Peeta Likes To Party

Peeta Mellark, I mean, Josh Hutcherson scored some expensive whiskey at grocery store this week. Well, homeboy is nineteen so people naturally are freaking out about it. The Hunger Games hunk waltzed right into a Ralph’s grocery store, used a fake ID, and walked out with a bottle of Macallan in tow. TMZ says they got him on camera a few weeks ago saying, “I think the age to go to war is 18 … so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well.” Way to stick it to the man, Josh.

Underage drinking isn’t uncommon, hell I did it. We see it as college students, but something tells me Josh didn’t have a fake ID although sources say he did. He’s a well-known celebrity and went to a grocery store in Los Angeles. People know how old he is. This is just another instance of turning a blind eye at a celebrity. Shocker. I give him props though because he didn’t even try to hide it, and he’s obviously not going to deny it. A Ralph’s spokesperson said, “We strictly enforce all laws relating to the sale of alcohol to minors.  We will investigate these allegations and take any steps necessary.”

Apparently, Josh could get prosecuted and so could Ralph’s. I doubt this will happen. He’ll get a warning, and Ralph’s will get a slap on the wrist. Just be careful Joshie, we don’t want you turning into Haymitch or anything. You could’ve just asked Liam Hemsworth or Jennifer Lawrence to buy it for you.

What do you think about Josh Hutcherson buying alcohol? Do you think he really used a fake ID? Is he right about the drinking age?

    I'm from the UK where the legal drinking age is 18 anyway. So maybe I'm biased but honestly if you are legally an adult at 18 I can't understand why you can't drink.

    1. damaskaren says:

      Agreed. Here in Mexico also the legal age for getting married, getting credit cards, and get your full driver's license is 18. I have never understood what kind of advantage it is supposed to have bann drinking until 21, it just makes kids get way more eager to get drunk.

    This is just really funny to me! I love that he's smiling in the picture like he knows he got way with something good…

    1. Oh he’s totally smug about it!

    In South Africa the Legal drinking age is 18 and it really does work. The stretch between 18 and 21 is the wildest party phase and by 21 you tend to be over it, like it is chilled to enoy a couple drinks etc.

    If Peeta Mellark waltzed right up into MY grocery store and asked for a bottle of whiskey, I just might have done the same thing… Who am I kidding? I would have given him the whole aisle.

  5. Pissed off guy says:

    I was in the armed forces and got arrested for drinking in my room when I was 19. Therefore, fuck this dude.
