Miley Cyrus blames Hannah Montana for giving her body dysmorphia

“I'm this fragile little girl playing a 16-year-old in a wig and a ton of make-up.”

We all grew up watching Hannah Montana and wishing we could BE her.

But Miley doesn't have such great memories of being on set.

Miles chatted to Marie Claire about how she thought playing Hannah Montana was bad for her body image.

"From the time I was 11 it was, 'You're a pop star! That means you have to be blonde, and you have to have long hair, and you have to put on some glittery tight thing," she explained.

"Meanwhile, I'm this fragile little girl playing a 16-year-old in a wig and a ton of make-up."

Miley even reckoned that the show "probably caused some body dysmorphia because I had been made pretty every day for so long, and then when I wasn't on that show, it was like, 'Who the f**k am I?'"

If you're not clued into what body dysmorphia is, it's a mental illness where you obsess about a flaw in your appearance and you're ashamed to be seen by anyone - despite the 'flaw' being minor or imagined. Yikes.

Luckily Miley is completely comfortable in her own skin now (doesn't the world know it?) and has bigger fish to fry: "My dream was never to sell lip gloss. My dream is to save the world."
