In her first interview since getting engaged to Liam Hemsworth in June, Miley Cyrus says the actor’s at-home proposal was a “complete surprise.”
While the singer-actress had “no input” on her 3.5-carat Neil Lane engagement ring, Cyrus tells Marie Claire she more than approves of the sparkler Hemsworth picked.
“I just love that it’s old and has a story. And I’m happy because it doesn’t look like anything else I wear,” she explains.

Cyrus, who says she and The Hunger Games actor plan to have “a long engagement,” opined to the magazine that “Life is too short not to be with the person you want to be with.”
“I don’t really care about the wedding or the piece of paper as much as I do the promise we’ve made to each other,” Cyrus says.
The couple is living in the 8,000-square-foot home in the San Fernando Valley that was formerly occupied by Cyrus and her family, a set-up that has extra meaning for the starlet.

“It’s really weird [sleeping] in my parents’ room. Now it’s my room, and Liam is at my dad’s sink and I’m at my mom’s,” she tells the mag, adding, “It’s really strange, but also really cool.”
She continues, “The first time I ever met or hung out with Liam was here. When he first moved to America, he didn’t have any family here, so our family became his. This is where all our memories are being made.”
Cyrus’ full interview, in Marie Claire’s September issue, hits newsstands August 17.
