Miley Cyrus‘ new interview with DigitalSpy. Did you get a lot of creative control on The Last Song since it’s under the Disney umbrella? Actually it wasn’t just a Disney film, it was Touchstone. So Touchstone took it and they made it a little bit less about what people know me as, the music and all that stuff.
They still let me incorporate it but it was a step away from, not Disney, because I love that I’m appreciated by them, but it was a nice step away for people to see that’s not all I can do. To see that I could go into any kind of setting and be ready for new challenges.
Is he really that bad a singer [In regards to Miley & Liam singing Maroon 5 in in car]? It was put on a little bit for the film. What I love about him is that he’s not an actor that also wants to have a record deal and clothing line and all that stuff. I know I do that, but it’s because music is on my show and it’s how I..
..got started. Not everybody has to have an album if they’re going to be an actor. Y’know, let’s just stick to one thing that you’re good at. That’s what I like, he didn’t try to show off. He was like, ‘Dude, I’m not trying to be a singer, I’m trying to be funny in the movie!
How would you like to define yourself going forward? Actress or singer? I would like to continue acting, that’s what I really love. Music is a huge part of my life but acting is definitely something that I’m really looking forward to getting more involved in.
This next film I’m doing is a remake of a French film called LOL with Demi Moore and I’m really looking forward to working with her and the French director. Have you met Demi yet? Yeah, we’re good friends so I think it’ll be fun to work with someone you like a lot. It makes it easier.
What’s the film about? It’s about this mum who’s going through a mid-life crisis of drugs and all this crazy stuff and she thinks that her daughter will never understand and look up to her anymore because of the choices she makes. She then finds her daughter’s diary and realises that she’s doing worse..
..than her and they go through this crisis together at different points of their life but realise how similar they are. I think it’s a really cool story. We’re shooting it independently so we can do it with exactly the edginess we want. It’ll be a little darker than The Last Song.
