Chris Hemsworth Posts Adorable Throwback Pic for Brother Liam's Birthday

"You haven't changed a bit," he wrote to his little brother.

Siblings are going to act like siblings, even when they're bankable movie stars. In fact, their fame just gives them more opportunity to do some goodnatured trolling. Case in point: On Jan. 13, Chris Hemsworth celebrated his younger brother Liam Hemsworth's birthday by posting an adorable, embarrassing childhood picture of them both. The Hunger Games star just turned 31, an occasion his big brother was more than prepared to exploit.

Chris and Liam weren't the first actors in the Hemsworth family; they followed their older brother Luke Hemsworth into the business. Luke is probably best known for his role as Ashley Stubbs on the sci-fi series Westworld, and for making an in-joke cameo in Thor: Ragnarok, portraying "Thor" in a play commissioned by the god's brother Loki (Tom Hiddleston).

But Hollywood parties and red carpet events are a big change from the unrestricted life the brothers led growing up in Australia. In a 2016 interview with Jimmy Kimmel, Luke said, "We'd wake up in the morning and we'd literally say, 'See you, mum,' and just disappear into the bush."

It won't surprise any of his fans that Chris took time out of his day to lovingly roast his kid brother; he is all about family. He's been married to actor Elsa Pataky for over 10 years, and the couple have three children. In a 2020 GQ profile, Chris revealed that he may be taking less work going forward in order to be with his family as his kids grow up.

"Every job I'd take, every time I'd go off on these extended trips, it got harder and harder," he said. "For a little while you don't think the kids notice and then you realize they do. I absolutely want to continue to make films that I'm proud of, but that can also wait. Now what's more important is my kids are at an age I don't want to miss. And I'd hate to look back in 20 years and go, 'Right, let's get to work as a parent' and I've missed it all."
