We all have that fear of being alone, including Miley Cyrus. During an interview with Barbara Walters, Cyrus opened up about breaking off her engagement to Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, and why she stayed with him even though she knew things were moving too fast.
While filming a segment for an upcoming ABC news special Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013, Walters asked Cyrus the personal questions that they world has been wanting to know about her relationship with her ex fiancé Liam Hemsworth.
In a very honest and sincere answer, Cyrus told Walters that she had an overwhelming fear of being alone, and that is what made her stay with Hemsworth as long as she did. Cyrus was only 19-years-old when she and Hemsworth got engaged, and while she says she enjoyed having a “fat rock” on her finger, she also says she knew things were moving way too fast.
“I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year,” Cyrus said. “I don’t think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn’t change being engaged,” she continued. “It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years, but now, I just feel like I can actually be happy. I wait for those moments of silence, when I’m just at my house, by myself.”
Earlier this month, Hemsworth opened up about his break-up with Cyrus during an interview with E! News. “These days I feel like I’m more centered and grounded than I’ve ever been,” he said. “I’ve learned so much. The first few years in L.A. were really tough and scary, but I had to figure things out for myself.” When asked about the rumors surrounding his split from Cyrus he replied: “What I always keep in mind is that I know what the truth is and that’s all that matters. I know I’m a good person.”[Image via Wikimedia Commons]
