Liam Hemsworth’s trigger
Siblings. A fascinating relationship on its own. And when they’re famous? Even more fascinating. Previously in Celebrity Siblings, we’ve looked at the Mara sisters, Kate and Rooney, Donnie and Mark Wahlberg, and of course, OF COURSE, Beyonce and Solange.
Now the Hemsworths.
Liam Hemsworth, who Sarah affectionately refers to as the Lesser Hemsworth, was at Comic-Con yesterday for Mockingjay 2. This is what happened on the press line:
Some are interpreting his reaction as “testy”. The Daily Mail said he “loses his cool”. I wouldn’t go that far. But I would call it a trigger.
Here’s my question: if this had gone down with Chris Hemsworth, if he thought he’d been called Liam, would we be seeing the same thing?
My answer on that is No. Chris Hemsworth is… well…to borrow from Sarah, he’s the “more” instead of the “lesser”. Maybe it’s just being annoyed because their whole lives they’ve been mixed up. Maybe I don’t understand because I don’t have a sibling. And I’m sure I’ll hear from many of you who do have siblings and you’ll tell me how much you hate that you’re Jen and your sister’s Jane and it sucks when people can’t get it right. Sure. Now throw fame on top of that. Throw in the fact that Jen is Thor and the Sexiest Man Alive and you’re the Taylor Lautner character in The Hunger Games and Miley Cyrus’s ex-fiance and you were in a movie with Amber Heard which is why no one f-cking saw it. How does that look?
Does Liam want different things? Can’t Chris be the big Movie Star and Liam the “character” actor? He’s currently shooting Independence Day 2. That movie is totally about character development, didn’t you know?
