Sibling rivalry is one thing, but tensions in the Hemsworth household sound like they were downright deadly at one point — though it’s supposedly all in good fun.
During an appearance on “The Graham Norton Show,” [via DigitalSpy] Liam Hemsworth shined a little bit of light on his childhood with brother and fellow movie star Chris Hemsworth. “Our childhood rivalry was a bit vicious — a bit like the ‘Hunger Games,’ actually,” he admits.
Granted, they didn’t kill anyone but it sure came close.
“We had a few incidents with weapons — I never had any problems with Luke because he was so much older and I didn’t mess with him, but with Chris we were very like-minded, very stubborn and would often get into arguments, and because I was so much younger and smaller I had to use weapons to fight,” he remembers. “So one day when I was about 5, we had a fight in the kitchen about using the toaster or something, and I picked up a kitchen knife and threw it at his head and the handle hit him in the forehead.”
Can you imagine Gale from “The Hunger Games” killing Thor from the Marvel Cinematic Universe? There’s a mashup you never thought you’d see.
So was Liam really trying to murder his brother? Of course not. He explains, “I could have hit him with the other end if I’d wanted to — it was just a warning shot!”
While Liam seems rather confident about his knife-throwing skills, let’s all be thankful he didn’t accidentally kill his brother.
At least they seem to get along much better now.
