Liam Hemsworth’s Men’s Health September 2012 Cover
The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth has covered the Men’s Health September 2012 issue. The actor talked about his workouts and love for food. Hemsworth shared that before he became an actor he wanted to be a surfer.
Every day, before and after school. I wanted to surf for the rest of my life. It’s what all my friends did—I even had it as a subject in school for a number of years.
When the actor was preparing for the role in Hunger Games he lost 20 pounds in a month thile trying to experience a feeling of being constantly hungry.
My character was spending most of his life in a state of hunger, and I wanted to get a sense of that, physically and mentally.
Training for The Hunger Games, I literally had to wait a half hour after each session before I drove anywhere. I had to lay on the ground until I could breathe properly again.
It was tough because I’m an eater. If I have one addiction in life, it’s probably food.
Boxing is currently the actor’s sport of choice.
I love going to the gym, sweating, running around, feeling like I’m having a heart attack. I like the physical side of boxing—it’s fun to punch a bag for 20 minutes—but I also feel mentally strong when I box. I feel good in my own body.
