"As a person who grew up with Hilary Duff," starts one You Tube comment on a clip of . I think everyone should have something where you know it's not exactly what you're looking for but you just have a wicked good time. I'm lucky for the person he is and I am and how we decided to handle this."Wife life was something Duff had long dreamed about. We both really wanted to get married." They said "I do" when Duff was 22.However, Duff says she doesn't consciously look for roles to spice up her image. That was really hard, to sit down with people and say 'We can't be friends anymore.' They were like 'That's fucked up; you're a bitch.' But having a good reputation was important to me. That was really freeing for me and a bit of an awakening. "I'd been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me.
"So everyone can make their own assumptions about what I was doing." Madden is now married to Nicole Richie. Things happen over a long relationship that you can't always fight.
But another of Duff's famous exes, Aaron Carter, has yet to move on. A marriage of 20 years, the accomplishment of that must feel really great, but there are also huge sacrifices.
"I don't have to prove to people that I'm an adult now. It's frustrating to be put in a box, but I never needed to wild out to show that I'm grown-up."Indeed, Duff's cut a quieter path than other Disney stars of her era: See Miley Cyrus, who's all but buried Hannah Montana in marijuana-print leotards, or Lindsay Lohan, star turned Oprah bait. That's not to say I didn't screw up and do little naughties here and there." She hinted at one such naughty in last summer's single "All About You," which starts, "You could be my dirty secret." Is Duff the type to have an F buddy? It's fun to have a secret."People have always wondered about Duff's sex life, mainly when, exactly, she swiped in her V card. Maybe it wasn't, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy." Her view on forever-after has since shifted.
"I had a 26-year-old boyfriend," she says, referring to Good Charlotte's Joel Madden, who she started dating when she was a teen. "But then people do it all the time, like Chris Brown and Karrueche? Even her split from Comrie in January 2014 has been by all accounts amicable. "I don't want to sound bitter because I'm definitely not, but I don't know if people are meant to be together forever.
Also the love aspect is super important, where you are really attracted to that person," she sighs.
