Quick, imagine having dinner at the Hemsworth household: There's probably a fair bit of bickering over who gets the biggest cut of meat, but overall, sounds pretty pleasant, no? Not so, according to Jennifer Lawrence, who last night on Conan revealed that the Hemsworth family is nothing but a bunch of scab-eaters and shower-prankers.

After mentioning that Liam Hemsworth's nickname among the Hunger Games cast is "Bear," Conan asked her to explain — and she did, Australian accent and all:

He's an animal. His whole family, they're real animals. It's the craziest family I've ever been around in my life. The way they communicate is so physical and crazy. They'll be like, "Ay I'm going to eat this scab and I'll give you five bucks ARRRGH!" They're disgusting. They're real bears, they're animals.

Seems about right. She also added that apparently, one time Chris Hemsworth thought it would be funny to bust in on his friend in the shower and cut his hair off. Hear the accent in all its glory below.
