“The Hunger Games” are painful, but so was Liam Hemsworth‘s childhood.

The youngest of the Hemsworth brothers, including actors Chris (“Thor”) and Luke, told Jimmy Fallon on Thursday’s “Late Night” that he experienced a real-life Hunger Games scenario when he was shot by Luke.

“That was the first bit of acting I ever did,” Hemsworth added. “Except it was real — it was method.”
