Billy Ray Cyrus famously told GQ that Hannah Montana “destroyed my family” — and put his daughter Miley, now 18, on a collision course to danger and even an early potential death.
But Miley sees the life-changing Disney show a little differently.
During a Thursday night appearance on The Jimmy Fallon Show, the star spoke briefly about her bygone time on the series. “I miss doing that stuff too, you know,” she told Fallon.
The singer-actress squirmed when Fallon pressed her about Hannah Montana — touting her comedic chops on the show. “You’re kinda fun like that [on Hannah],” Fallon said.
“I’m fun like that,” Cyrus said. “This is awkward!”
Fallon finally asked Cyrus — who guest-hosts Saturday Night Live this week — whether she missed the show.
“Yeah,” she admitted.
During Billy Ray’s GQ interview, he drew parallels between his wild daughter and Hollywood casualties Kurt Cobain, Michael Jackson and Anna Nicole Smith.
He added that he wished Miley hadn’t been cast. “I’d take it back in a second. For my family to be here and just everybody be okay, safe and sound and happy and normal, would have been fantastic. Heck, yeah. I’d erase it all in a second if I could.”
