Moore also tells MTV News that the teen comedy’s ongoing release delays have been ‘a tough thing.’
Although it’s been awhile since we’ve had any updates about a release date for Miley Cyrus and Ashley Greene’s delayed teen comedy “LOL,” anticipation continues to build for the film, which will mark a departure for former Disney star Cyrus and Greene, who is best known for her role as sweet-natured psychic Alice Cullen in the “Twilight Saga” series.
But when MTV News recently caught up with Demi Moore, who plays Cyrus’ mom in the film, we got some scoop about her experience with the singer/actress, as well as some dish on what we can expect from Greene’s performance.
“[Cyrus] is great, she did great,” Moore said during a promotional run for her upcoming financial thriller “Margin Call.” “I really loved the movie; I loved working with her and the director. They just put it on pause because they had another film they were focusing on. It’s a tough thing when you have a movie you’re looking forward to coming out,” she added of waiting on the film’s release date.
With regard to Greene’s performance, Moore teased that moviegoers can expect to see a very different side of the “Breaking Dawn” star.
“She’s saucy, she’s really saucy,” Moore said with a smile, which prompted her “Margin Call” co-star Simon Baker to chime in.
“I love it when you say that,” Baker said. “Is she sassy too?”
“Sassy and saucy,” Moore promised.
“LOL” is based on the successful 2008 French film “Laughing Out Loud.” The American version is a coming-of-age story about a group of young people — led by Cyrus’ wild-child character Lola — trying to navigate high school peer pressure and romance in a tech-savvy era. The cast also includes Thomas Jane (“Hung”), Gina Gershon (“Rescue Me”), Jay Hernandez (“Takers”) and Austin Nichols (“One Tree Hill”).
