Miley Cyrus: Justin Gaston Is My Best Friend

The Hannah Montana star dishes about her relationship


Sure, she’s got her own hit TV show, a movie due out this summer and a memoir hitting shelves this spring, but in many ways, Miley Cyrus is just an average, gum-chewing, boy-crazy 16-year-old girl.

In the May issue of Teen Vogue (on stands April 14) Cyrus opens up about what her double life is like – even her relationship with 20-year-old model Justin Gaston.

“I believe in love at first sight,” she tells the magazine. “It just hasn’t happened to me.”

Instead, Hannah Montana star says that the first time she saw Gaston, “I walked right by him. Love doesn’t come from attraction, but from somewhere deeper. [Justin] is my best friend.” And lately, her colleague too: The couple has been writing and producing music together in her home studio.

Of course, it’s not all work and no play for the pair. Cyrus says that she and her beau love Disney animation and, at the time of the interview, planned to curl up and watch Alice and Wonderland that evening.

While she admits to being a Netflix fanatic, she and Gaston hit the theater too – even though he may want to think again before seeing a movie starring Cyrus’s apparent girl crush, Scarlett Johansson. “She is, honestly, the most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen,” she says. “I went to see He’s Just Not That Into You with Justin and I was covering his eyes.”

Justin may want to avoid taking Cyrus to flicks with the “so adorable” Jude Law, or her other crushes, Gerard Butler and Javier Bardem, but he doesn’t need to worry about her drooling through Twilight. “Girls aren’t really in love with Rob [Pattinson],” says Cyrus. “They’re in love with [his character] Edward!
