How Liam Hemsworth Really Feels About Miley Cyrus Now

In August 2019, Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus confirmed their split after eight months of marriage and a decade-long on-again-off-again romance. Immediately after that announcement, Cyrus was spotted making out with Kaitlynn Carter during a vacation. Their romance was short-lived, lasting for a bit over a month, but the couple was very public. Soon after, Cyrus started dating Cody Simpson, a longtime friend, who she announced her split from in August 2020.

Simpson and Cyrus are apparently good friends still, but the same can't be said for Cyrus and Hemsworth. Or at least that's what Us Weekly reported. In August 2020, an inside source told the outlet, "Liam kind of has a low opinion of Miley at this point," claiming, "He was really hurt by their split." This person seemingly referenced the singer's relationships with Carter and Simpson, saying, "Miley and Liam haven't talked much since their divorce. Liam was hurt by Miley moving on with new love interests shortly after they broke up." 

The insider shared, "Liam has been trying to be as private as possible and respectful about their relationship and breakup, and it's a shame to him and his family that certain aspects about his and Miley's relationship have been made public." While Cyrus dated rather publicly, Hemsworth had moved on in a more low-key way, getting spotted with Maddison Brown in October 2019. In March 2020, news broke that Hemsworth was dating a model named Gabriella Brooks.

Liam Hemsworth is 'rebuilding' after the split

Without explicitly referencing the divorce from Miley Cyrus, Liam Hemsworth was asked if he was in "rebuilding mode" during an April 2020 interview with Men's Health. In response, the Hunger Games alum agreed and said, "Rebuilding? Yeah, that's a good way to put it." The actor did not share any specifics about his life post-divorce, but he did include that rebuilding consisted of "appreciating the little things."

Hemsworth said, "It's something I always try to remind myself to do, especially in times that maybe things aren't going the way I planned or the way I wanted things to go. Appreciating what I do have and searching for things that make me happy and things that make me a better person." During that "search," he found that "exercise and fitness is a big thing for [him]," making him feel both "feel balanced and levelheaded."

While he's making efforts to "feel balanced and levelheaded," the star was also been very private and respectful about the breakup. However, some of his relatives don't have any issue taking swipes at the former Mrs. Hemsworth. 

Liam Hemsworth's brother and sister-in-law have shaded Miley Cyrus

Chris Hemsworth touched on Liam Hemsworth's renewed dedication to fitness — and possibly shaded Miley Cyrus — during an April 2020 interview with When asked if his brother is the "fitter" sibling, Chris said, "I think he's done it," adding, "Did you see the Men's Health cover? I thought, 'Not bad kid. Not bad'. He's out there training and staying fit, and back in Australia doing his thing." 

The Thor star theorized, "It's Australian living, I guess. We got him out of Malibu!" That might have been a reference to the divorce from Cyrus, since they used to live in Malibu, Calif. together and she even had a song called "Malibu," which is widely believed to be about their romance.

While Chris may have taken a dig at Cyrus, his wife Elsa Pataky certainly did when she spoke to reporters at a November 2019 event. According to USA Today, she remarked, "My brother-in-law, well... after a relationship that you've dedicated ten years to... he's a little bit down, but he's coping well. He's a strong boy and he deserves the best. I think he deserves much better." She certainly didn't mince words there.

Cyrus didn't actually address the shade, but a source close to the "Slide Away" singer told HollywoodLife, "Miley really isn't concerned one way or another with what Elsa says or thinks about her," even though the comment did "shock" her. The two former sisters-in-law seemingly had a close relationship pre-divorce, since they have matching tattoos.

Miley Cyrus feels like she was 'villainized for moving on'

Neither Miley Cyrus nor Liam Hemsworth has shaded each other, or even made one negative remark about the other, since they split up. However, the "Party in the USA" singer opened up during an August 2020 episode of the Call Her Daddy podcast, according to HollywoodLife.

During the podcast, Cyrus admitted, "At first when I got out of my long-time relationship and it didn't work... That was really, like, traumatizing." However, with time, her perspective evolved. She divulged, "Now I'm in a place where I look at it and love it and respect it." Cyrus didn't even mention her ex-husband by name, but it was clear who she was referring to when she discussed the "very public, very big breakup that was over a 10-year span of a relationship."

Cyrus also dished on dating post-breakup. She didn't mention exes Kaitlynn Carter or Cody Simpson specifically, but she did remark, "I feel like as a woman, I was villainized for moving on. And I really think that that's not acceptable," citing male celebrities who did the same thing and faced much less backlash.

Hemsworth hasn't shared too many details about how he truly feels about Cyrus post-divorce and it's unclear if he ever will. Cyrus has been very open about her life in music, in interviews, and on social media. In contrast, Hemsworth has been decidedly more under the radar, with "inside sources" and family members speaking out instead.
