Hunky "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson is on the cover of Out magazine’s November 2013 issue. Hutcherson opened up about his sexuality, revealing that he’s open to being with someone of the same sex.

"I would probably list myself as mostly straight," Hutcherson, 20, told Out. "Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight. But who knows? In a f**king year, I could meet a guy and be like, ’Whoa, I’m attracted to this person.’

"I’ve met guys all the time that I’m like, ’Damn, that’s a good-looking guy,’ you know?" he continued. "I’ve never been, like, ’Oh, I want to kiss that guy.’ I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded."

The actor has been an ally of the LGBT community, winning GLAAD’s Vanguard Award, which recognizes efforts to increase visibility and understanding of LGBT people, last year. In early 2012, he teamed up with the anti-bullying campaign Straight But Not Narrow, and is currently the youngest recipient to take home the Vanguard Award.

Hutcherson also told E! last year that he has two gay uncles who died of AIDS, adding that his mother is also a big LGBT rights supporter.

The Huffington Post reports that the actor is currently dating "Hunger Games" co-star Claudia Traisac.
