Liam Hemsworth’s ‘Independence Day’ Nightmares: How He Almost Broke His Face With A Bowling Ball

Liam Hemsworth is generally regarded as a nice guy with a pleasant nature and a celebrity who is fun to work with. And that is why he will always be the perfect guest for shows like Jimmy Fallon’s The Tonight Show.

Recently, Liam Hemsworth appeared on The Tonight Show to promote Independence Day: Resurgence, Liam’s upcoming movie which is already being considered as one of his best movies to date. Hollywood Life reported that Liam spoke about having nightmares during the shooting of the movie as the storyline was so impactful.

“I try not to take my work home with me but I had terrible nightmares about me and Jeff Goldblum getting chased by aliens.”

Liam Hemsworth appeared on The Tonight Show looking as stylish as ever in a sleek black suit with a nicely trimmed beard. At least, that’s the outfit he wore during his interview with Jimmy Fallon, after which he changed into a slightly-less-stylish orange jumpsuit and helmet for “Slip and Flip,” an exciting drinking game full of fun. Liam participated in the friendly game whole-heartedly by giving his all to compete against Jimmy Fallon.

Initially, Jimmy Fallon had the upper hand; however, Liam made a speedy comeback towards the end of the game and eventually beat the host. The Hunger Games actor seemed to have a great time playing the game despite the fact that he ended up soaking wet. Of course, having a good-natured and fun-loving host like Jimmy Fallon would have made the game even more interesting for Hemsworth.

However, that may not be the case with every game. 9 News reported an incident where Liam Hemsworth was seen battling with an Australian ex-footballer, Beau Ryan, in a bowling alley on The Footy Show.

It turned out that Ryan made a nasty slip and lost control of the bowling ball which flew backward, straight into Liam Hemsworth’s movie star face. Liam was lucky to have escaped any injuries or damage to his face as the ball was thankfully soft.

Some of Liam Hemsworth’s recent appearances on television and radio shows have revealed some interesting trivia about his life. For example, the Empire State actor surprised the Tonight Show audience by sharing with Jimmy Fallon that he was nicknamed the “Triple Six” by one of his uncles for reasons unknown. In fact, there was one point in time when his uncles even tried to exorcise him!

Cosmopolitan reported that Jimmy Fallon, in turn, surprised Liam with the actor’s throwback yearbook photo that showed him donning a Justin Timberlake-inspired hairstyle that made his hair appear like dried instant noodles.

On the Australian radio station Nova FM, Liam Hemsworth revealed that his first job was that of a baker before he started working in a bowling alley, shining the pins. Another interesting fact shared by Liam during his radio interview was that he used to volunteer to answer questions in sex-education classes at school that was awkwardly conducted by his mother.

But even though Liam Hemsworth loves talking about his life, the 26-year-old star prefers to avoid discussing his personal life in public. According to Business Standard, Liam Hemsworth refuses to go beyond a particular limit to garner media attention, as he has seen people making up horrible things to stay in relevant and in the spotlight.

The Paranoia actor feels that this kind of contrived publicity alienates everybody in the end, and he urges people to focus on the positive aspects of life instead of inventing reasons to stay in the spotlight. Apart from enjoying a positive outlook towards life, the Australian actor also enjoys coming back home and spending time with his friends, who he says keep him grounded.

Of particular importance to Liam Hemsworth are that his friends are not at all influenced by his celebrity status, as they still see him as their old buddy from childhood days. In fact, surfing in the seas around Philip Island along with his friends is one Liam’s favorite outings and the perfect way for him to unwind between his various entertainment projects.
