Miley Cyrus Can't Stand Claustrophobic 'Hannah Montana'

Miley Cyrus

Now that she believes she's too old for kids' show, the 17-year-old Disney star admits that she feels 'claustrophobic' in all 'Hannah Montana' frills.

Miley Cyrus has to "grit her teeth" while filming her hit teen TV show "Hannah Montana" - she feels "claustrophobic" because she has "grown out of" her role on the show. The singer/actress shot to international stardom playing the schoolgirl-turned-secret pop star, landing the part when she was just 12-years-old.

Cyrus has now established herself as a pop star away from the Disney show, and is set to hit the big screen in "The Last Song" - her first lead film role since 2009's "Hannah Montana: The Movie". And the 17-year-old admits she can't stand going back to the teen TV series - because she is now too old to be starring in a kids' show.

She tells Parade magazine, "As I've grown into it, I've grown out of it. When I was 12, I thought, 'I want to be famous all the time! I want everybody to recognize me!' " Cyrus especially hates the "sparkly" costumes she has to wear on the series, adding "(I have) to grit my teeth. I can't breathe looking like that anymore."

"A friend came by the set one day and said, 'You don't look very happy'. I said, 'I'm feeling claustrophobic in all these frills. I hate being thought of as a product. I am not a doll, and people want to treat me that way. I'm older now. I have an opinion. I have my own taste."

    She can grow the character and should have input to make it work.The show is funny and deals with some realistic things that happen while poking fun.She should be able to do that character until her 90's. She has the ability to make a character that the kids can relate to come to life. She as we know can do other characters too.That is acting.Disney and her should come to a means to keep the series alive.Let her input into the wardrobe ideas and scripts. Look at Little Opie Taylor of Andy Griffith fame. Maybe Miley can make the industry better. Already listed as in top 100 most influential people.
