Hilary Duff has learned a lesson from her failed marriage to her estranged husband Mike Comrie. The Disney alum speaks to Redbook magazine that she’s still open to another marriage in the future but doesn’t think it’s important.
“I don’t want to say I wouldn’t get married again, but it’s not important to me. I don’t feel I would need to be married to have another child,” Duff tells the magazine about her possible marriage in the future. “If I felt strongly enough toward someone or if someone felt strongly about it, I might say okay. But it’s not essential.”
During the interview, the “So Yesterday” songstress also addresses “mean” new reports about her post-baby body. “After I had Luca, I went out to, like, the breast-pump store – I was still huge – and I just had a comfortable outfit on. And the next day [in the tabloids] it was like, ‘Hilary debuts post-baby bod!’ And I was like, ‘That’s not a debut! That’s an errand!’ ”
Back then, Duff didn’t think the news reports were rude as she didn’t really pay attention to them. “It was such a happy time that honestly I didn’t care; it wasn’t until later that I realized how mean and invasive it was,” she confesses.
On another note, the actress/singer also admits that she is always faced with the dilemma of choosing between work and family commitments. “It’s hard to say that you really can have it all. I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough,” Duff admits. “You’re missing out on something, either on the career or on the family. When I’m really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty.”
