Liam Hemsworth's Pokemon Go obsession

Liam Hemsworth is obsessed with Pokémon Go.

The 'Independence Day: Resurgence' star can't get enough of the popular gaming app, according to his partner Miley Cyrus.

Asked if she wants to join Snapchat, Miley told the new issue of ELLE magazine: "No. I want to be. I don't know how to use it. I feel like I'll be an old lady that's too held back, because I don't keep up with it.

"I'm not on Pokémon Go. This morning Liam woke up and tried to go to the car wash because it was a - what do you call it? - PokéSpot. Like, 'Got to go find them and catch them all! Ahh!'"

And the 26-year-old actor admits to having another obsession - cheese, which he has given up to follow a vegan diet.

He said: "I never get cravings for meat. The less I eat meat, the harder it is to imagine eating it. I get cravings for cheese though. Every time I'd go to New York, one of my favourite things to do was to go and eat pizza. I've had cheese pizza, like, once in the past four months.

"It was in New York and it was in the first few weeks of being vegan. I was with some friends and we'd had a couple of beers - you walk around and there's pizza everywhere and it's like, 'Ah God, I've gotta have a slice.'"

His strict diet - where meat and dairy products are banned - meant he generally had to cook for himself whilst on set.

He added: "I do like to cook. I was actually forced to cook a lot more food for myself in New Mexico because you can't really find vegan restaurants there. I did a lot of cooking in high school - I really enjoy it.

"I cook a lot of beans and rice and sweet potatoes and lentils ... just the sort of stuff where you can cook a lot of it and throw it in the fridge."
