Miley Cyrus Slams Disney: They Don't Let People Grow Up

Posted Monday August 12, 2013 5:53 PM GMT

She gained her fame at an early age thanks to her hit television series "Hannah Montana," but now Miley Cyrus is firing back at Walt Disney Studios for trying to keep her and its other actors from growing up.

During an interview with Daily Star on Sunday (August 11), the 20-year-old actress/singer revealed Disney pushes their actors to keep their character image on and off the sets.

"I don't think I've ever had to exorcise Hannah because I think people knew I was different from her in real life," Miss Cyrus explained. "Most people on Disney act as if they are really like their characters but I never felt the need to do that. I never pretended I was as good as what Disney writes."

"They try to make someone not grow up but you can't do that to real normal people. If I'm doing something I'm going to do it right but then once I'm away from it I'll do it my way," she added.

In regards to ending her time with Disney, Miley reveals main reason for her moving on from the studio was because she grew up. "You'd be amazed at the letters Disney get sent. They say stuff like, 'I can't believe she spoke to her dad like that,' or 'I can't believe she wore that shirt.' 'Why does the lead star have boobs?' Err, because she's a female. It's crazy."
