Liam Hemsworth gets a Teddy Roosevelt tattoo to match Miley’s: sweet or weird?

Liam Hemsworth

Here are some new photos of Liam Hemsworth getting cuffed on the set of Paranoia, which has been filming since mid July, so hopefully it’s getting close to wrap time. Miley wants her man back, Hollywood! Seriously though, this movie might be pretty good when all is said and done because it also stars Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman, who generally add to any motion picture regardless of the quality. Hopefully, Liam will prove his acting mettle and show himself to be more than a cheesy romantic love interest (The Last Song) or a guy that makes sad faces while watching his lady love kiss another dude on television (Hunger Games).

Other than his job, Liam’s been up to some other interesting stuff too. Here is a photo of his new tattoo, which has been posted on Instagram next to a comparison shot of Miley’s Teddy Roosevelt tattoo. Liam selected “if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly” for his tattoo, which leads into the portion of the quote in Miley’s tattoo. I guess those rumors about Liam not liking Miley’s body art were wrong, right? Here’s the full Roosevelt (made during his 1910 speech in Paris) quote again:

Liam Hemsworth

“It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood . . . who, at the best, knows . . . the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat.”

[From Roosevelt Almanac]

As Kaiser pointed out when Miley got her tattoo, this is a slightly odd selection for overpaid young celebrities to have emblazoned upon their skin because they haven’t really experienced much adversity in their lifetimes. However, I think it’s kind of sweet that Liam got a companion tattoo with Miley. Hopefully, he won’t have to change it to “Wino Forever” someday.

More photos from the set. Run Liam, run!

    She can do better

    He’s going to regret that in 18 months …
    Dang. There’s been a fair bit of radio silence from these clowns of late, I thought we might have a break story on our hands, but apparently not.
    Now, I don’t pretend to be an expert on tattoos (although I have toyed with the idea of getting a small one) but in a few years time, aren’t those going to be illegible?

    • Erinn says:

      Hard to say I guess. I don’t have one yet either- have friends that do. I like to think that tattooing has gotten better over the years. I mean you see old men walking around with crazy blurred tats… but those tats are really old. And I’d hope things have improved a LITTLE over the years.

      That’s my main reason for waiting on getting one- I want text rather than an image. So until I figure out just HOW BAD the blur and fade I’m going to hold off.

      • The Original Tiffany says:

        They all blur and fade. My SIL is 33 and is already having to get hers done over with other designs because they aren’t looking so good. Even the ones at the back of her ankles that don’t get much sun.

        Text that small is going to be a mess.

    • eb says:

      better explanation given above…

  3. Boo says:

    I’m sick of seeing brand-new, red and raw around the edges tattoos. Wait a few days, then post it, dude.

  4. Kay_la says:

    I think its hilarious that both of them have mistakes. Liam’s is missing the second “he” and Miley’s says “neither know” instead of “know neither”.

    • KC says:

      Her’s also says “not defeat” instead of “nor defeat.”

    • Beatrice Sparkplug says:

      First thing I noticed. Oops?

    • Shay says:

      It’s actually correct, it’s just midsentence so it doesn’t make sense. Teddy’s speech was misquoted. It goes:
      “At the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who know neither victory nor defeat”

      So it just looks funny when you pull that snippet

    • Steeze says:

      So many mistakes! I would read and reread the tracing before I would let the tattoo artist approach me with a needle!!!

  5. marie says:

    ahh, young love-so sweet and yet so clueless..meh, whatever floats their boats.

  6. lower-case deb says:

    the thumbnail picture in the front page, made me doubletake. i thought he was jamie oliver.

  7. Brown says:

    So wait, is the top picture Miley’s tattoo? Why does it look like there’s a cut across the wrist? Maybe I’m being overly sensitive but that looks to me like a scar/cut.

    • ladybert62 says:

      Hi Brown – I have read someplace else (forgot where) that she is (or was) a cutter.

      • Brown says:

        Yeah, I know there have been rumors about it before, which is why I noticed. Does not look good, and definitely not a picture you should tweet…

  8. serena says:

    LOL Wino forever, so hilarious!

  9. Talie says:

    These two are making every mistake college-aged people make when they think it’ll last forever, including the ill-advised engagement.

  10. Meecey says:

    I want a tat of a shark, my fave animal. I would never get one with a man fiancee or not. Sorry, love doesnt last, tats do!!

  11. mln76 says:

    The quote is cool so I don’t see the big whoop I mean its not like he put Hannah Montana lyrics on his ass.

    • j.eyre says:

      Oh my gosh – I am going to put Hannah Montana lyrics on my ass. As the years continue to roll forward, and my ass continues to slide down my legs, the words will fall into different placement and the skin sags unevenly. Just imagine how profound those new lyrics will become.

  12. Jennika says:

    okay, now I’m thinking that he isn’t going to break up with her for a really long time, or if ever. He doesn’t seem happy at all, but I think he seems like the type of guy who is to chicken to do what he really wants. Maybe he likes staying miserable

  13. mln89 says:

    i’m kind of interested in the movie he is starring in. i think gary oldman is a really interesting actor. as for the tatoos, at least they have a profound quote from teddy roosevelt instead of something insipid like “wino forever”.

    I despise underarm hair on either sex.
