Miley Cyrus is a force to be reckoned with. After becoming a household name on Hannah Montana in 2006, the Nashville native has blossomed into an A-list movie star and singer who consistently keeps her fans on their toes.
From her on-again, off-again relationship with
Liam Hemsworth, to her emotional albums and jaw-dropping music videos, revisit Cyrus’ journey to fame!
Role of a Lifetime
Best of both worlds! Miley Cyrus scored the lead part in Disney’s
Hannah Montana in 2006 at age 13. The breakout role skyrocketed the Nashville native into stardom.

The child star was cast in
The Last Song in 2009, a love story inspired by Nicholas Sparks’ novel of the same name. She fell for her costar and on-screen love interest, Liam Hemsworth, and the duo had an on-again, off-again relationship before getting engaged for the second time in 2016. In 2009, she also starred in Hannah Montana: The Movie and returned to her roots in Nashville.

Hunger Games actor. On a brighter note, Cyrus dropped her album Bangerz at the end of 2013, which featured catchy tracks such as “Wrecking Ball” and “We Can’t Stop.”
