Miley Cyrus and her fiance, Liam Hemsworth, have been together since 2009, but the actress/singer still gets butterflies when she looks at her beau.
“I’ll literally look at him and be like, ‘You are hot, dear god!’” the 20-year-old star told Cosmopolitan in an interview for their March issue. “The other day, I turned on the pool heater and it was steaming, and he walked outside and took off his clothes and jumped in the pool. I was like, ‘I’m gonna faint — the hottest guy of my life is in a steaming pool. This looks like a Playgirl shoot.’ So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone.”
And Miley – who graces the cover of the mag in a provocative white suit (pants and a jacket, sans shirt or bra!) – is not the only one who’s taken notice of her man’s assets.
“My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, ‘Who’s that? He is so hot!’” she continued. “[I said,] That’s my hubby!”
The former Disney darling is ecstatic over the impending release of her new album (her first since “Hannah Montana” wrapped in 2011), but said if she had to rank love, family, music or acting in order of most satisfying, “The Hunger Games” hunk owns the top spot.
“Number one is my relationship with Liam,” she said. “That’s what I feel the most confident in because you never know — there’s so much hype behind my new record, but it could come out and, worst-case scenario, everyone f***ing hates it.“
As previously reported on AccessHollywood.com, Miley and Liam got engaged in June 2012.
The couple first met four years ago on the set Adam Shankman’s “The Last Song.”
