Chris captioned the Instagram post, "Happy birthday to the best big bro anyone could ask for! I remember when I first started high school and not having to deal with the usual intimidating transition due to being Hemzys little brother.
"What a blessing to have the big man watching over and being given a clear path through the jungle of unruly teenagers! Love you."

If you think one hunky Hemsworth is enough, think again!
Making it in Hollywood isn’t always about competing for the spotlight. If you need proof, let’s look at a group of superstar siblings that don’t mind being compared to one another. Yes, we’re talking about the hottest Australian celebs in tinsel town: the Hemsworth brothers!
So, how many Hemsworth brothers are there? How tall are they? And are any of them still single? Wonder no more, because we’ve got all the answers you’re looking for!
The Hemsworth Family
The three brothers were born in Melbourne and raised in rural parts of the Northern Territory. Their family spent some time in the outback where the boys went on all sorts of crazy bushland adventures. The family later moved to Philips island, where the Hemsworth boys all discovered their lifelong love for surfing.
Their mum Leonie Hemsworth was an actress and English teacher who awkwardly taught Liam’s sex-ed class in high school. Meanwhile, their dad Craig Hemsworth worked in child protection services and is just as buff as his sons are. Judging by several Instagram posts, it’s easy to see where they got their good looks from!
The Hemsworth Household
Growing up, the mischievous brothers got into lots of trouble for fighting amongst themselves! Their home was apparently referred to as ‘The Hemsworth ‘house of horrors’. Eventually, they matured and started experimenting with acting in high school plays. Chris was the first to move to Hollywood to pursue his dreams, then Liam followed suit.
Keeping Up With The Hemsworths
They’ve done lots of movies and TV shows over the years, making us fall in love with their characters on the big and small screen! The brothers are famous for their fair hair, blue eyes, gorgeous smiles, incredible talent – and okay, maybe for their abs, too!
While they’ve outgrown their wild antics, they’re still competitive about the smallest things! But one thing’s for sure – you won’t find any actual sibling rivalry between the three for auditions. Chris and Liam once went head-to-head for the role of Thor in Avengers, but there were no hard feelings when Marvel chose Chris to play the God of Thunder. Of course, that doesn’t mean Liam can’t poke fun at his godly bro on social media for it!
Any Nude Scenes?
Every now and then, the brothers make fun of each other’s shirtless photos and scenes. Luke has stripped down for his role in Satisfaction, Chris kept it cheeky in his movie Rush, while Liam bared it all in nothing but a towel for Isn’t It Romantic. You’re welcome!

What Are They Up To Now?
When they aren’t busy filming, they spend time with each other and their families. Now full-grown men, they’ve come a long way since their days as a rowdy bunch of bush kids. It seems they’ve put their differences behind them, having nothing but brotherly love and support for one another!
Three Times The Charm
Are we totally obsessed? Probably. But after getting to know Luke, Chris, and Liam better, it’s easy to see why they’re all worthy of our undying admiration. We’re still hoping for all three of them to star in a movie together one day – but until then, they have our undivided attention!
