Liam Hemsworth is "very close" with his Hunger Games co-star, Jennifer Lawrence, and admits that he was livid when nude pics of the Oscar winner were leaked online last year.
The 25-year-old actor says Lawrence didn't deserve to have that happen to her. "She's such a good person -- such a good-hearted person -- and for her to be put through that was unfair," he said. "It made me upset for her. And it made me angry. Really angry."
Hemsworth -- who is looking smokin' hot wearing his tight T-shirt and jeans for the men's magazine -- has struck up quite the friendship with Lawrence and their Hunger Games co-star, Josh Hutcherson -- which explains why he sounds so protective of the actress.
"What's great about having made such good friends with Jen and Josh is that we're able to share it all together and experience it as a threesome," he gushed. "You know, we're really close. Really, close."
The trio always seem to have a good time when they get together to promote their movies. While at Comic-Con in San Diego this year, Lawrence recalled to ET how Hutcherson "scared the life out of [her]" by storming into her dressing room wearing a scary mask.
