It's been two months since Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus ended their engagement, but the Hunger Games: Catching Fire star says he's doing okay.
"These days I feel like I'm more centered and grounded than I've ever been," he tells the Associated Press.
The actor, who met Cyrus in 2010 on the set of their film The Last Song, admits he's gone through a lot since he moved to Hollywood from his native Australia five years ago.

Jennifer Lawrence was as friendly as ever on CBS's Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday, but she wasn't particularly warm – until she was handed a big pink blanket to fight off the chill.
And soon, she was joined under the comforter by the host himself, who then joked that he wanted the audience to leave immediately.
"God, can it be any colder? … It feels like all the windows are open or something," the Oscar winner, 23, said at the beginning of the interview. "Do you ever get so cold that you start sweating? Is that just a gross problem I have?"

The conversation that parents have with their kids about the birds and the bees can be uncomfortable, but for Liam Hemsworth, it got taken to a whole new level of awkward – his mom, Leonie, was also his sex-ed teacher at school.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire star talked about his embarrassing experiences during an interview on Live with Kelly and Michael on Wednesday.
"I was in her class – I would come in for the first part of it and leave half way through," he admitted about his school days back home in Australia.

One is an Academy Award-winning actress and the other is a blue puppet, but Jennifer Lawrence and Cookie Monster have at least one thing in common – they both star in adaptations of The Hunger Games: Catching Fire this week!
While Lawrence will hit theaters strong-willed heroine Katniss Everdeen in big screen adaptation of the hit book on Friday, Sesame Street will air a segment parodying the popular book starring Cookie Monster as Cookieniss Evereat on Thursday.
In the PBS children's program version, Cookiniss must complete patterns and learn healthy eating habits to win "The Hungry Games" along side her companions Tick-Tock Lady, Finnicky, and Pita (a bread version of Josh Hutcherson's Peeta Mellark).

These days, Jennifer Lawrence is known to many as Katniss Everdeen, but years ago, she had another moniker entirely.
"My nickname was 'Nitro.' I was hyperactive, curious about everything," the Hunger Games: Catching Fire actress, 23, tells the French magazine Madame Figaro in its new cover story. "When my mother talks about my childhood, she always says there was a light within me. When I went to school, this light went out."
"We never knew what it was, a kind of social anxiety," reveals the Catching Fire star. "I went to see a shrink, nothing worked."
