Josh Hutcherson uses crutches to support himself while making his way along a Mexican beach

Hunger Games actor Josh Hutcherson uses crutches to help him walk with a heavy cast on his leg down a beach in Mexico


Josh Hutcherson was spotted using crutches to help him hobble along a beach in Tulum, Mexico earlier this month.

The 29-year-old performer did not let an injury on his left leg, which was set in a cast, stop him from enjoying the tropical weather during his coastal getaway.

The Hunger Games franchise star has not made any comments regarding his health as of yet, and the source of his injury has not been made known to the public.

Hutcherson kept it casual during his walk, as he sported a slightly loose-fitting tie-dye t-shirt and a pair of black shorts.

The performer has previously suffered several leg injuries, and he was recently seen making his way around Hollywood with the assistance of a knee walker.

The Zathura: A Space Adventure actor also had his leg in a cast and used the same walker after suffering an injury in 2019.

He also had to keep one of his legs in a brace after hurting himself while lifting weights in 2017.

Hutcherson is also currently prepping for the release of the upcoming drama feature Across the River and Into the Trees.

The Paula Ortiz-directed project is notably based on Ernest Hemingway’s 1950 novel of the same name.

The film is centered on an aging Army colonel who takes a trip to Italy and attempts to come to terms with his impending death.

Development on the forthcoming movie initially began in 2016 when it was announced that Martin Campbell would serve as its director.

Numerous performers, such as Pierce Brosnan and Isabella Rossellini, were also attached to the project at the time.

However, Campbell departed the project in 2020, when it was announced that Ortiz would take the director’s chair.

Many of the roles were recast following the shakeup, and Liev Schreiber was added as the picture’s star.

Hutcherson’s casting in the project was previously announced by Variety in November of last year.
