Hannah Montana: The Movie hits theaters April 10, and J-14 recently got to hang out with stars Miley Cyrus, Billy Ray Cyrus, Jason Earles, Emily Osment and Lucas Till. Get the juicy 411 below!
Q: Where there any bloopers on set?
Jason: The thing I was most nervous about in the movie was the scene with the ostrich. I knew I was in trouble when the animal handler gave me the leash and said, "Don't pull on that, he doesn't like it." I was like, "Please dear God, don't let it bite me." And the very first day it bit me right in the face!
Miley: And they used the part where you got bit in the face too!
Q: Miley, have you ever thought of making a pure country album?
Miley: I would like to do that at some point 'cause that's where I'm from. I was really happy to go back to Nashville and write. The song "The Climb" has a little country vibe to it. A lot of those songs in the flick do because it went so well with the theme of the movie.
Q: How is Miley different in real life from on screen?
Emily: When we made the movie we went back to Franklin, Miley's hometown, and I got to see her farm and where she grew up. The movie is sort of parallel to that because it's about her going back home and regaining her roots.
Jason: I think Miley, at least my relationship with her, is very similar in real life to the show. I look at her as an annoying little sister sometimes.
Miley: That you want to beat.
Emily: And do!
Q: What kind of roles are you looking for after Hannah Montana ends?
Emiy: I've been playing this character for almost four years now, so it's natural for me to want to play something different. I think everybody does.
Miley: This summer, I'm working on a movie that Nicholas Sparks wrote for me. You never hear that the movie was written before the book. It's a weird way to do it. But, he wrote the movie before he wrote the book with me in mind. I've always been lucky to play parts that relate to me and this doesn't at all. I can actually see if I'm a good actress or not, or if I'm just good at playing myself.
Lucas: A year ago, the last thing I thought I'd be doing is the Hannah Montana movie. This is a lot different than what I would normally go for. I definitely want to go for something more edgy, something that my friends back home can watch.
Emily: I want to be slaughtered! I think it would be fun.
Miley: I want to stay alive in pretty much 90% of my movies. Slaughtering isn't exactly what I'm going for, but I will play edgy for sure.
Q: Lucas, what was your screen test like with Miley?
Lucas: When I found out I was going out to L.A. to screen test, I was so nervous. I didn't eat for a week. I was expecting a different attitude from Miley, and she walked in and was just a normal, sweet girl, and it made it that much easier.
Miley: I was on my best behavior. I was doing all of my commenting on texts to my mom, like I said, "He is hot! We should pick him!" Another guy that came in was a friend of mine. I was just looking at him thinking, "I love you so much, but no because you're my friend." I worked with him on Big Fish when I was eight-years-old, so it was just weird.
