Liam Hemsworth Wanted to be Kelly Slater


Liam Hemsworth covers GQ magazine!

And I’m not talking about longing to be the spawn of Kelly Kapowski and AJ Slater. Although that would be pretty effing sweet.

Liam Hemsworth’s star is about to get rocked. In other words, he better be ready to rake in the dough (and deal with the insane press) with The Hunger Games release in theaters this month. In a recent interview with GQ magazine, Hunger Games’ Gale talks losing the role of Thor to his brother Chris Hemsworth, his parents and Miley. We’ve got the highlights and the sexy photos from the shoot here.

Peep them below:

ON WHAT HE WANTED TO BE AS A KID:

“I surfed competitively and made it to the state rounds where I was competing with the top surfers in Victoria. We travelled everywhere. All my friends were surfers. All we wanted to be was Kelly Slater.”

ON LOSING THOR TO BROTHER CHRIS HEMSWORTH:

“Look, Chris is six-and-a-half years older than me so there’s this thing where if I’d got Thor, that would have been weird. The way I look at this is, better Chris than someone else. Believe me, Chris and I spent most of our lives beating each other up. At this point, we’re just happy not to be fist-fighting over who gets to sit in the front seat.”
On his parents: “My parents are good people who do good things for others. It can be a challenging example to live up to.”

ON BEING HOMESICK:

“My family and friends back in Australia have missed this part of my life; and it’s been a big part. That’s tough. I’m growing up without them. My parents don’t Skype. It’s tough with the time difference. I miss Australia a lot.”

MILEY CYRUS RECALLS MEETING LIAM ON SET OF LAST SONG:

“I got a little bit nervous about how big he was, in height. I was like, ‘I’m going to have to stand on apple boxes or something.’”

I hope Miley is ready for the madness that is about to thrown at her boyfriend!
