Josh Hutcherson, Claudia Traisac Relationship Update: 'Hunger Games' Star Opens Up About Long Distance Romance
Josh Hutcherson knows the struggle of a long distance relationship.
The Hunger Games actor has been with his girlfriend Claudia Traisac for two years-since the two bonded and fell in love as co-stars in Escobar: Paradise Lost--and sometimes, the distance can be tough, he revealed.
Speaking to DuJour magazine, Hutcherson got real about the difficulties (and frustrations) of maintaining a relationship between two actors who are frequently apart and constantly have to travel for work.
"There's a lot of traveling, a lot of Skype," he explained, admitting that the video chatting can be a cruel tease: "I feel like I'm with you because I'm seeing you and we're talking, but also you're a f-ing screen. It's very frustrating."
It's an all-too-real frustration that anyone who has ever done the whole LDR thing knows way too well. Still, like anyone who has had to suffer through the hardships of long distance, Hutcherson is sure to point out the positives that it has to offer.
"It's kind of cool. We're doing this international thing," the actor explained, as his girlfriend was filming a television show in Madrid at the time of the DuJour interview.
"We're young," he explained. "We make it work."
It's a sentiment he's echoed before when it comes to their relationship, with Hutcherson telling E! back in June that his relationship with Traisac is "pretty good," and though "the distance is hard, we make it work."
Though the pair remained coy about their romance for two solid years, they finally couldn't resist gushing about each other to the media.
"I'm really happy," Traisac told E! over the summer. "It's really great."
