Liam Hemsworth 'Much Happier' Post Breakup

By JACKIE WILLIS

Liam Hemsworth says he's much happier these days following his breakup from fiance Miley Cyrus, and he credits this to his Hunger Games: Catching Fire co-star Jennifer Lawrence.

"For a few years I went down a path where I forgot to be in the moment and enjoy the moment," the 23-year-old actor told The Associated Press (via People). "But being around someone like Jen [Lawrence], who is so honest and laughs all day long, I am forced to be in the right now. I'm much happier."

Hemsworth added, "These days I feel like I'm more centered and grounded than I've ever been."

As for the cheating allegations that came shortly after his split from Cyrus, 20, the actor said, "What I always keep in mind is that I know what the truth is and that's all that matters. I know I'm a good person."

So how does this newly single Aussie actor keep up this new way of living? "I read a lot of Zen books," he admitted. "And I grew up surfing, so that has always been my escape."

Who do you think Hemsworth should date next?
