Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus are in the country for the Australian premiere of The Last Song. Ryan Shelton, Katie ‘Monty’ Diamond and Michael ‘Wippa’ Wipfli from Nova FM’s Ryan, Monty and Wippa spoke with Liam Hemworth about what it’s like dating Miley Cyrus.
Hemsworth brought Miley to Australia for Christmas to meet the folks in Phillip Island. Monty asked Liam whether he got any special attention -- Free beers at the local RSL?
“Nothing like that, we just had paparazzi. That was about the only thing different. I never thought in a million years that they’d follow me down there,” says Hemsworth.
Appearing shocked about all the paparazzi attention he was receiving sparked curiosity in the Nova FM studios from Ryan Shelton, who asks “Are the paparazzi weird? Would they be out the front now or is it mainly when you’re with Miley?”
Hemsworth admitted he doesn’t have as many fans as Miley, saying “No, not right now. Yeah I mean it’s not so much for me. No one knows me yet really.”
How many snappers follow these hot stars?
“Sometimes there’s one or two. Sometimes it’s ten. The funny thing is we can go to a restaurant and not have anyone following us and then we can come out and there would be like 30 people out there. That’s when it gets ridiculous,” added Hemsworth.
Madonna and Jessica Simpson are well known as celebrities who try and out-run paparazzi and Liam Hemsworth laughs about the thought of dressing up in a disguise.
“I always joke about that. We should just go out wearing beards and then no one would know,” he says.
Whilst Hemsworth acknowledges all of the attention he’s being given, he doesn’t shy away from telling Nova FM that it’s not the “coolest thing” ever, saying “I don’t know how you get use to it or feel comfortable with it. It’s an embarrassing thing to come into a restaurant and people are photographing you as you come and everyone looks and they’re often yelling things at you. It’s not the coolest thing.”
The Last Song starring Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus premiered last night at the Jam Factory in Melbourne, and Hemsworth was present to welcome the eager audience.
