Liam Hemsworth knows what it feels like to be the center of attention, especially now that his film The Hunger Games has taken over the box office. But despite what people think, Liam says he's still the same guy who left Phillip Island, Australia to make it big in Hollywood, insisting he hasn't "changed" at all.
“I haven’t really changed that much. I still do the things that I’ve always done. It’s just that I’m at a different level now in terms of my career," Liam tells Hong Kong's Prestige magazine in a new interview.
"I’m able to meet extremely talented filmmakers and writers and directors — everyone in the business. I’m just in a different position than I’ve ever been in. But, you know, my personal life hasn’t changed," he adds. "I still go surfing and hang out with friends. I just feel very lucky to be where I am and to be able to make movies.”
Liam finds inspiration in othr Aussie actors who have made it in the business, including the late Heath Leder who he calls his "favorite."
“Heath Ledger was one I was always a big fan of. He was kind of the closest to my age and was just an incredible actor," Liam reveals to the magazine. "And obviously guys like Russell Crowe and Hugh Jackman — there are just so many talented Australian actors over here."
"But I think Heath Ledger was my favorite out of all of those," Liam adds, "and just simply an inspiration.”
And we're sure Liam looks up to his big brothers, Luke and Chris Hemsworth, too!
