Miley J-14 interview. Did you expect so much success from Hannah? I think I knew it would be a success because the writers are so incredible and the script was amazing. But I don’t think I expected it to be like the phenomenon that it is. I don’t think I expected it to open so many doors for other artists on Disney to be able to involve music and acting and all that. I’m really proud to be a part of a really cool family. I’m excited to move on to new things. But I definitely didn’t expect it to take off the way that it did, especially so soon. I can’t believe it’s already coming to an end, either. It feels like we just started.
How do you think you’ve changed? I think I’ve definitely changed a lot. When I came to the set, I had my mom. She was my assistant, makeup artist, hair stylist, and wardrobe person all at the same time. My mom had me in this t-shirt that she had got for me that says ‘I should have my own TV show.’ I had it on with my skirt and full face make up. I was just sitting there like, ‘Oh my God, I’m on a Disney set. My life is like about to change.’ Sure enough, it did. I just remember coming to work with full face makeup, and now we’re all in our pajamas when we come to work. I’m definitely a lot more comfortable with myself and I don’t need to feel like I need to get dressed up every day. This is just like a home to us.
Excited or sad for the show to end? I’m really looking forward to it. Right after this I go into an independent film called LOL with Demi Moore. With Hannah, I’ve been so attached for so long. It is so commercial and so franchised and done for such a big market. I’m going off that type of show into a film that is an indie movie. There isn’t a huge distributor behind it. I’ll be making a film that we think is going to touch people. It’s got a lot of edginess to it and it’s definitely not just for the fan base of Hannah Montana. You’ve just got to choose things that you really like and that are right for you at the time.
