Miley Cyrus ' engagement to Liam Hemsworth was confirmed last week, with the exact details of how they first got together are beginning to emerge. As has been well-documented, the couple met while working on the 2010 romance 'The Last Song', and the film's producer Adam Shankman says he wants a little credit for the matchmaking.
Speaking to People magazine, Shankman explained, "I sort of want a finder's fee for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth". The producer - who also directed the new Tom Cruise movie 'Rock of Ages' - said he cried when he first heard of the couple's engagement, before recalling, "I remember that first day of shooting when they first kissed and Miley walked by my sister [producer Jennifer Gibgot] after they shot the kissing scene.She goes, 'This is gonna work". The engagement has been criticized in some quarters - mainly because of the couple's ages - though Shankman insists the romance will last, saying, "Their fundamental core values are the same, but he's really mellow and she's really hyper. So it really works together", adding, "It's extraordinary, and I'm so happy. I'm scared at how beautiful those children are going to be".
Miley took to Twitter last week to thank fans for their support, saying, "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. have a great day". Hemsworth had reportedly presented her with a 3.5 carat diamond engagement ring, designed by jeweller to the stars Neil Lane.
