Getting to Know Miley Cyrus

She may be one of the biggest names in showbiz, but when she got her start she didn't bring in the big money you'd think she would have. 

In a new sit-down interview with Elle Magazine, Miley Cyrus may have just shocked her fans from her "Hannah Montana" days.

The former Disney Channel child star claims she may have been the star of the show, but was paid the least of the cast.

"I mean, at one point - they'll probably kill me for saying it - I was probably the least paid person on my [Hannah Montana] cast because I didn't know any better," Cyrus told the magazine. "I was just like, I can be on Disney! Yeah, I want to do it! My name was Miley on my show, but I didn't own my name - we didn't think about it like that."

The hit show also stared Emily Osment as Lilly, Jason Earles as Miley's brother Jackson and her real-life father Billy Ray Cyrus as her TV dad, Robby Ray.

Cyrus played high school student by day and hit teen singing sensation Hannah Montana by night. 

The show became a hit that spurred a line of clothing and dolls for fans, live concert tours and "Hannah Montana: The Movie."

Cyrus went on to say that, "My mom started understanding how many people take advantage of a child, so she hired smart people to protect me in that way. I'm happy that when I was younger, people protected me and put me in a position where I can now control my music."

Cyrus has taken what started as a children's television show gig and turned it into a career. 

She has reinvented herself after her Disney years, with an edgy, more adult persona, with hits like "Wrecking Ball" and "Party in the U.S.A." and serves as one of the mentors on this season of NBC's "The Voice."

Cyrus is also appearing in Woody Allen's new Amazon Studio series "Crisis in Six Scenes."

"We tried to put into every episode something genuine and telling from our lives, and make a show that was personal to us, and that had jokes too! I’m really happy that it connected with an audience for so long. It’s a special thing, I think."

The show debuted in 2010 and has won six Emmys. According to The Hollywood Reporter, numerous celebrity guests have been on the show, including Matthew Broderick and Neil Patrick Harris.

"Adventure Time changed the definition of what a kids' TV series could be, and it’s had a resounding impact upon popular culture around the world," Cartoon Network chief content officer Rob Sorcher said. "Cartoon Network Studios is proud to have brought together this group of brilliant artists and animators who helped make Adventure Time one of the most critically acclaimed TV series of a generation."

The show is currently in its eighth season.
