Josh Hutcherson & Liam Hemsworth Talk Vanessa Hudgens & Miley Cyrus in ‘Seventeen’

'Hunger' vs. 'Twilight'
How the two series are different, but very similar.
The Hunger Games boys chatted with Seventeen (out September 13) and dished on the ladies in their lives! Josh Hutcherson said whether or not he’s dating Vanessa Hudgens, and Liam Hemsworth discussed his reconciliation with Miley Cyrus.

Check out what the boys had to say- we’ll start with Josh first:

17: We want to ask you the same thing we asked Liam: If you guys were fighting over a girl, who would win?
Josh: Let’s be honest, his Australian accent kills it. It’s an unfair advantage! I’d give the lady points straight to Liam. Liam is epic, man.

In Hunger Games, your character is totally in love with Katniss, even when she’s cold to him. Can you relate?
I feel like every relationship I get into ends up being like that! I’m someone who can fall in love at the drop of the hat. My parents raised me to be very accepting of other people, so because of that, I feel like I might be overly accepting of girls. If a girl shows any interst, I’m like, “Yes! I love you, you’re amazing!”

Well what about your Journey 2 costar, Vanessa Hudgens? You’re dating, right?
Oh, boy. I don’t know if “dating” is the right word. She’s awesome. We love being together. When I first met her, we just really hit it off. We could be goofy and silly and not worry about anything except having fun. I adore her.

Do you have a “type”?
I like girls I can have deep conversations with. The meaning of life and existence — you can go on forever about that stuff. When girls play the ditzy-dumb thing, I’m like, “Oh, God, please stop.”

Now, onto Liam:

17: In The Hunger Games, your character and Josh Hutcherson’s character fight for the same girl. Who would win in real life?
Liam: Josh is a pretty charismatic dude, so he’d probably win. I’m not that good at talking to girls. Honestly, he’s persuasive, I listen to him talk a lot and he’s smart, he’s funny…he could convince me to do anything!

You’ve been spotted with your ex Miley Cyrus. Are you officially back together?
Who knows? Might be. The main thing is that we know how we feel. We know what’s going on. It can get complicated bringing the rest of the world into it.

In a relationship, do you talk out your problems, or are you the kind of person who obsesses over them in your head?
I like to put things on the table. I like when other people do that as well — you don’t really get anywhere if you keep it all bottled up. You need to talk about it.

You’re 21 now. What would you say to 17-year-old Liam?
“You are not cool. At all. Don’t think you are, don’t try to be. You’re just not cool.” At 17, the only thing I was concerned about was surfing. Me and my buddies, that’s all we did. I had no real worries or cares in my life. I just surfed and thought I was cool.
