Miley Cyrus is definitely gaining an “entourage” with her So Undercover co-star Jeremy Piven. Jeremy, 45, shared that he and his 18-year-old co-star sparked a friendship while they were filming in Louisiana.
“I think I must be an 18-year-old girl because we got along really well,” Jeremy told E! Online’s Marc Malkin at the Sundance Film Festival. “It was just so much fun. I had so much fun with her and we had great chemistry. It was really really weird — we’re like polar opposites. She’s kind of amazing.”
The Entourage star also defended the teen queen from all the attacks against her — stemming from her bong experimentation late last year.
“You know, you can judge her, but what were you doing when you were 18? […] There’s nothing pretentious about her. She’s this force. She loves to laugh.”
The infamous video showed Miley smoking a legal herbal hallucinogen, salvia, from a bong.
Working with a teen superstar has finally garnered Jeremy some attention from his young nieces and nephews.
“Right now they think I work for the bus company because they saw me on an ad for Entourage on a bus, so they asked me if I work for the bus company,” he said. “I said, ‘No, Uncle Jeremy doesn’t work for the bus company.’ So finally [now that I’m in a movie with Miley] I’ll get a little respect.”
Sounds like Miley has a true friend in her co-star!
