Miley Cyrus had her second Disney guest of the week, Hilary Duff from Lizzie McGuire, on her Instagram Live show called Bright Minded, two days after Cyrus welcomed her co-star Emily Osment. Once the Hannah Montana star told Duff she was her idol, the reunion became emotional— and the reason Cyrus auditioned for Disney.

The two spoke about Duff's life as well as why she got into acting. Duff has also announced that she is working on her Happy Little Campers (diapers) and Veeda (feminine care products) product lines, and will shoot Younger once the coronavirus pandemic ends.

("I’m supposed to be shooting Younger right now but obviously we’re paused from that and hopefully we’ll pick up as soon as we’re all able to leave our house," she said.) They did not address the status of Disney+'s up-in-the-air Lizzie McGuire revival.

By the end of the call came the sweetest moment of the two when Cyrus told Duff she had influenced her career. Duff's Response back to Cyrus was just as gushing. Cyrus further said the following to Lizzie

"I wanted to say that I came to your concert when I was 11, and I told you that I wore a plaid skirt to the show because you wore a plaid skirt and Uggs and from the nosebleed seats, I was hoping you’d notice me and be like, 'girl, nice Uggs!' I don’t know what I was thinking but I was obsessed with your t-shirt.

It was bedazzled and said 'Nashville,' and I immediately went and bought a bedazzler and I stayed up jeweling everything that I owned and then"

She further went on to say "I flew to LA like almost immediately so I could audition for Disney, and I ended up getting the role, but the only reason I wanted it was so I could do whatever you did. And so really, I don’t think I gave a shit about being an actress or a singer. I just wanted to copy you no matter what. So I just wanted to say thank you again for just inspiring me, and I would never be sitting here, being able to be a light if it wasn’t for you and you showed me how to do that. So I’m just so happy I could have you on the show."

Cyrus then asked Duff if she had any message for her fans about what she was working on. Duff started her response with equally heartfelt praise of Cyrus. "First of all, you’re so sweet, and I feel like I’ve known you for such a long time, and just to hear you say that, I feel like you have been such a bright light, and you have made so many choices that have been so bold, and you have been an inspiration to all of us. And you continue to be so I can’t even believe what you’re saying to me. It’s so sweet and so kind, but really, I think that you know, I totally look to you for inspiration on how to be cool and what to wear and what you’re doing and all of this shit."
