Hilary Duff Is All Grown Up, Look At What She’s Doing Now…
They call it the Disney curse. Cute and adorable child actors starring in one of Disney’s famous family shows, entertaining millions of viewers around the globe but when the cameras stop filming, these youngsters seem to get into a lot of trouble.
The pressure to be perfect, adorable, and endearing can be overwhelming for any kid, regardless of how mature he or she is. We have heard of too much money and fame too early on in life. From Britney Spears' meltdown, Lindsay Lohan’s run-in with the law, or Miley Cyru’s raunchy and over sexually charged dance routines, it’s hard to believe these women were once under the payroll of happiest place on earth.
One child star who also grew up under the Disney label is Hilary Duff. She has proven that the so called curse might have to do more with personal choices than anything else.
Hilary Duff was born on September 27, 1987 in Houston, Texas.
Hilary and her older sister Hailey grew up taking ballet, singing, and acting classes from an early age.

The two sisters modelled and did commercials before making it big.
Hilary says her parents never pushed her into a life of show business. Instead, they saw how dedicated Hilary was to her craft from an early age.
In 1998, Hilary landed the role of Wendy in the direct-to-video movie Casper Meets Wendy.
Hilary had been home schooled from the time she was eight years old so she could focus on her career.

After many TV appearances, Hilary got her big break when she got the lead in Disney's Lizzie McGuire.
With the show's success came music albums, dolls, T-shirts, and books based on her character.
The TV movie in 2002, Cadet Kelly was Disney Channel's highest rated program in 19 years.
During this time, Hilary dated another teen star Aaron Carter. They dated on-and-off for about three years. This garnered a lot of media attention as it turned into a love triangle between Hilary, Aaron, and Lindsay Lohan.
