Quotes

  • [About his brothers] They are quite tall (Big too), but they are actually very soft, I beat them, on every chance I get, they cry a lot, I take great joy in making them cry.
  • Watching Chris achieve all that success crystallized in my mind that it was what I wanted to do. And that I couldn't stay sanding floors for the rest of my life. [He is in flooring business]
  • [About balancing acting in a complex movie] You focus on work at hand, trying to be present at the moment and leaving the rest to others. That works for me.
  • I don't understand why someone would want to take a photo of us (brothers) getting out of a car or on the beach. I think that's really weird.
  • I've seen sharks in the ocean, it hasn't made me get out of the ocean [2]
  • [About Miley Cyrus] She loves our kids, and our kids absolutely love her. She won our hearts. She is mature above her age. She's very much like Liam, they actually are a perfect match in a lot of ways.
  • I was born in Melbourne but I feel like a gypsy.
  • Chris is a freak, he doesn’t have to work out at all. Us mortals have to work out a little bit harder than Chris does (to keep the body in shape)
  • I'm the 'short, dumb' Hemsworth brother
  • I could probably live in London if you had better surf. [2]
  • I don't think most people decide to become an actor because they want to be followed around all the time [2]
  • I was all ridiculously oversized calves and thighs and biceps and head. My head is massive. My head is, like, off the charts. [2]
  • ..from our grandparents we all developed a great sense of humor and from our parents a great work ethic [3]
  • Australia holds a very sort of dear spot in my heart, our family' heart, we sort of have a lot of connections to that part of the world
  • My kids give me the biggest sense of inspiration and joy. There's not a day where I don't laugh at them and with them
  • In a lot of ways Chris & Liam are definitely worlds ahead of me in the industry.. It's certainly not a bad thing, but.. make it a bit harder for me because of the preconceptions that come along with being a Hemsworth
  • If women were fighting for the right to have a say in parliament about issues that affect them directly….would you vote No? I don’t think there should even be a vote. The first people of Australia deserve a voice. [4]
