Liam Hemsworth: 'China gave me nightmares'

Actor Liam Hemsworth refused to sleep while visiting China after having the most "horrific" dreams of his life.

The Australian star has been jetting around the globe promoting the final Hunger Games movie, Mockingjay - Part 2, with castmates Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson. He recently visited Beijing for the first time, but found the experience was ruined by a bout of bad dreams.

"We were there for about 24 hours, for some reason I slept about three and a half hours and had the most horrific dreams I've ever had," Liam recalled to talk show host Jimmy Kimmel. "I won't tell you what about, but... I really did (cry), I woke up in sweats about one o'clock in the morning after having tried to sleep for three hours and woke up every 20 minutes. I was like, 'You know what, I'm not sleeping in this country. I'm not gonna do it anymore.' So I stayed up for the rest of the night."

Although their stay was short, the gang were able to fit some sightseeing in. They visited the Great Wall of China, where a friend took a photo of the handsome actor wearing a panda hat with a designer bag on his arm.

"Zoom right in on the Valentino handbag," Liam joked when Jimmy got the picture out. "They had these panda hats that keep you warm! So we got a couple of those and then Jen didn't want to carry her handbag anymore, which is... well, Jen, so I carried her handbag. I figured it added to the whole picture of the Great Wall."

Now the franchise has come to an end, Liam will miss touring the world with his co-stars as they've all become close friends over the years. Since breaking into Hollywood Liam has had to disguise his Down Under accent with a US twang, but at the end of last year he finally shot an Australian film - which left him feeling a little lost at first.

"I thought it would be a lot easier than it was - it was weird because I got to set the first day and all of a sudden I was cycling through my mind of things that I've literally done for the last seven and a half years and (my accent) wasn't a part of it, I was like, 'I guess you just talk like you,'" he grinned.
