“It’s fuckin’ horrible,” Hutcherson said of the phone-hacking scandal. “I haven’t spoken to her since it happened, but as far as the public, Twitter, and media have reacted, it’s awful. We act because it’s what we want to do. I’ve acted since I was nine years old because it’s my job, it’s what I’m good at, and it’s what I love to do. I don’t want attention. I don’t want to have my private life looked into or have people think they deserve to know about my private life.
"And, then people say, ‘Well, then you shouldn’t have become an actor.’ Fuck that. I didn’t choose all that. I chose to be an actor. I was nine years old! Do you think a nine-year-old is thinking about public scandal? I wanted to make movies...It makes you feel like you want to run away from it all and escape to a small island away from everybody.”
