Wes Bentley Comes Out of His Cave for 'The Hunger Games'


Wes Bentley, who disappeared for a while after his role as Ricky Fitts in American Beauty, is back as Seneca Crane in The Hunger Games, and is also rolling around in a towel and the dirt in the new issue of Flaunt.

Bentley talks about why he went away, and why he's back: “I feel really fired up and there was a reason I didn’t have that feeling when I was younger. I’m glad that I can realize that through all the mess. I was waiting for the right moment, and that moment is now."

  1. I'm so glad he was able to get clean.

  2. Uh, he's been in about a dozen movies since American Beauty. But not a single one of them is memorable so I can see why he's pushing this "I've been away" story.

  3. He was a heroin addict... so there's that... let's hope he doesn't screw up his second break like some of them do...

  4. Aside from his drug habit, word had it he had a monstrous ego and was impossible to work with. Hope he's over it.

  5. In other photos from the past, he looks like a total d-bag. Here, he looks very appealing.

  6. All I saw on my iPhone was "Wes Bentley Comes Out", and my heart nearly stopped. I've been in love with him since "American Beauty". Hotness defined.

  7. I will never forgive the photographer for not taking pictures of him with his arms up. NEVER!
