Child Star to Marry Action Adventure Hero

Miley Cyrus, 19, who plays the title character in the popular Disney TV series “Hannah Montana” is engaged* to marry Liam Hemsworth, 22, who starred in “The Hunger Games.”
They have been dating* since they met while co-starring in “The Last Song” in 2009, a film  about a talented teenage musician who has a difficult relationship with her father.
The film got terrible reviews from the critics but it was commercially  successful and, apparently,* the start of a great romance.
“What happened* happened, and we’ve been together two and a half years,”  Hemsworth said.  “She makes me really happy. 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.”
Cyrus has gone through a lot of controversy in recent years as she is trying to transition  from child star to more adult roles.  There have been photographs of her which many have said were provocative, and allegations* of her smoking marijuana.  However, none of the incidents have been enough to seriously damage* her “good girl” image.
Cyrus, who is the daughter of country music star Billy Ray Cyrus, has been a star since she was 12 years old.  She is listed* as Hollywood’s richest teenager, with a net worth of over $100 million.
Hemsworth is an Australian actor who once had a role on the popular Australian soap opera Neighbours, which also launched* the careers of Dani and Kylie Minogue.
He enjoys surfing and has two older brothers who are also actors.
