Miley Cyrus came to her husband Liam Hemsworth’s rescue Monday and attended the “Isn’t It Romantic” premiere on behalf of the actor, who is recovering from an illness following his hospital visit over the weekend.
Cyrus graced the red carpet wearing a sheer, red Maison Valentino dress. The singer told reporters that her “man’s not well” and came to the premiere to represent for him. Hemsworth was hospitalized Saturday night and was noticeably absent from the Grammys, where Cyrus walked the red carpet with her parents, Billy Ray Cyrus and Tish Cyrus, before performing with Shawn Mendes and later Dolly Parton.
People reported Hemsworth was recovering from kidney stones.
The 26-year-old singer later wrote on Instagram that Hemsworth wasn’t able to attend due to “health reasons.”
“So proud of my hunky hubby @liamhemsworth & his newest movie #IsntItRomantic. He unfortunately wasn’t able to attend due to health reasons... but he is recovering and taking this time to rest / heal,” Cyrus wrote in a post. “It’s hard for entertainers to put themselves before the project but this time it was crucial .... I am proud to represent him and his incredible work.”
“So happy to see him shining in this comedy! He is the funniest person I know, and the world now gets to see the Liam I wake up to every day.... luckiest,” she added.
Cyrus also posed next to a photo of Hemsworth playing the saxophone with the caption: Getting sick blows. But so do I. Get well soon babe. I love you. Play that sax you sexy f---.”
Hemsworth also thanked his new wife for attending the movie premiere and apologized to his fans for his absence.
“Sorry I couldn’t make it to the @isntitromantic premier tonight guys. Been dealing with some pretty annoying health stuff the last couple days. Lucky I have the best girl in the world to represent for me! Thanks for the support babe! I hope everyone enjoys the movie! It’s a perfect Valentine’s Day flick so if ya ain’t got nothin better to do then go see it! Love to all!” he captioned an Instagram photo of Cyrus.
“Isn’t It Romantic” co-star Rebel Wilson revealed Sunday morning Hemsworth was in the hospital overnight but did not provide further details on the incident.
Hemsworth and Cyrus tied the knot in December in an intimate and secret ceremony.
