Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth came to Manila last March 15, 2013 to promote his Summer campaign for Bench through a series of mall shows.

But before he braved the meet and greet with his "hungry" fans, Liam took the time to sit down with the press and a few select bloggers to talk about "Catching Fire" and a whole lot of things on top of his summer campaign for Bench at the Peninsula, Manila. Yes, the lion experience was brought up.

I managed to ask Liam a question through Raymond Gutierrez, who hosted the presscon, and THIS (there's a video!) is what he answered to "Do you believe that clothes make the man?"

Coming from a guy who doesn't need much effort in dressing up to look good, his response was expected.
Quickly making his way up Hollywood's A-List ranks with blockbuster movies such as "The Last Song" and "The Hunger Games," there's no stopping Liam as he comes back on the big screen as Gale Hawthorne in the most anticipated film this year "Catching Fire," the second installment to the "Hunger Games" saga.
Now there's a question from my friend Alyssa Lapid which I find very smart and current. She asked "If you were in the Hunger Games and Bench was a cornucopia, what item would you grab first?" from which Liam initially answered "a good pair of shoes." There's a good amount of running-for-your-life involved in the movie in case you didn't know.
Also scheduled for release this 2013 are movies "Paranoia" where he stars opposite Hollywood legends Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman and "Empire State" with Dwayne Johnson and Emma Roberts. Next year is "Arabian Nights" where Liam is slated to star as Ali Baba.
Liam had a series of meet and greets that day after the presscon. Photos to be posted at Bench's Facebook account.
Liam Fact: Did you know that he is an active philanthropist? Taking after his parents who worked in child protection for more twenty years, Liam is an active ambassador of the Australian Childhood Foundation. Beyond doing his best as an actor, Liam makes it a point to set a good example as a role model for kids to look up to.

As a Global Benchsetter, Liam is currently promoting Bench's latest campaign for Summer 2013.

The collection features key items such as plaid button-downs, nautical inspired cotton shirts and denim jackets over v-neck jersey tops.

Liam's favorites? The Bench OJ denims that he wore during the shoot.

During his photo shoot the actor couldn't help but admire how all the pieces fit him well.
