Miley Cyrus continued to open up about her boyfriend – and her “The Last Song” co-star – Australian actor Liam Hemsworth during a new interview on Wednesday.
While taping an appearance on “The Ellen DeGeneres Show” on Wednesday, Miley revealed that she’s been dating the former Aussie soap star for 10 months and that she was so smitten when she first met him, she told the director of the film to cast the blue-eyed gent.
“I met him and he opened the door for me and I was like, ‘I have been in LA for three years and I don’t think any guy has actually opened the door for me.’” Miley said. “It wasn’t that he wanted the job. That’s just who he is… I was like, ‘Wow! That is super impressive!’ I actually turned to the director and said, ‘He’s got the job. He’s hot and he opened the door. Excellent.’”
The singer, who filmed the movie just after breaking up with model and aspiring country singer Justin Gaston, said she didn’t head to “The Last Song” set last year looking for love.
“We started filming and at one point the chemistry was kind of awkward… I liked him a little bit, he liked me a little bit, but it was awkward,” Miley explained. “Then I was like, ‘OK, just fake it. Please, just pretend you like me,’ and he was like, ‘I don’t have to pretend. I really do like you.’ ‘OK, you’re going to be my boyfriend? Cool.’ I was like, ‘Good.’ And we’ve been together for 10 months now and I’m really happy.”
Miley said that the longer the two are together, the more she has grown to adore Liam.
“I like him more now than I did because we know more about each other,” she said.
