Josh Hutcherson is currently experiencing a resurgence in his career, largely thanks to his leading role in the highly successful film “Five Nights at Freddy’s.” While he was a heartthrob for many teenage fans in the early 2010s, some who hadn’t heard much about him since are now discovering that he not only speaks Spanish fluently but has also been in a long-term relationship with Spanish actress Claudia Traisac for nearly a decade.
Many fans are navigating the mixed emotions of finding his bilingualism appealing while also learning that he’s taken. A promotional video for “Five Nights at Freddy’s” showcases Hutcherson confidently hyping up the film in an almost native Castilian accent, complete with the characteristic lisp. This revelation has caused a stir among fans, with several people expressing on social media that he has become even more attractive.
Josh Hutcherson’s proficiency in Spanish is indeed genuine. He embarked on his language-learning journey when he landed a role in the 2014 film “Escobar: Paradise Lost,” portraying Nick, a young Canadian surfer entangled in a romance with Pablo Escobar’s niece. It was during this project that he crossed paths with Traisac, leading to a relationship that has seen him dividing his time between the U.S. and Spain.
In a 2019 episode of Dax Shepard’s podcast, “Armchair Expert,” Hutcherson shared that he and Traisac had invested in an apartment together in Spain a year prior and had been living there intermittently. The actor, known for his role in “The Hunger Games” series, even made a cameo appearance in Traisac’s Spanish Netflix show “Paquita Salas,” playing an English teacher.
Hutcherson’s ability to fluently speak Spanish has been met with admiration from fans, who appreciate this additional facet of his talents. His bilingualism not only showcases his dedication to his craft but also highlights his global perspective and cultural openness.
