After months of being photographed smooching and holding hands, Miley Cyrus has confirmed that she and her Last Song costar Liam Hemsworth are an item.

Asked on E!'s pre-Oscar special if she and the Aussie actor are dating, she said, "Yes."

Is she in love?

"Maybe," a coy Miley, 17, replied.

They didn't make their red carpet debut at the Oscars, Instead, Miley was accompanied by her mother, Tish, who showed off angel wing tattoos on her back.

When Ryan Seacrest joked that Tish is a bad influence, Miley chimed in: "She has nice choices in tattoos."

As for her frock, Miley said she wanted to look "Marilyn Monroe-esque."

So she went with a custom champagne colored silk and tulle strapless bustier bodice gown by Jenny Packham.

Who wears short shorts? Miley!

"I am a little bit nervous about the stairs!" Miley said of her dress. "Last time I was here, I was with my dad and he kept stepping on my dress. I am hoping that doesn't happen again!"
