Hilary Duff Opens Up About Posing Nude for the Cover of Women’s Health

Entertainment Tonight

Hilary Duff rose to fame as a child when she stared on the Disney show “Lizzy McGuire.” Disney considered rebooting the show on Disney+, but Duff’s idea for an adult version of the character differed from what Disney execs were thinking. The reboot never happened.

Duff is now the star of “How I Met Your Father.” She agreed to star in the show when she was 8 months pregnant. Just 4 and a half months later, she had to be camera ready. Moms, you can probably all relate to how overwhelming it would be to be on camera just a few months after giving birth.

Duff made it work. She was up to the challenge, and recently, she was up to another challenge – posing naked for “Women’s Health.” At the age of 34 and after giving birth to three children, Duff has made peace with her body and she’s proud of her body. Yet, that didn’t mean the idea of posing naked didn’t intimidate her. It did, and that’s exactly why she decided to do it.

In order to prepare for the photoshoot, Duff started working out in her garage with a new trainer, Dominic Leeder. They worked out together four days a week for about an hour each time. On off days, she wasn’t a couch potato. She still kept her body moving by doing activities like hiking or playing tennis. Not only did the exercise routine help her get into shape, but it also helped her internally. She told Women’s Health, “I slept better, I felt better.”

Even though Duff worked hard to prepare for the photoshoot, she doesn’t want anyone to have the wrong idea. She explained, “I also want people to know a makeup artist was there putting glow all over my body and someone put me in the most flattering position.”
