Hannah Montana: The Movie director Peter Chelsom has compared Miley Cyrus to singing, acting legend Judy Garland. He being ‘blown away‘ the first time he saw Miley. Chelsom recalled an appearance on Oprah Winfrey’s talk show which left him speechless.
He told E! Online:
‘I was blown away. I just thought, you know there is no way this girl shouldn’t
be ranked with Shirley Temple or Judy Garland. I couldn’t believe it. It was like watching an evening with Barbra Streisand. She was 15 for the whole making of the movie.. was Barbra doing that at 15? I don’t think so.’
