Liam Hemsworth. biography
Liam Hemsworth, born on January 13, 1990, in Melbourne, Australia, is the younger brother of actors Chris Hemsworth and Luke Hemsworth.
Mimicking his older brothers’ early start in acting, Liam landed his first audition at the age of 16 and made appearances in the Australian television series Home and Away (2007) and McLeod’s Daughters (2007).
The young actor was then offered a reoccurring role on the soap opera Neighbours (2007-2008), followed by supporting roles in the Australian TV shows The Elephant Princess (2008-2009) and Satisfaction (2007).
A short time later, Liam decided to move to Los Angeles to pursue the Hollywood big-screen career that his brothers had sought. Liam struggled to launch his career in the beginning, having his character cut from The Expendables (2010) and losing the lead role of Thor (2011) to his brother Chris.
The young star popped up on Hollywood’s radar after starring opposite Miley Cyrus as lovers in Nicholas Spark’s romantic drama The Last Song (2010). The high profile romance continued off-screen, resulting in more press time for Liam’s rising stardom and a lead role as Gale Hawthorne in the film-adaptation of the best-selling novel The Hunger Games (2012). The film was a box office hit and Liam soon found himself landing a supporting role in The Expendables 2 (2012)
Liam's most recent projects include, the drama Love and Honor (2012), the crime-drama Empire State (2013) with Dwayne Johnson, the thriller Paranoia (2013) alongside Harrison Ford, The Hunger Games: Catching Fire (2013), the thriller Cut Bank (2014) with John Malkovich, The Hunger Games: Part 1 (2014), The Hunger Games: Part 2 (2015)
Liam Hemsworth Girlfriend, Fiancé & Dating History Timeline
September 2009 – August 2010
Liam and Miley Cyrus met while shooting The Last Song (2010), in which they played each other’s love interest. Cyrus later admitted that Liam is “my first serious boyfriend,” but the two broke up in August 2010.
April 2011 – September 2013
Liam and Cyrus’ on-again, off-again romance ignited once more in 2011. Liam spent little time as the boyfriend, before proposing to Cyrus on May 31. Cyrus recently revealed the details surrounding the event on The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, saying it all went down after she sang “Lilac Wine” during a backyard-practice-session.
“About 20 minutes after that song – it’s one Liam’s favorite songs – he asked me to marry him,” Miley told Jay Leno. “While I was singing that I had no idea! He was sitting there and I’m like, ‘He’s looking at me funny!’ And then I knew.”
In the summer of 2012, Cyrus and Liam got linked tattoos together. Cyrus’s tattoo reads, “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat,” a passage from Theodore Roosevelt’s speech “Citizenship in A Republic.” Liam’s tattoo reflects the same theme, which reads, “If he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
When Cyrus was photographed hanging out at a pool in Miami with Cheyne Thomas, shortly after announcing her engagement to Liam in June 2012, rumors that Cyrus was cheating spread throughout the web and magazines like wild fires. Her rep quickly squashed the rumors, saying, “There’s no story there.” Reportedly, Thomas is Cyrus’ friend and assistant.
Despite all the gossip, Cryus and Liam claimed they were still planning to wed. But, that all changed when they officially called off their engagement in September 2013.
