Singer/actress Miley Cyrus, 20, is denying that she is romantically interested in One Direction's Harry Styles, 18, after she tweeted fully clothed photos of herself in bed snuggling affectionately next to a life-sized cutout of Styles on January 8, 2013. In another photo that she tweeted, Miley and her 13-year-old sister Noah are seen fully clothed in bed together and puckering up to the Harry Styles figure that is placed in the middle of them.
In a follow-up tweet, Miley said: "In no way do I want Harry. No offense. I'm sure that'll be a story now 2. I'm happily engaged. Just got saucy with a cardboard cut out."
Miley has been engaged to her actor Liam Hemsworth since 2012. He's been her on-again/off-again boyfriend since 2009. They met when they worked together in 2009 on her movie "The Last Song," which was released the following year. There were recent false reports that Miley and Hemsworth eloped over the Christmas 2012 holidays.
The Cyrus sisters' publicity stunt with the Harry Styles cutout comes right when insiders say that the Cyrus family has been desperately trying to find work for Noah, who is an aspiring actress and singer. Noah had a small role in Miley's now-cancelled Disney Channel sitcom "Hannah Montana," but Noah hasn't accomplished even a fraction of what Miley accomplished when Miley was Noah's age.
Styles isn't the only member of "X Factor" U.K. boy band One Direction whom Miley tweeted about in a posting that made headlines. As previously reported, she talked about One Direction's Zayn Malik, 19, when she tweeted this message on July 27, 2012: “Feel like I’m hangin with a 13 year old girl when I have sleepovers with gays! Weve spent an hour stalking Zayn from @onedirection but gotta admit I love every second of it."
As for Miley's career, her 2012 movie "LOL" was a huge flop, and she has been making news lately more for her "look at me, I'm all grown up and trying to be edgy" antics than for a new album or movie.
