Liam Hemsworth Was Too Young To Watch Original Independence Day


Will Smith Jeff Goldblum Bill Pullman Vivica A Fox Chris Hemsworth Luke Hemsworth Liam Hemsworth

The Australian actor is now getting a chance to be a part of the franchise, after being cast as Jake Morrison in the follow up film Independence Day: Resurgence.

When the Will Smith movie first came out in 1996, Liam, who is now aged 26, was too young to see it as it carried a PG-13 rating. However, it didn’t take him long to get his hands on a copy.

“I didn’t see it in the cinema as I was only 6 years old and my mum and dad thought I was too young. When I about 7, one of my brothers bought a VHS copy and I remember secretly watching the movie,” he smiled to Us Weekly magazine.

Independence Day: Resurgence - Teaser Trailer


Everyone knows the tale of David Levinson and Captain Steven Hiller, the two men at the forefront of the last Alien invasion. Since that last fateful day, Levinson has worked tirelessly to protect the world and strengthen it from alien attacks, even using the technology they discovered on board the alien spaceship to counter their possible attack methods.

When the people of Earth learn that Aliens are on their way back to our planet, there's automatic hysteria and a hope that the newly installed space defences will help counter the attack. Whatever stringent plans David develops he, more than anyone, realises that it will probably not be enough to protect us.

Independence Day: Resurgence takes place twenty years after the original movie and sees many of the cast taking up the same role again. The film is directed by Roland Emmerich (known for The Day After Tomorrow, Godzilla and the first Independence Day movie.)

Their victory was an incredible one two decades ago, but that doesn't mean the war is over.

Jeff Goldblum Performs Mock Circumcision On James Franco


James Franco Seth Rogen Miley Cyrus Jeff Goldblum

The 127 Hours star, whose mother is Jewish, was feted by celebrities including pal Seth Rogen as part of his fourth annual Hilarity for Charity fundraiser, which raises money for Alzheimer's research.

James was welcomed into Judaism during a private bar mitzvah ceremony, usually celebrated by 13-year-old boys, earlier this month (Oct15), so Saturday's party at the Hollywood Palladium served as a belated reception with celebrity guests.

Seth served as the night's host, and told the audience the bar mitzvah wouldn't be complete unless James underwent a circumcision, which is typically performed by a rabbi on baby boys.
