Hannah Montana star Miley Cyrus has been named in the Hollywood Reporter's list of the 100 most powerful women in entertainment.

The 16-year-old actress and singer already has a substantial CV, which includes a number one album (Breakout) and a $65 million-grossing concert-film (Hannah Montana and Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert) in addition to her blockbuster children's TV show.

And as a result the magazine has placed the star at number 100 in the list.

Cyrus' plans for 2009 include more TV ventures, the release of Hannah Montana: The Movie and an autobiography.

And the Disney Channel's senior vice-president for original programming Adam Bonnett told Hollywood Reporter Cyrus' unparalleled success is down to her ability to be the audience's "best friend".

"In this business, where there's lots of copycats and wannabes, Miley's able to really stand out," Bonnett added.

Cyrus, the daughter of American country music singer Billy Ray, is one of only two actresses named in the list, with blockbuster film star Angelina Jolie placed at number 24.

Talk show host and media mogul Oprah Winfrey, who is also the chairwoman of film production company Harpo, was named at number one.
