Happy, happy birthday, Hilary Duff!
Today marks the actress’ 30th birthday, which sparks this weird juxtaposition of emotions in us. On one hand, we can’t believe she’s 30—it seems like just yesterday we were watching her take over Disney as Lizzie McGuire. But on the other hand, it feels like she’s been working for-freaking-ever, so it’s hard to believe she’s only 30.
In fact, she started acting on Lizzie McGuire in 2001 at just 13 years old, and she’s only continued her successful career ever since.
From taking on the film industry in movies like A Cinderella Story and War, Inc. to penning a trilogy of novels to singing on five studio albums, Duff has certainly come a long ways from her Disney days.
