Bill Murray talks about working with Miley Cyrus and Sofia Coppola

The Hollywood legend expressed her happiness of working with the two female actresses, check it out!

Bill Murray has nothing but wonderful things to say about Sofia Coppola and Miley Cyrus. His confession came during the Santa Barbara Film Festival, where the actor was awarded with the Maltin Modern Master Award. He spoke about his deep respect for the filmmaker, whom he first worked with for the 2003 film Lost in Translation and again for the 2020 film On the Rocks, by saying:

"Well, I love Sofia. It's great because the longer I know her the more I love her and the more I get to love. I see that she's a real American woman. 

A working mother, and an artist, and a sister, and a wife. She's all those things and I am none of those things, so it's kind of fun. I completely get to give myself up to it. I can really admire all things because I am not."

As for working with Cyrus on the Christmas special, Murray said the singer's talent is the "real" deal.  After pretending to struggle to come up with the singer's name, joking that all he "could come up with was Hannah Montana," the actor said that Cyrus was "stunning" to work with, adding:

"I don't want to hear anybody give me any grief about Miley Cyrus. Miley Cyrus is for real, I remember when we did this thing, they said, 'Well they tweak her voice, it's done artificially. It's done in the studio,' " It's not true at all."

This year, the Santa Barbara International Film Festival will also be honoring Riz Ahmed, Maria Bakalova, Kingsley Ben-Adir, Andra Day, Sidney Flanigan, Vanessa Kirby, Tahar Rahim and Zendaya with the Virtuosos Award, an honor created to recognize a select group of talent whose noteworthy performances in film have elevated them into the national cinematic dialogue.
