Miley Cyrus


  1. Emily Osment,  Hannah Montana, TV,  2006-2011.    First, there was Hilary Duff, then, Britney Spears. And then Disney launched a whole new teen girl idol when dropping Miley as Lily Truscott – and giving her the lead for five years with her wig’s fringe glued to her forehead. The new Lily is younger sister of  the find from The Sixth Sense – Haley Joel Osment.
  2. Selena Gomez, Ramon and Beezus, 2009.     One Disney moppet for another for the  film of the children’s books.   Hannah Montana  passed Beezus to Alex Russo (of The Wizards of Waverly Place).  Title stems from Beverly Cleary’s first Ramona book, the plot from her second and third.  Hey, it’s Hollywood! Hence both  moppets  changed  – and so rapidly – into Lolita sexpots. 
  3. Julianne Hough, Footloose, 2010,     As the lead role changed from Zac Efron to Kenny Wormald, so did  his main squeeze  – from Miley, Amanda Bynes and  Hayden Panettiere to the fast-rising blonde from Utah… and  Cher’s first and only musical,  Burlesque.
  4. Selena Gomez, Hotel Transylvania, 2011.  Welcome to… The Stupidest Reason For Losing A Film  Roile…  Eight years after the fact, Cyrus tweeted about being fired from voicing teenage vampire Mavis for…wait for it… having been photographed licking a penis birthday cake she’d bought for her then lover, Liam Hemsworth!   The Sony suits actually feared the pix might affect the box-office. But… but… this was a toon!  Mavis was a vocal gig. Nobody chooses which toon to see because of the voices involved – they’re usually far from distinctive. Unles, it was Robin Williiams.
  5. Holliday Grainer, Bonnie & Clyde, TV, 2013.  In what would have been her first TV gig after five years as Disney’s Hannah Montana, Cyrus was the hot favourite  for Bonnie Parker in the cockeyed two-parter about the murderous 1930s bank robbers. Then, she wasn’t…  Texan Hilary Duff was booked to join Canadian Kevin Zegers as Clyde – until they became Utah’s Lindsay Pulsipher and Houston’s Sean Faris… and, finally, the British Grainger (good training for her 2015 Lady Chatterley) and Californian Emile Hirsch. Nothing made us forget Dunaway and Beatty!
