Liam Hemsworth hospitalized, wife Miley Cyrus appears at Grammy with parents
Actor Liam Hemsworth was hospitalized urgently and as a result, missed press day with his co-stars for his upcoming movie. He was also not present at the 2019 Grammy Awards for the same reason.
Liam Hemsworth, who played a character in the soon-to-be-released movie "Isn't It Romantic" was absent when his co-stars met with the press on Sunday to promote the movie. Stars at the press day were Rebel Wilson, Priyanka Chopra, and Adam DeVine.
When asked about Hemsworth, Wilson said,
"He’s texted us this morning. He was in hospital overnight, so hopefully, he will be fine."
Hemsworth played "Blake" in the movie which is about a woman who is disenchanted with love and, after getting hit on the head, wakes up in a world where everything around her plays out like a romantic comedy film.
A Warner Bros representative reportedly revealed that Hemsworth didn't feel well when he woke up and advised that he would miss the press day. However, the actor's representative has not responded to a request for comment.
Due to the same reason, the "Hunger Games" actor did not attend the 61st Annual Grammy Awards ceremony with Miley, as expected. Instead, the 26-year-old, who wore a black, oversized Mugler suit with strappy heels, walked the red carpet with her parents, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus.
While Miley wasn't nominated for any awards at this year's Grammy's, she was scheduled to perform at the ceremony.
First was a surprise duet with Shawn Mendes of his new hit single "In My Blood." She then joined her godmother, Dolly Parton, to perform "Jolene."
This act was part of a move to honor the veteran country music crooner at the award show. The tribute began when 73-year-old Parton was joined on stage with Katy Perry and Kacey Musgraves for a rendition of her song "Here You Come Again," before Miley sang "Jolene" with her.
Parton and her goddaughter were then joined by Maren Morris for a performance of "After the Gold Rush." Musical group, "Little Big Town" came on next to perform with the country singer.
The tribute did not come to an end until all the musicians came together to perform Parton's 1980 hit "9 to 5."
However, celebrating Parton started even before the show. Miley and Shawn Mendes teamed up on Friday at the "MusiCares Person of the Year" gala in LA to perform "Islands in the Stream," Parton's 1989 duet with Kenny Rogers.
