Moms - hide your sons. Miley Cyrus is officially legal!

The controversial Disney star celebrates her 18th birthday on Tuesday, November 23rd, so in honor of the big day, RadarOnline.com has compiled photos of Miley - from her introduction as Hannah Montana, to her sexy Can't be Tamed makeover.

From her early years, Miley loved to ham it up in front of the cameras. After taking acting classes as a child, she scored her first role in Tim Burton's 2003 movie Big Fish.

At the age of 11, Miley headed to Hollywood where she was cast in the role of a lifetime, playing the lead role in Hannah Montana.

Miley became a teen idol overnight, as her show premiered to the largest audience in Disney history. With a hit show, sellout concerts and every sort of consumer product imaginable, the young star appeared to be the perfect role mode for the Disney demographic.

Miley mania took an unexpected turn for the scandalous in 2007, when the squeaky clean teen star posted sexy photos of herself and a friend, which ended up all over the web. Followed by photos of Cyrus in her underwear and swimsuit in 2008 (hackers were blamed for releasing the pics), and soon after, her racy Vanity Fair cover, it became clear that Miley was over her good girl reputation.

After leaving the popular Disney show, Miley has pursuing her career in film and music, most recently starring in the movie The Last Song and releasing her album Can't Be Tamed.

In 2010, Miley was ranked 13th in The Celebrity 100, Forbes Magazine's annual list of the most powerful people in Hollywood. Earning $48 million dollars, the teen star ranked higher than Jay-Z, Angelina Jolie and Jennifer Aniston.
