Josh Hutcherson was star-struck when he watched David Beckham play soccer.

The 'Hunger Games' star doesn't get nervous when he meets other actors but he felt giddy when he attended a Los Angeles Galaxy game in which the former England captain played.

He said: ''The other day I went to an La Galaxy game and David Beckham was, like, 15ft away from me and that kind of blew my mind. It blew most of the ladies' minds, too, because it was David Beckham. But for me it was more because I think he's an amazing athlete. I'm more star-struck by athletes than actors.''

Since appearing in 'The Hunger Games' as Peeta Mellark - in which he stars opposite Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth - Josh has been catapulted to worldwide fame.

The 19-year-old actor is still getting used to the attention but he accepts it's part of The Deal if you appear in such a huge movie.

He told Now magazine: ''There's a certain level of sacrifice that you have to make (being famous). It's like anything in life - there's the good and the bad. Being famous isn't something that people would usually think is a bad thing, but sometimes it can be a bit much. I think that there's no true way to prepare for it ... I believe it's about surrounding yourself with the right kind of people and having good solid friends around you.''
