Liam Hemsworth recalls burger binge

Liam Hemsworth

Liam Hemsworth’s first “real bonding experience” with co-star Josh Hutcherson was throwing up together in his garden.

The two actors star in The Hunger Games franchise along with Jennifer Lawrence.

Liam admitted in an interview with Jimmy Kimmel that the Harold & Kumar films were a source of great entertainment for him growing up in Australia.

His favorite instalment is Harold & Kumar Go to White Castle, and the star was thrilled when Josh took him to the fast food chain after many years of dreaming about their burgers.

“At the time when it came out I was about 16, 17, and my friends watched it religiously, it was like the bible. It wasn’t until I came to America I found out White Castle was a real place. I spent the first year talking about it to people, saying, ‘Let’s find a White Castle’,” he laughed.

“When I shot the first Hunger Games, Josh Hutcherson took me to his place in Kentucky and he said there was a White Castle right by his house. So we went there and bought three or four of these briefcases of White Castle burgers. We took them back to his house and we ate them. About half an hour later – this was our first real bonding experience and became really good friends – we went out to his garden and threw up together.”

Liam also recalled his first big casting break, when Sylvester Stallone offered him a role in the first Expendables movie in 2009.

When the role had been written out of the movie two weeks later, the star was embarrassed about how he was going to break it to his friends after making such a big deal about it.

“I’d kind of said this [gestures with his middle finger] to all my friends and now it wasn’t going to happen,” he giggled.

“In my head… I didn’t even care that I hadn’t got the part. I was like, ‘What am I going to tell my friends now?’ What am I going to say?’”

Liam was later cast in The Expendables 2.
