Josh Hutcherson
is finally legal!

The "Hunger Games" star turns 21 today, and we can't believe this former teen star has become a leading man.

The Kentucky native started his career at age 9, booking a small part on "E.R."

By the time he was a teen, Josh had major roles in "Bridge to Teribithia," "Journey to the Center of the Earth" and "The Kids Are All Right." But he really broke out in 2012 with the "Hunger Games" franchise, co-starring his pal Jennifer Lawrence.

In spite of his 5'6" frame, Josh had a large presence on screen (to compare, Jennifer Lawrence is 5'8" and Liam Hemsworth is 6'4"). He joins some of the biggest stars (Tom Cruise, Robert Downey Jr. and Ben Stiller, to name a few) as a member of the shortest leading men club!

We’re excited to see him reprise his role as Peeta Mellark in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" out November 22. But in the meantime, click "Launch Gallery" above to see Josh and the other A-listers who made the cut for Short Leading Men!
