. You can now watch the film online at imagination.usa.canon.com.

Speaking with MTV recently, Josh opened up about how proud he was to read Jennifer Lawrence‘s recent essay on the wage gap in Hollywood.

“I was a little late to read it. Someone was like, ’did you read that thing about Jen?’ and I was like, ’No? What?’ Because I’m not on social things, or whatever. To even have to say the words ’women’s pay’ sounds so backwards and f***** up and not modern in any way, shape or form. And so for Jen to use her platform to speak about it in her classic Jen way, just blunt, saying what she thinks, I think it’s great,” he shared.

Josh added, “I’m really proud of her, and happy. She’s always been a little gun-shy… she’s always said what she thinks, but as far as tackling issues, she’s never really stepped up to do that. It’s nice to see her now taking that step, being progressive, and using her voice not just to make people laugh.”

FYI: Jena is wearing Brian Atwood shoes. Josh is wearing J Brand jeans and The Frye Company boots.
