(LOS ANGELES) — Miley Cyrus’ fiancé Liam Hemsworth is Australian, so it’s no surprise that in general, she has a thing for men from the Land Down Under.
Speaking with People magazine at the Australians in Film awards in California this week, Cyrus said, “[Australians are] way hotter. There’s no competition.”
She reasoned, “I think there’s a masculinity about [Australian guys] that is probably like growing up in the South, like what I did. They are a little bit more respectful, I suppose.”
According to E! Online, Hemsworth won an award for his performance in The Hunger Games, and during his acceptance speech he said he and Miley are married. But he quickly clarified, “Well, not married yet.”
