Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus officially announced their engagement this week, and it’s had everyone talking.
One person who was taken aback by the news was Liam’s high school sweetheart. Her name is Laura Griffin, and she’s the same age as Liam, 22.
Liam and Laura dated for six years, and broke up while he was filming The Last Song…where he met Miley.
So what does Laura think about the engagement? “I’m not going to lie, I’m a little surprised,” she admitted. “Hearing your high school sweetheart – who is the same age as you – is getting married, is a shock.”
She added “Of course it hurts seeing someone I spent so many years with moving on….but at the same time if they are in love and are happy why not? I’m very happy for him.”
Even though Laura said she feels hurt, she had nothing but great things to say about the engaged couple: “He is an amazing person and Miley is lucky to have him!”
