It can’t be easy for someone young to make it into the Hollywood business and the competition is brutal!! Everyone is trying to clearly define their territory so things can get sour between young stars.
"It's hard to find people who don't feel like they're in competition with you," Hilary tells Allure in its May issue. So she dishes about Lindsay Lohan, Miley Cyrus and Avril Lavigne and more:
On Lindsay Lohan: "Supposedly, I stole Lindsay Lohan's boyfriend [Aaron Carter.] We were, like, 13! And I've never stolen anyone's boyfriend! I don't know how you do that! . . . She was talking about it and I wasn't. It made us both look bad and put up a big weirdness. Really she was just a girl my age. We are fine now, by the way."
On Miley Cyrus: "We don't have each other's phone numbers. But when she meets me, she's excited. It's cute – I see a lot of myself in her."
On Avril Lavigne: "I said something about how she didn't like her fans dressing like her, and how she should appreciate that because it's a compliment. She called me a goody-goody [Lavigne called Duff a 'mommy's girl' in Newsweek] Everyone is trying to prove who they are, and their position. So, I'm 'the good girl.' She's 'the bad girl' or 'the party girl.' Sarah Jessica Parker doesn't take her clothes off, but she's not a 'good girl.' [Adult actors] don't get tagged like we do."
On being normal: "I’m not a perfect, prude girl. I like to do normal things that 20 year-olds do."
On being with 24-year-old Joel Madden when she was 15: “He was never nervous, like, ‘I could get arrested,’” she says. But does admit, “It looked bad.”
On diets and being too thin: "I don't think I ever looked sick, but I really watched what I ate. You lose touch when you're so obsessed."
On pleasing her younger fans: "I don’t want to restrict myself from doing things that stimulate me just to make them happy . . . if they continue liking me, that’s cool, but I don’t want to cater to them. I’m not 13, 14, or 15 anymore.”
