See 13-year-old Josh Hutcherson during his first interview with Jimmy Kimmel

Posted on


Josh Hutcherson had just turned 13 when he first appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! in 2005, and the 23-year-old star relived that debut interview during Tuesday’s episode of the late-night show. “Notice the hair,” Hutcherson said before Kimmel played the clip, “I expect it’s going to be horrible.”

In the segment, Kimmel marvels at how a youngster from Kentucky, where Hutcherson was born, could become a Hollywood actor (at the time he was promoting Zathura: A Space Adventure, which also starred a young Kristen Stewart). “I always enjoyed entertaining people, since I was really young,” Hutcherson told Kimmel at the time. (The other guest that night: Ozzy Osbourne.)
