Melissa Joan Hart Feels Pity for Miley Cyrus
Former child star Melissa Joan Hart sympathizes with teen idol Miley Cyrus, insisting she would not want to find fame "in this day and age". The actress made her acting debut at the age of three in a TV commercial, and went on to become a massive star at 15 with her hit 1990s TV series "Clarissa Explains It All", followed up with "Sabrina, The Teenage Witch".
Hart is pleased she's not growing up in the spotlight nowadays, as she's convinced social networking sites are "dangerous" for teen stars. She tells Parade magazine, "I would not want to be a teenager in this day and age because of how much access the public has to people's lives. There's no mystery left, there's no hiding anything."
"When you have Twitter and you can put things directly out to the world, it's dangerous. Especially when you're a teenager or in your early 20s and you think you're invincible and you think everything you have to say is brilliant. It's a tricky world right now."
"Miley Cyrus and all of them, they've got a lot to handle. And we all go through it. We pretty much all went through a crazy period in our teens and 20s, but it wasn't on record."
Cyrus has found herself at the center of controversy in recent months with a bong smoking scandal and saucy snaps leaking online.
