Addictions don't always have to do with drugs or alcohol, as The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth can attest. He has opened up to the September issue of Men's Health about food, his fiancée Miley Cyrus, style, and getting an unexpected kick in the chest from Jean-Claude Van Damme during the filming of The Expendables 2 (out Aug. 17).
On Cyrus: "An extremely strong, intelligent, supportive person."
On his red-carpet style: "I like suits that are fitted. And I usually stick to grays, whites, and blacks."
On Cyrus' opinion of him in a suit: "All women think men look good in suits. To be honest, I like the way they look too."
On the star-studded cast of The Expendables 2: "There wasn't the testosterone or ego you might expect on a set like that. Everyone was so cool and professional."
On the moment when Jean-Claude Van Damme unexpectedly kicked him in the chest during the filming of The Expendables 2: "It was a present from him, in a weird way. I was honored to be kicked by him."
On his grueling workouts with a Navy SEAL and following the Paleo Diet to prepare for his role in The Hunger Games: "My character was spending most of his life in a state of hunger, and I wanted to get a sense of that, physically and mentally."
On training for The Hunger Games: "I literally had to wait a half hour after each session before I drove anywhere, I had to lay on the ground until I could breathe properly again."
On changing his diet to prepare for The Hunger Games: "It was tough because I'm an eater. If I have one addiction in life, it's probably food."
On the occasional Krispy Kreme binge: "You gotta get, like, 24 and eat all of them. I lose my mind. Go crazy. Krispy Kreme fever!"
On his older brothers Luke and Chris: "I used to wear my brothers' hand-me-downs, which were all too big on me."
On his hair as a teenager: "I used to have an afro - like Will Ferrell in Semi-Pro. It was bleached blond from the sun. I was tall and awkward. I was not cool."
On his friends: "Ninety percent of my best friends back home are plumbers, electricians, builders, or landscapers. Most of our dads worked in trades."
On confronting death while surfing: "The fear of dying? That's part of the fun of it. The adrenaline you get from surfing big waves. I've seen a shark before. You get the worst wipeouts when you're not expecting it."
On boxing, his current sport of choice: "I love going to the gym, sweating, running around, feeling like I'm having a heart attack. I like the physical side of boxing - it's fun to punch a bag for 20 minutes - but I also feel mentally strong when I box, I feel good in my own body."
