Rachel Zegler and Josh Andrés Rivera had an absolute blast on the set of The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes – it was basically a comedy special with a touch of dystopian drama!
This dynamic duo, who’ve been joined at the hip for a solid two years, took center stage in the Hunger Games prequel. Rachel, the queen of the screen, dazzled as Lucy Gray Baird, while Josh rocked it as the one and only Sejanus Plinth.
Now, get ready for a behind-the-scenes revelation that will make you chuckle like a Capitol resident with a ticklish feather boa. These two lovebirds weren’t just delivering lines; they were passing notes like rebellious high school sweethearts plotting to overthrow the cafeteria regime.
According to Josh, this habit kicked off during one of his doodle sessions in his “academy notebook” (because who doesn’t carry one of those around?). Picture this: Josh, lost in thought, scribbling away, when Rachel pops up and goes, “Hey, Picasso, draw me as a flower!” Because, you know, that’s a totally normal request.
Without missing a beat, Josh, in the spirit of artistic spontaneity, conjured up a masterpiece—a flower with a goofy grin and legs. Yes, legs. Don’t question the artistry; just embrace it. He proudly handed it over to Rachel, who, upon unveiling the floral marvel, erupted into laughter.
Josh, apparently discovering a hidden talent amidst the chaos of Panem, confessed, “Afterwards, I got kinda into drawing. I feel like I got a lot better.” We’re talking the Leonardo da Vinci of the dystopian film set, people!
Rachel, always quick with the wit, chimed in, “He’s really harnessed his ability.” Move over, art world, there’s a new visionary in town, and he’s armed with a notebook and a penchant for turning co-stars into botanical masterpieces.
The Hunger Games: The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes wasn’t just about survival and rebellion—it was a canvas for the blossoming romance and artistry of Rachel and Josh. May the laughs be ever in your favor!
