The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - INSIDER -

Aus­tralian ac­tor Is­abel Lu­cas has ruled out a re­la­tion­ship with Liam Hemsworth, with the for­mer Home And Away star stat­ing they are sim­ply friends. By­ron Bay-based Lu­cas, who was in Syd­ney this week with so­cially and en­vi­ron­men­tally con­scious brand Out­land Denim, weighed in on spec­u­la­tion by gos­sip mag­a­zines she is dat­ing the youngest Hemsworth brother.

Chris Hemsworth back in the day, laughed at re­ports the Hunger Games star was get­ting re­venge on his es­tranged wife Mi­ley Cyrus by hook­ing up with her and said it came as no sur­prise that the trash mags had linked them to­gether.

“Yeah, read­ing that was fun,” she told Sun­day Con­fi­den­tial sar­cas­ti­cally.

“I think that’s just how the mags work. They just run with a pic and write any story.

“Ob­vi­ously we are just good friends,” Lu­cas added. “The Hemsworths are a beau­ti­ful fam­ily. It is a strong com­mu­nity in By­ron and I am so grate­ful to have so many beau­ti­ful friends there.”

De­spite hav­ing starred in Hol­ly­wood block­busters in­clud­ing Trans­former: Re­venge Of The Fallen, Lu­cas re­mains one of this coun­try’s most down-to-earth act­ing ex­ports. “The work is the work,” she said.

“Artists don’t sign up to this to be­come fa­mous. It can be­come a by-prod­uct. An artist’s job is to cre­ate and tell sto­ries, that’s what I thrive on and love, the cre­ative process and im­mer­sive char­ac­ter er work and us­ing em­pa­thy for my craft. t.

I just love it, it is re­ally fun.”

Lu­cas’s pas­sion for her craft is just as un­wa­ver­ing as her ded­i­ca­tion to pro­tect­ing and planet and the en­vi­ron­ment.

“I get it from my dad,” she said. “We grew up in some re­ally stun­ning places in

Aus­tralia. We lived in Kakadu

Na­tional Park and in Switzer­land d so I’ve al­ways had a deep connection with na­ture since I was very young.

“So what you are close to and what you love you want to pro­tect. It has al­ways been my pas­sion.”

It is for this rea­son she has signed on as the face of Out­land Denim’s Alchemy line.

“I have been so in­spired by their work,” she said. “They are be­ing part of the so­lu­tion on many lev­els. Their suc­cess is founded upon the fact they have done the hard yards and it is pay­ing off.

“The con­cept is re­ally beau­ti­ful.

“Tak­ing women and men who have been in the sex-traf­fick­ing in­dus­try and who are to­tally un­der­priv­i­leged and work­ing with them to give them fair-wage work and cre­ate beau­ti­ful cloth­ing.

“It is a re­ally beau­ti­ful sys­tem and they pro­duce re­ally stylish clothes.”
