Miley Cyrus Talks Hannah Montana And Her Latest Movies
It's been a while since Miley Cyrus played out favorite pop superstar Hannah Montana on the popular Disney channel TV show. In a recent interview she revealed what she misses and what exciting new projects she's been working on.
On missing playing the role of Hannah Montana:
I miss the family vibe, but I don't miss the routine at all. I was so bored doing the same thing every day. It's a lot easier not being on a show, to live my life a little bit and do some of the other things that I want to do. I don't have to be back at a certain time. You're not worrying about a cast schedule or what the producers are going to think. I'm so grateful that I was able to be on that show, but even my little sister, who's 11, who wants to go into acting, I say, "Just wait, dude." Because the way you're going to be when you're my age and the way you are right now are so different. Don't put yourself into a situation where people are going to think of you as only one thing. You're going to change a lot. You're going to change every year. It interferes with your growing up if you're not strong and you're not sure who you want to be. I'm glad I'm not a character any more and able to be me.
On people taking her picture without her permission:
I'm with my boyfriend, for instance, and we're walking around. We're sure that no one is taking our picture. We are sure of it. No one has followed us. No one is here. And then, a few hours later, it's like, "Miley Cyrus alert." She was seen with Liam in public, they were kissing and hugging, and you're like, "What the hell? I didn't see anybody taking our photograph that day." I think that's what I would have enjoyed the most – just being able to be in public and not feel like I'm being watching. You know, my dad and me, we're pretty good with fans. We don't mind people taking our picture if they ask. But when they don't ask, that's a whole different level of weird.
On her latest movies (So Undercover and LOL Laughing Out Loud):
There are things I do for me, and there are things I do for the fans, and So Undercover was something I really wanted to do for the fans. It's the kind of comedy that they're used to seeing me do on my show. It's more for the 13-, 14-, 15-, 16-year-old crow. LOL Laughing Out Loud is still for the younger kids, but we did it independently and we shot it with Demi Moore and me. It's more like real life. It's a really cool story about a mom and a daughter, and the girl becoming a teenager and the mom going through a midlife crisis, and how a lot of things that they are going through are actually the same. It's funny how life kind of works like that.
On what she is currently working on:
I'm in the middle of going back and forth on a couple of films and trying to figure out what I really want to do. Right now I just want to focus on the sort of movies that I would rush to go see. There have been a few films that have been brought to me that have been interesting, but nothing is definite. I just want a really good game plan right now. This is when I'm going to work and this is when I'm going to be off, that sort of thing. Hopefully, by the end of this year I'll be working on something. I would love to do more comedies, but not the comedies that people have seen me in. More kind of dry, that kind of style, independently shot, but also some laugh-out-loud funny stuff and drama as well. When you become a character, you want to make sure that it's a part you want to open up and explore for yourself. So I think the next few things.. there's a comedy that I'm working on now and something a little darker.
On something that she thinks will surprise her fans about her:
I'm really driven, obviously. I've always been that way, but my life is just really mellow, and I like hanging out. I think if they walked into where I live, they'd realise how the [public] perception of my is so different from who I really am. People would be shocked to know that I'm very thankful for what I have, but my career is not my main priotity, it's not my life any more. I really just want to enjoy life and explore nature and become who i am to the fullest.
