Miley warns kids not to start acting young

30 August 2013, 13:58

Los Angeles - Miley Cyrus has warned children not to pursue an acting career when they're young.

The 20-year-old actress - who was cast in Disney TV series Hannah Montana when she was just 11 - thinks kids should enjoy being young and carefree instead of having to cope with the pressures which comes with being a star.

Miley told NOTION magazine: "People are like, 'What's your advice to young people that want to be actors?' And I'm like, 'Don't do it', because you need to enjoy being a kid.

"People don't realise, but with so many responsibilities you hold an entire company on your back."

Difficult to handle

Miley - who has dominated the headlines this week because of her sexually provocative performance with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday night - thinks the responsibility of being a teen star while representing a big company can be difficult to handle when you make a mistake which leads to thousands of complaints from viewers.

Miley - whose father is country singer Billy Ray Cyrus - explained: "You're a kid so you're supposed to fuck up. Then when you do, it's the head of the company that ends up getting letters from a thousand different people, and that all comes down on him, which then comes down on me.

"I don't think any kid should be responsible for their personal life representing a company as big as that."
