He's had a difficult few days after finally confirming that his relationship with Miley Cyrus is over.
So Liam Hemsworth decided to seek comfort from the woman who knows him best, his mother, on Monday night.
The 23-year-old actor and his mom Leonie were seen leaving the Chateau Marmont Hotel in Los Angeles after apparently having dinner.
Wearing a white T-shirt and blue baseball cap, Liam kept his head down as the pair headed home from their evening out.
However, the strain of the past few weeks were clear to see on Liam's face, with the actor looking tired and stony-faced as he was pictured at the wheel.
Their outing comes as it was claimed that Liam had been left 'mortified' by Miley's now infamous performance at the MTV VMA awards earlier this year.
The 20-year-old singer bumped and ground up against Robin Thicke while wearing nude latex underwear, in what was deemed a wholly inappropriate performance.
A source told RadarOnline.com: 'Miley and Liam were already pretty much broken up at that point, but when he saw her performance and the backlash it created, it was the nail in the coffin.
'That was all he needed to finally break up with Miley once and for all. He was embarrassed, disgusted and mortified by her performance.'
On Monday, representatives for Miley and Liam confirmed that the pair have ended their engagement and their romance, after having dated for two years.
Liam proposed to Miley with a 3.5 carat Neil Lane engagement ring in May 2012, and at the time the Hannah Montana star gushed about her future with the hunky Aussie star.
