Things are looking up for Miley Cyrus. In a recent revelation, it has come to the fore that her ex-boyfriend Liam Hemsworth still thinks that he has a strong connection with Cyrus.

"The Hunger Games" actor even suggested that though they have called it splits, Cyrus is still his best friend.

"Liam kept raving about how amazing she was, how much they clicked and understood everything about each other. He said they had a powerful connection and are still best friends. He also said bought a lot of furniture but he had to leave it behind when they broke up and he got his new place, which was furnished," Page Six quoted a source, who claims to have heard Hemsworth talking about his ex over dinner with friends at a restaurant in Portofino, Italy last week.

Hemsworth and Cyrus called it quits in September and it was understood that the couple did so because of Cyrus' immature antics.

"Liam always admired Miley's independence, but this was more like a rebellion, and it freaked him out. She has undergone a complete personality change. She's basically thugged out. He used to be obsessed with the way she would go wild. But it got more childish to him. He's growing up - and fast. At first they were yin and yang, balancing each other out. But they got more and more out of sync," a source close to Cyrus had revealed to Mirror at the time.

There was no confirmation regarding the reason for Cyrus and Hemsworth parting ways, but fans will be happy to know that the latter still considers the "Wrecking Ball" singer his friend.

Cyrus and Hemsworth met on the sets of their film "The Last Song". The couple were then spotted kissing in September 2009, when they made their red carpet debut for the "The Last Song" premiere.

In June 2012, Cyrus and Hemsworth announced their engagement but broke up within a year.

Meanwhile, it was also reported that Cyrus still misses Hemsworth and wants to get back with him.

"There's a part of her that wants to get back together," a source told US Magazine, [She's] been lonely. Miley was trying to get a rise out of Liam. She misses him."
