It’s not too surprising to hear the 16-year-old actress/singer speaking her mind, and in a new interview with Glamour, Cyrus didn’t disappoint. She offered her thoughts on everything from her boyfriend to her role models.
“I’m a huge Jennifer Aniston fan and a huge Angelina Jolie fan,” Cyrus said. “Jennifer Aniston can put on a plain black dress with plain makeup and hair and look so stunning. Angelina always looks so comfortable in her own skin. She’s also changed, going from wild child to being a mom and having a normal life. And Jennifer Aniston bounced back after her divorce. If anything like that ever happens to me, I’m like, ‘Pull a Jennifer, Miley!’ She is so classy.”
In 10 years, she still won’t be as old as either of those Hollywood A-listers, but Cyrus envisions herself married, still making movies and being “the cool mom.”
Though she counts Aniston and Jolie as her career role models, Cyrus said the person who has had the biggest impact on her is her boyfriend . “The best thing that’s happened to me in a long, long time has been meeting Justin [Gaston], because he’s the most respectful and selfless person I’ve ever known,” she said.
When it comes to gossip about her, the “Hannah Montana” star confesses to utter confusion. “When I read something in the tabloids and it’s from an ‘insider,’ I want to know who thinks they’re on the ‘inside,’ ” she told Glamour. “Because I can count on one hand the people who really know me.”
Even though the constant rumor-mongering might not be accurate, all that chatter still has an effect on the teenager — especially when it comes to comments about her body. “One thing that bugs me is people who say, ‘Miley really needs to lose some weight,’ or, ‘She got her boobs done,’ ” Cyrus said. “I did start out really skinny, but you’re not going to have boobs when you’re 12 years old. I’m like, ‘What are you talking about? Let me grow!’ ”
And speaking of growing — and making the occasional misstep — Miley is sure of one thing: “The minute I stop making mistakes is the minute I stop learning.”
