The actor shares how he’s transitioning into his 30s, after his 20s ended with his house burning down, surgery for a kidney stone, and the tabloids descending on his personal life. But with a new streaming series on Quibi – Most Dangerous Game – and training plan, the Aussie is feeling stronger than ever.
On the lessons from his 20s that he’s excited to bring into his 30s:
“Appreciating the little things. It’s something I always try to remind myself to do, especially in times that maybe things aren’t going the way I planned or the way I wanted things to go. Appreciating what I do have and searching for things that make me happy and things that make me a better person…”
On what he’s found during that search:
“Honestly, the past six months…I’d say exercise and fitness is a big thing for me to just feel balanced and levelheaded. I went into a job [Most Dangerous Game] at the end of last year that was extremely physical. I spent most of the project running and getting beaten up. It was just brutal. I leaned out a lot. Running is so jarring. Your knees, your ankles, your lower back. After that I teamed up with Jason Walsh, who owns Rise Nation in West Hollywood. We do high-intensity stuff, a mix of calisthenics, sled pulls, sled pushes, and lots and lots of free weights.”
On looking up to older brother Chris Hemsworth:
“I really look up to my brother Chris. I’ve worked with a lot of people that have been in really great positions in the past 11 years, and Chris has a stronger work ethic than most. He’s so focused. I’m thankful that I have him and am able to use his resources and his knowledge. I call him all the time

Lionsgate has finally released the complete character posters of the highly anticipated sequel from last year’s The Hunger Games. Academy Award-winner Jennifer Lawrence is still accompanied by Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Stanley Tucci and Elizabeth Banks who are repeating their previous roles as Katniss Everdeen, Peeta Mellark, Gale Hawthorne, Caesar Flickerman and Effie Trinket respectively (she’s wearing a huge red ruffled dress from Alexander McQueen Fall Winter 2012 on the poster!).
We are so thrilled that Jennifer Lawrence is wearing a custom-made white ruffled dress with metal bodice specially made by the talented Indonesian designer, Tex Saverio who has dressed the likes of Lady Gaga and Kim Kardashian!! The movie’s costume designer Trish Summerville explained in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter about the crystallized organza dress with abstract metal flames: “Katniss’ white gown is by a designer named Tex Saverio in Jakarta. He is amazing! I found his designs quite some time ago and saved his information for a perfectly fitting project, then came Catching Fire – perfect!” she said.
“We did several Skype calls with sketches to work together in designing the wedding dress. I had seen a dress he designed with a similar metal bodice, and I wanted to incorporate it into our wedding-dress design,” Summerville adds.
She also pointed out the bodice, a Swarovski-crystal-clad “organza corset under a metal cage.” The metal pieces rising up are meant to signify fire and flames, while layers of laser-cut feathers at the waist and shoulder tie in the film’s “Mockingjay” concept.
The skirt also has numerous layers of organza and chiffon ruffles giving it grandness but still making it seem airy and fluid for movement. As Summerville explains, “This is very important for the twirling/spinning Katniss does onstage, per Caesar Flickerman‘s request.”
