"In the acting world, if your personal life eclipses the work that you're doing, it's hard for people to separate the person from the character that you're trying to play," she told Stellar Magazine.
"I have my friends, I have my family, I have the "real" part of my life. And the attention on my private life is not my reality— if that makes sense."
"I don't let it affect me too much. I am just happy to be working."
Maddison and Liam were linked romantically in October last year after they were spotted locking lips on the streets of New York City. Days later, a source told New Idea that while their romance was very new at the time, Liam was head over heels for his then-girlfriend.
“It’s still early days but Liam is head over heels for Maddison. This has all the makings of a serious relationship,” their source told New Idea. "He and Maddison have so much in common, they're having a great time."
Days beforehand, Liam and Gabriella— who studied ancient history and archaeology at the University of Sydney— were spotted grabbing lunch with his parents, Craig and Leonie.
“[They] have spent a lot of time in Australia together,” a source told PEOPLE. "She has met his siblings and parents [and] Liam has been in a great mood."
As we know, Liam previously dated and later married Miley Cyrus. Eight months after they wed, their PR team announced they'd called time on their romance.
After a nasty split, their divorce was finalised on January 28. Liam reportedly cited “irreconcilable differences” as the reason behind the split.
