“Extra” correspondent Ben Lyons caught up with Miley Cyrus at the L.A. premiere of “The Hunger Games.” Miley was there to cheer on her boyfriend, “Games” star Liam Hemsworth.
“I’m a proud girlfriend; Liam’s amazing in this,” gushed Miley. “I think the characters… they all have so much depth. It’s not a typical love triangle story and it’s also really sad. I think the minute you start watching the movie you feel exactly where you are at that time.”
Did Liam introduce her to the books? “Actually, my little sister introduced me,” said Cyrus. “Liam started working on it and my sister was so excited that Liam was going to be in the movie. It’s rare that you find a movie as good as the books, and I think this is going to live up to it and what everyone is so excited about.”
Miley did admit she also played a prank on Hemsworth for the upcoming new season of MTV’s “Punk’d.” “I did. I can’t tell you too much about it — but I did prank him.” Something about naked people in her car? “Yeah. Liam almost beat my window out. It was very scary, I didn’t realize.”
Cyrus also talked about her upcoming indie comedy “LOL,” co-starring Demi Moore. “It’s a small indie film that I wanted to make because I loved the script and I love the director, Lisa Azuelos. That’s really why I took this on. I’m really excited for people to see it.”
But Miley said there isn’t a chance she’ll appear in any “Hunger Games” sequels with her honey, Liam. “No, no, no. That’s separate from my bill. That’s how we met and that’s the way it stays. We keep it very separate.”
Miley Cyrus bared her belly in a lacy, beaded bustier and matching organza maxi skirt designed by Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci to the H’wood premiere of The Hunger Games last night.
The 19-year-old actress-singer-whatever was on the arm of long time BF, Australian actor Liam Hemsworth, one of the stars of the movie. Cyrus kept it simple and understated—sort of an “I’m with the band” look—with short, golden, highlighted waves that complemented her cazh, gypsy-chic style.
But she wasn’t the only one…
Gwyneth Paltrow had more of a Mata Hari-“I’m the star in the room” vibe at the 2011 Emmy Awards when she wore a sleek and über-elegant black lace, two-piece, see-through ensemble, also designed by Peter Dundas at Emilio Pucci.
The 39-year-old actress bared her buff middle between a cropped short-sleeved top with unfinished trim and elaborately detailed slim, full-length skirt.
But what we want to know is, which lacy midriff-baring, A-list-celeb look gets your vote?

‘I have to try and keep my cool,’ the singer/songwriter told MTV News about her excitement over boyfriend Liam Hemsworth’s new movie.
Katniss Everdeen might be the girl who set Gale Hawthorne’s heart ablaze, but the man who plays the heroine’s fellow District 12 denizen — Australian actor Liam Hemsworth — has a love life sparked by a different flame.
We’re talking about none other than Hemsworth’s longtime girlfriend Miley Cyrus, of course, who hit the “Hunger Games” world premiere in Los Angeles on Monday (March 12) in full force to support her boyfriend’s work on the film. Though Miley herself isn’t a well-studied “Hunger Games” fan, she has some good reasons to have stayed away from the source material until the big premiere.
“I’ve only read through them with Liam when he was working on [the movie],” Cyrus told MTV News about her familiarity with the “Hunger Games” books. “I tried to keep it pretty separate and not turn myself into too much of a fan. But it’s going to be hard probably; after watching this film, I’m going to be dying to see the next two. But I have to try and keep my cool!”
But even without having read the “Hunger Games,” Cyrus can’t entirely escape the fanfare surrounding the Gary Ross-directed movie. Even she has a specific scene she can’t wait to see — and surprisingly, it has absolutely nothing to do with Liam.
“There’s this scene with [lead actress Jennifer Lawrence] when she comes out in this amazing dress when they present her; that’s the one thing I know,” said Cyrus, referring to Katniss’ famous “girl on fire” appearance. “I know [the whole movie] is not about that, but I can’t wait to see that part! I’m dying over it already. I know that’s the silliest girl thing and nobody is probably looking forward to that dress except me.”
Cyrus is definitely not the only person looking forward to the girl on fire, but despite her budding fandom, don’t expect the “Hannah Montana” star to catch fire herself anytime soon. When asked, Cyrus said there’s very little chance that fans will see her in “Catching Fire” or “Mockingjay,” the planned follow-ups to this year’s “Hunger Games.”
“I don’t think so,” she answered when asked about whether or not she’d appear in a sequel. “I don’t think so!”
Why all the Miley Cyrus hate out there?
Talk to anyone who’s worked with the starlet and they’ll tell you…
She’s not the irresponsible wild child that so many want to believe.
“I have to say I had a couple of great conversations with her,” Gina Gershon, who worked with Cyrus in the upcoming indie comedy LOL, told me the other day at South by Southwest. “I felt she was grounded and smart and very down to earth…She has a good head on her shoulders. So she’s out having a good time. How old is she?”
LOL, about a girl navigating high school, costars Twilight’s Ashley Greene and Demi Moore.
While LOL may be teen-friendly, Gershon’s SXSW flick, Killer Joe, is something quite different. The black comedy, also starring Matthew McConaughey and Emile Hirsch, was slapped with an NC-17 rating last month. They’re appealing to try to get an R in time for its summer release.
“I hope it doesn’t have an NC-17 because I really want people to see it,” Gershon said. “People just need to know it’s a very intense R. It’s a very intense, emotional and visceral film.”
Australian hunk Liam Hemsworth admits that having his brother Chris Hemsworth and girlfriend Miley Cyrus does help when it comes to navigating Hollywood. But he is quick to point out that this does not make it easier to get roles.
“It’s definitely nice to have people around me like [my brother] and my girlfriend, who have experienced it before,” said Liam on an interview for Flaunt magazine.
“To ask them questions, it definitely makes it easier in that sense. It doesn’t make it any easier getting roles. It’s just me in the room when I’m meeting directors and reading with directors.”
The younger Hemsworth follows the lead of his brother Chris, who gained international popularity playing the Norse god/superhero “Thor.”
Liam first gained international exposure after starring opposite Miley Cyrus in the romantic movie the “The Last Song”. Prior to his movie with Cyrus, Liam appeared in the hit Australian soap opera, “Neighbours” as Josh Taylor.
But having a brother and a girlfriend who are famous in their own right does not guarantee a steady flow of work for Liam. In fact, he was recently cut out of the second installment of “The Expendables”.
“I got a call from [Sylvester] Stallone… It was a really surreal moment. Two weeks later, we found out that the script got rewritten.”
But it’s not all bad news for the 22-year-old actor. He will be next seen in the film adapation of “The Hunger Games” as Gale Hawthorne who appears in three novels in the series. Liam will also play Ali Baba in “Arabian Nights,” set for release in 2014.
‘The Hunger Games’ star opens up about taking care of his girl when she is attacked by the media and fans — he’s the most supportive boyfriend ever!
Liam Hemsworth is madly in love with Miley Cyrus, and now he’s talking about how he takes care of her when she faces her countless critics!
Liam, 22, took to syndicated radio program The Bert Show and ended up speaking about Miley, 19, and how he helps her dodge irate fans.
“We have a pretty supportive relationship,” he said. “We’re always supportive of each other’s careers and we both know how we feel about each other. We have a great support system.”
He also spoke about how he got involved with Miley initially.
“We met on The Last Song and it’s still going,” he said. “I think going into it, it wasn’t the goal for that to happen but we just got closer and closer through the shoot and it just kind of happened.”
