‘Hannah Montana’ Star Jason Earles: Hanging Out with Miley Cyrus Is Like ‘Hanging Out with a Dude’

Not only does Miley Cyrus have the best of both worlds, she is the best of both worlds.

So says her TV brother, Jason Earles, who feels comfortable enough around the superstar poptart not to curb his bodily functions – and vice versa.

CAPTIONS: “Ten years from now when we look back at ‘Hannah Montana,’ I hope it’s viewed in a positive way,” Jason (above) tells us.

“Ten years from now when we look back at ‘Hannah Montana,’ I hope it’s viewed in a positive way,” Jason (above) tells us.

Interviewed on WZAP Radio, Jason – who plays Jackson Stewart on the mega-hit Disney Channel show Hannah Montana – recounts a typical day on-set with Miley.

“She’s sort of like – and don’t take this the wrong way, I hope she doesn’t take this the wrong way – she’s sort of like hanging out with a dude,” he tells host Zachary Sang.

“You can’t say anything to shock her. We spend more time burping and farting around each other on the set – I think people would be just shocked with how non-shockable she is.

“She’s also cool to just joke around with. We play a lot of Guitar Hero in her dressing room. When we have breaks, we run out and get sushi together,” adds Jason.

Typical bother-sister-like relationship, you say?

Well, what if we told you Jason is old enough to be 16-year-old Miley’s dad?

That’s right, de- spite the fact that Jason is listed as 26 years old on his Wikipedia page, in a January 2007 USA Today interview, he gave his age as 29 – which would make him 31 today.  (And if his IMDb page is to be believed, he’ll turn 32 next month.)

Nonetheless, Jason isn’t about to ‘fess up to being a trinegenarian.

“The only thing you’ll get out of me, sir, is that I’m 18, 19 on the show,” he tells Zach.

“I actually am a couple of years older than that in real life. But to me, age is just a number. It’s sort of all about how you feel.

“And as far as the show goes, I play the older brother. I think I do a pretty good job at it and I think people like it and that’s all that’s important to me.”
