Liam Hemsworth Talks Miley Cyrus, Marriage Proposals & ‘The Hunger Games’ Sequel [AUDIO]
“The Hunger Games” is finally upon us and we brought Gale Hawthorne aka Liam Hemsworth in to talk to “On Air with Ryan Seacrest” about his relationship with Miley Cyrus, and the shooting schedule for “The Hunger Games” sequel “Catching Fire.” Be sure to listen to the entire interview to hear Liam talk to ‘The Hunger Games’ fans!
On Miley Cyrus & Fan Proposals:
“No, not at all…She’s [Miley] one of the biggest stars in the world, there’s no shadowing her. She embraces it, she’s very very happy for me. I’ve had a few marriage proposals from 12 year old girls! It’s really an awkward question to get a marriage proposal from someone you don’t know at all, and who doesn’t know you!”
On Hunger Games Part 2 Shooting Schedule:
“No one’s given us a start date yet. I think…we will probably shoot it later this year.”
On Getting Into Shape:
“I did. No one said it to me, personally. They got a personal trainer…and I just proceeded to lose a lot of weight. I was eating a lot less. My brother [Chris] was a big part of it also. He texted me and said, ‘It’s called ‘Hunger Games,’ not ‘Eating Games.’”
When Did You First Read The Books?
“A year and a half ago, or a year ago now? When I read the books I always connected to my character more, I played Gale Hawthorne. I always thought that I could play him the best. The thing about Gale is that he is extremely passionate about not siding with these games. He doesn’t want to be apart of them. He’s trying to fight back. He’s trying to find a way to get away from it. I thought that if I was in that situation that I would do the same thing.”
Do You Think Your Life Will Change After The Opening?
“I haven’t slept in probably three weeks….Just running on adrenaline most of the time. It’s kind of finally here. I’ve been waiting a while for people to see it, and I’ve been talking about it a lot. The expectation just keeps getting bigger and bigger. I’m really excited for people to see it.”
Do You Like The Movie?
“It is…it’s a really really good movie. It’s honestly one of the most powerful films I’ve seen. I mean Gary Ross has done an incredible job.”
‘The Hunger Games’ is now in theaters!
