Liam Hemsworth Poses With Lion, Whip for British Clothing Label Bench (PHOTOS)

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.
