In an interview for the ABC News special, “Barbara Walters Presents: The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013,” Cyrus told the veteran journalist she thinks she got engaged too fast to the “Hunger Games” star because she didn’t want to be alone.
Miley admitted, “I was so scared of ever being alone, and I think, conquering that fear, this year, was actually bigger than any other transition that I had, this entire year… I don’t ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can’t be yourself.”
Cyrus, 21, and Hemsworth, 23, were together for four years and announced their engagement in 2012, but the couple confirmed in September that they had called it quits.
Now, the “Wrecking Ball” singer says she it feels good to be on her own. “I don’t think I realized what 19 truly is, and I got engaged at 19, and I definitely wouldn’t change being engaged. It was so fun wearing a fat rock for a few years. But now, I just feel like I can actually be happy. I wait for those moments of silence, when I’m just at my house, by myself.”
