Heads up, Hunger Games fans–Josh Hutcherson, who plays Peeta Mellark and love interest of Katniss Everdeen, has a solution for the love triangle between his character, Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) and Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth): a threesome. Hutcherson talked about The Hunger Games and his own sexuality in an issue of Out vmagazine.

“I know Peeta would be into it, for sure,” Hutcherson said during an interview with Out, a magazine that covers gay fashion and entertainment. “He’s very sensitive, in touch with his emotions. I think it really might solve a lot of their problems.”

While Hutcherson was joking about that happening (at least to an extent), The Hunger Games star told Out magazine that he might try to sell the idea. “You know what? I’m going to pitch that idea,” he said. “Let’s make it a–what’s it called when three people are in a relationship together? A triad? That’ll go over well with Middle America.”

To steal George Takei’s catchphrase, “Oh, my.”

Hutcherson is appearing on the November 2013 cover of Out, and while the threesome comment seems to be the thing that is getting most of the attention right now, that’s hardly the real story in the interview. Hutcherson, who works with the Straight But Not Narrow organization to promote gay rights, opened up about his own sexuality (not just Peeta’s) during the interview.

While Hutcherson says he identifies mostly as straight, he isn’t closed to the possibility of a same-sex relationship. “Maybe I could say right now I’m 100% straight,” he says. “But who knows? In a f***** year, I could meet a guy and be like, ‘Whoa, I’m attracted to this person.’”

The Catching Fire star hasn’t had such a moment yet, but he says that ruling out the possibility would be close-minded. “I’ve never been, like, ‘Oh, I want to kiss that guy.’ I really love women. But I think defining yourself as 100% anything is kind of near-sighted and close-minded.”

The 20-year-old actor does a lot of LGBT awareness and his main inspiration for his work with Straight But Not Narrow is the memory of his two gay uncles, both of whom died of AIDS complications.

“Our main goal is to just show people that you can be yourself,” Hutcherson said during a halftime ceremony at a celebrity basketball game in August, where he presented openly gay NBA player Jason Collins with the Straight But Not Narrow Advocate of the Year Award. It “is something that some of us take for granted, I think.”

Watch Josh Hutcherson when the second Hunger Games installment, Catching Fire, hits theaters on November 22.
