Liam Hemsworth's family thought he was possessed

LIAM Hemsworth's family thought he was possessed by demons when he was a child.

The Australian actor, 24, admits he and his older brother Chris Hemsworth, 31, were very naughty when they were growing up, as their grandfather gave them rifles and homemade weapons to play with, and claims their uncles used to call him "Devil Child."

He said: "For some reason, my grandpa thought they would be good to give to us - we would just do stupid s**t out in the bush.

"I think everyone agrees that I was the naughtiest as a kid. My uncles used to call me 'Devil Child' or 'Triple' for triple six. They used to tell my brother Chris that they were going to get the demons out of him because he was also a little crazy. But to me, they'd just be like, 'You're too far gone. There's no exorcising you anymore.' "

The 'Hunger Games' star believes his work ethic is what separates him from other people and insists he has worked very hard for his success.

He said: "If you put the work in, and you show that you're willing to work hard, you'll succeed. I feel that I often put in more work, and that is what separates me from the other people."

Liam ended his engagement with Miley Cyrus, 21, last year after four years together, but they are still on friendly terms.

He told the November issue of NYLON Guys magazine: "There's not much to say; there's no bad blood there."
