On the set of The Last Song, which debuted in theaters in March 2010, the Hannah Montana star got to know the Australian actor. The couple, who fell in love while filming, gained attention for breaking up and reconciling multiple times before Hemsworth proposed to Cyrus in June 2012.
“What happened, happened and we’ve been together two and a half years. She makes me really happy,” the Hunger Games star told Details that same year. “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.”
The singer and the actor decided against getting married in 2013, sparking breakup rumors that were later verified in September. Hemsworth made a rare comment about their relationship to Men’s Fitness in November 2015 while the “Wrecking Ball” the singer-songwriter wrote songs on the broken engagement.
“You fall in love with who you fall in love with; you can never choose,” he said. “I guess some people just come with a little more baggage. I mean, look — we were together five years, so I don’t think those feelings will ever change. And that’s good because that proves to me that it was real. It wasn’t just a fling. It really was an important part of my life and always will be. She’s a free spirit. I think she’ll always surprise people with what she does, but she’s not a malicious person in any way. She’s a young girl who wants to do what she wants to do.”
The couple was still together the following year, as evidenced by Cyrus’s continued wearing of an engagement ring.
“I needed to change so much. And changing with someone else not changing like that is too hard. Suddenly you’re like, ‘I don’t recognize you anymore.’ We had to re-fall for each other,” the “Malibu” singer explained to Billboard in 2017.
When their California house was destroyed in a wildfire in 2018, the couple became stronger.
”He thinks it’s not romantic, but I learned that it is,” she said of referring to Hemsworth as her “survival partner” on the Howard Stern Show after the November 2018 fire. “That is why you pair up with someone, for survival, and he was so incredible.”
On December 23, 2018, the couple exchanged vows at their Tennessee residence after a month.
“I think it’s very confusing to people that I’m married. But my relationship is unique,” she told Elle in July 2019. “And I don’t know that I would ever publicly allow people in there because it’s so complex, and modern, and new that I don’t think we’re in a place where people would get it. I mean, do people really think that I’m at home in a f—king apron cooking dinner?”
In August of that year, pictures of Cyrus engaging in PDA with Kaitlynn Carter appeared, leading to the announcement of the couple’s separation.
He then said on Instagram, “Just a quick note to say that Miley and I have recently separated, and I wish her nothing but health and happiness going forward,.”
At the time, Cyrus refuted cheating.
“Once Liam & I reconciled, I meant it, & I was committed,” she wrote in a lengthy social media thread. “There are NO secrets to uncover here. I’ve learned from every experience in my life. I’m not perfect, I don’t want to be, it’s boring. I’ve grown up in front of you, but the bottom line is, I HAVE GROWN UP. I can admit to a lot of things but I refuse to admit that my marriage ended because of cheating. Liam and I have been together for a decade. I’ve said it before & it remains true, I love Liam and always will.”
In January 2020, their divorce was finally formalized. Cyrus has been seeing Maxx Morando since late 2021, whereas Hemsworth has been seeing Gabriella Brooks since late 2019.
Sparks immediately flew when the two met on the set of their 2009 movie The Last Song! In the words of Cyrus to Parade, “[Liam has] become my best friend in the whole wide universe.” “I cherish him. Since he is from Australia, he didn’t know me as the star I am here, so he appreciates me for who I am. I could introduce myself to him on my own terms and manner. He had no preconceived ideas about who I should be.”
Red Carpet Official
At the 18th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Oscar party in West Hollywood in 2010, the couple posed for a photo. According to Cyrus, “I enjoy when men work hard.” “I consider it crucial. I always put a lot of effort into my profession, so it’s nice to have a partner that shares my enthusiasm for excellence rather than mediocrity. We constantly try to give 130 percent.”
At the Los Angeles premiere of The Last Song in March 2010, Cyrus gave Hemsworth a bear embrace. Regarding her relationship with the actor, Cyrus said to Teen Vogue, “I think we’re both deeper than typical people — what they think and how they feel.” “Despite being extremely appreciative of what he has, he doesn’t let it get to him. I’m the same way.”
Cyrus flashed the peace sign with Hemsworth while out and about in L.A. in July 2010. “She makes me really happy,” Hemsworth has said of Cyrus. “When you start, you want to be professional, but when you’re filming those scenes with someone [in The Last Song] and pretending to love them, you’re not human if you don’t feel something.”
From August 2010 until April 2011, Cyrus and Hemsworth had broken relationships.
In December 2011, while on vacation in Hawaii, the attractive couple exchanged a kiss. The pair utilizes Skype to communicate when they are separated from one another. Hemsworth tells Us, “A little bit every day.” “Seeing her face makes it so much easier for those long stretches apart.”
The actor attended the CNN Heroes Gala in Los Angeles with the “Can’t Be Tamed” singer that same month.
“I think there’s a masculinity about [Australian men] that’s like growing up in the South, like I did,” Cyrus has said of Hemsworth (at the Vanity Fair Oscar party in West Hollywood in February 2012). “It’s very respectful and they’re a little bit more respectful.”
In June 2012, Hemsworth popped the question to the Hannah Montana alum with a huge 3.5-carat Neil Lane engagement ring.
Cyrus tweeted a picture of her two greatest loves, Hemsworth and their dog Ziggy, in June 2012. The LOL actress claimed that she felt as like “all my fantasies were coming true” after becoming engaged.
At the Australians in Film Awards and Benefit Dinner in Los Angeles in June 2012, the couple was photographed. “Fortunately, I received a callback to read [for The Last Song] with my now-fiance, with whom I just got engaged. We fell in love while reading together, and now we’re married,” Hemsworth stated before hastily adding, “Well, not yet, but we will be! We’re quite thrilled. quite content.”
Crazy for Christmas
While spending Christmas 2012 together, the couple posed for a funny photo with Miley’s mother, Tish Cyrus, and brother Trace Cyrus.
At the Los Angeles premiere of Hemsworth’s movie Paranoia in August 2013, Cyrus and Hemsworth made their first red carpet appearance together in 14 months. According to a source who spoke to Us, “Miley and Liam acted like they didn’t even know one other the entire night.” Even though she was wearing her ring, they behaved strangely.
Calling It Quits
The pair parted ways in September 2013. In December that year, Cyrus spoke to Barbara Walters about getting engaged at 19. On Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013, she remarked, “I was so afraid of ever being alone, and I believe conquering that fear this year was bigger than any other shift that I had this entire year.” “I don’t think I understood what 19 was until I got engaged at 19, but I wouldn’t change being engaged for anything.”
Family Ties That Tell
After Cyrus and Hemsworth spent New Year’s 2016 together, the “Wrecking Ball” songstress was snapped hanging out at a music festival in Australia with Liam’s sister-in-law, Elsa Pataky. “I love people I can be crazy with!!” Pataky, who married Chris Hemsworth in 2010, wrote on Instagram. “@mileycyrus @martamilans @gisellamarengo #michele #samhemsworth @fallsfestival #bestfriends #fun #music #festival #falls.”
Movin’ On … Together
In January 2016, Cyrus and two friends were seen unloading a U-Haul truck at Hemsworth’s Malibu house. The two “are resuming up right where they left off,” a source told Us.
What’s That Bling?
Cyrus shared multiple pictures of herself in January 2016 wearing an eye-catching diamond ring on her left hand after they reunited in Australia. The ornament had an uncanny resemblance to the 3.5-carat, specially commissioned Neil Lane sparkler Hemsworth gave her in May 2012. A source told us that Hemsworth indeed gave her the engagement diamond when he first proposed.
Multiple sources told Us Weekly in January 2016, issue that Hemsworth never gave up on Cyrus, even during her wildest phases. “He’s never met anyone quite like her who has that hold on him,” one insider told Us, while a second source said Cyrus “never really got over” Hemsworth. It took some acceptance of the actor to finally reconsider their romance. “He realizes she was growing up and experimenting; he took a step back and gave her time to do that,” the first source said. “Miley’s always had a special place in his heart.”
In March 2016, Cyrus showed her engagement ring from her handsome fiancé as she strolled through New York City’s SoHo district.
In September 2016, Hemsworth and Cyrus spent a date night in New York City while holding hands. They were going to spend some time together at the Catch restaurant in Manhattan’s Meatpacking District.
Laughing Off the Split Rumors
In July 2018, following allegations that the couple disagreed with having children, Cyrus and Hemsworth denied divorce rumors. The Hunger Games alum posted a clip of himself and Cyrus having fun and singing on Instagram to reassure followers that their relationship is still strong.
They held hands on a December 2018 date night in New York City.
“I call him my survival partner now,” Cyrus told Howard Stern of her man in December 2018. “And he thinks it’s not romantic, but I learned that is why you pair up with someone for survival.”
As reported in January that the Australian actor’s marriage to the “Malibu” singer had left her feeling “very joyful.” She has just finished recording her upcoming album, and she and Liam are overjoyed.
Hemsworth told Extra that same month that he felt “fortunate” to have the celebrity in his life, demonstrating that the sentiment was shared.
Same Couple, Different Status
Cyrus admitted in the March issue of Vanity Fair that married life with Hemsworth didn’t feel much different to her. “I would say that losing the house changed us much more than getting married changed us,” she said. “When you experience what we experienced together with someone, it is like glue. You’re the only two people in the world who can understand.”
She also attributes the couple’s decision to get married to the occasion. Who knows if we would have been prepared to take this step or even gotten married without losing Malibu? However, the timing seemed right, so I followed my heart. I try to live as much as possible “in the now” because nobody can guarantee tomorrow or the day after that.
