Liam Hemsworth: 'Miley split needed to happen'

Liam Hemsworth says his split from Miley Cyrus "needed to happen".

The pair broke off their engagement in 2013 after three years of dating before rekindling their relationship a few months ago and while Liam couldn't be happier now, he thinks the break-up was the right decision at the time.

He told GQ Australia: "Of course it was hard, man. But at the time we were going in different directions and it's just what needed to happen. We were both super young and it was a good decision at the time - we both needed that."

And speaking about their relationship now, he added: "People will figure it out, they already have... They're not dumb.

"I guess when I feel something, then I just feel it and I go for it. I make my decisions about what's going to make me happy, what I think is right and what I want to do - and I don't worry too much outside of that."

Liam, 26, also revealed that he rarely goes out anymore, preferring to "get loose" at home after an incident in 2012 when a man threw rocks at him outside a bar and Liam hit him, with the entire incident captured on video.

He said: "It was silly, drunk stuff and it's kind of why I don't go out anymore, I prefer to get real loose in my own house and have people come to me. When I'm drunk, like anyone, I don't think straight or make the best decisions. You don't see it in the video, but that guy tackled me pretty good... Not that I condone fighting, of course, um, do it in a cage, like in the UFC."
