It got REALLY uncomfortable between Liam Hemsworth and a reporter at Comic-Con. The ‘Hunger Games’ actor though the interviewer confused him for his brother, Chris Hemsworth, and it looked like Liam was about to lose it! Yikes!
Awk-ward. Note to self: Liam Hemsworth, 25, does NOT like being mistaken for his brother, Chris Hemsworth, 31. One unlucky reporter found this out the hard way while speaking to Liam at Comic-Con. A simple bit of miscommunication made Liam lose his cool and, for a moment, it seemed like things were going to get ugly!
Liam stopped on July 8 to speak to HitFix’s Chris Eggertsen while they were on the Comic-Con Red Carpet. Liam was on hand, along with Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, to talk about the final entry in The Hunger Games movie franchise, reports Daily Mail. It must have been very loud in the convention hall, because when Chris introduced himself, Liam though the reported confused him for his brother!
“You call me Chris?” Liam immediately asked and wow, if Liam’s look could kill, the reporter would have been dead. “Liam,” Liam said, reminding the reporter who he was. “You called me Chris, didn’t you?” Uh-oh. It looked like Liam was about to bolt from the interview, but Chris clarified that he had introduced himself and didn’t mistake Liam for the Thor star.
Thankfully, Liam realized the mistake. He laughed and let out a sigh of relief. “That would have been really embarrassing,” Chris said, probably glad to see Liam laugh it off. “You’re Chris. I’m Liam. We’re good,” said Liam, clearing that up before they started their interview.
It seems Liam might have been mistaken for his brother once before, because it clearly put him on edge! Don’t worry, Liam. After this video, no one will mistake you for Chris again!
Despite this mix-up, Liam has a lot to be happy about. Not only does he have a huge movie coming out with The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2, he reportedly has a new romance with his Independence Day co-star Maika Monroe! The two reportedly attended a July 4th party together, and Liam reportedly had his her butt as she was grinding into him! They even reportedly made out at the bar!
What did you think about the video, HollywoodLifers? Should Liam be more cool about this mix-up, or was he right to be as mad as he was?
