The 49-year-old star has appeared in a number of hit movies such as 'Requiem for a Dream' and 'Dallas Buyers Club' but revealed that he has never seen them.
Jared explained: "In 'Dallas Buyers Club', I never saw myself once in it.
"I still haven't that performance and it didn't get into the way of how it affects the audience. And I think that's the most important thing. Like I want to be free and not be kind of hung up on how I look or what's effective or what's not.

Happy birthday, Liam!
On January 13, 2021 Liam Hemsworth turned 31. Not only is the Australian actor extremely dreamy, but he’s also got some serious acting talent. With such an impressive public profile, it’s hard to believe that there are still some things we don’t know about him, especially those from his humble beginnings in Australia. So, to celebrate his big day, it’s time to learn 10 things about your favourite Hemsworth brother...
Growing up on the coast of Australia means a lot of time spent at the beach, and in Hemsworth's case, out on the water. ‘The Hunger Games’ actor surfed competitively until the age of 18. He has even admitted that surfing is his favourite thing to do and if he could travel around the world and surf for a living, he would. In a 2015 interview with Men’s Health, he shared that although he surfs in LA, he prefers the uncrowded beaches back home: “The surf in L.A. can be really good, though most of the time here in California the swell is pretty small and it’s super crowded because so many people surf. It constantly blows my mind when I turn up at the beach and, you know, there’s a two-foot surf and about a million people out there. That just wouldn’t happen where I grew up. We always had consistent swells, but about one-seventieth the crowd.”
When Hemsworth was filming ‘Independence Day: Resurgence’ in 2015, he decided to go vegan. The actor was inspired by many of his friends who are also vegan, and it wasn’t difficult for him to cut meat out as his mother is vegetarian and they mainly ate vegetables growing up. Hemsworth has talked about the reasons he decided to make this change, and it was mainly for his own health and for everything he was learning about the mistreatment of animals. He said: “With the facts I was gathering, and then just how I was physically feeling, I felt like I had to do something different, so I adopted this vegan-diet lifestyle … I feel nothing but positive, mentally and physically. I love it. I feel like it also has a kind of a domino effect on the rest of my life.”
He’s had his fair share of odd jobs
Growing up on a tiny island in Australia called Phillip Island didn’t leave Hemsworth many options when it came to looking for a job. So, when he wasn’t lying on the beach, he did every odd job that he possibly could. The actor gave us a glimpse of a few of these jobs during an interview with Vanity Fair. He said: “I worked at a bakery... I worked in a bowling alley for a little while. I worked in a nature park as a park ranger and would tell people where to sit in this place called The Penguin Parade, where we'd have penguins come in at night,” he said.
He’s got a big heart
He and his brother, Chris, are both ambassadors for the Australian Childhood Foundation (ACF). The foundation helps protect and save children from abuse. Growing up, his father worked for child protection and human services, and although he is now retired, he still helps with the ACF with his sons. Liam told the Collective Hub in 2016: “Having come from such a great home life and having such great parents, we all feel strongly about helping kids have that same home life and have the support from a family to dream big."
His brother inspired him to act
He didn’t ever consider acting until he went to watch his brother, Chris, while he was working on ‘Home and Away’. The actor always loved films and loved how he felt watching them, but something clicked when he watched Chris. After that, he “did some classes, got an agent and auditioned for everything going,” managing to secure some TV roles.
He was almost Thor
We’re all familiar with the his hunky brother Chris as Thor, but what we don’t know is that the other Hemsworth brother was originally shortlisted for the role. The ‘Isn’t it Romantic’ actor was amongst the final four who auditioned, however, the casting directors ultimately decided that he was too young for the role and went with Chris, who wasn’t initially considered.
He’s fascinated with squirrels
He never saw squirrels scurrying around in Australia, so since moving to America, he gets easily excited when he spots one. The actor’s first squirrel sighting was when he was at Disney for a meeting, and he couldn’t believe that the little creature was real.
Sued for posting a photo
In 2019, he was sued for a picture he posted on Instagram. Apparently, the actor did not give credit to the person who took the picture of him and his ‘Isn’t it Romantic’ castmates. He ended up having to pay $150,000 after losing the copyright infringement lawsuit.
"And I always want to change as an actor, so I don't want to learn what might work, what are the habits that work and what don't.
Facts you never knew about Daniel Craig's James Bond

His final role as 007 marks the end of a chapter in this popular and versatile British actor's career.

"Also, who wants to look at themselves that much. I read the script, I know exactly what happened."
Jared admits that he finds it "less stressful" looking back over his work in music videos as he doesn't "criticise" himself during the shoot.
The Thirty Seconds to Mars frontman told SiriusXM: "I have seen my work quite a bit when I am in like a music video.
"And it's funny because I just, it doesn't, I guess, because I'm playing myself in the videos as well, maybe it's different, but I've always found it to be less stressful. And just a more enjoyable experience if I don't look at the monitor, if I'm not kind of criticising myself along the way, even if it's in a constructive way or directing myself.
"I feel like I've done my best work when I'm just not thinking about the character from that point of view, from the outside in. I've done it on a couple of movies where I've looked at the monitor, I thought, well, maybe I can learn a lot here."
