Actor Liam Hemsworth finally gets to make his mark with ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2’.

“He’s a really compelling, great actor,” original The Hunger Games director, Gary Ross, said of Australian talent, Liam Hemsworth. The younger brother of Thor and The Avengers star, Chris Hemsworth, this 25-year-old actor burst onto the international scene in the 2010 romantic drama,The Last Song, and is now enjoying major stardom, thanks to his eye catching presence in the aforementioned smash hit franchise, which closes out with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2.

You were involved a lot more in the last two Hunger Games movies…

“Yeah, a lot more. There’s a lot of action in these films. The most fun is when we have scenes where we’re all in the same room with Woody and Jennifer, Josh and Jeffrey Wright. There were a couple of different scenes throughout these last two films which were hard to get through because we’re all like little kids. It’s tough to get through takes sometimes.”

Who behaves the most like a little kid?
“Woody! Woody is like a little kid at all times, especially if he doesn’t have lines in a scene and the rest of you do have lines. He’ll just go all day long. He’s quite hard to work with sometimes.”

You shot both the movies back to back…

“It made the shoot a lot longer.”

Do you get on each other’s nerves working together for so long?

“No, we’re pretty lucky. You’d hate to do something for this long with people that you didn’t get along with. We’ve been together for years now, and we’re all really good friends. It makes those long days a lot easier when you enjoy being around them.”

How did you feel about the sad death of Philip Seymour Hoffman?
“Yeah, it’s very sad obviously…it was extremely sad. He was a good friend of everyone, a great actor, and a great person. It was really upsetting and very shocking.”

Gale has a much bigger role in this movie. Did you have to go, physically and emotionally, to places that you hadn’t been before?

“Yeah, physically a lot, and emotionally as well. Gale has been held back from doing anything in all these stories, and now all of a sudden he’s in a position where he’s able to fight back. He’s ready to go to war; he’s willing to do anything to take down The Capitol. I got injured so many times on these films just from doing stunts all day long. I like to do my own stunts, as much as they’ll allow me to do it. But it gets repetitive, and you get beaten up through the process. I do a lot of physical activity outside of work when I’m doing something like this. I train with all the stunt guys, and do various different sports: boxing, kick-boxing, running, sprinting and lifting things…”

Were there any new skills that you picked up from that training?

“Yeah, we did a lot of kick-boxing training beforehand with guys who have been doing kick-boxing for most of their lives. You learn a lot doing stuff like this with guys who really know what they’re doing.”

Do you ever train with your brother, Chris?
“We see each other here and there, but he’s constantly working and I’m working but, yeah, we train a little bit.”

Are you competitive when it comes to sport?

“Yeah! All brothers are competitive.

Are you a good loser?

“Am I a good loser? Yeah, I’m okay…”

What do you lose?!

“Nothing!”

Are you competitive when it comes to work?

“No, not when it comes to work, no, not at all. We’re both so thankful to be where we are, and we’re really happy for each other when we do anything so it’s complete support there. But sports? Very competitive!”

Aussie director, Philip Noyce, has said that the Australian male is more masculine than other men. Would you agree?
“Aaah, I don’t know. It’s a tough one.”

He said that it was because Australian men were so open. Do you agree with that?

“It’s a nice thing for him to say, although I don’t want to generalise too much because everyone is different. A lot of Australian men grow up in a similar environment; you grow up in trades, doing trade work and that kind of thing, and a lot of Australians possess a bluntness and a more straightforward way of looking at things…”

Maybe it’s in the Vegemite?

“Maybe it could be the Vegemite. I grew up on Vegemite. It’s the salt!”

Do you go home very often?

“I really miss Australia. I’ve been in the states for almost six years now. I miss where I grew up. I miss the simplicity of where I grew up; there are no traffic lights and things like that. I miss living in a small community and being somewhat disconnected from reality or the rest of the world; I miss that kind of life. I love visiting, and going back for periods of time, but right now, I travel so much anyway that I’m not really anywhere for an extended period of time.”

Is there anything that you miss from home?

“Fish and chips! Vegemite toast…I have Vegemite over here now, but it doesn’t taste the same; it tastes better in Australia.”

Do you seek out the shops here where you can buy Aussie food?

“You can buy Vegemite at World Market, but I haven’t found it. Someone else told me that, but I haven’t actually bought it. I usually get friends to bring it over. Or you can order it on-line. I’ve actually seen Tim-Tams in supermarkets over here. I don’t think they taste as good over here either!”

What will you miss the most about filming The Hunger Games?
“I’ll miss the relationships that we’ve all built, from the cast to the crew. The crew’s been the same since the beginning, and there are so many people that I’m really close friends with now. Towards the end of shooting, me and Jennifer would sit there and get quite emotional about the fact that it was coming to an end, and the fact that we wouldn’t be spending as much time with all these people. That’s what we’ll all miss the most.”

The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is released in cinemas on November 19.

Picture this: You’re hanging out with Liam Hemsworth and Jennifer Lawrence at his lavish home in Malibu, drinking wine and eating snacks while watching aVanderpump Rules marathon on Bravo. How amazing does that sound?

The best part is—that totally happens! Except you’re not actually part of the festivities (bummer, we know, but hey, we just put it out into the universe so who knows?!).

During the Mockingjay Part 2 panel at Comic-Con in San Diego today, the young actors were asked how they would compare the intensity of Hollywood and show business to the hunger games, and their answer offered some interesting (and hilarious) information.

“There are definitely crazy people in real life and in the hunger games,” Hemsworth answered, before J.Law added, “There certainly are. There’s people in Hollywood that have crazy hair just like in the capital…I don’t know.”

She added, “I mean, I guess there’s certain pressures but we don’t really feel the—again, Josh Hutcherson, Liam and I live on our own island in LA so it’s not like we’re…I don’t really feel the pressures of Hollywood. We’re just kind of always at Liam’s house in Malibu drinking wine. I got him hooked on reality TV.”

Liam interjected with a, “No,” but Lawrence didn’t let him get away with it. “You love Vanderpump Rules,” Jen said. “You do! It was Vanderpump Rules. He texted me weeks later and was like, ‘Kristen and whoever used to date?!'”

Aw, Liam, you’re just like us! We bet the actor was also stoked to hear that Tom Schwartz finally popped the question to longtime girlfriend Katie Maloney.

J.Law has never hidden the fact that she’s a huge reality TV fan, especially when it comes to Lisa Vanderpump‘s spin-off show. Don’t you remember that time the Oscar winner and her gal-pals gave the opening to the show their own touch while dining at SUR?

Epic.

DO YOU PROTECT YOUR LITTLE BROTHER?

Hemsworth and his two brothers are tight, their age differences serving as a natural—if not gentle—Hollywood mentoring program. Luke is 34, Chris is 31, and Liam is 24. Luke is the most recent Hollywood transplant, having moved his family from Melbourne last year. Liam has been in L.A. nearly as long as Chris—originally flown in by Marvel to screen-test for the role of Thor. He didn’t get the gig, obviously, but has managed to console himself with a starring role in the Hunger Games saga, a (now broken) engagement to Miley Cyrus, and legit teen-heartthrob status.

“I’ve watched Liam do things I did at his age, like being in relationships he shouldn’t be in, or being reckless just to prove a point. And I had no empathy. My mom had to remind me I was the same way.” In his defense Hemsworth says he got plenty of shit from Luke when he was starting out—and that it may have saved his career.

“Back when I was still on the soap, I became incredibly insecure and full of anxiety because I didn’t know if I was any good. Yet I wanted it so bad. I spent years being angsty, constantly telling people I wasn’t just part of a soap opera, that I was a real artist. And I remember Luke sort of snapping, telling me to shut up, that he was sick of hearing it.” He credits Luke for pulling him out of his head and making him a less self-conscious actor. That, and Dancing with the Stars. Hemsworth competed on the Aussie version in 2006, finishing fifth. “After that show, I could never pull the serious, self-important card again.”
