Nightmare: Having your mom teach sex ed

We have all had moments we wished never happened and Liam Hemsworth is no exception, especially because his high school sex-ed teacher was his mother.

Nightmare: Having your mom teach sex edLiam Hemsworth is one of the hottest talents out there and for many women the actor oozes sex appeal.

However, he is actually a little embarrassed when it comes to talking about the birds and the bees — unlike ex-fiancée Miley Cyrus who appears to be completely comfortable with her sexually explicit behavior.

The Hunger Games actor recalled how his school sex education classes in Australia were absolutely mortifying. Why? Because his teacher was none other than... his mother!

Hemsworth revealed his experience on the chat show Live With Kelly and Michael, saying, "I was in her class — I would come in for the first part of it and leave halfway through."

The hosts were clearly loving the topic of conversation and teased the actor about how awkward sex ed with his mom must have been.

A shy Hemsworth admitted, "Yeah, a little bit. You'd think it would be, wouldn't it? You have your mom talk about sexual stuff, it's not a class I'd like to be in."

There was one particular class that was especially embarrassing for the Last Song actor though and that was the one about STDs.

Hemsworth recalled, "I used to put my head down most of the time. We had this one time where we were given out cards of different sexually transmitted infections and you had to stand up and talk about the card and she picked me out of the whole room."

"It was like, 'Well, I have chlamydia... thanks for this, Mom. Good class.'"

We can always trust Hemsworth to make us laugh. Now all we wonder is if brothers Luke and Chris Hemsworth also had the same experience?
