Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are one of the hottest celeb couples around since their steamy hook up while shooting the Disney movie, The Last Song. Apparently Miley’s mom, Tish was executive producer of the movie, as well as matchmaker. Miley told Entertainment Tonight: “I don’t know who had a bigger crush on him at the beginning, my mom or me.”
Hard as it is to believe, the 17-year-old Hannah Montana star was initially reluctant to date the 19-year-old Australian hottie, because she thought that he was too “pretty.” She said: ”I was like, ‘No, maybe he’s just too pretty. I don’t want to be with someone who’s better looking than me. That’s like awkward.’” But Miley’s mom encouraged her to go for the cutie: “My mom was like, ‘No, he is cute – he is!’” Like mother, like daughter.
Liam revealed that he loved spending time with Miley while shooting the movie: “We spent a lot of time together. We’re shooting together every day and together on weekends and we were kind of each other’s only friends down there. We just got really close. We enjoyed being around each other.”
But Liam was less comfortable about kissing scenes with Miley’s family around. He told Entertainment Tonight: “Her mom was watching. Her grandma was also watching, which was really funny.” Liam seems to think that Miley’s grandma could follow in Miley’s mom’s footsteps: “She was on set everyday and she’d be right at the monitor with the headphones on. She should have been directing the film. She knew more about it than anyone. Intimacy’s always tough. I feel like it’s the hardest thing for me as an actor.”
