In a breezy USA Today feature, novelist Nicholas Sparks was interviewed alongside teen idol Miley Cyrus–talking about their collaboration in The Last Song.
The film is an adaptation of Sparks’ bestselling novel, but Cyrus offhandedly noted she hadn’t finished the book, resulting in a special fluffy film feature moment: “‘I’ve only gotten through part of The Last Song,’ Cyrus says sheepishly. ‘Because the movie started first.’ Sparks feigns being stricken, but then says: ‘I don’t know if I ever watched a Hannah Montana show. … Nothing personal. My daughters do every day.'”
Undoubtedly, the article will inspire some action in the GalleyCat comments section, as Sparks criticizes the pigeonholing of his work as “romance” and teaches Cyrus the difference between melodrama and drama. Check out all of Sparks’ adapted novels here. (Via Bookishly Fabulous)
