Liam Hemsworth’s sister-in-law is sharing her thoughts on the split between the Australian actor, 29 and Miley Cyrus.
Hemsworth filed for divorce from his pop star wife Aug. 21, days after announcing their split. The couple called it quits less than a year into their marriage, which came 10 years after meeting on a movie set.
Elsa Pataky, the Spanish model and actress who is married to Liam’s brother Chris Hemsworth, told reporters that the actor deserves the best during an event for Women’s Secret lingerie in Spain.
“My brother-in-law, well… after a relationship that you’ve dedicated ten years to… he’s a little bit down, but he’s coping well. He’s a strong boy and he deserves the best. I think he deserves much better,” she said.
She also joked that her newly single brother-in-law is looking for a Spanish girlfriend.
Since their split, the stars have been following their own paths.
Cyrus made it clear that she was moving on by posting videos that showed her kissing singer Cody Simpson at a Los Angeles health food store.
The Simpson sighting came after her whirlwind romance with Kaitlynn Carter ended and Cyrus felt the need to address her new “dating” life.
“I know the public feels invested in my past relationship, because they saw it thru from the beginning,” Cyrus wrote. “But I’m grown now and make choices as an adult.”
In October, Hemsworth was photographed holding hands with a woman while strolling through New York City. Us Weekly and TMZ identify Hemsworth’s companion as Maddison Brown, 22, a model/actress who hails from Australia and portrays Kirby Anders on the CW’s “Dynasty.”
The outlets reported the twosome ate at the Italian restaurant Sant Ambroeus. TMZ published images of the outing. USA TODAY could not reach reps for Hemsworth and the “Dynasty” actress for comment.
