On Thursday, the Avengers: Endgame star gave his younger brother a shout-out during his interview with News.com.au, where he also appeared to address The Hunger Games star's 2019 breakup with Miley Cyrus.
While discussing the Hemsworth brothers' famously toned physiques, Chris joked that Liam is now the fittest of the trio. "I think he's done it," he told the outlet. "Did you see the Men's Health cover? I thought, 'Not bad kid. Not bad.'"
As for how the 30-year-old surpassed his older bro, Chris credited his recent move with helping him get in shape. "He's out there training and staying fit and back in Australia doing his thing," he continued. "It's Australian living, I guess. We got him out of Malibu!"
Prior to their split, Liam and Miley lived in Malibu together after rekindling their romance in 2016. In fact, their place of residence even served as inspiration for the Disney alum's song "Malibu," which was about their relationship. After filing for divorce from Miley in August, Liam moved back home to Australia.
This isn't the first time that someone from the Hemsworth family has provided insight on Liam and Miley's relationship. Back in November, Chris' wife Elsa Pataky gave an update on how the Isn't It Romantic star was doing post-split and seemingly shaded the "Slide Away" singer by saying Liam deserved "much better."
"My brother-in-law, well...after a relationship that you've dedicated 10 years to, he's a little bit down, but he's coping well," she said. "He's a strong boy and he deserves the best. I think he deserves much better."

In another interview, Elsa noted being back in Australia had been helping Liam get through the painful breakup. "He's getting happier and he has his family," the model shared with Australia's Sunrise. "His brother is his best friend, so that's good. He's spent some time with us."
Speaking to Men's Health Australia, Liam opened up about how his fitness journey played a role in keeping him "balanced" throughout the aftermath of his and Miley's divorce, telling the outlet, "This last six months, honestly, for keeping my head level and just staying balanced, I'd say exercise has been big for me."
