Miley Cyrus made quite the impression on Sarah Jessica Parker when the teen star filmed her Sex and the City 2 cameo.

"I was astounded by her height," Parker told MTV News of her brief time on set with Cyrus. "Did you know that she's tall? She's like a Viking. I had no idea!"

After Cyrus, 17, filmed her cameo Oct. 17 in NYC's Ziegfeld Theater, she gushed that it was "the best job I've ever done" and "a total dream come true."

She added the Parker, 44, was "the nicest person in the world."

Parker returned the compliment: "[Miley's] a beautiful young lady and very self-possesed," the actress said. But their time together was quality, not quantity. "I literally was not in the scene with her. I was in the scene, but we were not [onscreen] together. But she was lovely and on time and prompt and professional, very sweet."

As for other SATC2 scoops, Parker was generous with some details and vague with others: "I can confirm there is no Jennifer Hudson," she offered. What about John Corbett, who played Mr. Big rival Aiden on the show but didn't appear in the first film? She "can't confirm or deny" his involvement in the sequel.
