Lions, Liam and whips, oh my!

Hunger Games actor Liam Hemsworth put his fears to the ultimate test when he posed alongside a rather, um, active lion in an ad campaign for British clothing label Bench.

The 22-year-old gets his safari on in the sexy photo shoot, in which he holds onto a whip as the lion does its thing. Clearly, Gale Hawthorne would be impressed.

Hemsworth signed with the label about three months ago, according to a report. This is his first shoot for Bench, and you can check out all of the steamy photos in the gallery, above.

The Australian-born actor is currently engaged to Miley Cyrus. They confirmed their upcoming nuptials in June.
