Hilary Duff strips naked for photoshoot: ‘I’m proud of my body’
Former child star Hilary Duff b@res it all in a n-de photo shoot for the May-June cover of Women’s Health.
“I think at 34 I just gained a lot of respect for my body,” she said. “It got me to all the places I needed to go. It helped me start a beautiful family. I feel like the older I get, the more self-confidence I have. . . I’m just fascinated by 1: being a woman. And 2: all the changes your body can go through throughout your life. »
Duff first rose to prominence as a teen idol in “Lizzie McGuire” (a TV series that aired from 2001 to 2004, as well as a 2003 movie). She then moved on to star in romantic comedies and family fare such as the films ‘Cheaper by the Dozen’ and ‘A Cinderella Story’, not to mention a music career and a highly publicized love triangle with rapper Aaron. Carter. and actress Lindsay Lohan. While Lohan and other stars of this era were portrayed as wild in the media, Duff’s public image was more down to earth.
“It was a conscious choice to not be anxious and try to change people’s opinion of who I am. That doesn’t mean I didn’t want to try! she told Women’s Health. “It would be stupid of me not to know that I have a thing for playing this girl that you can identify with. I am that girl.
She confessed that she struggled with an eating disorder when she was 17. “Because of my career path, I can’t help but say, ‘I’m on camera and actresses are skinny,'” she said. But after having three kids and getting another tattoo (ink on her neck that says “mother,” plus roses and swallows on her arms), she’s in a better place with her body, a- she said.
She attempted to resurrect “Lizzie McGuire” in a series for Disney+, on an adult version of the character, but was cut in December 2020 due to creative differences. Duff previously wrote an Instagram post pleading with Disney to stream the revival on Hulu, writing, “I would be doing everyone a disservice by limiting the realities of a 30-year-old’s journey to live under the ceiling of a PG rating.”
She further clarified, “She had to be 30 to do 30-year-old things. She didn’t need to do bang rips and have one-night stands all the time, but it had to be genuine. I think they were scared.
Today, she stars in the “How I Met Your Mother” spin-off series “How I Met Your Father” on Hulu. She has a 10-year-old son, Luca, with her ex-husband, NHL star Mike Comrie, and she also has two daughters, Banks, 3, and Mae, 1, with her current husband, the singer – songwriter Matthew Koma, to whom she has been married since 2019.
“I’m proud of my body,” she says. “I am proud that he gave me three children. I have come to a place where I am at peace with the changes my body has been through. I also want people to know that a makeup artist was there to shine a light all over my body and someone put me in the most flattering position.
