Los Angeles, Dec 31 (IANS) Following her failed marriage to estranged husband Mike Comrie, singer Hilary Duff has confessed that marriage is no longer important to her.
“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 was quoted as saying by Redbook magazine, reports aceshowbiz.com.
“If I felt strongly enough toward someone or if someone felt strongly about it, I might say okay. But it’s not essential,” she added.
The “So yesterday” hitmaker also addressed “mean” reports about her post-baby body after she gave birth to her son Luca in 2012.
“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!’,” she said.
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 realised how mean and invasive it was,” she added.
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 admitted.
“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.”
