BEVERLY HILLS — She began acting in her late teens, broke through with a series of youth-oriented romantic films and went on to launch a decades-long career as one of the most famous women in the world. Now, Demi Moore is ready to share the screen with [artist id="2408193"]Miley Cyrus[/artist] — who began acting in her late teens and has recently broken through with a series of youth-oriented movies.
The title of the flick might be “LOL,” but the thought of the pair onscreen together already has fans thinking “OMG!”
“She plays my daughter,” Demi told us Friday (April 9) of the upcoming flick. “It’s a remake of a French film called ‘LOL,’ with the same French director [Lisa Azuelos]. She’s incredible.”
We caught up with Moore while she was doing interviews for her April 16 film “The Joneses,” a cool, thought-provoking flick about a phony family dispatched to rich neighborhoods by corporate America to make them jealous of their possessions. Moore plays the “mother” of the family opposite David Duchovny — who couldn’t help but speak up when he heard the name Miley Cyrus.
“Can I come visit you on set with my daughter?” asked Duchovny, who watches “Hannah Montana” with his 10-year-old, knowing he’d get immediate cred as a hip dad.
“Yes, you can,” promised Moore, revealing that the film will shoot outside of Los Angeles. “But you will have to travel on location.”
“She’s funny,” Duchovny added, revealing himself as an unlikely fan of the “Last Song” actress. “I watch it with my kids, and I’ll be like, ‘That girl is funny!’ ”
“I’m really looking forward to it,” Moore said of the flick, which casts Miley as a teen who gets dumped by her boyfriend while her mother is simultaneously getting over her divorce, causing both to seek out new love while struggling to remain close to each other.
Recently, Moore met with Miley, and she told us they hit it off and the film is full-speed ahead. “We’re just kind of getting going,” Moore said. “She’s great, and I think that she is incredibly grounded.”
Moore also said she got to spend some time with Billy Ray Cyrus, who makes it a point to stay involved in his daughter’s career. “[Miley] is a true professional, and she truly has a wonderful family,” Moore said. “It really shows.”
