‘Naughty’ Hemsworth opens about childhood

Liam Hemsworth has revealed that he was a naughty kid who got thrown out of class in school.


The Australian hunk has become one of the hottest names in Hollywood thanks to roles in big budget movies such as The Hunger Games franchise and The Expendables 2.

He’s also had a high-profile engagement to and subsequent split from pop tearaway Miley Cyrus.

Hemsworth says life now is a far a cry from his childhood growing up with brothers, and fellow actors, Chris and Luke in Melbourne, Australia.

“I was a naughty kid,” he tells British magazine Now.

Before making it big in Hollywood a 17-year-old Liam landed a role in the popular soap Neighbours, which also launched the careers of Guy Pearce, Kylie Minogue and Margot Robbie.

But his teenage fame was short lived and he ended up sanding floors before his Hollywood break came about.

“When I came back to school after Neighbours I just didn’t want to be there anymore. My head wasn’t in the same place and I knew I had to get out.

“I was the troublemaker in school, I got kicked out of class loads of times. So I left school and went on laying floors while I auditioned for parts,” he says.

It was 24-year-old Hemsworth’s older brother Chris who made it big in tinseltown first, which Liam says left him feeling deflated until he landed a role in 2010’s The Last Song.

“I was sitting in my manager’s house with Chris. He’d booked Thor and we were so happy for him. But at the same time I realised I’d probably have to go back home. I was devastated and I felt like an idiot for leaving Australia,” Hemsworth reminisces.
