The Last Song stars, Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth on their upcoming movie, and personal life.

On transitioning to film roles: We were kind of planning when the transition would take place; when I would leave the show behind and do something else. I’ve gone these last five years of doing ‘Hannah Montana’ with everybody telling me what to do. Now, it’s kind of up to me (to pick) what I think is right for my career. So, I’ve just been going in my own direction..

..and I have to be careful, in a sense, to not lose who I am and to lose the Miley Cyrus factor by going on to do other characters. I want them to know who I am but I want to extend my audience and just continue to do what I love but also give myself new challenges and not just be the same person over and over.

Does it help to work with a really hot guy in your first dramatic filmYeah. (Talking) with Nicholas about the writing I said ‘I like animals, I like music, hot Australians’, that’s what I kind of made him write into the book so that was interesting. It was a good choice (Liam is cracking up). It worked out fine and I owe Nicholas big time!

On Liam meeting Miley’s parents: My parents are, sorry mom, but like a little loco so if you love me and my family of five and my grandma lives with us and we have ten thousand dogs so if you love me after you meet my lifestyle, then you’re good. You’re a keeper.

How is life post-Twitter versus before?: I’m a lot less on my phone. I’m a little bit more social. I have a lot more real friends than friends who are on the internet that I’m talking to which is not cool, not safe, not fun, and most likely not real. I just think everything is better when you’re not so wrapped up in that.

I think it’s kinda lame. I go hang out with my friends and they’re so busy taking pictures of what they’re doing to put on Facebook that they’re not really enjoying what they’re doing. You’re going to look back and have ten million pictures but you’re not in one of them because you weren’t having fun. You were too busy clicking away. So, I think just enjoy the moment you’re in and stop telling people about it. Just enjoy it for yourself.

On her music: Right now I’m just finishing up my record. My record will be out towards the end of the summer and I’m really excited about that because I feel like after doing this film, it was kind of a test for me to decide what I really wanted to do. I love making movies and that’s what I want to pursue.

It’s not that I don’t love music. I love music. If every film could have a part (for me) with music I would (do it). But I feel like I need to get away from that for a little while and it’s another thing that is kind of my security blanket and I don’t always want to fall back on that.

I feel that the music industry is so contrived and so political right now, I people stepped away and said ‘we’re not gonna work like this. It’s more about our art than the politics, I feel like it would go back to be respected again. Right now, I feel like it’s lost a lot of respect and I’d rather be in an industry where I feel like I can be different and do things that really inspire me.
