Wait, what? In a shocking new interview, Liam Hemsworth reveals that he and Chris had a pretty nasty childhood rivalry — and that he once threw a knife at his brother’s pretty head! Eek!
Liam Hemsworth, 26, and his older brother, Chris, 32, may seem close now, but unfortunately it wasn’t always that way. During a visit to The Graham Norton Show, Liam revealed that he once nearly killed his brother by throwing a knife at his head. Crazy!
Okay, this is totally insane and definitely unexpected of the Hemsworth brothers! The two gorgeous Australian hunks were not always the good guys we see them as now, as Liam revealed in a recent interview while promoting his upcoming film, Independence Day: Resurgence. And in case you were wondering, knife throwing is not a way of showing affection in Australia.
“Our childhood rivalry was a bit vicious –- a bit like ‘The Hunger Games,'” Liam explained while chatting about his big brother. “We had a few incidents with weapons.” That’s pretty scary to hear, Liam.
“So one day when I was about five 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,” Liam further shared. Holy crap!
It sounds like Chris got really, really lucky, because had the knife hit him from the pointy end he likely would have been hurt pretty bad. However, Liam joked that he hit him with the handle on purpose!
“I could have hit him with the other end if I’d wanted to, it was just a warning shot,” Liam joked, hoping to ease the audience’s shock. Yikes, Liam! Note to self: never get in the way of Liam and a toaster.
Thankfully, Liam revealed that his sibling rivalry ended with Chris, mostly because of the age difference between himself and Luke, who is 35 years old. “I never had any problems with Luke because he was so much older and I didn’t mess with him,” Liam explained.
“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,” Liam shared.
Well, we are glad to hear that Liam and Chris are no longer throwing weapons at each other! At least, as far as we know…
