Liam Hemsworth reveals why he broke up with Miley Cyrus: It needed to happen

30 May 2016 / 5 months 1 day ago

Liam Hemsworth says his split from Miley Cyrus "needed to happen". 

The pair broke off their engagement in 2013 after three years of dating before rekindling their relationship a few months ago and while Liam couldn't be happier now, he thinks the break-up was the right decision at the time.

He told 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."

And speaking about their relationship now, he added: "People will figure it out, they already have... They're not dumb.

"I guess when I feel something, then I just feel it and I go for it. I make my decisions about what's going to make me happy, what I think is right and what I want to do - and I don't worry too much outside of that."

Liam, 26, also revealed that he rarely goes out anymore, preferring to "get loose" at home after an incident in 2012 when a man threw rocks at him outside a bar and Liam hit him, with the entire incident captured on video. 

He said: "It was silly, drunk stuff and it's kind of why I don't go out anymore, I prefer to get real loose in my own house and have people come to me. When I'm drunk, like anyone, I don't think straight or make the best decisions. You don't see it in the video, but that guy tackled me pretty good... Not that I condone fighting, of course, um, do it in a cage, like in the UFC."
