He is the Australian actor, one of three… where it took two brothers from the same family to step into the shoes of USA’s Brad Pitt of Thelma & Louise movie star template fame. Yet although Liam Hemsworth has earned $20 million, it took the young star a meeting with Miley Cyrus to cement his fame in the USA. Cyrus (like Britney Spears was too) is a Disney spun Queen of the USA’s youth audiences, who acted as mother bird to Liam, feeding him her fame with the paparazzi machine of the USA- until he found his own two feet.
It seems to have worked. Liam is the 20th most voted star of 2012. Congratulations man.

Miley Cyrus News: Miley Cyrus hits 10 million followers on Twitter.
According to Israeli producer Boregore, Miley Cyrus is doing way too much starring in the music video for his dubstep track, ‘Decisions.’ Boregore and Miley chant: “I wanna eat the whole cake. I’m not sharing. I’m not sharing. You shoulda learned how to bake,” whilst writhing around in chunks of frosting and cream. Jessie Andrews stars in the video with Smilers.
Last week – The Garner Affleck family took the kids to cake mixing class at Duffs Cake Mix in Hollywood. Photo: People Magazine. It’s all about cake in the USA then. (See Benjamin Franklin‘s thoughts on cake. A cake is like a nation. The edges of the cake are its coastlines). The USA is a sweet tooth obsessed people.
Crazy fun American kids! :)

His famous quote of old school Americna pithyness – ‘Takes more than that to kill a Bull Moose.” Photo – US Library of Congress.
And after a creepy stalker scare (they happen in LA – too), Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth are instagramming their matching ink. Taking a note from a Theodore Roosevelt citation, here’s what the sentiment says:
(Miley’s): “So that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who neither know victory nor defeat.”
(Liam’s): ”If he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.”
Unless youth reinterpret history for a new generation, we’d miss out on the greats, like Theo. A nice nod from Young Hollywood at special Presidential history.–News: AceShowBiz.

On Sunset & La Brea, all the beautiful, crazy Hollywood kids wanna do, is have some fun in the sun at Malibu by day. At night, we hit the strip, showing off the beach tan, at the clubs sippin on bub with Hermantown dj-spun fans. On the way home, a pit stop at In N' Out, for burger Cali smiles. Singing The Go Go's, We Got The Beat home grown tunes, in the convertable cues. Like sister Suzie K taught me on Day One, I still get mine, all animal styles huge, with my fresh pressed potato fries. A double double with cheese, to this day right, and extra ketchup please. In the morning, it's Starbucks on Melrose, for a total change of funky visual scene. Of course we were in our thirties, still being crazy Hollywood kids.

The most requested Australian citizen on the blog today is youngLiam Hemsworth. Crushable.Com writes:
Liam’s big brother Chris has been cast in a new movie, dubbed In the Heart of the Sea. Crushable notes:
“Before you get confused and think this is some kind of Titanic sequel about a man and a murderous whale competing to the find the heart of the ocean necklace that Rose (selfishly) drops into the Atlantic ocean at the end of the movie, it’s completely unrelated. Mostly because it’s called the In the Heart of the Sea and not Finding The Heart of the Ocean After Rose Literally Dropped it into the Ocean to Make Some Kind of Long-Winded Metaphor About Love.”
Bloggers, gotta love! Crushable continues with: “Our friends over at The Film Stage actually did some research into the film and discovered the following nuggets of information: The story, pulled from history, would give Hemsworth a heroic role aboard a “Nantucket whaling ship the Essex, which was stalked and ultimately destroyed by a sperm whale in 1820. Stranded thousands of miles from home, the crew struggled to survive; they were lost at sea for 90 days. Eight were rescued.” It’s very Ernest Shackleton in the Antarctic and New Zealand’s Craig Parker just did that similar story on Kiwi TV in much colder seas (Shackleton’s Captain). However – Chris Hemsworth is now Hollywood A-List with the Marvel Avengers movie doing do well – so let’s see what his take on an ocean survival tale of endurance will be.
Back to Liam:
Clearly, American media still prefers Liam to play Smiler’s suited up publicist on the red carpet, by not running comments about what the young star is up to himself. :)

Okay, about a week ago, teenager, Miley Cyrus (19) announced her engagement to actor, Liam Hemsworth (22).
The theme of her decision focused on ‘the wisdom of marrying young.’
Two are better than one, is a famous axiom of life. If one falls, one helps the other up.
I’m old and single. I think though, that there is a lot of merit in marrying young if you love someone and the respect is there, real and mutual.
Young people being happy – what a miracle that always is to see. :)
Creating strong friendships is upon young people today, in order to move forward in life. Often, no one understands a generation’s pressures more than that generation themselves.
Why strong bonds of friendship are important amongst youth and peer groups.
Again… full credit to Smilers and Liam for making their friendship bond stronger.
