Miley Cyrus Engaged to Liam Hemsworth

Miley Cyrus Engaged to Liam HemsworthMiley Cyrus, the former Disney Channel child star whose growing pains have been played out in the glare of the world’s media, announced her engagement on Wednesday at the age of 19 to “Hunger Games” actor Liam Hemsworth.

Cyrus, whose “Hannah Montana” TV series made her a teen idol, said she was engaged to marry her Australian boyfriend Hemsworth, 22, after a three-year romance.

The news quickly became one of the world’s top trends on Twitter, bringing thousands of congratulations from fans, as well as questions over the wisdom of settling down so young.

Cyrus and Hemsworth have been dating on and off since meeting in 2009 on the set of film romance “The Last Song”.

“I’m so happy to be engaged and look forward to a life of happiness with Liam,” Cyrus told People magazine.

“Thank you for all the love today. I’m happy to share this news with you all. I feel like all my dreams are coming true,” the young star posted on Twitter.

Cyrus’s father, country singer Billy Ray Cyrus, who starred with her on “Hannah Montana”, said he was delighted.

“All I ever hoped for as a daddy was to see my kids reach their dreams. To find happiness, peace of mind, and someday know true love,” he told celebrity website HollywoodLife.com.

Hemsworth proposed on May 31 with a 3.5-carat diamond ring, according to People magazine. No wedding date was announced, but talk quickly turned to whether they were too young for such a commitment.

On Twitter, Billy Ray, 50, wrote : “All I ever hoped for as a Daddy was to see my kids reach their dreams. To find happiness … peace of mind … and someday know … true love.”

New Bourne Legacy 2012: Trailer is Out!

The Bourne Legacy 2012So, ‘The Bourne Ultimatum’ wasn’t the last one after all. With Matt Damon calling it quits on the series, Jeremy Renner takes the lead in this fourth film, with Edward Norton on baddie duty and Albert Finney and Joan Allen seem set to reprise their roles as Dr Albert Hirsch and Pam Landy respectively. Filming is taking place in New York, The Philippines and Canada – the plot’s carefully under wraps but you can bet that conspiracies and politics play a hefty part in the action-packed proceedings. Rachel Weisz is the likely love interest.

The Bourne Legacy is an upcoming American action spy film and the fourth installment in the eponymous Bourne film series, which is based on the Jason Bourne novels created by Robert Ludlum and Eric Van Lustbader. The story sets off after the conclusion of The Bourne Ultimatum with Tony Gilroy as the director, screenwriter of the first three films. Matt Damon and the character Jason Bourne are not in this film, but Damon has not ruled out starring in any future films as long as Paul Greengrass returns as director. The film is named after but is not based on The Bourne Legacy, a Bourne novel written by author Eric Van Lustbader.

The films open August 3, 2012! See you there! 🙂
