Liam Hemsworth has admitted he always felt as though he was an "outsider" when he was in high school
Liam Hemsworth felt like an "outsider" during high school.
The 'Hunger Games' star admits he has never felt as though he fits in and claims he is on a "different page" to everyone else.
He said: "I always feel that I'm on a different page to the people around me, I don't know if that is a good thing or a bad thing. I'm pretty outspoken on a lot of things that I believe in, and at high school I felt like an outsider in a lot of ways, and I don't know how to explain that.
"I'm always someone who preaches that you should be yourself and not conform to what society says of you: make decisions based on what you think is right, don't make decisions based on fear."
The 25-year-old actor - whose brothers Chris and Luke are also in the acting industry - may not feel like he is similar to others but admits he and his siblings all felt a huge sense of pride when they were able to pay off their family's debts.
He told The Independent newspaper: "[My father] called my brother Chris back and said: 'I don't know how to feel. Since I left home I have had debts and I thought I'd be paying them off until I died and have this weight hanging over me, and now to have them completely cleared.'
"They are so happy now and able to spend more time with us, I would love to be able to do something for my parents like that."
