Editor Showdown: Liam vs. Chris — Who’s the Better Hemsworth?
Welcome to another addition of Editor Showdown! Last week, we debated which MTV show was better (and it looks like I need to Netflix Teen Wolf now), but this week, it’s all about the hottest brothers in Hollywood — the Hemsworths!
When I say hot, I mean in all senses of the word. Things could not be going better for each of them right now. Liam has Catching Fire coming out in just two weeks(!), while Chris’ Thor sequel is officially out in theaters. We’re sure both movies will end up being total box-office successes, but which Hemsworth has the edge? I (Amanda) am pro-Liam, while Kaitlin is pro-Chris. Let’s discuss…
Amanda, Editor: First of all, let me just get this out of the way: Do I like that Liam was flaunting a new girl mere HOURS after his split with Miley Cyrus was official? No, but that doesn’t mean I’m going to give up on him. At 23, he’s young and allowed to make mistakes. OK, now that that’s out of the way, let me discuss why I think he’s the superior Hemsworth brother…
Liam is part of one of the BIGGEST (and BEST) franchises out there: The Hunger Games. That means he rolls with a pretty awesome crowd that includes Jennifer Lawrence, Josh Hutcherson, Sam Claflin, and many more. Does Chris get to hang out with J-Law? No, didn’t think so. Also, we love that Liam isn’t too cool to share gross-out stories, like the time he and J-Hutch puked after eating too many White Castle burgers. It’s that combination of natural comedy and the ability to be super dramatic on camera that really makes Liam a star.
And although he’s no longer with Miley, the time they were together, he seemed like such a sweet and doting BF. Only a true romantic would propose to his significant other at such a young age! Also, Chris is happily married with a baby, so sorry to break it to you — there’s little to no chance you could ever end up with him. Liam on the other hand… there’s still hope.
Kaitlin, Associate Editor: As much as I do love me some of the younger Hemsworth, I respect Chris more. I mean, both have got pretty much everything in the looks department, so beyond that, Chris is the way to go in my opinion.
Yes, Liam is a part of The Hunger Games — as Gale, the male character I probably care about LEAST. Team Peeta all the way! Actually, scratch that — make that Team Finnick. I am all about Finnick. Meanwhile, Chris is a part of The Avengers, which actually beat The Hunger Games at the box office by a long shot. Plus, he’s one half of the cutest bromance we’ve ever seen: Hiddlesworth, with Avengers/Thor co-star Tom Hiddleston
To trump Liam even further, Chris is far more beefy. He was even told to calm down on his workout routines because he was getting TOO muscular. WHA-?! And he can pull off both short and long hair, while I prefer Liam with only his usual short.
Finally, Chris is an amazing companion. Although it’s true that I could dream about being with Liam now that he ditched Miley Cyrus, we all know that’s never gonna happen, and — tough love — chances are that it won’t happen for you either. Chris, however, seems like the epitome of a perfect husband AND dad. (Seriously, have you seen him with his baby? ::ovary burst::)
Honestly, you can’t go wrong either way. But, IF you had to decide, which of the Hemsworth brothers is better? Choose which editor’s side you’re on in the comments below!
