Liam Hemsworth's sibling rivalry

Liam Hemsworth and his brothers are incredibly "competitive".

The 'Hunger Games' star has revealed he "idolised" his older brothers, Chris and Luke, when they were growing up but says the siblings loved to get the upper hand over the others.

He said: "I was the youngest, so I was never really anywhere near their physicality. If they wanted to beat me up, they would. But I idolised them. As a kid, I followed them into anything and wanted to do whatever they were doing. And it was always competitive.

"I went and watched [Chris] on set one day and I clearly remember something snapping in my mind. It was like, 'Yeah, I want to do this.' It was definitely the goal. Before I even started working on 'Neighbours' in Australia, I was already thinking about Los Angeles."

The 25-year-old actor also opened up about the time he and Chris both went for the lead role in 'Thor' but insists there's no hard feelings between the pair because he believes everything happens for a reason.

He added to Men's Health magazine: "Marvel flew me out to screen test for it and it was down to me and four other guys. I spoke to my brother on the phone, and he was like, 'What?! I didn't even get called back!' And I was like, 'I'm probably just more of a man, you know.'

"I feel like that about every job I haven't got. I feel like if I don't get something, I'm not meant to, and there'll be another project that will be more right for me at that time."
