Josh Hutcherson already has many admirable accomplishments under his belt, but his fans have been floored to discover a new skill of his.
Hutcherson, who is best known for starring in the likes of Bridge to Terebithia, Journey to the Center of the Earth, and The Hunger Games franchise, has most recently starred in the new horror, Five Nights at Freddy's.
The actor stars as Mike Schmidt in the film, and features Scream's Matthew Lillard and You actress, Elizabeth Lail.
The movie hit cinemas across the globe earlier this month and, as you'd expect, the celebs have been jetting around to promote it.
And as part of the promo, Hutcherson was able to address a whole host of fans and potential new movie-goers by speaking in fluent Spanish.
His impressive language skills has come as a surprised to many, with some even joking that the 31-year-old can speak it better than some Spanish-speaking celebrities.
"He speaks better Spanish than Jennifer Lopez," quipped one person.
"He's a super talent," said another.
"DIDN'T KNOW HE COULD SPEAK SPANISH," exclaimed someone else.
Another person went on: "Damn his Spanish actually good," while others hailed him as a 'bilingual king'.
The pair met on the set Escobar: Paradise Lost, which is the reason Hutcherson began learning Spanish in the first place.
Before starring in the film, the actor said he didn't know a word of the language.
"I didn't know any Spanish, so I had to learn," he told Entertainment Tonight ahead of the movie's release.
"There was a lot more of the script where it was going to be in Spanish but I went to Andrea [Di Stefano] the day before the shoot like, 'Andrea... this is still all in Spanish and I don't know it!'"
Following Escobar: Paradise Lost, Hutcherson starred in an episode of Spanish TV series, Paquita Salas.
His brief cameo again surprised fans as he spoke in the language fluently.
"Forever impressed by Josh Hutcherson’s Spanish," someone said on TikTok last year, alongside a clip of a scene the actor was in.
The snippet shows Hutcherson helping his real-life girlfriend, Traisac, putting up bunting in a little town.
