Hillary Duff talks about his ex in the latest issue of Seventeen.
On ex-boyfriend Joel Madden:
“I was really happy in my relationship with Joel. I was with him from age 16 to 18. Those are important years. He’s my first love, so I’ll always care about him. But I definitely feel like a different person now that we broke up. And I DO feel happy!”
On the breakup with Joel:
“All of the going out he did after we broke up sort of shocked me. Like, that’s just so out of character for him, and when we were together, he hated stuff like that, so I felt like I just really didn’t know him as well as I thought I did.”
On Joel dating Nicole Richie:
“With the amount of time that we had invested in each other, I felt disrespected that he moved on so quickly…But some people don’t want to deal with how they feel, so they cover it up. Rebound! I shouldn’t say that. You know what, though? Now I don’t care.”
On her parents divorcing:
“Normally parents get divorced when you’re young and then you just grow up with that being normal. But I’m 19 – basically an adult – and it hit me like a brick in the face…I was confused and finally learned that parents are just people – which is devastating in a way.”
Sweet sixteen, that’s all I have to say.
