Chris Hemsworth has taken his brother Liam to the beach for a day in the sun, however they both appear to be having starkly different days.
A week after it was announced he had split from wife Miley Cyrus, an apparently heartbroken Liam looked devastated during the friendly catch up with pals.
No hit of Byron Bay vitamin D was going to cheer up his spirits as he crouched down on the beach and appeared to look out to sea.
At times Liam, 29 – who was wearing a pair of simple black boardshorts – was seen in conversation however mostly he seemed disconnected from the group.
Standing with his arms crossed, he kept a straight face while his pals energetically gathered in a circle and chatted on the shoreline. It comes after Liam ‘extended his stay’ in the motherland as he dealt with the split.
He looked downright downcast and all we want to do is fly to Australia and give the guy a big hug. Apparently there are laws against that though, so we’ll just stay here and sympathise from a legally-sound distance.
Meanwhile, Thor actor Chris, 36, looked particularly chuffed to be back on the beach, after a whirlwind year filming and promoting his various films including Men In Black: International and Avengers: Endgame.
Keeping safe from the rays with a black cap, the Marvel star sported a massive grin as he got himself involved in the group and strutted around like he owned the sand (with a worth of $76million [£63million], he probably does).
It comes amid claims Chris was acting as a brilliant shoulder for his little brother in the wake of the separation.
‘Liam is really sad about the breakup,’ a source claimed to Us Weekly last week.
‘His family has been taking care of him, and he’s been leaning on Chris throughout his trip to Australia.’

‘Liam and Miley have agreed to separate at this time. Ever-evolving, changing as partners and individuals, they have decided this is what’s best while they both focus on themselves and careers,’ a statement released by Miley’s reps read.
‘They still remain dedicated parents to all of their animals they share while lovingly taking this time apart. Please respect their process and privacy.’
At the time of the news, Miley was enjoying an Italian holiday with Kaitlynn Carr and was snapped kissing the reality star – who had recently split with husband Brody Jenner.
According to reports, Liam was left ‘heartbroken’ by the images.
‘He was heartbroken and blindsided by those photos,’ the source claimed to Page Six. ‘They are still married and they really did love each other.’
Despite the glum beach day, Liam appeared to have no hard feelings and wished his ex-wife all the best as he broke his silence earlier in the week.
‘Hi all. Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward,’ he wrote.
The actor added: ‘Peace and Love.’
