Josh Hutcherson Channels Penelope Pitstop in Bright Pink Crash Helmet (PHOTOS)

'Hunger Games' Trivia
Do you know 'Hunger Games'? Prove it!
Real men do wear pink — as proven by Josh Hutcherson.

The Hunger Games actor proved he’d rather be safe than sorry — even if he looks a little silly in the process — by wearing a sparkly pink motorcycle helmet as he cruised around Beverly Hills, Calif.

The 19-year-old looked to be channeling the cartoon character Penelope Pitstop from Wacky Races rather than the action star he plays on the big screen.

So was his helmet a joke?

It didn’t appear to be, as Hutcherson paired his headgear with a vest, leather biker gloves and jeans.

The young hunk was taking a break from filming the Hunger Games followup Catching Fire. The new movie will follows Jennifer Lawrence’s character, Katniss, in the future where she is not only fighting President Snow – played by Donald Sutherland – but also battling a love triangle between herself and her childhood love, Liam Hemsworth and Hutcherson’s character, Peeta.


The movie is set to hit the big screen on November 22, 2013.
