Billy Ray Cyrus says he, Miley just forgot to buckle up

YONKERS, N.Y. (AP) -- Billy Ray Cyrus says he and his daughter, the "Hannah Montana" actress Miley Cyrus, simply forgot to buckle up for one of their scenes in their new hit movie.

The country music star says they got caught up in the moment of filming and made a mistake.

Consumer Reports magazine noticed the Cyruses were not wearing seat belts as they rode in the back of a Range Rover during Disney's "Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus: Best of Both Worlds Concert."

Cyrus said on People magazine's Web site that seat belt safety is extremely important.

Don Mays, the director of product safety at Consumers Union, said he was glad the family recognized the importance of wearing seat belts.
