Disney Channel Stars Miley Cyrus and Hilary Duff Talk on Instagram Live
In a People Magazine article, Miley Cyrus credits Hilary Duff as her personal inspiration. The two talked on Miley’s Instagram Live talk show, Bright Minded: Live with Miley. Both actresses got their start on the Disney Channel as Hannah Montana and Lizzie McGuire.
On the show, Miley says the only reason she took the lead role in Hannah Montana was to copy Hilary Duff. 27 year old Miley admits she was a huge fan of Hilary’s (now 32),”I wanted to say that I came to your concert when I was 11 and I told you that I wore a plaid skirt and Uggs to the show because you wore a plaid skirt and Uggs.”
She continued, “And from the nosebleed seats I was hoping you would notice me and be like, ‘Hey girl, nice Uggs!’ I don’t know what I was thinking, but I was obsessed with your T-shirt. It was bedazzled and it said ‘Nashville,’ and I immediately went and bought a bedazzler and I stayed up all night jeweling everything that I owned.”
Miley goes on to say she immediately went to California to audition for the Hannah Montana role and ended up getting the lead. “So I just wanted to say thank you again for just inspiring me,” she says. “I would never be sitting here, being able to be a light if it wasn’t for you and you showing me how to do that.”
