Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cryus' Engagement 'Shocked' Me, His Ex Says (EXCLUSIVE INTERVIEW)

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's Cute Couple Moments

The ex-girlfriend of Liam Hemsworth — who was dumped for his fiancé Miley Cyrus — has spoken out about the pair's shock engagement, admitting to Celebuzz: “I’m not going to lie, I’m a little surprised.”

The Hunger Games star’s high school sweetheart, Laura Griffin, dated Hemsworth, 22, for six years until he found love with Cyrus, 19, in 2009.

Though she was reluctant to speak about her former boyfriend who she confessed was "still someone I care about", Griffin revealed that she was shocked Hemsworth had proposed to his on-again, off-again “Party in the U.S.A.” girlfriend.

“Hearing your high school sweetheart -- who is the same age as you -- is getting married, is a shock,” Griffin, 22, who lives in Melbourne, Australia, told Celebuzz in an exclusive interview.

Like the rest of the world, Griffin said she found out via media reports that Hemsworth had asked Cyrus to marry him in what another source told Celebuzz “was an intimate proposal at home with just the couple and their dogs.”

“Of course it hurts seeing someone I spent so many years with moving on, especially when I learned from the media,” brunette Griffin said.

“But at the same time if they are in love and are happy why not? I’m very happy for him.”

When Hemsworth first starting dating Cyrus after they met on the set of The Last Song, Griffin was still very much in love with the man she called her “best friend.”

“We were together when he left for America to film The Last Song and we broke up after a few months of him being over there," she said.

“Liam never cheated on me -- that was what was portrayed in the media -- but he had ended things with me when Miley and him began dating.”

She is also jumping to the young Hollywood star’s defense against critics who suggest he and the daughter of country crooner Billy Ray Cyrus are too young to get hitched.

“If that person is your person and the world seems perfect with them in it, then yes, I do believe it can work,” she added.

“If that person treats you the way you deserve to be treated and you couldn’t ask for any more from them -- and you know the time is right to commit to one another -- then yes, I definitely think a successful marriage is possible at this age.”

Cyrus should not take Hemsworth for granted, Griffin warned: “He is an amazing person and Miley is lucky to have him!”

While she admitted it hurt when Hemsworth moved on so quickly after their relationship suddenly ended, when asked if she could say anything to the pair, Griffin offered a big congratulations.

“Nothing more or less than congratulations,” Griffin said, adding: "He would know I meant it."

“We were ready for different paths, America was his future and Australia was where I needed to be at the point of time in my life," she added. "But I’m his past and I've accepted that.”

    OMG check out this chick on instagram (laura_griffin).... she seems like a cool chick!! Sooooo over Liam!!!!

  • yo

    Miley can suck her own toes. Nuff said!

  • smh

    Being nice doesn't get much attention people like chaos, and drama not "i am happy for them". So people saying she wants her fame how in heck can she get fame by saying oh, I am a little shocked but, I am happy for him???

  • hahaha

    "Miley is amazing and her heart is pure gold" LMAO good one!!!

  • katie

    haha so obvious! miley is trashy in my opinion. idk how she ended up with a guy like liam when his ex gf is as mature and nice as can be. craziness

  • jen

    Yes, everyone should pair up at age 15 and just stay with that person forever. Because that's a reasonable expectation. ......bitter much?

  • d

    bro, clearly his ex is only saying this crap to get fame.. she was with him for six years, theyre both 22 and he never proposed to her, but yet him and the gorgeous Miley have been dating for only 3 years, she's 19 and theyre engaged. she is clearly jealous, and only wanting fame, so she made up some speech about how 'happy' she is for them. give me a break mate, lol.

  • vas

    i hate men that leave their girls for others

  • Mick

    WOW! Well it looks like someone else isn't so pretty on the inside! Who are you to say such a thing about a young girl who just so happened to be Liam's childhood sweetheart. Poor form by you! If she did actually say any of the above quotes, because I'm most certain there's some padding on this article, then big deal! She wishes them all the best. Everyone has moved on. The end.

  • yeahhhgirl

    so shockingly mature....i dont know if i would be handling that with as much grace and class as this girl! seems to me he traded in a great girl for.....well....miley cyrus. 'nuff said.

    Or they were underage. Duh.

  • d

    lol ok, listen here mate: his ex is ugly as all hell, she is probably pretending to be happy for them so that people will want to interview her so she can get her fifteen minutes of fame and get some cash in her pocket. she isnt pretty on the outside, nor on the inside. Miley is amazing, her heart is pure and gold, she puts in time to give back to the community by donating to charities. so MILEY is the real pretty one here; on the inside and outside. and beb, i can assure you they will walk down the aisle, and marry, and have beyond cute babies, and you my friend will be speechless. LAWLSKIES

  • ******

    Wow... this is not what i was expecting to read. Im impressed!

  • Rose

    Well he was with her or 6 years and they didnt get married in that time but he has been with Miley less than 3 and they are already engaged - hmmm either she is the one or he is a gold digger not sure at this point.

  • hamster23d

  • Obvious

    She just wants her fifteen minutes of fame. talking about this defanitly gave her those fifteen minutes.

  • FanGirlcom

    WTF!!! did you even read the interview? RETARD!

  • vettech15

    the Ex is just jealous because Miley is beautiful and successful young actress who stole Liam's heart while filming.. oh well.. boo hoo. She needs to realize there's other fish in the sea and she can't be latched on to Liam forever.. especially now that he's engaged to Miley. You can't control who you fall in love with.. I'm happy for Miley and Liam. They're a really adorable couple.

  • Katie

    I'm sorry, but this girl also came out a couple years ago to an aus magazine and said "Miley Cyrus stole my boyfriend". I think she did a few T.V interviews too. It's seriously ridiculous. At least in this interview she portrayed the two nicely.

  • Jasmin

    Assh..That odious She is still in love with Liam,just a fake,of course not, they want the best, but you'd better to Liam, Miley respect. OK

  • mimi1218

    I hope that his Ex girlfriend finds someone that treats her right... she sounds like such a nice young lady.

  • Cece

    true that! lol

  • jennyjazz

    For someone so young and having dated a guy for so long she sounds incredibly mature. What an awesome girl!

  • zon

    all i have to say to this interview and this little ex of Liam's is: LOL. JUST LOL. she be da jelly cos he didnt marry her

  • roro

    right on!! x

  • aichavillegas

    i hope she will not regret

  • jen

    What a nice girl, and a classy way to handle this. I'm probably too old to be a fan of Miley Cyrus, but I think she's a sweet, genuine girl who handles all her haters with grace and dignity.
