Vanity Fair’s Krista Smith sits down with star of The Dressmaker at the Toronto International Film Festival.

Have you ever gazed at the glory of Chris and Liam Hemsworth and wondered what, exactly, was in the water in Melbourne, Australia? That’s essentially the question Vanity Fair senior West Coast editor Krista Smith asked Liam, star of the Toronto Film Festival entry The Dressmaker. The younger Hemsworth jokes, “My mom was vegetarian my whole life and still is. So we ate a lot of vegetarian meals growing up. So maybe that’s the key. More plant-based meals.” Not since Popeye have veggies had such a ringing endorsement. And Liam’s veggie-loving ways may come as a relief to the newest lady in his life: Miss Piggy.

But it wasn’t all kale salads and “kumbaya” in the Hemsworth household. Liam also remembers the time he flung a knife at his brother Chris’s head. Only the handle hit that god-like face, thank Odin. Both Hemsworth brothers got their start on the two biggest soaps in Australia—Neighbours and Home and Away—and Liam reflects fondly on the experience. And all this Australian-themed reflection couldn’t be more apt because The Dressmaker is actually the first film where Liam gets to speak in his native accent. He uses it to romance a well-tailored Kate Winslet in the rough and tumble outback. Whatever would Miss Piggy say?
