Liam Hemsworth is an Australian actor with an estimated net worth of $16 million. He was born on January 13, 1990 in Melbourne, Australia. His mother is Leonie, an English teacher. His father is Craig, a social-services counselor. He has two brothers, both older, one being famous actor Chris Hemsworth. His other brother, Luke, is also an actor. The three grew up very close as children, and they have always been very close. They work together, they go after the same jobs, and they are certainly not afraid of a little friendly competition. Growing up, he spent most of his time living on an island and surfing with his brothers. His family is very close, and they have always been so.
In 2007, Liam Hemsworth decide that he wanted to enter the world of acting like his brothers. He loved to participate in school plays, but he’d never considered it as a professional job at that point. He actually worked as someone who installed floors for a living, so he didn’t have much going for him after he was done with school in terms of what he wanted to do for the rest of his life. When he made the decision to begin acting, he had no idea just how far his career would take him. He began at 16 working on guest appearances on local shows in his Australian area. He began working regularly on a show that his older brother had starred in previously, and he was becoming quite well known in the area.
However, it was not until he was a little bit older that he was asked to try out for the role of Thor. However, his older brother Chris was given the role. That was not the end of the line for him, though. He was cast as the lead male role in a movie based on a book written by famed author Nicholas Sparks called “The Last Song,” in which he co-starred with Miley Cyrus. He also began starring in her music videos, and then he was cast in the very famous role of Gale, the best friend and partial love interest of Jennifer Lawrence’s character Katniss Everdeen in the majorly famous movies, “The Hunger Games.”
While he is a great actor with many amazing roles to his name, it’s often his personal life that people want to know more about when discussing Liam Hemsworth. He met and worked with Miley Cyrus twice in the beginning of his career, and the two fell in love. They dated for a while and were engaged for a time before calling it off. Now they are back together and engaged again, planning their wedding and not really discussing their relationship with the press. He is also a vegan, and he has a big role in supporting the Australian Childhood Foundation thanks to the fact that he has what he refers to as amazing parents and he wants other kids to have the same chance and feel the same love that he has his entire life.
