A rep for Cyrus did not immediately respond to THR's requests for comment.

The pair formed a bond as co-stars in 2009's The Last Song. (On June 1, the day after Hemsworth popped the question, Cyrus tweeted: "heaven is a place on earth.")

Cyrus is working on her forthcoming album; Hemsworth has been shooting the crime drama Empire State in New Orleans, after which he will join Harrison Ford and Gary Oldman to film the thriller Paranoia, after which he jump back into Hunger Games mode to shoot the sequel alongside Jennifer Lawrence.
