Hilary Duff is the self-titled third studio album by American singer Hilary Duff. It was released on September 28, , by Hollywood Records. Duff cited the album as being more mature than her previous albums, stating "Basically, I'm not Lizzie McGuire anymore". The seventeen-track album saw Duff collaborating with the same producers she did on Metamorphosis , saying that it was more comfortable for her that way.
The film follows Sam Hilary Duff , a teenage girl growing up in California with her evil stepmother, and step sisters. After an accidental cell phone mix up, Sam begins texting a mysterious boy from school, anonymously of course! After agreeing to meet up at prom, Sam discovers that she has been texting the most popular boy in school - so panics and fleas, to find a way to make herself cooler. Cheaper By the Dozen - the story that follows a not so normal sized family of 6 boys and 6 girls - was classic for everyone! And amongst the family of 12, Hilary Duff stood out, playing a perfectly cast Lorraine Baker who was a slightly superficial, but friendly girly girl, who stood up for her family and friends at all costs. The Perfect Man is an old school rom-com that will never get old. However, this time Holly wants to stay in New York so creates a fake online admirer for her mother, based on her friend's uncle.
Duff got a swift social media backlash after pictures from the party were posted online. Many thought the costumes were racially insensitive. The actress responded on Twitter Sunday, writing that she was "SO sorry" to people she offended with the costume. She says it wasn't "properly thought through. I am SO sorry to people I offended with my costume.
