"Me and really all of Jennifer's friends have been there for her," he tells Life & Style. "Jennifer's great. Everything's happening for her with the awards and everything. I couldn't be more proud of her."

As Life & Style reported, Jennifer and Nicholas broke up in January after dating two years.

"They're young and grew apart," the 22-year-old actress' pal tells Life & Style. "But they remain friends."

So what about a future love interest? "It's got to be someone amazing because she's amazing," Josh shares.

Speaking of romance, the 20-year-old actor even reavealed his philosophy on love to Life & Style.

"I think it’s a thing that happens with two people and it’s like, you love them for loving you and vice versa," Josh, who will star in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire with Jennifer in November, says. "It has to be a very mutual kind of [thing]. It can’t be like weighted to one side or the other. It has to be a very mutual exchange."

Swoon. We love a guy who's in touch with his feelings.
