Kevin Winter/Getty Images(LOS ANGELES) — Josh Hutcherson, the 19-year-old star of The Hunger Games, has been photographed leaving a Los Angeles grocery store with a bottle of alcohol, reports TMZ.

The actor, who plays Peeta Mellark in the hit movie, allegedly used a fake ID to obtain the bottle of Macallan Whiskey. Just a few weeks ago, Josh spoke on camera to TMZ saying, “I think the age to go to war is 18…so I think the drinking age should be 18 as well.” A representative for Hutcherson has not commented on the matter.

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