Believe it or not, Hilary Duff turns 30 today, September 28th. Crazy, right!? We’ve been watching her since she was just a teen starring on the Disney Channel’s ever-popular Lizzie McGuire, and now she’s nailing her role on Younger, plus she’s a mom to Luca. In honor of Hilary turning the big 3-0, here are some of the things we love most about her.
This SUPER awkward Disney Channel commercial from back in the day
Apparently, they had all of the Disney stars film a little promo where they used a wand to draw mouse ears. After a bunch of takes, a young Hilary Duff was NOT having it. The bloopers are hilarious. It’s good to know that even a Disney star was a salty teen just like the rest of us.
Her show “Younger”
If you haven’t seen the show yet, check it out on TVLand. Hilary stars alongside Sutton Foster, who pretends to be 26 in order to land a job. It’s hilarious, it’s relevant, and Hilary kicks ass as Kelsey.
Her adorable son Luca
Seriously, have you seen a cuter kid?
This post slamming body shamers
News outlets decided to run this picture alongside a critique of Hilary’s cellulite, so she posted this amazing, inspirational post as a response. Since every human in the world has insecurities and flaws, it definitely struck a chord with fans.
Speaking of bringing realness back, Hilary’s Instagram is full of LOL-worthy moments like this. We’ve all had similar text conversations with our friends. It’s nice to know that some things don’t change, even when you’re a celebrity.
Happy 30th birthday, Hilary! From Lizzie McGuire to Younger, we love you!
