Chris Hemsworth will fight in some epic battles in the upcoming movie Thor, but in real life he's involved with quite a big feud with his brother Liam.
Sibling rivalry is never pretty, but when it arises over a summer blockbuster movie role with a hefty paycheck attached, it's going to cause a battle that Thor the thunder god would be in awe of.
Okay, so that might be exaggerating things a bit. However, Chris did say that the two spent a very frosty Christmas together (with the chill not being caused by the weather) and that they haven't spoken to one another since because they both tried out for the Thor role, with Chris winning it over his brother.
Liam Hemsworth also spoke out about their fight by saying that he's happy for his brother to get something, and as long as one of them is wielding Thor's hammer, things are good.
Of course Chris Hemsworth's comments tell a different tale, but two different stories aren't unusual in a brotherly battle of words. And speaking of words, it may have been Chris Hemsworth's choice of words that ultimately won him the role--he evidently did his research on the director of the movie, Kenneth Branagh, because he read a speech from the Shakespearean play Henry V. Branagh is a huge Shakespeare fan that has directed many movies based on the playwright's works, so Chris probably won a lot of brownie points with his choice. Liam Hemsworth, on the other hand, might have just let his work in The Last Song with Miley Cyrus speak for him (it's not exactly Romeo and Juliet).
But there really shouldn't be any bad blood between the brothers--after all, Liam Hemsworth did recently win the much-coveted role of Peeta in the movie The Hunger Games (if it turns out to be as popular as the books, he's going to have plenty of work in the sequels). So now that they have two equally big roles, can't these boys stop fighting and just be happy that they both get to play heroes?
