Elsa Pataky, wife of Chris Hemsworth, opened up in an interview with Hola! about her brother-in-law, Liam Hemsworth, and his relationship with soon-to-be ex-wife Miley Cyrus. “My brother-in-law, well, after a relationship where he dedicated 10 years, he’s discouraged … but he’s coping well,” the actress began. "He’s a strong boy and he deserves the best, I think he deserves much better." Life hasn't always been this way — Cyrus and Pataky once shared a bond that was bigger than their shared love of Hemsworth men. As Elle pointed out, the two even got matching tattoos in 2016 to solidify their friendship.

Cyrus and Hemsworth shocked fans when they announced their split in August, less than a year after tying the knot in an intimate ceremony. In a statement to People, a rep for Miley said that their decision to split was mutual, and that neither harbored ill will against the other.

Recently, Cyrus has been seeing Australian singer Cody Simpson, and flaunting their relationship all over Instagram. Hemsworth has been laying low, however he was spotted last month making out with actress Maddison Brown on the streets of New York. New flames aside, if anyone can help Liam deal with heartbreak, it's Thor.
