Hunger Games’ Liam Hemsworth goes plant-based
Australian actor Liam Hemsworth is best known for his role as Gale Hawthorne in The Hunger Games and as brother of Chris Hemsworth, star of the Thor films. He can currently be seen starring alongside Kate Winslet in the critically acclaimed film The Dressmaker, and will also play the lead in the upcoming 2016 blockbuster, Independence Day: Resurgence.
Liam is well known for his perfectly-sculpted physique and recently gave up meat and adopted a fully plant-based diet to improve his health and to reconcile with his love of animals.
Much of his inspiration to make the change came from Hunger Games co-star Woody Harrelson, who has followed a plant-based diet for 30 years.
Liam says that when he was consuming meat he felt sluggish, and would constantly feel like napping, but after eating animal-free for over six months, he’s much more energetic and has “never felt better”.
Liam grew up in a working-class family on Phillip Island, a small coastal community with a population of about 7,000 people. He hangs with a tight circle of childhood friends, doesn’t like crowds or public places, and hates nightclubbing. In his spare time he can be found surfing, gaming, doting on Tani his new rescue dog, or painting, which he likens to a form of meditation.
