Miley Cyrus has nothing but love for her hunky off-and-on again Australian beau, Liam Hemsworth, but she might have some competition for his affection from an unlikely source.

Hemsworth, 21, who stars in the upcoming Hunger Games movie, confesses to a man crush on surfer Kelly Slater in an interview with VMan magazine’s Archetype Issue, on newsstands Sept. 1.

When asked to name a male non-actor he admires, Hemsworth went with the big swell pro: “[Slater] has won 10 world surfing titles. That’s definitely something to admire.”

Surfing is his biggest passion after acting, he added.

“I have always loved surfing,” Hemsworth tells the magazine. “When I was at school that was pretty much all that mattered in my life. Most of my friends surfed so we would go before school, after school, literally whenever we could.”
