Now that Josh Hutcherson is the lead of what’s poised to become one of the biggest film franchises ever, it’s only natural that rumors have begun to swirl about his love life. Here’s one we can shoot down right off the bat: Hutcherson is not dating Emma Roberts.
The two young actors were photographed on Thursday night hanging out at Spin, a ping-pong club in NYC. Yes — apparently ping-pong clubs are a thing. They appeared to be flirting outside the door, but sources close to Hutcherson tell Zap2it that it was a purely platonic hang-out.
Both actors are set to star in the title roles of “Aaron and Sarah,” Neil Patrick Harris’ directorial debut, which was announced all the way back in October 2010. The film spans four years of high school, including four proms — and a funeral. No word yet on a release date.
Roberts recently ended her relationship with “Glee” star Chord Overstreet.

“If I’m having a really bad day, I always have a girlfriend — or even a guy friend — who I can call,” the actress, 21, told Us Weekly Wednesday while promoting Seventeen’s Pretty Amazing contest in NYC. “They’ll listen to me wallow for a minute and then be like, ‘OK, let’s stop. Everything’s great. Let’s figure out how to fix whatever’s bothering you.'”
“I’ve gone through times where you’re feeling low and you don’t reach out to people and you just keep wallowing in that, and I think that’s when things turn into a bigger deal than they need to be,” she explained. “I think it’s important to have people who will pull you out of that, whether it’s family or friends.”
The Scream 4 actress teamed up with Seventeen for its second annual Pretty Amazing contest, which asks young girls to share their stories of personal achievement for the chance to appear on the cover of the magazine’s October 2012 issue. The winner will also receive a $20,000 scholarship, courtesy of Neutrogena.
“It’s a cool contest because even the girls who don’t win, the fact that they took the time to sit down and think about something that’s great about themselves, I think takes a lot,” Roberts, who will help choose the winner, told Us. “A lot of people think that comes off as bragging and they want to [downplay their story]. So I think the fact that these girls are saying, ‘I did do something cool and I am good at this’ is really admirable.” (For more details on Roberts’ involvement in Seventeen’s Pretty Amazing contest click here.)
Roberts, who recently wrapped production on the dark comedy Adult World with John Cusack, will begin filming Empire State with Liam Hemsworth, 22, “in the next month or so.”
“It’s really cool — like an ’80s heist movie,” Roberts said of her new project. “I’m really excited about that. I play his love interest.”
