Miley and Liam grew into romance
Miley Cyrus has revealed she and boyfriend Liam Hemsworth "grew" into their romance.
The couple met as they filmed The Last Song in Tybee Island, off the US coast of Georgia, but it took time for the feelings to grow.
"We had been filming for a couple of weeks and I think the more you hang out, the more you get to know each other - we kind of grew into it," she said.
Miley added they didn't become a couple officially until the film - in which their characters are in a relationship - was finished.
"We weren't 100 per cent a couple until the end of the film. We were hanging out and I guess we were kind of dating but there wasn't ever a moment where we thought, 'Yeah, we're together'," she explained.
While she won't say the L-word, Miley - who previously dated Nick Jonas and Justin Gaston - is happy to gush about the Australian-born actor.
"I got really lucky working with someone I enjoy being around. I'm super blessed to have had amazing people in my life," she said. "I think the best part is just hanging out with a friend and that's what him and I are - it's a real friendship. We've always been kind of what we are now."
:: The Last Song will be released on April 30.
