There is no magic difference between the F word and saying "Sleeping with." It can't hurt you. So do what I did a long time ago and DECIDE that's it's no big deal. And magically...it becomes no big deal. ...just my opinion...
Can someone tell me though exactly what the person asked at the panel? Did he ask if Peter was going to be having a threesome with Liv and Alt-Live or was the question about if Josh was sleeping with Anna? Awkward either way, but...I'm just curious

Stuck in wall
I don't recall exactly...I was at the panel but it was something along the lines of possible threesome with Olivia/Peter/BOlivia...I think Josh was just embarassed for his co-star...
yeah I actually ended up finding what was asked by just googling "Comic Con Fringe Panel Threesome" lol. Love the internet!
Also on the topic from before, it is also my opinion that no where does it say that when Josh decided to pursue his dream of acting that he in any way signed up to be a role model. Just because someone is in the public eye does not automatically make him have to live up to this. He is just another guy doing his job, and he's smart enough to know not to say the F word at the kid's choice awards, but he also didn't sign up to change who he is or how he talks when in adult company. It is up to each viewer to decide whether to let that bother them or whether to not watch him anymore. Josh has never seemed to want to be a role model. He just seems like a guy who wants to act, love his fans, and be who he is. I mean the guy did get arrested for being drunk and disorderly at a hockey game. I think role model went out the window then. It's not fair to expect so much of someone just because they are on tv. Let them live their lives. ...again, just my opinion. I just don't think people should look for their role models in actors anyway, unless that actor has personally and publicly stepped up to that plate themselves. Find role models in educators, etc.

I agree and disagree with what you said, Kebo. Sure, they don't sign up for it, but they are still scrutinised.
I've read alot of his interviews (I do that with actors that are on shows I like) and this is the first time I've been abit surprised with a word he's used. His interviews are normally great, expressive, funny and interesting. Not sure why he felt the need to use the word he did. I sensed he was very annoyed/embarassed about the whole thing. As other have stated he could of used a different word, but probably wasn't thinking at the time because he was showing how annoyed he was.
The thing that sort of surprised me was that the site didn't put a bleep over it. Or, cut that bit out. Sure they put a disclaimer, but unfortunately, that disclaimer didn't go to other places that copied the interview. The site obviously thought the disclaimer was enough, and in doing so didn't have a problem with it. Unfortunately, actors are put on a pedistal and treated like rolemodels. Personally, I just don't think they should be rolemodels. There are people out in the world that I consider better suited for being rolemodels to kids. However, that's society today but they are humans and they make mistakes like everybody else. Sure, Josh could have done a better job and not used the word, but on the flip side, the site could have done something about the word as well. I'm sure if it was pointed out to him, it would give him food for thought.
On the hockey thing, it came about because he was trying to help a friend. In a recent interview, Josh said it was a big misunderstanding. His friend's girlfriend was being severely harassed by somebody and he stepped in to help his friend. Within the group of people trying to sort it out, he grabbed the wrong person.

Do you have that interview? I'd love to read it. I always knew there had to be more to that story.
Can I also just add that Josh says the F word quite a bit ... and this wasn't the first interview either. And the mention of using that language around Anna... she says it all the time too...and in interviews. A recent one in fact. I'm guessing the two of them can joke around together and use this language all the time, as I do with my guy friends. Maybe it's because I'm not surprised at his choice of word that it doesn't bother me as much as some. Or maybe I just needed a better role model as a kid. haha...kidding.

Agree, about the cast using the F word, Kebo. The blooper reel says it all.
It's the first time I've seem him use it in that context though. He only went there because he was asked about it. Josh is an easy going guy and he was clearly embarassed for Anna but also for the whole audience and his girlfriend was there too. Having said that, as you pointed out, Anna used the word for the same purposes in an interview recently. In front of Josh and John. This interview was scribed on paper, so they just put the F and blanked out the rest (you still knew what she said though). So, she obviously felt comfortable enough to say it around them. They all seem to get on well with each other.
The info about the hockey is from two different places. In the interview recently he just mentioned how it was a misunderstanding and he grabbed the wrong guy. The other stuff I came across by accident when the show first started. It was from somebody who knew what happened, because she was friends with the people that Josh went with. I can't remember where I read it as it was ages ago. However, in old interviews I've heard Josh say that he was helping a friend out.
I actually just last night found an old episode of The Daily Show with John Stuart where he tells the whole story. It's actually pretty hilarious and I love how open he is about the whole thing. Ironically at the end of the interview he totally drops an F bomb (bleeped). I'll link to it if I'm allowed. I don't know if that breaks any rules because it's from The Daily Show.

Josh trys to be entertaining on talk shows. So, not surprised he did that about the incident. He has said recently though, that the whole thing was pretty traumatic for him, as you could imagine.
That interview must be a very old one, as I have never seen it brought up in interviews in recent years, until recently. It happened along time ago, now. I don't think you can link. I wouldn't do it, just to be on the safe side. You don't want to be banned.
