Now, Miley Cyrus has had an interesting life so far.

Considering she's just twenty-eight-years-old, it's pretty remarkable everything the star has done.

But this week the star has opened up about a part of her life away from the glitz and glam...

And she made a shocking confession.

Miley Cyrus burst onto our screens as Hannah Montana on the popular Disney show.

The then thirteen-year-old starred alongside her country singer dad, Billy Ray Cyrus, in the hit show Hannah Montana, which debuted in 2006. The star played a grade-school student who lives a double life as an international pop star.

The series had a 4-year run...


Until much to fans' disappointment, filming stopped in late 2010.

Cyrus also starred in the film version of the show...


Just a year before the hit Disney show came to an end, the show took to the box office, seeing Cyrus star alongside her Hannah Montana cast in Hannah Montana: The Movie.

After becoming a teen sensation, the singer quickly showed signs that she wanted to move on from her teenage Disney persona.

Following her Disney stardom, the star featured in a Vanity Fair photo-shoot which some accused of being "provocative" - the first sign that the star was becoming restless in her Hannah Montana role. At the time, she issued an apology for the controversial shoot.

But the star later retracted her apology for the controversial Vanity shoot...

In 2018, a decade on from the photo-shoot, the singer took to Twitter to say that she's no longer sorry about the shoot.

Following her Disney fame, the star has enjoyed a successful music career.

The singer released 2 albums while starring in Hannah Montana - producing several singles, including the popular 2009 hits "Party in the U.S.A.," and "The Climb."

In the same year that we waved goodbye to Hannah Montana, the star began her on-off relationship with Liam Hemsworth.

The 2 first met on the set of Nicholas Sparks's film, The Last Song, in 2009, where they starred opposite each other as love interests.

Of course, we all know how that ended...

They may have been one of Hollywood's most high profile couples, but just 8 months after tying the knot, the pair called it quits.

And of course...

Miley also dated old flame Cody Simpson - but it seems that didn't work out either.

Soon after her Disney-induced fame, the pop powerhouse began to drastically move away from her PG persona.

We well and truly kissed goodbye to Hannah Montana when the star debuted her bleach blonde pixie cut in 2012, marking a change of direction for the singer...

It was definitely clear that Cyrus's Disney days were behind her when she released this music video...

The star's single, "We Can't Stop," from her fourth album Bangerz, showed us a different side to the then twenty-one-year-old.

Around this time, the star attracted headlines for her rebellious antics, too.

From smoking marijuana to getting tatted up, she was hot tabloid news.

And many dubbed her as just another Disney star who had gone off the rails.

But she managed to survive it all...

But even though Miley has been on our screens for well over a decade now, it seems as though there's one thing we didn't know about her.

Her name.

Now fans are going crazy over the revelation...

Miley Cyrus' real name is not actually Miley...

Yep, we're being serious.

It is in fact, Destiny Hope Cyrus.

You learn something new every day.
