For months, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth have had us (and everyone else!) scratching our heads trying to figure out whether or not their engagement is back on — though she’s openly wearing a ring on that finger and some reports have Miley planning a summer wedding, while others see Liam saying they’re not even engaged.

In a new exclusive interview with Entertainment Tonight, the actor refuses to comment on the official state of their union, but he does offer some insight as to why.

“I just find it’s easier to not talk about my personal life, cause usually I say the wrong thing, so it just ends up complicating things more,” he explains.

Hmmm. Could that be a clue that his last statement on their status put him in the doghouse with Miley? According to Liam (who did concede that things were going rather well for the two lovebirds), that’s a big negative.

“Everyone’s happy, I’m happy, yeah,” he shared. Based on the matching tat Miley just scored with Liam’s sis-in-law Elsa Pataky, we kinnnnddd of assumed as much.

Though he didn’t offer much more, (“I feel it’s just easier on everyone if we keep it personal,”) all seems right in the world of Miley and Liam in whatever state their r-ship is currently in. Wedding bells or no wedding bells, for now, these two seem to be perfectly content just to be. Awwwww!

Do you think it’s smart of Liam to keep quiet about his relationship? Let us know over @BritandCo!
