Liam Hemsworth was snapped on the set of his latest movie, Empire State, in New Orleans on Tuesday (June 12). The actor was dressed as a policeman for his role in the action-heist flick.
The Hunger Games star has been in the news a lot over the past few days, but not for his acting career – he proposed to girlfriend Miley Cyrus last week with a 3.5 carat diamond ring.
Apparently the young couple – Liam is 22 and Miley is only 19 – had to convince Miley’s dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, that they were mature enough to get married.
“Billy Ray has always been super-protective of Miley,” said a friend close to the Cyrus family. “While he’s become very fond of Liam — as has the entire family — Billy Ray was just worried about Miley still being a teenager.
“On top of that, there’s the whole entertainment world thing, where so many young stars get married young, and then it falls apart fairly quickly,” the source added. “He obviously didn’t want that to happen to his Miley.”
