Who Is Josh Hutcherson, Vanessa Hudgens' New Man?

The New Zac?
Vanessa Hudgens and Josh Hutcherson

Vanessa Hudgens has reportedly moved on from ex-boyfriend Zac Efron with a new man: Actor Josh Hutcherson. Who is this handsome young man that has reportedly caught VHud's eye and how did he snag one of the prettiest young women in Hollywood? Celebuzz has answers to your all your burning questions.

Where Is Josh from?

The 18-year-old actor hails from Union, Kentucky where he grew up with big dreams of becoming an actor. Josh started auditioning for roles when he was just 9-years-old and has already created an impressive resume that includes over ten films and guests spots on ER and The Division.

Wait, isn't Josh the kid from The Kids Are All Right?

Yes! Josh played Laser, the young son of Annette Bening and Julianne Moore's characters who wants his sister (Mia Wasikowska) to help him find their biological father. The Kids Are All Right was nominated for several awards in the past few months so that probably explains why Josh took Vanessa as his date to the Independent Spirit Film Awards on Saturday, February 26.

Watch the trailer for The Kids Are All Right below.

How did Vanessa and Josh meet?

The pair met while filming Journey 2: The Mysterious Island, which is currently being filmed. Apparently the pair became friendly on set and Vanessa is reportedly "smitten" with her hunky new co-star. Vanessa even took Josh to the Beastly premiere and the couple were spotted snuggling throughout the night.

How does Josh compare to Zac?

Well, of course, no one can compare to Zac but the two are both talented young actors – Zac is merely a bigger star than Josh. Unlike Zac, Josh has been avoiding the teen hunk route to fame and has instead selected lots of bit roles in critically-acclaimed films like The Kids Are All Right.

  • diane

  • zanessa

    omg..he's too young!!!come on vanessa....

  • ToAllThoseHaters

    you people are all so superficial. he's not ugly, and even if he was, why would it matter? he's a great guy, and they look happy together, as friends or together. i personally don't like vanessa hudgens because she sure as hell doesn't have much talent. sure, she's pretty but she can't act. Josh Hutcherson didn't break them up, vanessa did. is it his fault he was there when they broke up? no. vanessa could've stayed with zac, but SHE didn't. josh couldn't have just said, "oh vanessa, break up with zac and be with me!'. no. he did NOTHING to break them up. also, you can't tell us what vanessa thinks, because if she really did love zac, she wouldn't have broken up with him. so stop hating on josh, because he actually has talent. get a life people.

  • lol

    really? hottie? please!! he is way to ugly, i can't even look at him! please, if vanessa went from Zac to this guy, she is blind! i love her, and all of that, but come on! he is only 18! he is a kid for her!!!!!!!!!!!

  • noah

    Zac's hair and bronzed skin trump this guy. Big time. Just saying.

  • HSMGleeks

    OMG! Just because they are in a stupid movie together DOES NOT mean that they are dating. I forget what website it was, but it said the Josh Hutcherson could have had something to do with Zanessa's breakup! I hate him...jerk.! I HOPE ZANESSA GET BACK TOGETHER. Josh Hutcherson is only 18 too. What a moron...flirting with someone else's girl and causing them to break up. Deep in her heart, Vanessa is still in love with Zac. By the way people, it is called chemistry. COSTARS HAVE TO HAVE CHEMISTRY!!! I hope Zac and Vanessa make up their minds and get back together. Zanessa4ever!

    He was also in Zathura with Kristen Stewart. He's grown up to be a very handsome young man. I've always thought he was a really good actor, especially for being so young. If he is truly dating Vanessa Hudgins, it seems as though they are both pretty lucky.

    OMG they got the story wrong!!! i hate it when media websites do this!! THERE IN AN UPCOMING MOVIE TOGETHER! there NOT dating, there just CO-STAR :)

    I love how you seriously made a article about "Who is Josh Hutcherson" lol. He's been around longer and is much more talented than Vanessa. Plus if you're going to name a movie to help people realize who he is...why not point out Bridge to Terabithia.
