Liam Hemsworth happy for Hunger tears

March 8th, 2012

Liam Hemsworth is excited by the ''passion'' people have with 'The Hunger Games'.

The Australian actor - who plays the role of Gale Hawthorne in the eagerly-anticipated sci-fi action film - admits he has only recently seen the picture but was delighted by how people reacted.

He told MTV News: ''I saw the film for the first time last week. I was pretty nervous to see it for the first time, and it's turned out unbelievable.

''It's honestly one of the most powerful films I've seen and I'm really looking forward to everyone seeing it. It's pretty exciting. We had young girls with tears in their eyes. It's exciting to see the passion. It's cool.''

Liam stars alongside Jennifer Lawrence in the novel adaptation, and she has previously revealed she expects her life to change considerably when the film is released.

He said: ''If this is as big as it's anticipated to be there will have to be some changes to my life - security systems and all that stuff.

''Now I'm living on the beach without a care in the world. It's a hard thing to think about, your life being completely different. But I didn't want to miss out on something because I was scared.''
