Liam Hemsworth Jokes That Miley Cyrus Could Beat Him in the Hunger Games

If the actor and his girlfriend fought in a real-life version of the Games, Liam says Miley would win: "She's a tough girl"

For the few of you out there who still haven't read the books, The Hunger Games series tells the story of children who are forced to fight to the death in an annual competition called -- you guessed it! -- the Hunger Games. And though star Liam Hemsworth may look strong, he's not so sure he'd prevail in a real-life version of the games.

In fact, the Aussie hunk told People at the film's premiere Monday night that his girlfriend Miley Cyrus (who was on hand to support her man) would be a stronger competitor than him.

"Probably her," Hemsworth, 22, said when asked who would last longer.  "She's a tough girl, that one." 

The singer-actress is, after all, responsible for pranking her boyfriend for the MTV show Punk'd, and she has no problem standing her ground against paparazzi or Twitter haters. So it's no wonder Hemsworth is confident about his girlfriend's chances in the Arena.

As for facing a large, albeit friendly, crowd of people wanting a piece of him, Hemsworth does have some experience. The actor was in awe of the masses of screaming fans who assembled at the worldwide premiere in Los Angeles.

"It's like a good punch to the head," the Aussie hunk explained, adding that his brother Chris Hemsworth, 28, dealt with similarly excited fans at the premiere of last summer's superhero hit, Thor.

"My brother had somewhat been through it," said Liam. "And he's always been a big role model in my life. I try to take as much knowledge from him as I can."
