BEVERLY HILLS, California — Lindsay Lohan was there once. So was Christina Ricci. Jodie Foster made the right choices, Tatum O'Neal made the wrong ones, and Drew Barrymore was able to correct her course after years of disappointment.
These days, there's one question on everyone's mind when it comes to teen superstar Miley Cyrus: Where does she go from here? Despite all the rumors, Miley will not be turning herself into a chipmunk.
"Everyone's said that today," she said of persistent Web chatter that she'll be providing the voice of Britney the Chipette in this year's "Squeakuel" to the "Alvin and the Chipmunks" movie. "No, I hadn't even heard that rumor yet."
Miley told us that "Hannah Montana: The Movie," which hits theaters April 10, will be her last fun-loving teen role for some time onscreen, and high-pitched voice-overs in CGI cartoons don't fit into that master plan. "I want to get some edgy roles, not 'Alvin and the Chipmunks,' " she said.
Along those same lines, Miley shot down the rumor that she was starring in a reimagining of the silly, lighthearted '80s classic "Adventures in Babysitting." "I'm not in that movie either," she laughed. "I guess I get secretly cast in a lot of things."
Instead, Miley will begin shooting Nicholas Sparks' "The Last Song" soon, based on a book and script that were tailor-made to help her grow into adulthood. And beyond that, Miley said there were only two plans in her immediate future: Put "Hannah Montana" behind her and follow the path that made Foster, Ricci and others into credible adult stars. "I'm definitely going for more edgy roles right now," she explained.
