When NovaFM's Merrick, Dools & Ricki-Lee caught up with Liam Hemsworth in Australia, no topic was taboo. Sex, going down on his knees, topless movie scenes and his new romantic flick The Last Song.
Action movie fan Mez couldn't help pressing the macho button:
"Now that your first major Hollywood film was a romance film with a sad tinge to it, is that a channel you’ll now follow? Lots of people may look at you and think that you could do action films…"
“I love actors like Matt Damon and Leonardo DiCaprio so I want to try and follow the films that they’ve done and try to do stuff like that. Romantic stuff is what I find the hardest… kissing in front of a lot of people, over and over and trying to look intimate. I’d rather just go out and shoot some people with a gun and cut people’s heads off with a sword.”
So there you have it. Not such a soppy chap now.
If you want to see Hemsworth with his top off, The Last Song is out on April 1st 2010. It won’t be heavy on the blood and gore though; face sucking with Miley Cyrus is as violent as it gets.
Oh, and in case you want more proof that Hemsworth is a manly sort... he didn't cry during The Notebook.
