Miley Cyrus for Cosmopolitan Magazine

Posted on January 29, 2013

Miley bares her soul and her underboob to Cosmo:


Miley Cyrus covers the March 2013 issue of Cosmopolitan magazine photographed by Matthias Vriens-McGrath in Roberto Cavalli.


On her fiance Liam Hemsworth: “I’ll literally look at him and be like ‘You are hot, dear god!’ The other day, I turned on the pool heater and it was steaming, and he walked outside and took off his clothes and jumped in the pool. I was like, ‘I’m gonna faint–the hottest guy of my life is in a steaming pool. This looks like a Playgirl shoot.’ So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone. My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, ‘Who’s that? He is so hot!’ That’s my hubby!”

On her dream wedding: “I feel the bigger the wedding, the more it becomes a target for people to ruin. So we just want it to be small, with the people who we’d take bullets for. I don’t want to be looking at those photos and see people that I wish hadn’t been there. C’mon, I can’t even get coffee without a million paparazzi following me, so I don’t know why anyone thinks I’m going to have this huge, extravagant wedding. That is so not who I am.”

We find nothing objectionable here. No, really. She sounds fairly fun and down to earth, in a shallow, celebrity kind of way.

The pictures? Enh. They’re all right. We weren’t going to get couture face out of her. At least she’s got some personality.

We don’t know… we feel like we’re being too kind, but really, she looks cute. And she’s right. Her husband-to-be is hot.

    Not bad for a Cosmo shoot/interview. She looks cute.

    • mjude

      i totally agree.  i love the dior suit.  the girl really is harmless

      • Alyssa

        That’s my favorite pic as well. She seems fairly put together for someone who grew up in the industry.

  • FrayedMachine

    She reminds me of a baby P!nk. Not a bad shoot. 

    •ía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

      Nailed it!

  • drdirection

    she does not bug me the way I would expect her to.  her dad sure bugs the hell out of me though

  • Pants_are_a_must

    Still getting overly strong Robyn vibes from her look.

    • imspinningaround

      That’s a problem?  If you’re gonna steal, steal from the best.

      • Pants_are_a_must

        It annoys me that Robyn is constantly ridiculed for her look. It also annoys me that Miley Cyrus is somehow still more relevant for god knows what reason.

    • DeebaCee

      P!nk and Robyn had a baby… and that baby was Miley

  • carpediva

    I think she looks pretty amazing here; good for her!

    Somewhat off topic, but on the “my man is so hot I can’t believe it” comments (true story, btw!): absolutely there’s nothing wrong with thinking or saying that! But (and this is prolly just me), whenever I hear stuff like that (which celebs seem to say a lot!) or see these impossibly beautiful celebrity couples (Tom & Gisele, for example) I often find myself wondering: how many of these relationships would last if suddenly there was some sort of tragic accident that affected their appearance? (Of course I have specific couples who I wonder about more than others!)

    • j_anson

      Well… to be fair, any major change in what a person brings to a relationship is going to put some strain on it. If you marry a guy who’s incredibly intelligent because you love his witty banter, and some kind of tragic accident significantly reduced his intelligence, would that relationship last? Of course we’d all like to think it would, but…

      •ía-Gavello/1253586868 Lucía Gavello

        I agree, besides, at least she’s being honest and not pretending that his hotness is not even a factor, they’re young and I’m glad that, since they’re getting married, they actually have the hots for each other.

      • carpediva

        Totally agree. Though methinks if more people (not just celebrities) put a higher premium on incredible intelligence and wit vs. hotness, we might be happier in the long run. (I’m not trying to front like I haven’t been dick whipped, btw. I’m jus’ sayin’.) :)

        • Marie Ee

          i really like the phrase dick whipped.

  • SophiaPehawkins

    She’s not lying. Liam Hemsworth is a class-A hottie.

  • Meg0GayGuys6

    I can’t hate- if I were her, I’d imagine my life as a Playgirl shoot too.

    Love the black jacket/dress thingy!  I’d wear that while humming 9-5, putting that pool steamer on, and taking in the wonder of my good fortune.

  • Introspective

    hair and makeup look pretty good, and the sound bites, while not overly intellectual, do not cause the involuntary teeth grinding that many celeb interviews do for me. clothes arent revolutionary, but this is cosmo so im not expecting much.

    overall, this works.

  • Beth G

    I think they are married… secretly.

    And I will never be able to look at her and not think Hannah Montana.

    • Jecca2244

      I do too. a couple I will never understand mostly because he seems insanely down to earth. and she, well, doesn’t. I wonder what she is moving her image to next. little punkier? I like her hair and makeup here, but hardly ever like it when she isn’t styled to the max.

    • Vickiefantastico

      Yeah, I think they’re married too. I read an article where he called her his “wife”. She’s calling him “hubby” here. My husband and I didn’t call each other that until we were actually married. Oh well, I hope it works out for them!

  • charlotte

    Her best friend doesn’t know what her fiancé looks like? They must be so close!

    • amf0001

      maybe it was an ass shot

    • FrayedMachine

      I just read that blip. My jaw dropped a little. I’m assuming that it was because the room was apparently steamy and/or maybe you couldn’t see his face or something? I’m hoping? I just… what?

      • j_anson

        Something like that was pretty much my conclusion. Actually if he was swimming it’s totally plausible that his face wasn’t recognizable.

  • Sobaika

    They sucked all the fun and edge out of her style. I guess that’s what you get with Cosmo but still.

    • eowyn_of_rohan

      And she really IS fun.  Not something I thought I’d ever say about her three or four years ago, but she seems to have grown up better than expected.

    • imperfectlaura

      If I read reports about this correctly, she was styled by Rachel Zoe.

    • purpleprose78

      I’m liking her more and more.  She’s got spunk or something.  And her style is edgy and fun when we see her in the on street pictures.  Sure she makes mistakes, but she is also not plastic (if that makes sense.)   She seems like the anti-Taylor Swift or something.

  • thecitysleeps

    She my favourite Disney girl because she seems fairly down to earth and real and does not insist on looking and sounding perfect Disney material.  And I love her hair.  And her personality in this shoot.  

  • nannypoo

    I understand how she became famous, but why is she still important? Does she do anything anymore? She seems to be one of those people who is famous for being famous. She looks cute, though.

    • Ruminum

      She has a new album coming out.

  • Sam Smith

    Like the Dior photo.  And, I’m almost pulling for her, but getting married at 19 or 20 or whatever age she is is a recipe for disaster. Even if he is super hot.  

    • formerlyAnon

       *Especially* if he is super hot.

    • StelledelMare

       Yep, that’s why I give them 2 years tops. And I think that’s being overly generous.

    • FlamingJune1967

      Ummm, celebrity marriages aren’t exactly known for their longevity – at any age. 

    • Amelia Logan

      They have been dating for a while (a few years?) and it’s not like Liam doesn’t have options. I’m impressed that they didn’t get hitched immediately after the engagement. I don’t think it will last forever but maybe they work.

  • Trisha26

    The cover is pure desperation. And it makes me sad that a magazine aimed at women (yes, even Cosmo, and yes I realize no one forced her to pose) exploits them like that. I prefer Chris Hemsworth.

  • j_anson

    Nah, I think you’re right. I kind of love the growling photo.

  • Kimmu

    She is probably hellaciously fun to get drunk with, so I can’t hate her. I think she looks pretty damn good here. Her body is amazing and she’s managing to have personality in a Cosmo shoot.

    And if I was engaged to a Hemsworth, I’d probably find religion so I could thank God every day for it.

    • Amelia Logan

      If I was engaged to liam hemsworth I would also take shirtless pictures of him to show off on my phone. lol

  • Kim Brightman

    And her brother-in-law to be is even hotter!

    • ashtangajunkie

      Preach, sister!

      • SRQkitten

        Amen on that one! srq

  • stubbornthoughts

    This is actually a really decent spread on her. Not a huge fan of the cover shot, but I like the other two pics. I prefer this toned down style on her, makes her far more likable for me.

    And Liam is super hot, though I prefer Thor. So good for you, girl.

  • kalisa

    Love her hair in the cover shot. 

  • Nancy Dunn

    For someone who has never faked anything, it sure looks like they faked her body length – her trunk looks very elongated, from what I remember about her. I do love that Dior picture, with the face. So much better than those pouty lip or faux-sexy vacuousness most stars are compelled to give in front of any camera.

  • alyce1213

    What does she do now, other than tweet?  Perhaps it’s my age, or her shallow celebrity, but I just can’t with her.  
    Every time I see photos of her or read an interview, I find her desperately seeking attention and rather D-U-M-B.

  • l_c_ann

    So this tasteful and refined cover is what Joanna Coles signed off on for her new job as Editor in Chief of Cosmo? 

    Oh, Oh, OH, Joanna! (Must read!)  I think I need some new punctuation marks!

    • YousmelllikeAnnaWintour

      You know, I still feel bad that Joanna Coles is with Cosmo now.  I don’t know why.  I don’t even know the woman.  But I feel like I’m irrationally disappointed in her.

  • Anathema_Device

    I find her uninteresting, but I do I like her new style iteration. The hair works.

  • lbl

    This is nice, but what is she promoting?

    • Ruminum

      A new album.

  • Tatiana Luján

    This pictures look so cheap-

  • Rand Ortega

    Cute, kicky, fun. Though not in the same league style or talent wise, she does put me in mind of Cyndi Lauper– navigatin’ the PR machine but still doin’ her own thing. I respect her for that.

  • BrooklynBomber

    I like this haircut on her a lot.

  • MaryanneGirl

    Personal pet peeve that makes me RAGE: the word “hubby”, and any use of it, and when people call someone their “hubby” before they’re married. He’s not your husband.  Get over yourself. 

    Sorry, I’m sure she’s perfectly lovely. I just freaking hate that.

  • formerlyAnon

    Good for her, continuing to get some attractive photos of herself in circulation. She has a lot of years of “future regrets” photos to make up for.

    Even those who don’t like her shorter hair (I do) have to admit it’s short-circuited some of the tackier thing she used to do with it.

    She sounds downright normal for someone who’s been a celebrity of sorts since she was in her early, early teens. 

  • Little_Olive

    Oh yeah, a hot husband guarantees a great marriage.  

  • Imasewsure

    Think she’s cute here and I don’t mind her at all (not a Disney person and haven’t really heard her music so both help I guess). Huge upgrade based on husband choice and personality too

  • Judy_J

    The snarly face is cute…she’s got nice teeth.

  • shelley514

    Miley looks fantastic in all this stuff.  Her hair . . . luvs!  Major snaps.

  • LesYeuxHiboux

    I like that they left her tummy freckles intact. The styling all seems very Sharon Stone, but the blazing unnaturally white teeth have me thinking Guy Smiley. 

  • mightbewrong

    I thought I couldn’t stand her, but I’m totally charmed. The snarly picture’s great.

  • Candigirl1968

    The pics aren’t bad.  I wish she’d adopt the idea (sleek, modern, minimalist), because I think it would go well with her new hair and be a fresher look than what she tends to sport on the red carpet.

  • CallMeJane

    I love that she has her phone with her while she’s in the pool. 

  • foodycatAlicia

    I really like her lipstick in the Marc Jacobs blouse.

  • Kate4queen

    She looks happy, healthy and has a sense of humor, all great attributes for someone who came out of the Disney Hot house. I’ll always have a soft spot for her because of Hannah Montana, which my daughter LOVED and wasn’t bad as far a girlie role models went!

  •!/Space_Kitty Space Kitty

    Holy crap.  She really does look cute here – I’m thinking personal best.

  • mmc2315

    Cute.  The cut and color suit her.

  • kolokOlchik

    She looks better than she had in years

  • BigWhiteGrannyPanties

    I want that chunky gold necklace.  It could be my retirement.

  • sweetlilvoice

    An improvement over her wearing a raccoon skull necklace days definitely. 

  • greyhoundgirl

    She’s going through that “I’m growing up and proving that I’m sexy” thing that stars who began their career very young often go through.  I think she looks good and I respect her experimentation and outspokenness.

  • Pamela

    “Your best sex EVER” headline for the 10,473rd time on the cover of Cosmo.  Think you’ve gone to that well waaay too often.  This magazine is a waste of wood pulp.

    • snarkykitten

      “your best sex ever – put him first”

      every Cosmo mag ever

  • guest2visits

    A perfectly typical Cosmo cover.  Which actually makes Miley look better then the typical Miley.   Not hard to do.

    “That is so not who I am”… over-exposed on a mag known for over-exposure and constant-tweet-contact with the universe at large
    a teen marriage and anything she can think of to attract ‘millions of paparazzi’ – that spells quiet, shy, little introspective gal.

  • LeBarron

    “Miley bares her soul and her underboob to Cosmo.”

    Don’t forget the nostrils.  Yikes.  Chin down a bit, dear. 

    I don’t really have a strong opinion on Miley, but I’ll give her this:  she snagged one hot piece.

  • Zippypie

    I’m still digging her hair.  And her hubby-to-be.  Digging Cosmo?  Well, that’s another story.

  • marilyn

    What a shame.  So, this is what she wants to be when she grows up.  It is sad that she needs money this badly.  To be quite honest, she is a rather plain girl who has done everything possible to make herself look like Anna Nicole Smith.  ANS did not have any talent, and as an ex-stripper, she used the only thing she had to make money-her surgically enhanced body.  MC has talent.  She does not need to go this route.  What is the matter with her?  

  • Sally Brownson

    Aren’t they kind of young to be getting married? Just sayin’…

  • snarkykitten

    a bigger target to ruin? da fuq? does she have some crazy ass relatives she doesn’t want showing up?

  • libraangel

    Really, Liam? Really? This is what you want? (I think you could do better, but maybe she really does have a nice personality?!)

  • Eclectic Mayhem

    My age is showing but I’m getting an Annie Lennox vibe from that Dior shot.  A good Annie Lennox vibe.

  • bitchybitchybitchy

    The cover shot is standard Cosmo. The Dior is cute on MIley, while I can’t imagine anyone actually wearing that Marc Jacobs number anywhere but on a runway.
    And yes, Liam Helmsworth is hot.

  • Steph Foster

    She gets to marry a Hemsworth AND make out with Daniel Grayson in her new movie? I hate her.

  • quiltrx

    The coatdress is awesome, and that’s my favorite pic of her.  She looks ‘real’ for lack of a better word.

  • anotherkate

    You know, I don’t dislike this chickie at all. I think she has actually done an admirable job turning into a real human after exiting the Disney machine. Plus, style-wise I think she’s finally coming into her own. Love the hair, and frankly I want to know her Pilates instructor because DAMN, those abs!

  • Lisa M. (ReVoir) Kramp

    Nice shoot. I find her much less offensive now that she’s older.

  • kathryn_dc

    OK, body!!

  • notterriblybitter

    I love her hair and makeup. I realize you probably want to mix things up a bit when you’re getting your picture taken constantly, but I still think she should take that second picture with her whenever she’s getting her makeup done and say “This, please.”

  • ccm800

    As she grows up she grows on me. 

  • Lola67

    I think she looks great. So comfortable and relaxed.

  • jsm9327

    I can’t understand the uproar about the “boobiness” of the pictures.  She is of age, she looks cute–so what?  Cosmo covers have always been “boobalicious”.  I even recall a Cosmo tutorial way back in the 70’s about how to use tape to achieve the famous Cosmo cleavage.

  • Sarah Caponigro

    I feel like she is turning into a cool grown up. Did I just say that?

  • gg80302

    I like her more and more…

  • LilyPad

    So I took a photo and made it the background on my phone. My best friend grabbed my phone and was like, ‘Who’s that? He is so hot!’ That’s my hubby!”
    Is she saying that her best friend doesn’t know what her husband looks like…? Strange. Especially since he is also a celebrity…
