Miley and Liam ‘distant at premiere’

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth “barely talked” at a film premiere last night.

The couple are engaged, but have been plagued by split rumors for over a year. On Thursday they attended the premiere for Liam’s new movie Paranoia in Hollywood, where their frosty behavior fuelled speculation the relationship is on the rocks.

“Miley and Liam arrived together, and they took photos, but Miley went inside while Liam worked the carpet. He refused to answer any questions about Miley and seemed annoyed, like he didn’t want to be there. Liam’s family was there to support him, but they completely ignored Miley when she was there. They literally had their backs to her,” an eye witness reported to HolywoodLife.com. “Meanwhile, Miley and Liam barely talked or acknowledged each other. At one point, she gave him a light kiss, but it was weak. They went inside for the screening, sat next to each other, but turned away from each other and didn’t really talk to each other.”

The source added that Miley and Liam were even more distant at the after-party. It seems the young stars mingled with anybody but one another at the event.

“At the party, they acted like strangers. Even when they were standing right next to each other, they would never touch – hold hands, put their arms around each other, or anything like that – it was like they didn’t even know each other. Miley was bubbly and seemed to have fun, but Liam was not into it,” the insider observed. “Miley tried to engage Liam a bit – she even leaned in for a kiss, but he held back until it was awkward and then he gave her a little peck. Mostly, they just ignored each other. They showed zero intimacy. If you didn’t know who they were, you would assume they didn’t know each other. The only time Liam seemed happy was when he was talking to Harrison Ford.”

In June, Miley addressed rumors that she’d split with her actor beau. There was speculation the 20-year-old singer was romancing Justin Bieber after the pair were seen at a number of the same venues together.

Miley insisted she couldn’t be linked to 19-year-old Justin because she is still planning to get married.

“I’m engaged!” she laughed to Washington D.C. radio station Hot 99.5. “I’m engaged. That is impossible.”
