Whatever you may have thought of Hilary Duff, I think it’s safe to assume that you had to be surprised by her abilities on Younger. Even if you were already a fan, she’s impressive on the show.
Her career has covered just about everything – books, albums, movies, and more – and she opens up in the February issue of Cosmopolitan about where she is now and how it’s all coming together. She not only talks about her career, but her divorce, dating, and how she feels about hitting 30.
With the continued success of Younger, Duff finds herself in an interesting position, taking her already long and diverse career in a new (ish) direction. Moreover, she’s exploring somewhat unique ground as she has managed to exist as an actress on the show while somehow avoiding talk about her past career in relation to her ability to deliver. It’s a transition you don’t see that often, and though it isn’t new news, as the show has been out for a while, it’s interesting to see someone hit a role like this without either hyping, or having to dodge, their past.
Possibly even more interesting, she has one of the most unique divorces in the entertainment industry. It’s one that didn’t force you to hear about it, and she speaks of her ex-husband, Mike Comrie, in a way that is almost bizarre for celebrity relationships.
Mike’s amazing… We’re so ingrained in each other’s lives. I wouldn’t choose anyone else to co-parent with. We are really good friends and care a lot about each other.
On dating: “I’ve never been a good dater. I meet, like, one person a year that I’m maybe attracted to… I never want to be that girl who’s desperate to find a mate.”
On turning 30: “I think I’m a pretty confident person. I’ve had a career for a long time, but I’ve put a lot of unnecessary pressure on myself as a woman, a businessperson, an actress. I’m like, ‘Am I doing enough?’ Everyone I’ve talked to says you come into your own in your 30s. You feel more secure. I’m looking forward to that.”
