Hunger Games Hottie Liam Hemsworth Knows the Power of a Really Good, Emotional Hug
Nov. 20 marks the end of an era: the final Hunger Games movie hits theaters. The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part 2 is the fourth installment in the record-setting blockbuster franchise, which stars the young Hollywood holy trilogy of Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss Everdeen, Josh Hutcherson as Peeta Mellark, and Liam Hemsworth as Gale Hawthorne. So far, the first three movies have been seen by millions and the final one, with its epic finale, will answer the two questions the films have asked all along: Who will take over the world and, more importantly, who will Katniss choose to love?
Even if you read the books and know what happens, Hemsworth promises this final flick will blow you away. We caught up with him recently at the Toronto International Film Festival (where he was promoting his period drama The Dressmaker), and he divulged that viewers won't be disappointed. "This was my favorite film," he said. "It’s really fast-paced. We go into the Capitol, and it feels like, at any moment, the whole place could blow up or one of us could get shot. All of the films have so much at stake, but this one is like no other because you feel that anything could happen."
It also holds extra weight because it was emotional ending for the cast. They have worked together since 2011. "Our last day of shooting we were in Berlin and Jen, Josh, Woody [Harrelson], and myself hugged at the end," said the 25-year-old Aussie. "That moment, we came to the realization that we didn’t have another movie to come back to together. Over the last few years, we’ve established such close relationships with one another and really became best friends and shared an important part of our lives together. That is something we will always remember and hold onto. It is sad that we won’t be able to do this again."
So, what will he do now? That's TBD. "I feel like my mind changes on what I want do in the future all the time," he said. "Every week I feel differently about everything in my life." With the final Hunger Games due out soon and his next action film, Independence Day: Resurgence, coming out next year, we're sure he'll be just fine.
