Liam spoke to the Independent about how his family helped cultivate a sense of hard work in both actors, which helped the brothers get to where they are today. To thank their father for helping them get to their level of success, Liam told the newspaper that Chris decided to pay off his father's debts. Chris simply told his dad to check his bank account, which showed that all of his debts were erased. As Liam told the newspaper:
If this doesn't make you love the Hemsworth brothers even more, I don't know what will. Chris' gift to his parents is proof that no matter how big of a star you are, you should never forget where you come from. As for Liam, I'm sure he'll find a way to help out his parents in a major way: clearly his older brother taught him well.
[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.
