The 'Hunger Games' actor and his girlfriend first met while filming 'Escobar: Paradise Lost' and have been together for almost a decade
Josh Hutcherson and his girlfriend Claudia Traisac have been going strong for almost a decade.
Hutcherson first met Claudia Traisac in 2013 when they costarred in Escobar: Paradise Lost, around the same time that he was filming the Hunger Games movies.
After sparking dating rumors that May, they went public with their romance the following month as they were photographed kissing in Los Angeles, and were affectionate while promoting their film together. In the years since, they have kept their romance mostly out of the spotlight.
In 2015, the Five Nights at Freddy's actor confirmed their relationship for the first time at the film’s Los Angeles premiere. "It's pretty good," Hutcherson told E! News about their romance. "Distance is hard, but we make it work."
Here’s everything to know about Hutcherson’s girlfriend.
She’s from Spain
Born in December 1992, Traisac hails from Leganés, a city in the Community of Madrid, Spain, where she primarily resides. In an interview with DuJour magazine in 2015, Hutcherson talked about how he and Traisac make their long-distance relationship work.
“There’s a lot of traveling, a lot of Skype,” he told the publication, per Yahoo! Entertainment. “We’re doing this international thing. We’re young, we make it work.”
In December 2022, Hutcherson was seen visiting Traisac in her hometown to celebrate her 30th birthday in Spain, in photos obtained by The Daily Mail.
She’s an actress
Like Hutcherson, Traisac is an actress and has starred in a number of Spanish projects. In addition to starring in Escobar: Paradise Lost with Hutcherson, she is well-known for starring on the Spanish TV series Cuéntame cómo pasó.
She and Josh Hutcherson played love interests before they started dating
Hutcherson and Traisac first met in early 2013 while filming the romantic thriller film, Escobar: Paradise Lost. The film follows Hutcherson’s character, Nick Brady, as he meets and falls for Traisac’s character Maria, who (he finds out) is the niece of a drug kingpin.
Later that year, the two sparked dating rumors as they were seen showing PDA in Los Angeles in June.
She and Josh Hutcherson have been together for a decade
After going public with their relationship in June 2013, the couple made a handful of cute appearances together the following year as they promoted their film at various film festivals.
In September 2014, they made their red carpet debut as a couple as they attended the Toronto International Film Festival alongside their costars.
It wasn’t until 2015 that Hutcherson publicly confirmed their relationship at the film’s Los Angeles premiere. "It's pretty good," Hutcherson told E! News about their romance at the time. "Distance is hard, but we make it work."
She and Josh Hutcherson keep their romance super private
Since they first started dating, Hutcherson and Traisac have been notoriously private about their relationship. However, they have given a few glimpses of their romance from time to time.
In addition to stepping out for a few public appearances together, including a Los Angeles Clippers game in 2016, Hutcherson has made a few appearances on Traisac’s Instagram account and he regularly comments on her posts with sweet replies, including heart emojis.
