The Vampire Diaries star was recently quoted in FASHION magazine explaining that she has no current plans to marry her boyfriend and co-star Ian Somerhalder.
She added: "I'm not going to pull a Miley."
The comment was in reference to Cyrus, 19, who confirmed in June that she is engaged to her long-term boyfriend Liam Hemsworth.
However, Dobrev later took to her Twitter page to clarify that her remarks were not meant to insult Cyrus.
"Note to self, light hearted comments don't always translate in magazine articles," she wrote. "Big fan of @Mileycyrus - do you need a flower girl? :)"
Cyrus's home was stormed by armed police last night after a hoax call to emergency services claimed that shots had been fired during a break-in.
