The reason Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth broke off their first engagement in 2013.

They quietly wed in a beautiful and personal ceremony just before Christmas, and went on their honeymoon with the entire Hemsworth clan – so it’s currently very happy days for Hollywood couple Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth.

But it hasn’t always been that way.

We were reminded recently that the couple split in 2013, when the internet unearthed a tweet from Cyrus, 26, about then-ex Hemsworth, 28, in which she talked about wanting to see The Hunger Games, but not wanting to watch Hemsworth in it “for two f**king hours.”

The couple had met on the movie set of The Last Song, and become engaged when Cyrus was only 19. At the time, Cyrus, the daughter of iconic singer Billy Ray Cyrus, was an established Disney star wanting to update her ‘child’ persona, whilst Hemsworth was just beginning his Hollywood career. They were at two very different points in their lives.

You may recall Cyrus’s infamous onstage twerking with Robin Thicke, at the MTV Music Awards in 2013 – an incident which it now seems led to the beginning of the end of the pair’s first engagement; because, only a month later, Cyrus announced the engagement was no longer.

The couple was apart for three years, until they reconciled in 2016. At that time, they both discussed what went wrong in 2013.

Speaking to radio personality Howard Stern, Cyrus admitted she needed time and space to grow up.

“I had to. I don’t like when relationships are two halves trying to make a whole,’ she said.

“You get time to be yourself. You get time to grow up. I think if you’re growing up attached to another person, you never really get solid as your own being.”

In that same year, Hemsworth offered his own explanation of the split to GQ Australia.

“Of course it was hard, man. But at the time we were going in different directions and it’s just what needed to happen.

“We were both super young and it was a good decision at the time – we both needed that.”

At the time of the interview, the couple had recently become engaged; and now, it seems, there’s been no looking back ever since.
