In the latest edition of her TikTok series for “Used To Be Young”, the singer recalls casting her now ex-husband as her romantic interest in The Last Song, which sparked their 10 year-long relationship between the stars in real life.
“In 2008, I needed to do another feature film for Disney and I didn’t want it to be a part of Hannah Montana. Once we had written the screenplay, it was time to audition all the guys who would play Will, my boyfriend in the movie,” she said of the film, which came out in 2010. “We had gotten it down from thousands to the final three, and Liam was a part of that final three.”
“I think one of the elements that made that movie feel so special was it was watching two very young people fall in love with each other, which was happening in real time and in real life, so the chemistry was undeniable,” Cyrus continued. “That was the beginning of a long 10-year relationship.”

“That house had so much magic to it,” she said. “It ended up really changing my life.”
Cyrus has discussed a wide variety of topics in her series from singing with Beyonce and Rihanna to even her performance on the 2009 Teen Choice Awards with “Party in the U.S.A.”
“I had cut ‘Party in the U.S.A’ and I was doing my first performance for the Teen Choice Awards,” Cyrus recalled. “My mom was like, ‘I think it’d be really cool if she was in the trailer park ’cause that’s where we really do come from.'”
“So apparently me dancing on an ice cream cart with a stripper pole, but it wasn’t a stripper pole, it was actually just for stability,” she insisted. “I had a heel on! Guys, what did you want from me? Was I really going to do my performance without dancing on an ice cream cart?”
