"You know, I think he really brought a lot to the movie."

As for being recognized by GLAAD (at just 19 years old, the handsome star is the youngest recipient of the Vanguard Award) Josh said he was "blown away" when he learned he had been chosen for the honor.

"I was shocked... it means a lot," he said. "Equal rights for people has been a huge passion of mine since before I was even born, in my opinion, so to have people come out here and support me and this whole cause is fantastic."

"Catching Fire" is slated to begin filming in August and will hit theaters on November 22, 2013.
