Hemsworth began by detailing his experiences working with Van Damme in The Expendables 2, where Van Damme reportedly kicked Hemsworth in the chest during a take. However, Van Damme told Hemsworth not to worry because it was a “controlled kick.” Controlled or not, Hemsworth felt the brunt of the blow.
Van Damme’s antics continued when between takes he simply approached Hemsworth and told him he had a nice face, and then proceeded to walk away.
At this point in the interview, Norton says it must have been similar working with Jennifer Lawrence in The Hunger Games. Hemsworth agreed that she frequently did things that took him off guard.
“Right before a take she’d turn to me and ask me if I liked having sex with kangaroos or anything along those lines,” he said. “You never really know what’s gonna come out of her mouth.”
Naturally Norton had to know the answer to that question, so he prompted, “And your answer was…”
Hemsworth gave a hearty, “Absolutely! That’s what Australians do!”
