Shirtless Liam Hemsworth In ‘Love And Honor’ Trailer

Miley Cyrus is no fool and shirtless Liam Hemsworth in this trailer for Love And Honor, proves it.   Never mind that it looks like a terrible, terrible Vietnam War-era rom com about a soldier who falls for a winsome protester with a great bum.

Why should believe a conviction-filled ‘Nam protester would fall for a baby-killer out on leave, I don’t know. And anyway, these well-scrubbed Hollywood types look far too clean to be hippies.

But, you know, Liam Hemsworth shirtless … so … whatever.

 

Luke Hemsworth is the Lesser-Known, Hottest Hemsworth

They’re the Australian version of the Barrymores (I guess?): Chris and Liam Hemsworth, those hotties from down under who have starred in two of the biggest movies this year—Chris in The Avengers and Liam in The Hunger Games. But did you know they have an older brother? And he is also hot? Ladies and gentlemen, meet Luke Hemsworth.

Luke Hemsworth is also an actor, appearing on Aussie soap Neighbours and most recently in the miniseries Bikie Wars: Brothers in Arms, although he has taken a bit of a hiatus from to focus on his family. Entertainment Weekly has a pretty fluffy interview with the eldest Hemsworth in which they mostly ask about his more famous brothers. Like, in a way that is actually kind of embarrassing? Take a look:

Did you keep in touch with Chris when he first moved out to Los Angeles?
We were definitely in contact for a lot of that time. Chris had some funny stories living in the back of [his manager’s] house, the guest house there, and becoming a bit of an unofficial nanny with his kids. He sort of had a bit of a trial-by-fire there as well. He called me up a few times and said, “What do I do?” And once again, I’d just lead him in the wrong direction.

Wasn’t your character on Neighbours an ex-surfer who became a paraplegic?
No, that was Liam! (laughs) Liam was in a wheelchair.

Well this is embarrassing. I mixed up my Hemsworths! Tell me about your character.
I was a footballer, and I was actually a drug dealer on the show, like a dealer of growth hormones. It’s funny, because I played football as a kid—Australian rules football—for ten years, and one of my nicknames was Roids.

Be honest. Did you ever do them?
No! (laughs) I never had to. I was all ridiculously oversized calves and thighs and biceps and head. My head is massive. My head is like off the charts.

"LOL whoops I am terrible at interviewing actors!" is basically what I got out of this Q&A. Because, come on—let’s just not even comment on the fact that the person interviewing Liam Hemsworth screwed up and got him confused with his brother, but he also asked him a ridiculous question like, "Do you still speak to your brother after he left your country and came to ours? I don’t know how email or phones work. Y’all got those in the Outback? Like, with your bloomin’ onions?" But this is probably the most offensive exchange:

Have you met Liam’s fiancé, Miley Cyrus?
Yeah, she’s great. She loves our kids, and our kids absolutely love her. She won our hearts. I find her really interesting. I find her very articulate, and years in maturity above her age. But at the same time, she’s very much like Liam. I think a lot of people don’t realize that they are really, really in love. They actually are a perfect match in a lot of ways.

Poor Luke Hemsworth. He’s the least famous actor in his family, his younger brothers get more attention than him, and all he wants to do is do an interview in which he talks about his own career and some dumb-dumb at what is basically turned into a tabloid is asking him about his brother’s upcoming marriage to Miley Cyrus. How dreadful! Why the hell didn’t this interviewer ask things like, "How did you get so hot?" and "How come your brothers are more famous than you and you’re the hot one?" and "Is it nice to be the Hemsworth who looks like a real grown-up man?" and "What is the Australian version of ‘corn fed,’ because that is what you are and it’s really working on me." Basically, I’m saying that Liam Hemsworth’s publicist should reach out to me because I have some things I need to ask him.

Today In Ridiculous Memorabilia You Can Buy: Miley’s Ring, the GoT Throne

Here are some things that happened in television news this week: Mad Men was completely insane and emotional and Sunday’s episode may have led to what is probably the worst tweet of all time (SPOILERS!, sort of), Game of Thrones ended with record views and Miley Cyrus, aka Hannah Montana, got engaged to her beau, actor Liam Hemsworth of Home and Away fame (yes, obviously he’s been in things since Home and Away, but let’s give credit where credit is due). 

So it was only a matter of time before various enterprises attempted to cash in on all of this. The worst tweet of all time was probably not the best sales pitch for the E-Class, but the other two heavily-buzzed in the television world have also spawned really ostentatious and unecessary products people who have inconceivable amounts of disposable income (so, basically no one) can actually purchase. The first of these is a replica—not even the legitsies version—of Cyrus’ engagement ring: although the Neil Lane/Liam Hemsworth joint of the original rock went for some number with a one and a whole lot of zeroes, this one is just over $3,000 and is a replica known as the "Elizabeth" ring. Probably because nothing says "I am totally mentally and emotionally prepared for the commitment and expectations of marriage" than a ring named for Miley Cyrus and/or Liam Hemsworth.

But wait—there’s more! For the price of a wedding, a year and beyond of rent in a decent housing unit in most major cities and/or potentially all of someone’s college tuition, you can pretend to rule Westeros for, like, five minutes. The HBO shop is selling replica versions of the Iron Throne from Game of Thrones at $30,000 each, for when that lightsaber from The Sharper Image just won’t do. Although, unlike in the books, actual swords were not forged to make HBO’s version of the seat of power, it probably should still not sit in a house with small children. Or, really, anyone. Basically, welcome to your future Skymall centerfold. 

To expand upon the words of the men of Sterling Cooper Draper Pryce: At last, something truly egregious and pointy (and yet, sort of cool) you can truly own. 

Speaking of Game of Thrones, elsewhere on the Internet, someone has created this gem, a sigil of the fictional House of Swanson, as in Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation, whose house motto is “ALL the bacon and eggs.” Well played. 

Your Daily Guide to Trending Topics

Every day there are some topics that are trending. Since many of them don’t make sense, we provide easy contextualization. Also, this way, you won’t actually have to know anything about anything.

Miley Cyrus Engaged

Google users probably aren’t looking for the registry for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemswoth, but they’re still searching for news about the couple’s engagement above all else. That’s right, former child star Miley Cyrus who, despite brushes with legal intoxicants and Annie Leibovitz, seems to have grown up pretty well adjusted considering her game, is getting married. The 19-year-old pop star met Hunger Games actor Hemsworth, 22, on a movie set and the two have been dating for three years. "Thank you for all the love today. I’m happy to share this news with you all. I feel like all my dreams are coming true,” Cyrus tweeted, forgetting to CC the genie who granted her original wishes for fame and fortune. 

Wade Davis

Retired NFL played Wade Davis has come out as a gay man, making him the second most popular term to search on Google this morning. His trending status on Grindr is not known. Davis, who used to play football for the Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans, and Washington Redskins.“You just want to be one of the guys, and you don’t want to lose that sense of family,” Davis said to OutSports.com. “Your biggest fear is that you’ll lose that camaraderie and family.” 

Jewel

No, your eyes don’t deceive you. Jewel, the singer-songwriter is indeed trending today—at least over at Bing. It’s because the “You Were Meant For Me” singer tweeted a photo of herself in costume as country music legend June Carter Cash for the upcoming Lifetime movie Anchored in Love: An Intimate Portrait of June Carter Cash. "Here I am as June in my trailer with her blue eyes and perfect teeth," she wrote only moments before Reese Witherspoon, who played Cash in the 2006 feature film Walk The Line, presumably showed up and slapped her. 

Kris Humphries

Yahoo! is feeling a bit retro this morning, as users are spending their valuable time searching for information about Kris Humphries, last summer’s most famous groom and more recently just that guy who was married to Kim Kardashian for a few days. They’re all curious about Fatmire Sinanaj, the 25-year-old hotel employee that Humphries is rumored to be dating. Though he denied it, nefarious sources close to the dashing basketball player say that he and Sinanaj, who indeed rocks a look not dissimilar to that of his ex, are hot and heavy. Really weight stuff here, Yahoo! users. Wow.

#WhatUniversityHasToughtMe

Maybe it’s that we do this post in the morning, and news hasn’t been reported or serious thinking hasn’t been done yet. Either way, the things that trend on Twitter are normally pretty dopey. Today’s entry in that category: things that people learned while attending college. Don’t get too worried, but we bet most of them aren’t about book smarts.

Your Daily Guide To Trending Topics

Every day there are some topics that are trending. Since many of them don’t make sense, we provide easy contextualization. Also, this way, you won’t actually have to know anything about anything.

Wisconsin Recall

The top two trending terms on Google today have to do with Scott Walker, the first-term Republican governor from Wisconsin. Walker is now the first ever governor in the history of the United States to have won a recall election. See, after Walker was initially elected, he introduced a plan to save money for the state by cutting public employee pensions and eliminating bargaining rights. This was enough for the state’s labor movement to force a recall election. The joke’s on them, sadly, because Walker killed it, defeating his opponent with a 10% margin. Walker’s earned a fan in no less than Mitt Romney, who said, “Governor Walker has shown that citizens and taxpayers can fight back – and prevail – against the runaway government costs imposed by labor bosses. Tonight voters said ‘no’ to the tired, liberal ideas of yesterday, and ‘yes’ to fiscal responsibility and a new direction.” 

Amber Portwood

Before we get too comfortable with all of this political news being searched for on Google—honestly it’s enough to make a guy’s head spin!—here’s Amber Portwood. The star of the MTV train wreck Teen Mom has been sentenced to at least two years (but perhaps up to five) in prison on drug charges. Originally the reality TV monster avoided the clink by going to rehab, but she brilliantly dropped out of that program. Portwood has had a long relationship with the law, including a 2010 arrest on felony domestic violence charges and a more recently May arrest thanks to a probation violation, care of a failed drug test.

Amanda Bynes

Yahoo! users have no obvious political interests this morning, as the misdemeanor DUI charges against once adorable teen actress (now former actress) Amanda Bynes top the search trends. Bynes was arrested in West Hollywood back in April after she slammed her BMW into a cop car and arrested on the suspicion of driving under the influence. Bynes is standing up for herself in a rather unusual way: tweeting at the President. Tuesday night she wrote, “Hey @BarackObama… I don’t drink. Please fire the cop who arrested me. I also don’t hit and run. The end.” 

Miss New Zealand

Avianca Bohn might soon be stripped of her beauty-queen title of Miss New Zealand now that it’s been discovered she’s not an actual citizen. The situation is, of course, of great concern to Yahoo! readers. As it turns out, the 22-year-old beauty moved to the country from South Africa at age 16. Her citizenship, she has said, is pending. “"Everyone’s got contacts, and it’s one of the first things that we’re going to do and sort out," she said in an interview. "It’s just the paperwork. I mean New Zealand is such a multicultural country. It’s not an issue to me at all, I’m not even worried about that." The director of pageant (owned by Donald Trump, an expert in citizenship) has said that Bohn should not have won and was, in fact, only in the competition to build her confidence. “"It’s not embarrassing for the competition. It’s embarrassing for the [chief] judge, who should have taken on board what I said to him," the director said. "It says that in their entry form. [Ms Bohm] and I both had a clear understanding that she couldn’t win.” Except she did.

Vampire Skeletons

Bing is all excited about the discovery in Bulgaria of two skeletons whose chests were pierced with iron rods, making it seem likely that they were staked for being vampires. "These skeletons stabbed with rods illustrate a practice which was common in some Bulgarian villages up until the first decade of the 20th Century,” the head of Bulgaria’s National History Museum has said. To date over 100 skeletons bearing the marks of vampire slayers have been found in the spooky country. But really, news story of True Blood marketing? 

#Worstof2012

The year’s about half over and already Twitter is cataloging what’s been wrong with it. There’s also a huge number of posts congratulating Miley Cyrus and her big-headed beau Liam Hemsworth on their supposed engagement, but that is a much less popular hashtag than the one that allows you to complain.

New ‘Snow White & The Huntsman’ Trailer Ups the Ante, Number of Dwarves

Snow White and the Huntsman, otherwise known as Thor & Bella Fight Mavis Gary, looks like a pretty intentionally Epic sword-and-sorcery action flick, filled with slow-motion horses, high fantasy art direction and a story older than America. This new trailer courtesy of Xfinity widens the scope by quite a bit: There are some more palatable magical elements (CGI turtles!), more action shots of Kristen Stewart all Joan of Arc-ed out, and the appearance of the famous seven dwarves, looking a bit more Tolkien than Disney. Oh, and there’s the introduction of a typical fantasy trope about how Snow White is the one to rescue the kingdom from the darkness, but of course it would have to go down like that. Take a look after the jump.

Calling it now: Whoever hosts next year’s Oscars will make some truly horrible jokes about the similarities between this and the other Snow White movie due for release in 2012, Mirror Mirror. "Two Snow Whites? S’no problem why audiences got confused!" Ugh, it’s going to be the worst. Snow White and the Huntsman is out on June 1.

‘The Hunger Games’ Are Coming to a Mall Near You

Not literally, unfortunately. Instead, the movie’s stars will hit the press circuit for a mall tour around America’s finest shopping centers, visiting locations in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Phoenix, Chicago, Miami, Dallas, Minneapolis and Seattle over the first week in March. It’ll mostly be the bit players who get the chance to be screamed at by thousands of 6th graders and their moms, but main stars Jennifer Lawrence and Liam Hemsworth will also be available for some dates. As for the adults like Elizabeth Banks and Woody Harrelson, well, ha ha, like hell if they were going to drag themselves through middle America for anything less than an Oscar nomination. If you’re interested, you can RSVP at the movie’s Facebook page. Total number of guests so far? 6,361  and counting over those seven malls. It’s going to be a madhouse! 

I mean, maybe you, the educated blog reader, isn’t interested in such a thing, but if you have a little sibling or cousin, you would actually be the coolest person ever by picking them up to go. It’s even okay if you like the Hunger Games yourself, because they are honestly pretty great and no one would fault you if you read through the three books in a weekend and subsequently spent hours fantasizing over how you’d fare in the Games yourself and how you and Katniss and Peeta and Gale would just be the best of friends forever and ever, yes you would, the adventures you’d have, the places you’d see, the people you’d kill. Memories to last a lifetime.

Anyways, advance tickets for the film’s March 23 release go on sale today through MovieTickets.com and Fandango.com. If nothing else, you can make a killing buying a bulk of them and jacking up the price for Adderalled tweenagers who don’t have anything better to spend their money on. Their brains will actually melt if they can’t get into that first showing, grey matter and all. It won’t be pretty, so try to cap the mark up at $50 out of fairness.
