Liam Hemsworth (L) and Chris Hemsworth arrive at the premiere of Marvel's "Thor: The Dark World" at the El Capitan Theatre on November 4, 2013 in Hollywood, California.

Fans were left in hysterics after Chris Hemsworth poked fun at his younger brother Liam Hemsworth on Instagram earlier this week.

The Thor star shared a series of photos of himself and his brother with his 51.7 million followers on Tuesday (December 7). In the black-and-white photos, Hemsworth, 38, and Liam, 31, bear a striking resemblance to one another: bearded, dressed in white t-shirts and clasping hands.

The actor accompanied his post with the caption: “Always great interacting with my fans. Met this young lad recently, reminded me of my younger self. Not in looks, but just a real go getter attitude. He insisted on the resemblance and I assured him no one else has this look. Was great to meet you Leon good luck in the future.”

Jasin Boland, the photographer who took the photo of the Australian siblings, wrote in the comments that “Leon is a great Bloke too, not sure who does the better Australian accent though 😉”

The photo has amassed more than 5 million likes on Instagram. Fans shared their appreciation of the amusing post in the comments.

“Those fans, always finding similarities 😂😂😂” wrote one person.

“Well you and this Leon really look alike. I am afraid you might be brothers. 😂” wrote another.

One person commented, “Yeah, no resemblance at all,” while another said, “Interacting with my fans 😭”

Another noticed the brother’s matching facial hair writing, “Notice he’s copied your beard.”

The Hemsworth brothers (Liam, Chris and Luke) all starred in the Australian soap series Neighbours. Liam is best known for his role as Gale in The Hunger Games franchise, while Luke, 41, went on to star in the HBO hit series Westworld.

Chris is currently in Prague filming the sequel to his 2020 action film Extraction. He will next star in Marvel’s Thor sequel, Thor: Love and Thunder, which is slated to arrive in cinemas on July 8, 2022.
