Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff has denied claims she slammed Nicole Richie in her song 'Gypsy Woman'.The teen star's lyrics were believed to be a scathing attack directed at her ex-lover Joel Madden's new girlfriend Nicole, but Hilary insists this is not true. Hilary said: "It's not my job to talk about my relationship. But the more you try to keep it quiet, the more people want to know about it."The 19-year-old actress and singer dated Joel from 2004 until November 2006. Hilary - who shot to fame as the star of hit US TV show 'Lizzie McGuire' -also spoke of the pressure she feels to be thin since she became famous. Hilary said although she has never had a problem with her weight, she feels people can be "judgmental and mean". She said: "If you don't like the way you look or feel insecure, when people say things about you - in magazines or just in everyday life - they can be hurtful. But you'll never make them happy."
