LOS ANGELES, Calif. -- “The Hunger Games” hits theaters on Friday, but the fan frenzy has already begun for the film’s stars, including Liam Hemsworth, who plays Gale in the highly anticipated film.
“We’ve been traveling around and doing premieres all over the world so, so it’s been a little crazy over the last couple of weeks,” the handsome actor told Access Hollywood at a screening of “The Hunger Games” in New York on Tuesday night.
Though the film hasn’t even opened in the U.S., the 22-year-old star, who’s currently dating Miley Cyrus, revealed he’s already been ambushed by female fans hoping to become Mrs. Liam Hemsworth.
“There’s been a lot — I’ve been asked to marry a few people, which has been interesting,” he told Access. “Yeah — people I don’t even know, so that’s been fun.”
While Liam’s co-star Josh Hutcherson had to pack on a few pounds for the film, Liam had to shed weight.
“My character’s lives in District 12 which is kind of the poorest district and he’s not eating a lot,” he said. “So, I lost quite a bit of weight for the role.”
