Like former Disney stars Hillary Duff and Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus is leaving for hopefully bigger and better things. As Hannah Montana, Cyrus has earned Disney over $750 million. She recently said, “I won’t have this mold they want me to fit into. I can just be who I want to be.” She went on to say, “But as I’ve grown into Hannah Montana I’ve also grown out of her.” The announcement came on the heels of winning the Favorite Movie Actress award at the Nickelodeon 23rd Annual Kids’ Choice Awards Saturday.
Cyrus’ latest starring movie role in The Last Song is her first big role that’s not connected to Hannah Montana. While Lohan, who starred in Disney’s The Parent Trap has to some extent had a career in movies, other singers and stars of network vehicles have not been able to successfully make the switch. Her film resume is set to become more impressive, with upcoming roles in Sex and the City 2 (where she stars as herself) and the movie Wings, about a teen fairy who is sent to live among humans. She met her current boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth, on the set of The Last Song.
