Miley Cyrus Reveals How She Moved On From Liam Hemsworth Breakup in ELLE May 2014

She ended her engagement with fellow star Liam Hemsworth last year, and now Miley Cyrus opens up about moving on in the May 2014 issue of ELLE magazine.

While rocking lingerie for the Michael Thompson-shot spread, the 21-year-old reveals that she is totally fine since her split with the "Hunger Games" star.

“When I went through a really intense breakup—you know, I was engaged—and when I was with him or when I was on Disney, the thing that gave me the most anxiety was not knowing what to do with myself when Disney wasn’t there to carry me anymore or if I didn’t have him," Miley explained.

"And now I’m free of both of those things, and I’m fine. Like, I lay in bed at night by myself and I’m totally okay, and that’s so much stronger than the person three years ago, who would have thought they would have died if they didn’t have a boyfriend.”
