Liam Hemsworth Whipped For Real In 'The Hunger Games' Scene

If you have yet to see The Hunger Games: Catching Fire, then you may want to come back to this post when you have. This post does contain a small spoiler for those who have yet to see the movie.

Liam’s character Gale tried to go against a peacekeeper and is brought out to the town square in District 12 by Commander Thread. It is there that Thread proceeds to whip Gale violently for his actions. The man who plays Thread, Patrick St. Espirit, let us in on a little secret about the movie’s filming.

He revealed to E!, “I really whipped him. He’s an Australian boy — they’re tough over there. They build them tough.”

He added, “The material is soft but towards the end, [Liam] was like, ‘Alright, mate, maybe just a couple of more of these. I’m starting to feel raw.”
