Liam Hemsworth and Miley Cyrus, who announced their engagement on June 6, appeared at the 2012 Australians in Film Awards Thursday (June 28), where Hemsworth was being honored as a breakthrough actor of the year. And in his speech, he had a bit of a slip of the tongue when talking about how he met Miley.

“I was fortunate enough to get called back in and read with my now fiance who I recently got engaged to. And we read together and fell in love and now we’re married [pause] We’re not married yet, but we will be,” says Hemsworth.

That’d be a heckuva way to break the news of a secret wedding, no? But it probably was just a verbal misstep.

As for the wedding, Hemsworth tells Extra on the red caret that “it’s a secret right now” and that they are trying to work out the details.
