Los Angeles, Nov 23 IANS | 2 years ago

Actor Liam Hemsworth's finger was hurt while he was trying to impress fans by playing a daring game of Five Finger Fillet in front of them.

The 23-year-old was part of a press show for his forthcoming movie "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire" when he accidentally struck his finger while playing the game in which a player places his palm down, spreads his fingers and attempts to stab in between the spaces with a sharp object, reports femalefirst.co.uk.

In the process, Hemsworth also damaged a USD 10,000 table.

Talking about the incident on a chat show, Hemsworth said: "It was the first stop we did on 'The Hunger Games...' press tour and I wanted to impress everyone and I'd had a couple of drinks. I missed a little bit on the little pinky - see the black dot? Apparently it was a USD 10,000 table as well that I ruined."

The actor believed he would never go wrong with it.

"I used to do it a lot in science class when I was in high school - I didn't love science class. So I'd sit there in this class and use my pen to do this," said Hemsworth.

"You start with a pen and work your way up to a knife," he added.
