Miley Cyrus: 19 Years, 13 Major Mileystones

ALTOn Wednesday, Miley Cyrus confirmed she and her boyfriend of nearly three years, The Hunger Games star Liam Hemsworth, would be walking down the aisle on a not-yet determined date. It’s grown-up news that makes it difficult to believe Cyrus is just 19 years old — especially when you couple the announcement with Cyrus’ long presence in Hollywood.

Since she first appeared on television at the ripe age of eight, Cyrus cemented her status as one of Hollywood’s youngest rising stars, enjoying the successes (a 3-D movie splash!) and pitfalls (pole-dancing!) of many child actors before her. And, in celebration of her recent engagement, we take a look back at all of Miley’s most memorable moments.  

As for her future marriage to Hemsworth? (Miley tweeted fans Wednesday: “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.”) May the odds be ever in their favor. 


Miley and Liam Are Engaged!

News Editor Lindsey DiMattina started her career writing for a series of interior design magazines in South Florida, but moved to NYC on a whim. She dabbled in fashion PR, then took a job doing celebrity reporting. For three years, she broke news about Kim Kardashian, Mariah Carey, Snooki, Bachelor/Bachelorette winners, Teen Moms, and many more. In her spare time, you can find her rocking out to Sugarland or Lil Jon and walking her dog Bene Hendrix (named after the Jimi Hendrix). She never misses an episode of “The Borgias,” “Boardwalk Empire,” or “Game of Thrones."
