Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth's reunion has Nicholas Sparks talking about magic!
The prolific author sat down with ET's Katie Krause to talk about his 11th book-turned-movie, The Choice, but we had to ask him about the couple -- who met on-set of The Last Song in 2009 -- apparently reconciling after calling off their engagement in 2013.
"They're both really terrific people, right?" said Sparks. "It was great watching them. You know, Liam was unknown... This was his first role, and of course, Miley was a superstar by that time, just so talented in so many ways.. Really great to know that, you know, even after the breakup they remained friends."
Meanwhile, rekindled romance aside, The Choice -- which hits theaters on Feb. 5 -- stars Teresa Palmer, Benjamin Walker, and Tom Welling. Sparks tells ET that in contrast with some of his other work captured on the big screen, this movie feels "smaller" by design.
"This feels smaller, intimate and more ensemble. And yet, at the same time, almost because it's more intimate, it's so deeply personal, and it deals with a life that I think people really understand," the writer explained.
