Miley Cyrus wows Fans Her Concert: Grosse Pointe South High School has been transformed into a movie set this week as filming continues on the Hollywood comedy “LOL,” starring Miley Cyrus and Demi Moore. The school has been standing in since Wednesday for fictional Wrigley High School in Chicago. Cyrus plays a 15-year-old student who’s dealing with boy problems and the breakup of her parents.
A crowd of up to 40 people, mostly teenage girls, was camped outside Grosse Pointe South on Wednesday and today and eager to catch a glimpse of the pop star-actress. Filming is taking place in a gym, hallways and three classrooms.
At the Grosse Pointe Farms school, as well as in an assistant principal’s office and a courtyard between two buildings. “They’re using a lot of the school, everything except what’s needed for fall sports,” says Principal Al Diver, who shared lunch twice with the “LOL” cast and crew.
Diver found Cyrus and her father, singer Billy Ray Cyrus, to be “very low-key and surprisingly down-to-earth.” He asked Miley Cyrus for an autograph for his granddaughter. Meanwhile, Cyrus sightings have kept cell phones humming around the shopping area known as the Village on Kercheval Avenue in Grosse Pointe.
“It’s getting a little obsessive,” says 16-year-old Olivia Ray of Grosse Pointe Park, who watched as Cyrus was pursued by autograph seekers while trying to buy a bag of chips at CVS. “She told everyone to quit stalking her, to give her some space,” says Ray. “I can understand her frustration, but she could have been a little less rude about it.”
