It’s only fitting that a former teen idol should sit down with today’s hottest one. Access Hollywood
brought on Brady Bunch
star Maureen McCormick as a guest correspondent to interview Hannah Montana
star, Miley Cyrus
. Maureen met up with Miley and her dad on a promotional photo shoot for the CMT Awards, which they are hosting next month. The actress formerly known as Marsha Brady sat down with Miley and Billy Ray
on yesterday’s Access Hollywood
for a relaxed and intimate interview.
Despite her years in the entertainment industry, Maureen was nervous to conduct her first interview. Miley and Billy Ray put the star right at ease, letting her know what fans they were of hers and opening about their personal lives. “We’re buddies,” smiled Miley when asked about her relationship with her father. “She’s 15 years old and I know it’s gotta be hard working with your dad,” observed Billy Ray. “I’m very aware of trying to give her room to just be Miley.”
Maureen and Miley certainly have a lot in common. Both were on hit television shows as teenagers, both grew up in the public eye, and both became a bigger success than they ever dreamed of. When asked how she keeps her head together amidst such chaos, Miley simply answered, “Just being close with my family and keeping them my main priority.” Maureen couldn’t help but bring up the main difference between Miley and herself: money. Miley reportedly brings in $3.5 million a year thanks to her work on Hannah Montana
while Maureen had barely anything to show for her years of starring on The Brady Bunch
The father and daughter wrapped up their day with Maureen by confessing their favorite Brady Bunch
moments. Billy Ray couldn’t help but bring up that memorable episode where Marsha is hit in the face with a football. One might think that after so many years of the reference being brought up that Maureen would tire of it but she laughed it right off, saying that the two should toss a football around at the CMT Awards. The CMTs will air April 14th from The Curb Event Center at Belmont University in Nashville.
