Chris Hemsworth says he has his brother Liam's back as he deals with his breakup from singer Miley Cyrus.
The Aussie star said in an interview with News Corp Australia this morning he understands what his younger sibling is going through in dealing with the spotlight after the two became famous around the same time.
Chris became an instant superstar in 2011 playing superhero Thor, which made more than $450 million at the box office, and Liam followed less than a year later when the Hunger Games raked in $700 million worldwide.
"The two of us started going through this at the same time and if there is someone who has had a similar experience - especially if it's your brother - and then that's a real bonus," said Chris, currently starring as hard-living racing champion James Hunt in the F1 movie, Rush.
"You can also call each other's bluff a bit. If one starts to drift off in the wrong direction then you don't need to say 'I don't know what you are talking about' because I understand that as well. We have both been through it. There is a way of staying grounded - it's all about your friends and family and we have been lucky to have had that."
Liam attended the Toronto and London premieres of Rush earlier in the month in the aftermath of his then-fiance Cyrus's controversial performance at the VMA Awards.
The pair this week confirmed the end of their three-year relationship which began when they met on the set of the 2009 drama The Last Song.
Liam was recently seen kissing rumoured new flame Eiza Gonzalez, but Chris declined to comment on his brother's state of mind post-breakup.
"I avoid trying to comment on his personal details because it can get a bit misconstrued," he said. "So you will have to ask him."
