Hilary Duff: Snapshot

Hilary Duff
Date of Birth
September 28, 1987
Birth Place
Houston, Texas
Former Lizzie McGuire star Hilary Duff matured without tarnishing her perky, mom-friendly Disney veneer – which former rival Lindsay Lohan shed.

The tween TV hit spawned a movie spin-off that launched Duff's big-screen career, and as a pop singer, she released three platinum-selling albums, two of which topped the Billboard charts. But it was a reported feud with Lohan over pop star Aaron Carter that had the tabloids buzzing. Duff eventually moved on, dating Good Charlotte rocker Joel Madden for more than two years before marrying hockey player Mike Comrie. The couple, who are parents to son Luca Cruz, announced their separation in 2014, gave it another shot, but ultimately divorced in 2015.

When she learned to ride a bike, I had to as well. If she took ballet lessons, I did too. I took singing lessons because she did.
