It is a tale as old as time. Er, it is a tale as old as the movie version of the Nicholas Sparks book that gave us a meet-cute with a side of strawberry milkshake. (Same difference, right?) If photos of Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth through the years teach one thing, it is that we should never underestimate the power of love. Or the power of time. Or the power of The Last Song.
Hemsworth and Cyrus met in 2009 while making The Last Song, and about ten years later, they tied the knot. The road leading them from the sparks (pun could not be more intended, thank you kindly) that flew on the set of The Last Song to their wedding day has not been without ebbs and flows. Cyrus and Hemsworth met, fell in love, went public with their relationship, and attended premieres and award shows together.
But then, they broke up. And then got back together. And then they got engaged. And then they broke up again. They saw other people. They reunited. They got re-engaged. And then, on Dec. 23, 2018, the couple got married in Franklin, Tenn. And on Sunday, Feb. 10, Cyrus will perform at the Grammys and we will probably see her with Hemsworth on the red carpet.
Wow, what a decade it has been for this lovely couple. And wow, has the last decade produced some lovely Cyrus and Hemsworth pictures. Let's get ready to rumble our way through some lovely nostalgia.
And with that official marriage announcement, the "secret wedding" rumors that've followed this couple around for years realized there was no more work to be done here. The "secret wedding" rumors packed up their things and left for good (and probably set their sights on another unmarried celebrity couple who's just trying to mind their business and live their life).
Oh, no big deal. They're just posing with Elton Freakin' John at Elton Freakin' John's Oscar party.
Cyrus went with Hemsworth to the premiere of his movie Paranoia in 2013. It was, as Us Weekly noted, their first joint red carpet appearance in over a year. Get ready to jump back another 14 months.
Just a few weeks before the pair went to the Australians in Film Awards together, Cyrus confirmed to People magazine that she and Hemsworth were engaged.
I still need that nail polish Cyrus wore to Vanity Fair's annual Oscar party.
A month before the PCAs, Cyrus and Hemsworth attended CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tribute together.
