An unlikely friendship? During an episode of Miley Cyrus’ new Instagram Live series, Bright Minded, the two former Disney stars had a chat and it turns out they have a lot more in common than one might think. Just Jared reported on the exchange from the 25th of March, in which Miley made a surprising claim about Hillary.
According to Cyrus, the primary reason why she took the role in Hannah Montana was so she could imitate Hillary’s rise in the entertainment industry.
As most know, Duff, despite releasing successful music and working in several films, is most famous for her portrayal of Lizzie McGuire. Miley claims that after she went to Duff’s concert when she was just 11-years-old, she wore Uggs and a plaid shirt just because Huff did as well.
After that, Miley explained, jetted off to Los Angeles and auditioned for the part in Hannah Montana.
According to the singer-songwriter, she didn’t care what happened, all that mattered was that she followed in Duff’s footsteps, which she ultimately did in the end. Cyrus thanked Duff for providing inspiration. She said she wouldn’t be where she is today without her.
Hillary was clearly flattered by Miley’s comments, starting off her response by saying she was “so sweet,” and adding she felt as if she and Miley had known each other forever. On the same day, Miley invited Reese Witherspoon to come on her show as well.
As most know, amid the coronavirus scare, many Americans are staying at home, including much of the entertainment industry. It was reported this past week that NBC shut down approximately 35 of their productions, which is a big part of the reason why many celebs and television show hosts are using social media as a means to create and distribute content.
Other hosts to put on shows from their homes includes Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Fallon, and Ellen DeGeneres. Earlier this week, Ellen chatted with Kevin Hart through video-call, a conversation during which the Night School star revealed he was practicing his stand-up material at home.
