Nineteen-year-old Miley Cyrus is engaged to “Hunger Games” star Liam Hemsworth, following a three-year relationship that started when the pair costarred in 2009’s “The Last Song.”
“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus told People after the 22-year-old actor proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring.
Beyond the interview with People, neither star has announced the engagement publicly, although Cyrus tweeted “Heaven is a place on earth” the day after the engagement, and wrote “Life is beautiful” on Wednesday (June 6) after the article was published.
In his March cover story for Details, Hemsworth told the magazine about falling in love with his fiancée on the set of Nicholas Sparks’ “Last Song,” when she was 16 and he was 19. “She makes me really happy,” he said. “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.”
Up next for the Australian actor is “Paranoia,” a film with Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman, and “Catching Fire,” the second installment in the record-breaking “Hunger Games” series. Meanwhile, Cyrus is working on new music for a possible fourth studio album.
