While filming The Last Song on Georgia's Tybee Island last year, Miley Cyrus couldn't help but fall for her costar Liam Hemsworth. (On the Oscars red carpet Sunday, Cyrus, 17, confirmed that she and Hemsworth, 19, are dating and that "maybe" she's in love.)
"He definitely showed chivalry," she tells Teen Vogue. "I remember him opening the door for the director and I was like, Wow."
"Working with Miley was a alot easier than I thought it was going to be," Hemsworth admits to the magazine. "From the first time we [met], It was like I had known her before."
His famous girlfriend adds, "I think we're both deeper than normal people–what they think and how they feel. He's very grateful for what he has, but he doesn't let it go to his head. I'm like that too…He's a really freaking good actor is what he is. And he's cute–so he's got that."
When she met Hemsworth, the Hannah Montana star had recently broken up with Justin Gaston — and was trying to grow up. Her time on The Last Song's Georgia set did just the trick.
"In L.A., I had so many security blankets, people helping me with everything," Cyrus explains. "I tried to book my friend a flight, and I didn't know how because I was used to someone doing it for me. I didn't want a babysitter anymore. I came to Tybee Island crying harder than I had ever cried in my life–and I left with the biggest smile on my face."
The star also makes note of her cameo in this spring's Sex and the City sequel — and answers the unavoidable "which SATC girl are you?" question.
Her answer: "I know everyone says Carrie, but I love Kim Cattrall, so I'll say Samantha. I want to be her because she's the hottest, she's funny, and she has attitude."
