Yes, we know, Miley Cyrus is still technically engaged to Liam Hemsworth. But how many of you actually think that this celebrity couple will really make it down the aisle? His people are reportedly already pushing for him to cut his fiancée loose because they think that her wild new image is only going to destroy his acting career.
Miley Cyrus has made it very clear that although she’s still only 20 years old, she’s not the same little girl that used to play Hannah Montana on the Disney Channel. Judging by her raunchy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards last week, among her other risqué behavior, Cyrus obviously wants the world to know that she’s all grown up.
So, this is our relationship intervention for Miley Cyrus. To really break free of her child-star past, we think that she should be with someone older and more mature, someone a little more like-minded. Here are our top picks for older guys that would be good for Cyrus.
Jared Leto – Cyrus and Leto would make a good celebrity couple because there’s just something kind of bold and rebellious about this 41-year-old actor and musician. Like Cyrus, Leto has dabbled in both acting and music, and a lot of younger women want a sugar daddy that can mentor them. Plus, Leto has already jumped to publicly defend Cyrus after she was slammed for her sexually explicit performance at the VMAs, so he clearly gets where she’s coming from. On a side note, Jared Leto is single.
Johnny Depp – We already know that this 50-year-old A-lister has a thing for younger women—his current girlfriend, Amber Heard, is only 27. As handsome as Depp is, there’s just something a little strange about him, but he’s always pulled that off, which is something Miley Cyrus seems to be struggling with. If she and Johnny Depp were a celebrity couple, she could learn a thing or two from him about how to make an impact without going too far.
Robert Downey Jr. – This 48-year-old actor has struggled with substance abuse and rehab, but has managed to make a successful career comeback. We’re not necessarily saying that that’s where Miley Cyrus is headed, but if Downey Jr. and Cyrus were a celebrity couple, he would be able to use his past experiences to keep her on track—she could learn from his mistakes.
Steven Tyler – Miley Cyrus and the 65-year-old Aerosmith frontman would make a good celebrity couple because she seems to be going for that punk-rock image, which is something Tyler knows pretty well. After almost five decades in the industry, he’s still relevant, so he’s obviously doing something right. There’s their shared fascination with sticking their tongue out. And although the 45-year age difference might sound like a bit of a stretch, it wouldn’t be too out of his comfort zone, since he was rumored to be romancing Clint Eastwood’s 19-year-old daughter.
P. Diddy – Miley Cyrus is trying to break into the rap music scene, as displayed by her recent collaborations with rappers Wiz Khalifa and Lil Twist. But if that’s seriously the direction that she wants to take her career, she needs to find someone who’s a little more known in the industry, like 43-year-old Sean “P. Diddy” Combs. If they were a celebrity couple, he could probably help her carve out a more refined sound to her music that would be appreciated and not mocked.
