Liam Hemsworth is spending some time in the Philippines to help promote Bench/, a clothing line which he models for. During a Q&A session held yesterday, Liam even shared a few details about Catching Fire!
He says that it isn’t an act: Jennifer Lawrence, his ”Hunger Games” and ”Catching Fire” co-star, truly is “amazing.”
“She’s one of the most energetic, fun-loving people I’ve ever met. Working with her on set is just easy because she’s so good and she’s just won all these huge awards so congratulations to her for that. She’s amazing.”
Liam gets “whipped” in “Catching Fire” — literally.
“My character [Gale] gets whipped in this one. So I spent a couple of days on my knees getting whipped, which was pretty horrific.”
“Catching Fire” is turning out to be even better than “The Hunger Games.”
“There’s a whole lot of great stuff in ’Catching Fire.’ The characters are developing more; (director) Francis Lawrence had a whole new take on it.”

According to Deadline.com, Paranoia will hit theaters September 27, 2013. What do you think? Will you head out to see Liam in his latest?
Stunt work isn’t as easy as some make it look. Just ask Liam Hemsworth who recently found himself hurting on the set of The Hunger Games : Catching Fire.
During a stunt last week on the Atlanta set, Hemsworth reports that he took a spill, but gutted through it.
“I twisted my knee,” Hemsworth says. “I try to just fight through it. There’s so many people standing around waiting for you to do your thing. You feel sort of obligated not to let everyone down.”
Like the books step things up a notch on the action front, Liam assures fans that the film also takes that jump forward.
“There’s a bunch of action in this one,” he vows. “All of the characters have much more action than they did in the first one.”
After his time off from The Hunger Games, Liam also said he worked hard to get back into shape for the sequel.
Hemsworth says his studly Gale is about the same as the original film. He did take some time before shooting started to “lose some weight” to get the proper look.
“It’s The Hunger Games,” he says. “My character needs to look hungry. A little bit.”

Liam Hemswoth answered five fun questions and did a mini rapid fire Q&A for Woman’s Health magazine.
1 Who do you call for advice?
Most of the time if I’m in a pickle I’ll call one of my brothers. They’ve usually got somewhat uplifting advice. One is six and a half years older and one is eight years older, so they’ve probably lived through whatever my problem is.
2 Do you have any girlie tendencies?
I love sitting on the couch and watching movies. I don’t know if that’s girlie or not. I like getting my feet massaged; I’ll get whoever’s closest to do it.
3 Any hidden talents?
I’m a really fast runner. No one can catch me–I’m quick. I’m also a really good cook; I’ll do anything Italian, like spaghetti or pizzas. I studied cooking all through high school.
4 What’s the best way to make up after a fight?
Put yourself in their shoes, whatever the situation.
5 Do you believe in love at first sight?
