Miley Cyrus says she’s playing a character onstage

Is Miley Cyrus the best actress ever? In a December 26 interview with the New York Times, the 21-year old pop star said she’s really just playing a character when she acts wild and crazy onstage.

"I went from people just thinking I was, like, a baby to people thinking I'm this, like, sex freak that really just pops molly and does lines all day,” she said, “It's like, 'Has anyone ever heard of rock 'n' roll?' There's a sex scene in pretty much every single movie, and they go, 'Well, that's a character.' Well, that's a character. I don't really dress as a teddy bear and, like, twerk on Robin Thicke you know?"

Cyrus also admitted that her wild reputation has made it difficult for her to have famous friends.

"I don't have a bunch of celeb friends, because I feel like some of them are a little scared of the association," she said.

And she also put the kibosh on being a role model for teens, saying, "Right now, me doing any kind of cover for anything that's like, a Seventeen or Teen Vogue or whatever, the way that I talk isn't the way that people that are 17 really understand."

In the past, the former “Hannah Montana” star admitted that her days as a Disney star weren’t as squeaky clean as her sitcom scripts. In August, she told UK’s Sunday People, “During ‘Hannah Montana’ I think people knew I was acting. I’ve never been able to hide anything, a bit like Justin Bieber. Others who have been on kids’ shows try to act like their characters – but I’m not like that. I never pretended I was as good as the Disney Channel writes.”
