Los Angeles: Singer Miley Cyrus says her real life persona was very different from her character in the TV series ‘Hannah Montana’. She also clarified that unlike others, she never allowed the role to influence her.
Cyrus rose to fame after playing a teenage girl, who lives a double life of a simple girl Miley Stewart and famous pop star Hannah Montana in the Disney channel`s hit TV series.
“I don’t think I’ve ever had to exorcise Hannah because I think people knew I was different from her in real life," dailystar.co.uk quoted Cyrus as saying.
Cyrus, who later went on to establish her singing career with songs like "Climb" and "Can`t be tamed", feels she never needed to be pretentious on the show.
“Most people on Disney act as if they are really like their characters, but I never felt the need to do that," Cyrus said.
“I never pretended I was as good as what Disney writes. They try to make someone not grow up, but you can’t do that to real, normal people," she added.
