He recently split from his wife-of-eight-months, Miley Cyrus.
And on Monday, Liam Hemsworth looked rather downcast while spending time with his brother Chris and their friends on the beach in Byron Bay, NSW.
The Hollywood actor, 29, appeared to be in low spirits and deep in thought as he stood on the shore.

The Hunger Games star, who was wearing a pair of black boardshorts, crossed his arms and gazed into the distance.
He failed to crack a smile and eventually crouched on the edge of the water as the waves hit the shore.
Meanwhile, Chris appeared to be much happier as he chatted to friends.

The Thor actor wore star-printed shorts as well as a black hat and sunglasses to protect himself from the sun.
Liam is believed to be currently staying in a $4.3million beach house in Byron Bay owned by Chris and his wife Elsa Pataky.
He and Miley reportedly called it quits in June after ‘drifting apart’, but the couple did not confirm their split until two weeks ago.

Miley, 26, issued a statement via her publicist to People magazine, in which she confirmed the break-up.
‘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,’ the statement 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.’
