Miley Cyrus (Hannah Montana) Vanity Fair Photos

All 15 year old girls want to grow up too fast, and it's up to the adults in their life to put on the brakes.

If similar photos had been taken of a non-celebrity 15 year old, charges would likely be laid against the supervising adults and the photographer. I am wondering why legal issues are not being explored in this case, including the publishing of such photos.

Before becoming a filmmaker, I worked as a photographer and turned down jobs of this nature several times. I am a relative unknown compared to Annie Leibovitz, but that still does not condone sexualized photos of a 15 year old girl.

If they had of waited until Miley Cyrus was 16 years of age, then the above issues would be gray, instead of black and white.

ps: I am also opposed to sexualized photos of underage models, and using underage actors in sex scenes.
