Josh Hutcherson has decided to think before he inks from now onÂ—the actor is afraid that his tattoos will make it more difficult for him to land movie roles.
Josh still seems to be a bit unsure if he'll be able to find work after The Hunger Games, because he's afraid to add another tattoo to the three that he already owns -- a Libra sign on his wrist, a ship on his back, and an anchor on his torso. This is what he told MTV News about getting more ink:
"I need to have the kind of career Angelina Jolie has first. They're not gonna hire guys covered in tattoos. I need to make sure they hire me first."
But Josh Hutcherson really shouldn't worry about landing big roles after starring in a blockbuster like The Hunger Games -- just look at all the juicy parts Robert Pattinson has gotten because of his Twilight fame. He's going to play an interrogator of Saddam Hussein, a car thief, and a billionaire trying to get a haircut in some of his upcoming projects. Surely Josh will experience a similar influx of film offers after he's done with The Hunger Games movies (and even if he doesn't, he should be able to retire off of what he makes from them).
And Josh Hutcherson also shouldn't compare himself to Angelina Jolie -- The Hunger Games was much bigger than Tomb Raider.
But it's not hard to see why he's concerned about his tattoos -- unfortunately he's not a boy band star like One Direction cutie Zayn Malik whose ink can always be visible while he works. It probably gets a little annoying having to have tats covered up before filming, especially since stars already have to spend so much time in makeup.
So maybe Josh should just take on roles that allow him to showcase his tattoos. He's obviously a fan of the sea based on his anchor and ship ink, so perhaps he could play a pirate -- it's worked out rather well for Johnny Depp. Who knows? Maybe a love story between two teen pirates on enemy ships will be the next big thing.
So do you think that getting more ink would make it harder for Josh to find jobs?
