Miley Cyrus is engaged to Liam Hemsworth, and it didn't take much for The Hunger Games star to win her heart back when they first started dating.
Miley has had her fair share of heartbreak over the yearsÂ—Nick Jonas broke her heart, and she had broken up with her model boyfriend Justin Gatson right before she started filming The Last Song back in 2009.
So when she started work on that movie, she was totally against being in a relationship. After experiencing so much drama in her young life, she was probably trying to take a break from boys by celebrating being single. But instead she ended up in what would become her most serious relationship.
Miley Cyrus was just sixteen when she met Liam Hemsworth, so some people will probably say that she was too young to start something so serious then and is too young to get engaged now. But if she and Liam opt to stay engaged for a few years like some couples do, they'll have plenty of time to make sure that they actually want to take that next big step by getting married.
For Miley to get engaged so young, you'd think that Liam had to do something big to sweep her off her feet, like lavish her with gifts or write beautiful love poems for her. However, according to Yahoo! omg!, one small, gentlemanly gesture is what won Miley's heart and helped Liam score a part in The Last Song. Here's what Miley told Ellen DeGeneres about her future fiancÃ© back in 2010:
"I met him, and he opened the door for me, and I was like, I have been in L.A. for three years and I don't think any guy has actually opened the door for me. 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."
So in a way Liam Hemsworth has Miley Cyrus to thank for snagging the role of Gale in The Hunger GamesÂ—starring in The Last Song and dating Miley got the young actor a lot of publicity, and without it he might not have ever gotten the part.
Miley and Liam have broken up before, and Miley has spent a lot of her young life in a relationship. This means she hasn't had much time to really get to know herself without the influence of someone else, and she hasn't had the chance to meet many potential suitors (it's kind of sad that a guy opening a door for her impressed her). Because of this, it might seem like she and Liam won't last. But who knows? Miley loves to defy her critics, so hopefully she'll prove them wrong.
