Nicholas Sparks talked to the Dish Rag exclusively about Miley Cyrus‘ input (her character’s name, animals, no singing) into the script for his new film, “The Last Song.”

]]> And he was one of the first on the set to notice the chemistry between the award-winning singer and her movie love interest, Liam Hemsworth. He calls it “‘sparkles’ in their eyes.” Hemsworth was so convincing as a great boyfriend in the film that he landed the role in real life: Yup, he’s Miley’s main man.  She says her mother cast him in the movie. Way to go, Mom! If we were Miley, we’d let her pick out all our boyfriends. Can’t wait to see Miley and Liam’s first kiss? “The Last Song” opens on March 31.  Follow Zap2it’s Dish Rag on Twitter and Zap2it on Facebook for the latest celeb news and buzz.
