Will Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth get back together? We doubt it.
Not based on what Miley says in an interview with Barbara Walters, which will air Wednesday on ABC as part of that reporter’s 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013 special.
In the following snippet from that Q&A, Cyrus admits she moved too quickly with the Australian hunk and she hung on for too long… for all the wrong reasons.
"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," says the 21-year old.
Miley and Liam met in 2009 and announced their engagement three years later.
"I don’t ever want to have to need someone again, where you feel like, without them, you can’t be yourself," Miley added, exerting her independence.
Cyrus, who has shot down talk that she’s now dating French Montana, does say, however, that she has no regrets.
I definitely wouldn’t change being engaged," she tells Walters.
"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."
Miley also says she’s open to getting married… someday.
Barbara Walters Presents The 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013 airs on ABC this Wednesday, December 18 at 9:30 p.m. EST.
