Further evidence: The 19-year-old was spotted coming out of a Beverly Hills doctor's office with a bandage over his schnoz and confirmed the surgery with this tweet:
"just had surgery to fix my broken nose. recovery sucks...thank god for a marathon on lifetime...#theclientlist thanks @thereal_jlh."
Fans seemed shocked -- not because the actor watches Jennifer Love Hewitt on Lifetime, but that he had surgery: @Thatsclare posted: "oh, josh!!! hope you are better now! how did that happen?" Madster1144 asked, "what? when did you break your nose?" A third added, "woah woah woah, how'd @jhutch1992 break his nose anyone know?"
Here's what we know: The star's rep told TMZ that he had gone under the knife for a deviated septum. The rep wasn't saying how the 19-year-old broke his nose in the first place, telling the gossip site, "no further details will be released."
The star can enjoy plenty of well wishes while he's resting up. Posts like this one from @hutchersonfan were typical: "awww glad he is recovering." Another added, "get well soon," and @withHutcherson chimed in,"I think he is beautiful inside and out."
Once the bandage is off, he's sure to look even better.
