Douglas Booth Talks Miley Cyrus Dating Rumors

Douglas Booth keeps it cool in Prada for the fourth issue of Varón, on stands worldwide September 8.

The 19-year-old British model/actor, who next stars in the comedy L.O.L., opened up to the magazine’s Senior Editor Anders Christian Madsen. Check it:

On his L.O.L. co-star Miley Cyrus: “She’s very hardworking. She’s like a 30-year-old in her mind. She made [over] $20 million last year, but she’s very down to earth and very humble. You know, she broke her iPhone and her mom wouldn’t give her a new one, and Miley was like, ‘Oh gosh, how much is that gonna cost?’ And I’m like, ‘Um, sorry?’ She doesn’t waste her money at all. She drives a Hybrid… as opposed to having a fleet of cars like I would. I’m not going to lie.”

On rumors he was dating Miley: “You know, I thought it might happen. One morning, I had a call from Luke, my publicist, going, ‘The papers are saying you’re dating Miley Cyrus. Is it true?’ But no, the rumors weren’t true.”

On getting free clothes: “It’s great but I’ve kind of lost touch with buying clothes. The other day my mom was telling me how she’d spent [almost] $1000 on clothes and I was like, ‘How can you spend that much on clothes?’ But then I look at what I get given and realize I’d probably be bankrupt if I had to buy it myself. My wardrobe is ever-expanding.”

Douglas is set to play the lead role in 2012′s Romeo & Juliet, opposite Hailee Steinfeld. Gossip Girl‘s Ed Westwick also co-stars.

    “You know, I thought it might happen. One morning, I had a call from Luke, my publicist, going, ‘The papers are saying you’re dating Miley Cyrus. Is it true?’ But no, the rumors weren’t true.”
    He thought she would date him because there was a rumour that they were dating.
    Judd Apatow wishes he could write comedy this funny.

    “You know I thought it might happen.” – he’s referring to the rumours happening, not a relationship happening. He figured the papers would start those rumours because him and Miley were working together.

  • Lucas

    I agree with Marie and I think he sounds like a really nice, sensible person.

    Sometimes I wonder are these actors/actresses really honest and truthful in their interviews or do they say these words for PR sake?

  • Alaia

    “She’s very hardworking. She’s like a 30-year-old in her mind.”

    I saw some of her interviews and let’s just say I’m not sure she is 30-years-old intellectually. I don’t even think she’s 10-years-old intellectually.

  • megumi

    looks like he is not old enough to quite grow a real stache yet……………..

  • Jey C.

    Any news about Romeo&Juliet set ??

  • amy


    No I don’t agree. Miley is mature in many ways, but before when she spoke in interviews she had no filter over what she would say, which is typical of many teens, & I think it was because Miley was so trusting and open, but she has since learned she needed to be careful because there are many out there who wait for a mistep.

    Miley is maturing and she should be “allowed” to. I’m glad she’s keeping more of her private life to herself – that allows her to actually have a private life.

    @Alaia: Miley Cyrus has given many interviews. I doubt she ever came off sounding like a ten year old. For you to say such a thing can only be a complete distortion of what you truly observed. She became lead actor in a TV series, she’s been headliner in over 90 concerts. She starred in two successful movie films, two movies completed to be released later this year, hosted events, and has given her time to charitable organizations. If you were to break down all these accomplishments, you might understand the considerable responsibility Miley carries to maintain such an adult stature many in the industry can only admire when you weigh in the maturity of someone so young. Douglas Booth isn’t the first person to suggest Miley being a 30 year old in a teenage body. You must have some axe to grind to insist Miley Cyrus impressed you as having the presence of a 10 year old in the many interviews you’ve witnessed. I can only hope your keen observation skills don’t interfere with your sense of judgement in your real life experiences.
