When Miley Cyrus met her “Last Song” co-star Liam Hemsworth back in 2009, it seemed that the chemistry between the pair didn’t translate well to the moviegoing public. But the couple is still together in real life, and Details magazine cover boy and “Hunger Games” star Hemsworth opened up to the mag about their relationship.
“What happened happened, and we’ve been together two and a half years,” the Aussie star said. “She makes me really happy. When you start, you want to be professional, but when you’re filming those scenes with someone and pretending to love them, you’re not human if you don’t feel something.”
From there, the twosome embarked on a well-publicized love affair, and as comfortable as he feels with his superstar lady love, he feels equally welcomed by her family. “[Billy Ray] is very spiritual. He’s just one of the nicest guys. Very accommodating. I’ve listened to his music since we got together. It’s awesome,” he said, adding that he had some Nashville-related customs and foods he had to get used to while hanging with the Cyrus clan. “I’d never heard of country-fried steak before. It’s great! I love fried food.”
Former Disney queen Cyrus has always courted controversy. Back in November the saucy 19-year-old told a room of her friends, “You know you’re a stoner when friends make you a Bob Marley cake — you know you smoke way too much f—in’ weed,” at her birthday party. It was a moment that made for some spicy headlines. And a moment that Hemsworth defends.
“She’s in a room full of her best friends. And you have one person who comes in there and videos it,” he said. “The poor girl can’t have one night where she can feel safe in her own world. It’s ridiculous.”
