During an interview with Barbara Walters which will air this Wednesday, Miley Cyrus opened up for the first time about her split from Liam Hemsworth.
“I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year. … I don’t think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn’t change being engaged. It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years. But now, I just feel like I can actually be happy. I wait for those moments of silence, when I’m just at my house, by myself,” Cyrus reveals to Walters.
Miley adds, “I don’t ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can’t be yourself.”
The 21-year-old starlet and 23-year-old Hunger Games hunk dated for four years before announcing their engagement in 2012, and then confirmed their split in September.
