At the beginning of the final Hunger Games film, Peeta was in bad shape. He'd been tortured within an inch of his life and couldn't tell fact from fiction. Get a behind-the-scenes glimpse at what it was like to film one his most emotional scenes.
Josh Hutcherson had to delve into Peeta's post-torture mentality for the Mockingjay — Part 2. He and director Francis Lawrence talked a lot about what Peeta must have endured at the hands of the Capitol.
And it got to the point where his co-star, Jennifer Lawrence (Katniss Everdeen), couldn't even recognize him anymore.
And these two actors have possibly the closest offscreen relationship ever.
We also get to see what it was like to film the emotional scene when Willow Shields (Primrose Everdeen) tries to convince Peeta that Katniss isn't evil, as the Capitol has brainwashed him to believe.
Things looked intense.
