Josh Hutcherson has named his puppy after Ryan Gosling.

The 19-year-old ‘Hunger Games’ star adopted a Blue Pit puppy from a rescue centre last week and decided to call it Driver, after one of Ryan’s film characters.

Josh said: ‘I’m obsessed with the movie ‘Drive’, and Ryan Gosling’s character was named Driver.

‘I always thought it was a good name for a dog so it just kind of worked out.’

The actor is looking forward to ‘taking it easy’ for the next few months, after being worked into the ground by ex-Navy Seal Logan Hood to bulk up for his role in ‘The Hunger Games’.

He told US Weekly: ‘[Logan] just kicks ass. [He had me] flipping tires the parking lot and slamming baseball bats against body bags – crazy things!

‘It was so unconventional, and you’re working muscles you didn’t even know you had. You’re like, ‘How am I possibly this sore?’

‘I felt like with Logan, I was sore for four days afterwards, and we worked out five days a week, so I was in a constant state of soreness!’
