CosmoGIRL!: You're only 16 and already such a big star. What's been the biggest perk of your fame?
Hilary Duff: I love that I just get to go to work every day and sing and act and travel to all these great places and just do the things that I love. I also get this incredible support from fans, which is totally cool.
CG!: How do you handle it when fans spot you and want an autograph?
HD: Usually if I sign one autograph, I end up signing at least 20. It's hard, because I have so much support from all those people and it's because of them that I get to do what I love to do every day. Usually, the only time I don't sign an autograph is when I'm literally running away because there's a big crowd or something. But even when I'm running, sometimes I'll yell back to them, "I'm sorry!"
CG!: Did you always know you wanted to be a performer?
HD: No, I didn't. My sister was the performer. No joke we would go to restaurants in Texas and she would just go up to people and sing. She was the one who started it. She started getting more and more into it and started taking classes and stuff, and I was always more into sports. But Halie would come home and teach me all these things she was learning, and one day I was like, "I want to do that too."
CG!: You've also got this new line of clothes and accessories called Stuff by Duff. How would you describe your own personal style?
HD: I don't necessarily think I have a certain style that I stick to. I think it's important for girls to know that they don't have to always go with what is cool, they have to be comfortable in it and it has to look good on them. Every day I wake up in a different mood to wear something else.
CG!: So what's next for you?
HD: There's a development deal for a TV show with CBS in the works. I'm doing a movie soon called Hottest Summer with Jonathan Jackson, which will be great because it's a little bit dramatic. Then another after that called The Perfect Man. After I finish filming, I'm going to take some time off and try to write some stuff for the new album. I'm not sure I can write all by myself, because I'm very shy about opening up, but I do want to try writing some songs.
CG!: You're so busy! What's the first thing you want to do when you finally have some time off?
HD: Clean my room.
