Miley Cyrus Tells Hilary Duff She's The Reason She Wanted 'Hannah Montana' Role: 'I Just Wanted To Copy You'

Miley Cyrus is sharing a super sweet moment with her inspiration Hilary Duff!

The two former Disney Channel stars caught up with each other during Wednesday’s (March 25) episode of Miley‘s Instagram Live talk show Bright Minded.

Miley admitted that the “only reason” she took the lead role in Disney Channel’s Hannah Montana was so she could “copy” Hilary‘s path, who is best known for playing Lizzie McGuire.

“I wanted to say that I came to your concert when I was 11 and I told you that I wore a plaid skirt and Uggs to the show because you wore a plaid skirt and Uggs,” Miley told Hilary, adding that that she flew to Los Angeles “almost immediately so I could audition for Disney and I ended up getting the role.”

“But the only reason I wanted it was so I could do whatever you did. And so really, I don’t think I gave a s— about being an actress or a singer. I just wanted to copy you no matter what,” Miley continued. “So I just wanted to say thank you again for just inspiring me. I would never be sitting here, being able to be a light if it wasn’t for you and you showing me how to do that.”

In response, Hilary had nothing but kind words for Miley: “First of all, you’re so sweet, and I feel like I’ve known you for such a long time,” she told Cyrus. “Just to hear you say that, I feel like you have been such a bright light and you have made so many choices that have been so bold and you’re an inspiration to me and to all of us — and you continue to be.”

That same day, Miley Cyrus invited Reese Witherspoon to come onto her live video stream to chat about the state of the world and more – Check it out HERE!
