According to The Hollywood Reporter, Greene will play “a high school bad girl,” presumably a classmate of Miley’s. Cyrus is going through a break up with her “more sexually experienced boyfriend” (perhaps he could not be tamed), while her mother (Moore) is moving on from her divorce. Jane will play Miley’s father.
For someone who’s 23 and typecast as a high school student, Greene is making the most of it. She’s also playing a rebellious high school teenager in the comedy Butter (with Hugh Jackman, Jennifer Garner, and Modern Family‘s Ty Burrell). Do we want to see her graduate in Hollywood, or do we like the idea that she might channel some of her Alice Cullen maturity into other “teen” roles and make them likeable? Emma Stone can’t carry that burden alone.
