Bill Murray used to think Miley Cyrus was a ”knucklehead” – but is now a fan.
The 64-year-old actor – who stars in new comedy movie Rock the Kasbah alongside Bruce Willis and Kate Hudson – has revealed he’s grown to admire the ‘Wrecking Ball’ singer.
Bill said: ”I’m gonna say this officially: Miley Cyrus is good. I thought she was a knucklehead, funny girl. But she can really sing and she floored everybody. I don’t want to hear any more bad rap for Miley Cyrus. Not Miley Cyrus. She’s a pro.”
However, the popular actor was less complimentary about American rap star Rick Ross, who he’s recorded a Christmas show alongside. Bill joked: ”We’ll leave [the bad rap] for Rick Ross.”
In March, Bill called on the public to let him know the whereabouts of the rapper after he failed to show up to a planned meeting.
He explained: ”We’re doing a Christmas show and my friend is friends with him so thought he would be great to sing this one song. So he came and recorded the song and … that was the last we saw of him. He didn’t show up to shoot it. If anyone out there sees a 300 lb. guy who looks like he’s supposed to be in New York two weeks ago let me know. It was a lot of fun, he just got lost. I kept saying, ‘He better be dead, otherwise he’s in trouble.’ ”
