Chris Hemsworth takes a dig at Miley Cyrus while talking of brother Liam's health: 'We got him out of Malibu!'
'Did you see the Men’s Health cover? I thought, ‘Not bad kid. Not bad.’ He’s out there training and staying fit, and back in Australia doing his thing' said Chris
Chris Hemsworth couldn't be happier to have his little brother back with him in Australia. In a conversation with Australia's News.com.au, the Avengers superstar gave an update on Liam's health and workout routine now that he's back home.
“I think he’s done it,” Chris, 36, told the outlet of Liam, 30, passing him as the fittest brother.
“Did you see the Men’s Health cover? I thought, ‘Not bad kid. Not bad.’ He’s out there training and staying fit, and back in Australia doing his thing.”
“It’s Australian living, I guess. We got him out of Malibu!” he added, probably referencing his brother’s split from Miley Cyrus after eight months of marriage.
Cyrus and Liam were together for more than a decade and spent most of their time in Malibu, with the pop sensation even dedicating her hit song "Malibu" to their romance.
Following their split in August last year, Cyrus referenced her “house in the hills” and the “harbor lights” of Australia in her song "Slide Away." The 27-year-old singer-songwriter also wrote about Liam going “back to the ocean” while she goes “back to the city lights," according to People.
Ever since their split, Liam has often been spotted hitting the waves with Chris or with his new girlfriend Gabriella Brooks, 21. “Liam and Gabriella have spent a lot of time in Australia together,” a source previously told People, adding that they were “getting serious.”
Hemsworth introduced his new flame to parents Craig and Leonie during a lunch outing in December. “Gabriella has met Liam’s siblings and his parents,” the source confirmed to the outlet.
Having said that, Hemsworth and Brooks share a number of similar hobbies, including surfing, exercising, and relaxing at the beach. What's more? Liam's pals get along really well with his new lover. “Liam has been in a great mood,” the source added.
In a conversation with Men's Health Australia, the Hunger Games star opened up about his motivation behind exercising and his brand new toned physique. “This last six months, honestly, for keeping my head level and just staying balanced, I’d say exercise has been big for me,” Hemsworth told the magazine.
He was asked if his prime focus has been on "rebuilding," to which Hemsworth cracked up and said, “Yeah, that’s a good way to put it.”
Chris's wife Elsa Pataku revealed last November how her brother-in-law was coping after the split. “My brother in law, well, after a relationship where he dedicated 10 years, he’s discouraged … but he’s taking it well,” the actress said, per Hola! magazine. “He’s a strong guy and he deserves the best. I think he deserves much more,” she added.
Liam has been leaning on family, mostly his older brother, to get back on his feet, Pataky continued.
“Family is always there to protect you. He and his brother are so close and he’s really been there for him to give him the strength he needs,” she told reporters.
Hemsworth and Cyrus, who met on the set of The Last Song in 2009, reached a settlement agreement in late December and their divorce was finalized in January this year.
