Is Miley Cyrus living on 500 calories a day & working out 3 hours a day?

These are some new photos of Miley Cyrus and her fiancé (y’all!) Liam Hemsworth at last night’s LA event, “Australians In Film Awards & Benefit Dinner at InterContinental Hotel”. Honestly, Miley and Liam were the two biggest stars at the event. And I have to admit… they looked really cute together. I loathe Miley’s Totally ‘80s dress (by Zimmerman), but I like her hair and her makeup, and I do think she’s trying to look more mature and “classy” now that she’s engaged. She just wants to show off her hot Pilates body too. There are better ways, Miley. As for Liam… is it okay if I think he has a better face than his big brother Chris? Chris has the face of a meathead caveman. Liam is sort of caveman-esque too, but there’s more “pretty” happening there.

In other Liam and Miley news, the tabloids have some assorted stories this week. According to Star, Liam is “worried” about Miley’s dramatically shrinking figure and Liam is “threatening” to call off the wedding if she doesn’t gain some weight back. A source tells Star (via HL), “The ridiculous thing is, she started this regimen because she was worried Liam would fall for his [Hunger Games] co-star Jennifer Lawrence. She decided that the only way to keep him was to get the best body of her life.” Allegedly, Miley is now living on 500 calories a day and she works out for up to three hours a day. Hm. I think Miley is on that weird diet, but I think she’s probably eating regularly, and she’s getting more than 500 calories a day. But I do think she’s working out A LOT.

Also, there’s a story about Miley wanting to take a break from Hollywood and the music industry, allegedly. A “friend of Miley” told HL, “Miley is on a break from show business… Miley is done! She is tired and wants to live a normal life. She feels like she never had a childhood and wants to just be normal right now and spend time with her fiancé. She is kind of rebelling right now. Everyone wants her to do an album and she’s like ‘Whatever!’ She is just tired and exhausted and wants a normal life. Can you blame her?!” While I don’t and wouldn’t blame her if she felt this way (in fact, I’m pretty jealous of her life), Miley is totally working on a new album. She’s focused on music, and… I don’t know how it’s going to work out.

    I like Miley’s hair and make-up, but that dress has got to go. It’s her fiancee’s night but she wore the dress to make sure she got plenty of attention. Not that I blame her, she worked hard for her body. But I also don’t believe for one second that Miley has any plans to go away and live a normal life. If she did, she wouldn’t be marrying an up and coming actor or trying to hog his spotlight..

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      I thought the same thing when I saw the pics like “Oh she looks so pretty!” Then “ugh, WTF is she wearing??”
      I think she’s marrying Liam because she loves him but yeah, if she was SO gung-ho on staying out of the spotlight then marrying an actor that’s really hot right now probably isn’t the best way to go.

      • only1shmoo says:

        I’m with you girls. If she really wanted a more “normal” and down-to-earth lifestyle, she wouldn’t be dressing so provocatively on a regular basis, nor would she be, ahem, forgetting her underwear and bra as often as she has.

        If she wants everyone to notice the body she’s worked so hard for, that’s fine, but I don’t think she should be pretending that she doesn’t actually seek to get all this attention.

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        Right, and if she wants to show off her body, fine, I don’t begrudge her but there are form-fitting dresses that are CLASSY. Dresses with shapes cut out are just bad imo. Very Jersey Shore and low-class to me.

  2. brin says:

    I love her hair like that, I can’t stand when she wears the top knot, she looks like a hillbilly!

    • Amelia says:

      Oh God, the pineapple…. I see that around town all the time. If I never have to see that hairstyle again, it’ll be too soon.
      I most definitely do not think she’s living on 500cals a day though. Speaking from experience, if she was, she would not look nearly as energetic and happy as she does and her skin would not look anywhere near as healthy. I know make up can do wonders, but there is a limit.
      I’ll bet a virtual cookie that it’s high protein/low carb combined with a lot of Pilates.
      The dress is … curious. Is it even a dress? It looks like a skirt and bra with a sheer cover-up.

    • corny says:

      Hillbillies get a bad rep when it comes to Miley, I wish she would go away and take that horrid creation with her, shoes included.

    • PixieCherry says:

      i Soooooooo Agree ~_~ cheap way to say ” im healthy & i work out “

  3. jano1981 says:

    Looking at these pictures all that really crossed my mind was it is nice to see a non platinum blond also without extensions. I guess I’m just sick of looking at super long “blonde” hair. Nice change.

  4. dorothy says:

    No matter how much you work out, diet, dress up it’s all for nothing if you wear an open side bood t-shirt out in public. You look like a truck stop waitress.

  5. PAgirl says:

    She still looks healthy. I’m not a Miley fan by any stretch, so my urge to hate on her is purely jealousy, ha. And I gotta admit.. she looks good. (but not the dress. the dress is heinous.)

    • Rhea says:

      Agreed. She still look healthy. But I hate her shoes more than the dress! :D

    • well... says:

      +1. I don’t know I think it’s kind of admirable that she’s willing to work so hard to maintain a good figure. I mean, personally think she’s an idiot but for everyone that doesn’t have a naturally “perfect” body she’s a good example that you can do it. Sidenote: don’t think she has a gluten allergy I think she jumped on the bandwagon to justify some weird deprivation diet but I doubt she’s eating 500 calories a day (probably restricted calorie but not to that point). Fairly sure she’ll have to quit the diet at some point if she wants to say healthy but I don’t think it’s as bad as they’re trying to make it seem.

  6. Nina says:

    They are still children, none of their facial features have matured. Why don’t we all call this what it is? Hot sex between two teenagers. Not sure why they had to get engaged, but there’s no questions that if they actually go through with the wedding it will be the first of several for both of them. Well, you know what they say… vote early, vote often!

    • Zoid says:

      Hey, ageism works both ways you know. Yes, they are both very young and yes it’s possible it’s a starter marriage, but just because they are young it doesn’t guarantee a break up. And no, they definitely aren’t children. They’re legal adults now. They support themselves. It’s ok if they want to get married, their youth doesn’t mean they love each other less.

    • Martha says:

      I couldn’t figure out why when I looked at Miley I didn’t find her “sexy” or really even that pretty (because her features seem fine)–but your comment nails it: she still has a child’s face.

  7. Alexa says:

    She looks very healthy like she works out not like she starves. I used to think she was a redneck but with her support for gay rights, she’s won me over!

  8. Jackson says:

    I hate myself for saying this, but whatever she is doing is working. And no, she does not look like she is getting 500 cals a day. But yeah, a lot of working out. She has a very lean, healthy look and a nice glow about her. Five hundred cals a day doesn’t give you that look.

  9. says:

    Her and Anne Hathaway must be on the same 500 calorie diet because I seriously don’t see the worrisome, too-skinny look everyone is talking about.

    Perhaps I’ve been brainwashed by the media’s propaganda of the ideal female body should look like, but I think Miley looks awesome.

  10. lucy2 says:

    No way, if she were doing that, she’d look terrible. I think she looks very healthy right now, but does not need to lose anymore.
    That dress is awful.

  11. bea says:

    I sincerely doubt she’s living on 500 calories a day – at her age the exercise alone would keep her weight down. I think she looks great – the weight loss gives her some cheekbones and makes her look less chipmunk-ish. She doesn’t look unhealthy at all to me.

    • vanessa says:

      I agree, at that age I ate whatever I wanted and didn’t do a bit of exercise and still looked that slim. She is nice and toned and looks like she is working out, but I doubt she is starving. She looks great.

      • Katija says:

        When I was a sophomore in college, during one summer, I played volleyball every night and ran an hour everyday. Legit not trying to lose weight or shape up… I just loved it. I also lived on deep-fried everything and my mother told me I looked like I was an Auschwitz prisoner.

        Le sigh… to be 19 again. My point is – I think she works out a ton and eats a ton of gluten-free food. This girl is at the peak of good health… not sick.

  12. Zorbitor says:

    take a break while you can – look what they did to Britney

  13. Jenna says:

    Dislike the dress; hair and make-up are good though.

    As for Liam, I’m not digging the longer/darker hair. =/

  14. Kathryn says:

    I personally think she looks great…and healthy (a bit on the thin side, but hey, she is working for it and it fits her frame) but she still seems full of life. I went through a phase a couple years ago where I was living on about 800 calories a day or less, couldn’t work out (because I had no energy to do anything but go to school and come home and sleep by 8 pm because I was fully drained) and was the most dull and shell of my outgoing self. I hope she doesn’t get too carried away…but she is a beautiful girl and has definitely grown on me.

    Very happy for her and her life with Liam!! :-) All the best to her.

  15. Chatcat says:

    I have to say I like the dress. I think it’s the perfect LBD for a very fit 19 year old, I mean she is 19 and this is one of the best looks she has offered up on or off the red carpet.

    Although I like her hair style and most of her makeup I do believe she has two many colors/tones in her hair and she is wearing too much mascara.

    They do make a good looking young couple.

    PS. I am sure by the end of the day there will be pic’s of her in her usual hillbilly grunge so I am giving Kudos while I can.

    • TheOriginalKitten says:

      Hey Chat!
      They look REALLY good together. I like them as a couple but I hope she knows what she’s getting into. So young to get married, especially to a man who’s star is rapidly rising.
      Anyway, you can tell they really love each other and young love is always sweet to me.

      • Chatcat says:

        Hi Kit…oh I don’t think they should get married so young either for the reasons you mentioned and a host of others. Remember, I got married at 21 and although I have been married for almost 28 years to do what it takes to make it sustainable can be daunting.

        Your so right about young love. I mean, how can you not get a kick out of her making google eyes at him and him with that casual arm around her waist…like she just belongs there.

        I do disagree with you on the dress though, I know you don’t like it but for some reason I do? I think it is fun and sassy yet because it’s a LBD it keeps it from not being trashy, despite the cut out. Weird of me maybe?

      • TheOriginalKitten says:

        28 years is amazing, Chat! Congrats. My parents are going on 45 years. I love how you’re honest about how challenging it can be at times. My mom has always made it clear that marriage is not a walk in the park and it’s a lot of hills and valleys but at the same time, I’m so grateful to have them as a model of happy marriage. It’s really solidified in my mind what I want.

        Yeah I’m just not sold on the dress..I want to see her in color, maybe green or fuschia. She’s blonde now-she needs to have fun with it!

    • Monkey Jim says:

      I know! I like it too! And I usually think she looks trashy, yet this somehow works and she looks great. I’ve also complimented Blake Lively today so something is clearly up – maybe its a full moon?

  16. Mia 4S says:

    LOL, she’s pulling the oldest female celeb trick in the book! No one cares about my movies, no one is all that interested in my music, so how to stay in the news? Body image! Lots and lots of stories about my diet and workout regime! Lots of tabloids speculating about my health! Well played PR people, well played. Physically yes I think she is very healthy and looks good, but it must be terrifying for a performer to realize at 19(!) that you don’t have the talent to compete long term. Prepare yourselves for lots more diet stories and a zillion pre-wedding “leaks”.

  17. nikzilla37 says:

    I want to be on the Miley workout plan.

  18. NerdMomma says:

    What a gorgeous couple. I now always assume that whoever gets papped a lot is calling the paps, so she must be gearing up for something, career-wise.

  19. eb says:

    Yeah, Miley is totally gaga for him. It seems whenever there is a photo op of the couple there is at least one picture of her looking at him. I hope to see a picture of him looking at her. But I suppose when you put a ring on your gf finger that is Australian gaga. No need to look at my sheila when I’ve already marked her as off limits.

  20. Jaime says:

    I believe she’s just eating right and working out hard. Liam and Chris are obviously not slouches when it comes to nutrition and exercise. I think Miley is just getting into it a little. She doesn’t look unhealthy to me at all.

  21. DemoCat827 says:

    Query: Has anyone ever seen Liam Hemsworth’s teeth? I have never seen him show his teeth. Are they epic disasters a la Johnny Depp’s?

  22. Me says:

    She looks lovely. She also look very very very happy. For such a young girl I think shes doing fab. Cant stand her though.

  23. Sequined Pajamas says:

    I like the dress. She looks amazing.

  24. AmyLynne says:

    I wish she’d stop dying her hair. I like her natural darker color and it looks so dry and unhealthy!

  25. ramona says:

    That “dress” is simply hideous. What designer actually felt that it was a good idea to create that thing? Where did they go to fashion schoool, a gas station? Ewwwwww.

  26. sup says:

    well if she is then she’s slowing down her metabolism… once she starts eating back normally the weight will attack her

  27. valleymiss says:

    Miley looks great and healthy. Love the hair, love the makeup, and love that she’s been bitten by the workout bug. It makes you feel great. However, that dress is AWFUL. Didn’t Paula Abdul wear something similar in one of her music videos from 1989? Yikes. I was just reading about how Miley is taking a break from showbiz and I say do it, girl. You’re 19 and you’ve worked your whole childhood. You’ve earned it. (Sorry, but with very Southern very Christian Miley coming out in strong support of gay marriage, she’s grown on me a lot.)

  28. Jen says:

    That dress looks like what her mom probably wore to win over Billy Ray back in the day.

    From the neck up, best I’ve seen her look.

  29. Luffy says:

    I feel like Miley will be the one to end the relationship. Chris seems like the type to be married, but Miley doesn’t. I think she loves him, but this isn’t the right time for her.

  30. Lisa says:

    lmao, speculation is getting ridiculous. Let’s acknowledge two things:
    1) People go to extremes either without realizing or initially meaning to.
    2) Miley is under more pressure as a celebrity, one whose figure has been criticized.

    As prevalent and serious as eating disorders are, I’m getting tired of hearing about every woman existing on 500 calories. It’s always the same MO. It is possible to get a good body without killing yourself in the process. If she’s doing it correctly, awesome. If not, the media has no business calling her out publicly.

  31. novaraen says:

    You cannot workout for 3 hours a day on only 500 calories. Sorry..can’t be done. Not enough fuel for that kind of a workout.

  32. mar says:

    I think she looks better then ever. Did she have her nose done? Something looks different in her face

  33. Mrs.Krabapple says:

    The kind of crash diet she seems to be on will f– up your metabolism, and you’ll pay for it for the rest of your life. The sad thing is, young girls will look at her and think it’s a great idea.

    • Amelia says:

      Sorry to be pedantic, Mrs K, but research shows that yo-yo dieting and EDs do not permanently affect metabolic rate. Chronic dieting simply drives down calorie requirements by eroding fat and muscle as the body breaks down protein for fuel as a last resort. So when you start to eat properly again, the weight will pile back on because your calorie requirements have not shifted back to a normal level. The body’s ridiculously adaptable. S’quite good, really :)
      Great name, by the way.

  34. rumbleseat says:

    Well she’s looking better than ever! I think she is the one person on earth that can have that much filler on her upper lip since it hides her gumminess. On anyone else it would look hideous.

    Both her face and body are looking real good.

  35. Fleur says:

    Aww, I love Chris Hemsworth! It was hard to win me over on him too, Thor didn’t do it, but I swooned over the Huntsman incarnation of him so…yeah, I’m easily manipulated.

    As for Liam, objectively ‘prettier’, yes. I can’t really fantasize about Liam though—he looks SO much like a now-married ex boyfriend of mine from a million years ago. And married X boyfriends are way off limits in the fantasy department, so every time I see Liam Hemsworth it makes me think of him, and it’s a total romantic turn off.

    That said, I’m actually in the percentage that thinks it’s sweet Miley and Liam are engaged. Seriously, she’s probably had a bizarre Dickensian-Disney-factory childhood (to say nothing of that horrific Vanity Fair incident). Let her chill and be happy now that’s she’s of an age where she has some autonomy. Liam seems really good for her.

    Additionally: I really, really, really wish she’d stop tanning (or fake tanning). She and Gwyneth Paltrow and Johnny Depp. It makes them look so much older. It should be okay to embrace your actual skin tone

  36. hateonit. says:

    I’m sorry. she’s just never going to be pretty in my eyes. her dress…well she’s 19 and has a lean look so whatever. her fiancé used to be so yummy to me idk his brother definitely does it for me though ohhh Chris<3 lol

  37. Erin says:

    I think that dress looks great on her and honestly I would have chosen it if I were her too. She looks way too healthy to be starving. If anything she’s losing baby fat – I lost a lot of it at her age and my body is much different now than it was when I was a teenager. I think it’s been bred into her that looks matter, so I can see why she chooses to show off her body.

  38. JennJennM says:

    The dress is iunflatterimg, and the skin on her upper chest is already showing sun damage, in contrast to her lighter face due to makeup or sunblock. Why do celebs like that bicolored face/body contrast that makes it look like their heads were phtotoshopped onto their bodies? Miley is not going to age well.

  39. Carolyn says:

    Miley’s crapping herself now that Liam is hot and successful. Any woman who puts their arm over the chest of their partner in photos is saying “back of he’s mine” to all competitors. The increased diet and exercise regime is also a clue she’s worried. As is the more attention to her looks. Not all engaged couples get married. She knows this. I think they look great together. Whether they’ll get married…who knows?

  40. Lauren says:

    Miley should not get married. She is only a teenager! LH seems very decent, but i cannot imagine MS being married to the same dude for the next 60 years. I could be wrong though. Miley has been supporting her family since she was 12 years old, so maybe she is ready for marriage. Liam seems very stable, kind & mature.

  41. Bri says:

    I don’t necessarily think that getting married at 19 is the way to go, it’s worked for some people though…why not them? Her body language when she’s next to him says it all, she LOVES that man (and wants him in the sack after that event is over). Hopefully they make it a long engagement, make sure that they work together on a practical day to day, mundane stuff kind of level and then get married to live happily ever after. It’s a dream most people have, I certainly don’t begrudge her/them for it.

  42. dizzy says:

    I don’t like her, but I’ve always been jealous of her legs. And I agree about the Hemsworth boys; they’ve never done it for me.

  43. D1 says:

    No, because she’d have to be hospitalized.

    Even just sitting burns about 40 calories/hour. Combine the # of calories burnt during her 3-hr workouts and those burnt over the remaining 21 hrs and she’d have a negative calorie count for the day.

  44. Hawk says:

    I would hope the exercise is paying off, since Miley seems to spend more time going to the gym then to acting gigs.

  45. Esmom says:

    She still looks like a chipmunk to me.

  46. misstrishm says:

    She’s just a cute girl. I don’t see her as a beautiful girl imo. But her hair is down right brassy. She has a rockin body though

  47. Katie says:

    I’m blinded by Liam’s hotness.

  48. Luci says:

    Well since everyone is giving their opinion on either the relationship of these two young adults or on the actions of these individuals, here is mine whether or not you agree with it. We have always seen Miley Cyrus as the spontaneous teenage girl she played on TV. She grows up, makes mistakes, and has the public commenting on her every move. Now you and I both know we have made mistakes in the past but we are neither famous nor insanely rich, so no one really documents these events except the ones affected. I don’t think it is right for anyone to judge her on her decisions because she is still learning from them and never did as many people judge us as they do with her. Imagine doing something really wrong, regretting it and fixing the problem but always having dozens and dozens of people reminding you about it. I have to say after reading the comments I am surprised by the reactions. Everyone has a different view. I personally like the dress, though it is too revealing for her age. Then again, she is getting married at such a young age so the way she dresses doesn’t surprise me. AND then again, I am in no position to judge their relationship or plans to get married. I have no right to judge the way they look, the things they say, or what they do. I only judge what they do in their work – whether it is acting or singing – because that is what they try to present to us… entertainment. Not news of their everyday actions. The press sees we comment and care, they publish more. This will always happen as long as way give attention to it. What I did right now was give attention to the story.

  49. Luci says:

    If she was a model and advertising a product, she looks great how she is right now. In my opinion, she should not loose anymore weigh or try to surpass anyone to get her husband’s attention.
