Miley Cyrus has revealed that she feared for her life performing stunts for new action-comedy So Undercover.
The former Hannah Montana star, who plays an FBI agent going undercover at a college sorority in the film, told Digital Spy that her father tried to talk her out of filming a precarious action set-piece.
“In the opening scene, I’m dangling off the side of a building in New Orleans which is 100% real. I am so scared of heights. Going up an escalator freaks me out!” Cyrus said.
“In the first shot, I was supposed to stand up on this flowerpot to climb on to the side of the building and the flowerpot tipped over. I was so scared.
“My dad had his arms wrapped around his chair and he was like, ‘No, you can’t do this!’ I was literally walking on the side of the building, which is one of the craziest things I’ve ever done. It was just nuts.”
Asked to name her favourite action hero, Cyrus said: “Angelina Jolie is the sexiest superhero of all time who can kick ass. She always looks amazing, and is so believable. Wanted is one of my favourite movies.
“What girl doesn’t want to be flipping a car while giving the hottest look to camera? She’s like, the coolest chick in the world!”
