Not every actor or actress can say that a popular novelist wrote a movie screenplay just for them, but Miley Cyrus sure can.  Nicolas Sparks, who has made waves in Hollywood with the movie adaptations of his books "The Notebook" and "Dear John," wrote the script for "The Last Song" with Cyrus in mind.  That's a pretty huge compliment for a 17-year-old.

Cyrus sat down to talk with HitFix about her upcoming romantic drama -- which she stars opposite her new boyfriend Liam Hemsworth -- and how much fun she's had acting outside of the "Hannah Montana" spotlight.  She also shed some light on her back-to-back Oscar show experiences and working with Timbaland on his the track "We Belong To The Music" off the hip-hop icon's "Shock Value II" album.

"The Last Song" opens nationwide on March 31.
