Liam Hemsworth says he’s taking fame “day by day.”
The 23-year-old actor – who is engaged to Miley Cyus – told US Weekly, ‘I’m truly fortunate to be part of this whole process after The Hunger Games. But I’m taking it day by day.”
He also said he doesn’t see why he’s a heartthrob.
”I grew up surfing in Australia. I keep fit, I’m active and I eat very well. I don’t consider myself a heartthrob in any way, though. I’m just pinching myself.”
Living in Los Angeles – he’s always happy when he visits family in Australia.
He said, ”Having spent so much time away from my family, I miss being able to share good times with them. I can’t think of anything better than my whole family being together in one place.”
Liam was recently at the Cannes Film Festival with Jennifer Lawrence when they literally almost caught fire.
A source said they were “sitting on a sofa in the VIP section of the party when all of a sudden, an 8-foot column with a platter of candles on top fell on top of them.”
“They both jumped up when it happened, and thankfully no one was hurt,” the source added. “Liam and Jennifer both seemed pretty calm about it and laughed it off. They almost caught fire – – literally.”
Meanwhile Miley is working on her new album and doing interviews. Her one with Elle UK has her revealing, “We have a house together and dogs. It just seems right to be wearing this ring and to be committed. But we keep our relationship low-key and don’t talk about it any more.”
