MTV: Let’s talk “LOL.” We saw a lot of photos of you guys filming on location in Europe. Between “Twilight” fans and Miley fans, did you guys have to deal with a lot of paparazzi and people hanging outside set?
Greene: Miley is a phenomenon — she’s accomplished so much in the movie, TV and music worlds that it’s not surprising how much attention was attracted during filming. But we’re both professional and understand that we’re there to do our jobs. Work was our number-one priority, and everything else was background.
MTV: You’ve become a fashion icon in young Hollywood, and your “LOL” character certainly has a distinctive fashion style. Did you get to pick out any of your outfits? Keep anything? Become inspired by any of those looks?
Greene: I definitely have a say in them, but it’s more about what fits my character than me personally. In “LOL,” my character, Ashley, wears some pretty outrageous and provocative outfits that I’d never wear in real life! With Alice Cullen, we got to draw on Audrey Hepburn and Jackie O inspirations, which is a bit more me.
On October 21, brace yourselves for the return of Miley Cyrus in Laughing Out Loud – also know, inevitably, as LOL. Based on the 2008 French film of the same name, this focuses on a teenager’s everyday life and relationship with her equally unsorted mother.
Cyrus is Lola, aka Lol, and Demi Moore is her mum. Expect peer pressure, parental interference, high school romance and support from Thomas Jane, Gina Gershon and Ashley Greene
Lionsgate has acquired U.S. distribution rightts to coming-of-age comedy “LOL,” starring Miley Cyrus, Demi Moore and Ashley Green (“Twilight”), from Mandate Pictures.
Lionsgate hasn’t set a release date for “LOL,” an American version of the 2008 French comedy “Laughing Out Loud.”
Lisa Azuelos directed “LOL” from her own script, in which a Cyrus’ character and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When her mom, played by Moore, “accidentally” reads her daughter’s racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown.
Producers are Michael Shamberg and Stacey Sher of Double Feature Films and Tish Cyrus with Mandate President Nathan Kahane, Azuelos, Romain Le Grand and Jerome Seydoux exec producing. Co-producers are Double Feature’s Taylor Latham, Mandate’s Nicole Brown and Kelli Konop and Jim Powers.
Mandate, a subsidiary of Lionsgate, operates as an independent brand with “LOL” marks the first collaboration between the two companies.
Also starring are Thomas Jane (“Hung”), Gina Gershon, Marlo Thomas, Fisher Stevens and Nora Dunn along with young thesps Adam Sevani, Jay Hernandez, Austin Nichols, George Finn and Douglas Booth.
The “Hannah Montana” babe and the “New Moon” chick stood by as crew members prepped scenes for their movie “LOL: Laughing Out Loud.”
Yesterday (September 6) Miley and Ashley had some while filming at the fountains near the Eiffel Tower.
Cyrus and Greene took a dip in the water and frolicked while the paparazzi looked on from afar.

Includes the rest of the cast!
Miley Cyrus LOL script details via Hollywood Life. ‘As Lola who is described as a ‘teenage Aphrodite, minus the confidence’ the 17-year-old actress loses her virginity, talks about sex incessantly, smokes marijuana, kisses one of her two best female friends on the lips, gets wasted and accidentally shows her mom,
‘Ann, (Demi Moore) her Brazilian wax.’ You’re my daughter,’ Ann tells Lola whose nickname happens to be LOL, ‘And I won’t let you turn into a porn star!’ Ashley Greene plays completely against type as Lola’s arch-nemesis, the slutty (and aptly named) Ashley, who’s nicknamed ‘The Post It’ because ‘she sticks to every guy.’ Miley pictured on LOL set.
Ready to be drowned in teenage comedy stereotypes? I hope so because according to Coming Soon, LOL has officially gone into production. Just a month ago we got a taste of what’s to come when we first heard that Twilight’s Ashley Greene joined the cast. Major adolescent draw. Also on board? The teen queen herself, Miley Cyrus. Even with Demi Moore’s name on the roster it’s still quite tempting to dismiss this one off as a formulaic high school drama. The official synopsis doesn’t help, but the new additions to the cast might.
In a world connected by YouTube, iTunes and Facebook, Lola (Cyrus) and her friends navigate the peer pressures of high school romance and friendship while dodging their sometimes overbearing and confused parents. When Lola’s mom, Anne (Moore), “accidentally” reads her teenage daughter’s racy journal, she realizes just how wide their communication gap has grown. Through hilarious and heartfelt moments between mother and daughter, “LOL” is an authentic coming-of-age story for the way we live now.
Lola’s high school inner-circle includes Kyle (Booth) – Lola’s BFF, whom she realizes is her love interest; Lola’s two best friends Janice (Esco) and Emily (Hinshaw); Max (Sevani) – a nerd that Emily secretly hooks up with; Lola’s ex-boyfriend and Kyle’s best friend Chad (Finn); Lloyd (Watson) who is part of their crew; and Ashley (Greene) – the sexy girl who has set her sights on Kyle, much to Lola’s dismay. Thomas Jane plays Alan, Anne’s ex-husband and Lola’s father. Jay Hernandez plays James, a dangerously cute, good-natured cop dating Anne who is able to offer a little perspective on her teenage daughter. Austin Nichols plays Mr. Ross, the heartthrob math teacher, who all the girls have a crush on. Marlo Thomas plays Gran, Anne’s sophisticated mother whose relaxed demeanor allows her to be the easy-going bystander when it comes to watching Anne raising children of her own. Gina Gershon and Fisher Stevens play Anne’s closest friends and confidants and Nora Dunn plays Emily’s mom.
Catch all of those added names there? We reported on Thomas’ casting a few weeks back, but Douglas Booth, Adam Sevani, George Finn, Ashley Hinshaw, Lina Esco, Tanz Watson, Thomas Jane, Jay Hernandez, Austin Nichols, Gina Gershon, Fisher Stevens and Nora Dunn are all new to the production. The younger cast members are basically unknowns expect for Sevani who you might recognize from Step Up 2: The Streets and can catch in the upcoming installment, Step Up 3D. I don’t care if it means this movie comes with a corny prom dance routine, I wouldn’t mind seeing Sevani showing off his skills.
The adult ensemble, however, is full of famous faces and quite impressive. Jane is always a pleasure to look at as is Hernandez, and Moore has the pleasure of spending some time with both. Her character’s situation basically sounds like a screen version of her Willis-to-Kutcher swap. I lost a lot of faith in Nichols after The Informers, but the guy still rocks on One Tree Hill, so I can’t hold it against him. As for Gershon, I’m not familiar with much of her on screen work, but did happen to catch her performance in Bye Bye Birdie on Broadway. The show sucked, but she wasn’t half bad. Lastly there’s Stevens and Dunn who are probably the least familiar nowadays, but have delivered some impressive pieces in the past, my favorite of which are Super Mario Brothers (yes, I loved it as a kid and still do) and Three Kings respectively.
Perhaps we shouldn’t be writing this one off just yet. Plus it might be wise to check out the 2008 French version before passing too much judgment on this American remake.
LOL: Laughing Out Loud stars Demi Moore, Miley Cyrus, Thomas Jane and Ashley Greene. It’s about a girl named Lola who navigates high school while dodging her parents in the age of Facebook, YouTube and iTunes.
However, things go south when Lola’s mom, Anne, “accidentally” reads her racy journal. Cyrus plays Lola, while Moore plays Anne.
The movie has been filming around Detroit since July 20. Moore was spotted just before filming at a Garden City karaoke bar with Gerard Butler, who is in Detroit filming Machine Gun Preacher.
