The ‘Last Song’ actress – who is engaged to Australian actor Liam Hemsworth – thinks men from the country are particularly masculine and echo her own upbringing in Nashville, Tennessee.
Miley also gushed about Liam’s willingness to work hard, praising him for being “passionate” about his craft like her father Billy Ray Cyrus is about music.
She added to People.com: “My dad has always been a really hard worker, so I like when men work hard. I think it’s important and I always work really hard, so it’s good to have someone who is passionate about what they do, and wants to be great at what they do.”
A source said: “They are both mature and ready for this. Miley is 19 going on 40. Right now they are enjoying being engaged. There is no rush."
