Miley Cyrus is a household name. She’s been in showbiz her whole life starting from her big break on the Disney Channel show Hannah Montana. Since then Miley has continued acting in movies, making music, and all the while her net worth climbed high. Now the 27-year-old star reportedly out-earns her famous father, Billy Ray Cyrus.
Before she played in Hannah Montana Miley played a role in her dad’s television series, Doc. She also was in the 2003 film Big Fish. She landed her big break at the age of 11 when she got the role of Hannah Montana. Miley almost didn’t get the part because producers thought she was too young and small, but her dancing and singing skills impressed them. At the same time, Miley was also auditioning for a role in The Adventures of Sharkboy and Lavagirl in 3-D, and she almost got it but turned it down for Hannah Montana.
Hannah Montana made Miley a teen idol and released several albums of music from the show. She sold lots of merch and even went on tours. Some sites have reported that Miley made $15,000 per episode while the show was on air.
In 2008, Miley began pursuing her film career. She starred in the animated comedy Bolt. She then landed the role in a film called The Last Song playing with her now ex-husband Liam Hemsworth. In 2012, she starred in an independent film called LOL with Demi Moore. And that same year she also played the role of an undercover detective in the comedy film So Undercover.
Miley’s music has earned her millions over the years. She also earned a pretty penny from all her tours as both Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus. To give you an idea of just how lucrative her tours might be, her first tour, the Best of Both Worlds, a Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus joint tour, earned more than $60 million. Miley already has five concert tours under her belt.
On top of music and movies, Miley added another revenue stream to her resume with her role as an advisor and a judge on several seasons of the reality singing show, The Voice. She was the youngest person to land a judging role on the show.
Another stream of income for Miley has been her work with brands. One of Miley’s first collabs was her 2009 juniors’ clothing line, Miley Cyrus and Max Azria, which was sold at Walmart. Miley has also worked with other brands like Converse and Marc Jacobs, and Miley probably earned hefty checks from each of those partnerships.
According to Celebrity Net Worth, Miley Cyrus’s net worth is $160 million.
