Report: Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth 'Are Done'

JB Lacroix/WireImage(NEW YORK) -- After days of denial, there's new evidence that Miley Cyrus and her Hunger Games star fiancee Liam Hemsworth have indeed split up.

Hemsworth has been spotted without Cyrus in his native Australia because, the New York Post says, he needed to "get away from Los Angeles" and spend time with family.

A source tells the paper the two stars "are done; it's over." 

The spy says, "She likes to party really hard and can be pretty wild.  It became a problem for him."

The couple began dating almost three years ago after they met as co-stars in the movie The Last Song.

Hemsworth popped the question to Cyrus last May, however she was spotted last week without the 3.5-carat diamond ring he gave her, People reported.

Life & Style reported on March 6 that Hemsworth was spotted making out at a pre-Oscars party with a "wasted" Mad Men star January Jones.  A source told the gossip magazine, "if the cheating claims are true, their engagement's over."

That same day, Cyrus tweeted, "I am so sick of La. And sick of the lies that come with it. I didn’t call off my wedding. Taking a break from social media. #draining.”

Miley Cyrus Opens Up About Wedding Plans

Jon Kopaloff/FilmMagic(LOS ANGELES) -- Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth may be two of the hottest stars in Hollywood right now, but their wedding will likely be low-key.

“When the wedding does happen, it’s probably going to be a small, intimate one,” Cyrus’ mother, Tish Cyrus, said in an interview with People magazine. The interview is included in the issue that hit newsstands Friday.

Cyrus, 20, and her mother are on the hunt for the perfect wedding dress, and earlier this month they attended Marchesa’s Fall 2013 fashion show to look at bridal gowns.

“They make the most amazing dresses. They are definitely one of our options,” Cyrus said, speaking of the designer.

Cyrus also said she and Hemsworth, 23, haven’t talked specifics about their wedding plans. She said her fiancé is “pretty laid-back about everything."

“It’s the best thing ever,” Cyrus said. “To know that I found the person I want to be with forever is pretty awesome. He’s everything I want.”

Hemsworth and Cyrus met in 2009 while co-starring in The Last Song, a film about two teens who fall in love.

Cyrus became famous playing the Disney Channel character Hannah Montana, and Hemsworth starred in the hit film The Hunger Games.

Miley Cyrus Denies She's Too Young to Wed

JB Lacroix/WireImage(LOS ANGELES) -- Miley Cyrus is just 19, but she's engaged to Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, her 22-year-old Australian fiance.  And the star says that anyone who criticizes the couple for rushing into marriage at too young an age doesn't know what they're talking about.

In a behind-the-scenes video Cyrus shot for Marie Claire magazine while posing for the publication's September cover, the singer and actress says, "We’ve been together a long time, and I just know this is what I want for my life." 

She adds, "A lot of people, I think, say, 'I can’t believe they’re getting married, they’re so young,' but life is too short to not spend every minute with the person with makes you happiest."

Cyrus tells the magazine that when Hemsworth proposed, it was "a complete surprise" and says that no one, not even her parents, knew that it was coming.  Cyrus also says she had "no input" on her 3.5-carat yellow-gold engagement ring, but she loves it. 

"I usually wear rose gold," she says, "and I'm happy because it doesn't look like anything else I wear."

Miley Cyrus: Australian Guys Are Hot

Kevin Mazur/WireImage via ABC(LOS ANGELES) -- Miley Cyrus' fiancé Liam Hemsworth is Australian, so it's no surprise that in general, she has a thing for men from the Land Down Under.

Speaking with People magazine at the Australians in Film awards in California this week, Cyrus said, "[Australians are] way hotter.  There's no competition."

She reasoned, "I think there's a masculinity about [Australian guys] that is probably like growing up in the South, like what I did. They are a little bit more respectful, I suppose."  

According to E! Online, Hemsworth won an award for his performance in The Hunger Games, and during his acceptance speech he said he and Miley are married.  But he quickly clarified, "Well, not married yet."

Movie Review: "The Hunger Games"

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- Dystopian.  Post apocalyptic.  Long after Justin Bieber is gone.   Welcome to the world of The Hunger Games.

Based on the best-selling young adult book series, our first glimpse into this world is a television interview -- Stanley Tucci’s ostentatious, blue-haired Caesar Flickerman interviewing head Gamemaker Seneca Crane on a set that resembles American Idol's.  Appropriate, since Flickerman would be the result if Ryan Seacrest fathered a child with Phyllis Diller. More about him later.

Then the fun begins.

What was once the United States of America is now the country of Panem, a totalitarian regime comprised of 12 Districts under the sadistic rule of the Capitol.  Its iron-fisted grip around its citizens' necks tightens once a year during the dreaded Hunger Games: a tournament to the death between 24 teens, one boy and one girl from each district.  The unwilling participants are called tributes, as in a tribute to the Capitol as a reminder of how it subjugated the districts all those years ago.  The Hunger Games are big television: like the Super Bowl, only with lots of death, better technology and no commercials.  Even the Reaping, when the teens are drafted into The Hunger Games, is shown across the nation.

Enter our hero, Katniss Everdeen, played by Jennifer Lawrence.  Katniss is a hunter who sneaks beyond the electric fence surrounding abject poverty of her District 12 home to provide for her mother and sister.  Beyond that fence, she meets up with her handsome friend Gale (Liam Hemsworth) and also retrieves the bow and arrows she hides in a tree.  Unlike the heroine in that other teen literary sensation, Katniss will not fall in love with a vampire or flirt with a werewolf; she has far less fantastical problems in this gritty reality.  Every second she lives is the result of a life and death decision -- including her heroic decision to volunteer for the games in the place of her little sister Prim when the latter's name is called at the Reaping.

So, what about the actual Hunger Games?   In a word: spectacular.  Under Gary Ross’ direction, the games seem like an actual annual event he's filmed before.  You don't need 3D and those pesky glasses to feel right in the middle of 2D action that's so realistic, you might pull a hamstring just watching it.   Visually, the futuristic control room where Seneca Crane and his team manipulate the arena, both challenging and attempting to kill the tributes, is reminiscent of the one in The Truman Show, only 3000 times cooler.

The supporting cast is terrific as well.  Josh Hutcherson plays fellow tribute and potential love interest Peeta Mellark with subtlety and quiet confidence.  Also great is rock star Lenny Kravitz in his much buzzed-about role as Cinna, Katniss' stylist and sounding board.  Elizabeth Banks plays the outlandish Effie Trinket with relish, Woody Harrelson nails his role as the alcoholic former Hunger Games winner Haymitch Abernathy, and Stanley Tucci brings so much fun to Caesar Flickerman, he could have his own movie or TV show -- heck, his own breakfast cereal!  Flicker Flakes, anyone?  

It’s not all good, though. Donald Sutherland’s dictatorial President Snow shows a tremendous amount of restraint: too much, as he never seems quite as scary as he should be. That lack of fear that blunts the emotional impact of the film's ending, but doesn’t negate at least two other scenes that'll have you either cheering or will bring you to tears.

Ultimately, though, The Hunger Games doesn’t work without Jennifer Lawrence.  This future Oscar winner -- a bold statement, yes, though not for this role -- is the embodiment of Katniss Everdeen, and movie audiences will be smitten.  

As far as comparing The Hunger Games books to The Hunger Games, the film?  I’m now a fan of both.

Four out of five stars.
