Liam Hemsworth
ate 45 White Castle burgers and then vomited them up ... and now the fast food chain is offering him $20,000 to a charity of his choice ... because they were impressed. Yeah.

Liam told the story to "Jimmy Kimmel" earlier this month ... while filming "Hunger Games" he and Josh Hutcherson went to White Castle and split about 90 burgers -- only to puke them up later, due to burger overload.

A rep for White Castle tells TMZ ... it's impressed Liam could down that many burgers in one sitting and wants to induct Liam into the White Castle Hall of Fame (apparently that's a thing). Even better, WC wants to donate $20,000 to a charity of his choice.

Sorry Josh, you get nothing. Maybe some mouthwash.

I'm Not Jealous of J-Law

... I'm PROUD!

011513_josh_hutcherson_launch
Josh Hutcherson says he's absolutely THRILLED that his "Hunger Games" co-star Jennifer Lawrence crushed it at the Golden Globes this weekend ... but admits he's ready to score an award of his own.

Josh was strollin' around Beverly Hills yesterday ... and told us he was "very proud" when Will Ferrell announced J-Law as the Best Actress winner for her role in "Silver Linings Playbook."

In fact, Josh says he tried to call Jen to congratulate her on the win ... but she's too sick to talk ... possibly the result of standing too close to Hugh Jackman who was BRAGGING about his flu symptoms during the GGs.

Of course, there's no real way to prove Hugh infected Jennifer -- but we're totally blaming him anyway.

Get your flu shots people.

911 Emergency

On My Front Lawn

Exclusive Details

0626_jennifer_lawrence_x172Frightening moment for "Hunger Games" star Jennifer Lawrence yesterday -- when an underage girl collapsed on the front lawn of her L.A. apartment complex.

The Santa Monica Police Department tells TMZ ... Lawrence was out walking her dog ... when she noticed a random girl laid out on her back.

As Jennifer rushed to assist the young woman, someone in the area called 911 ... and paramedics raced to the scene.

Cops tell us ... "The young lady who collapsed was a juvenile and was part of a group that was together." 

It's unclear why the young woman was in front of Jennifer's home ... but cops say, "Alcohol may have played a role in the incident."

We're told paramedics didn't feel the girl needed to be transported to a hospital -- instead, she was treated on the scene and cleared to leave.

So far, no word back from Lawrence's camp.

Snags Heath Ledger's

$3 Million Treehouse!

5/22/2012 3:37 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Heath Ledger Treehouse
First a new nose, now a new house -- "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson just nabbed an incredible $3 million Hollywood Hills mansion ... previously owned by Heath Ledger.

The 1,861 sq. ft. pad -- locally dubbed the "treehouse" because of its surrounding dense foliage -- has had many celebrity owners ... including Ellen DeGeneres, who sold the place to Heath and his then-girlfriend Michelle Williams in 2005.

As we reported, the 2-bedroom 2-bath house was listed last September for $2.995 million.

It's unclear if Josh paid full price ... but seeing as the odds are ever in his favor, we doubt it.

Thanks to Zillow.com for the heads up.

Josh Hutcherson's nose was BROKEN IN A CRAZY BAR FIGHT ... would have been a much cooler explanation than the one he gave us yesterday.

The "Hunger Games" star was out in Beverly Hills ... sans nose bandages ... when we asked about the mystery surrounding his messed up honker.

In case you haven't been following ... earlier this month, Josh said he underwent surgery for a "broken nose" -- but he wouldn't explain how it happened.

His rep later insisted the nose wasn't broken ... and the surgery was merely to correct a deviated septum.

WHO TO BELIEVE???

Josh finally explained himself yesterday ... and his story could finally end the mystery forever!!!

The Mystery of the

Broken Nose

Josh Hutcherson and his broken nose
With his face bruised and bandaged up, "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson was spotted leaving a doctor's office in Beverly Hills on Monday ... after suffering a mysterious injury to his nose.

Hutcherson first tweeted about the injury on May 9th ... saying, "Just had surgery to fix my broken nose" ... and later his rep told us the actor had been diagnosed with a deviated septum.

But there's one big question -- how DID the 19-year-old movie star break his nose? 

Josh isn't saying ... and neither is his rep ... who told TMZ "no further details will be released."

Tricks Grocery Store

Into Selling Him Whiskey

EXCLUSIVE

Josh Hutcherson took a not-so-cheap shot at a Ralphs Grocery store
19-year-old "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson took a not-so-cheap shot at a Ralph's Grocery store -- he posed as over 21 and got the check out clerk to sell him an expensive bottle of whiskey.

We got this pic of Josh leaving the Ralph's in Sherman Oaks on April 18 with a bottle of Macallan whisky in hand -- which, by the way, goes for $170.

A source tells TMZ ... Josh used a fake ID to score the bottle.

It's interesting ... a few weeks ago we got Josh on camera, grousing, "I think the age to go to war is 18 ... so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well."

A spokesperson for Ralphs tells TMZ, "We strictly enforce all laws relating to the sale of alcohol to minors.  We will investigate these allegations and take any steps necessary."

Josh could be prosecuted and the maximum punishment is 6 months in jail, although in reality he'd spend no time behind bars.  Authorities could also go after Ralph's for selling to a minor.

We reached out to Josh's rep.  So far, no comment.

U.S. Should LOWER

Boozing Age to 18

EXCLUSIVE

0412_josh_hutcherson_video
If 18-year-olds can fire a shot in war ... they should be able to take a shot in a bar ... so says "Hunger Games" star Josh Hutcherson.

Hutcherson was leaving STK last night when we asked a question inspired by his 19-year-old co-star Alexander Ludwig ... who triggered an investigation when he left a 21+ bar in Hollywood this week.

Hutcherson tells us the drinking age in America simply doesn't make sense -- saying, "I think the age to go to war is 18 ... so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well."

Hutcherson raises a good point ... so we gotta ask ...

Alexander Ludwig at The Sayers Club in Hollywood.

11:50 AM PT: We're told the California Dept. of Alcoholic Beverage Control has just opened an investigation into The Sayers Club over the Ludwig photos. A rep for the ABC tells TMZ, "We're looking into it."

0314_divider_graphic
"Hunger Games" star Alexander Ludwig blew off some steam Tuesday night by kicking back at The Sayers Club in Hollywood -- problem is, he's 19 and the club cannot legally allow anyone in who is under 21.

The pic on the left shows Alexander at an event earlier in the evening.  Then we got more pics -- shot at around 11:45 PM -- showing Alexander, wearing the same leather jacket and skinny jeans -- covering his face leaving Sayers.

The California Dept. of Alcoholic Beverage Control tells TMZ ... Sayers has a Type 48 license, meaning only patrons 21 and over can enter. 

Robbie McKay, Director of Communications for Sayers, tells TMZ when security spotted Ludwig inside the club he was asked to leave.

BTW, Alexander is from Canada, where you can go to bars when you're 18 or 19, depending on the province.  Welcome to America, Alex!
