The Duff Is Dating!

It's so great to see a smile on Hilary's face. She's getting past the break-up and moving on with life, at least that is what she told Ryan Seacrest on his radio show yesterday. Hilary also confessed that she has no hard feelings against Joel and that there wasn't even a reason for their split. Now, she's just having fun being single. She even recently went on her first date - ever. Here's more:

"I've never gotten to (date) before, so it's kind of exciting," she said. "I've always just had a boyfriend, you know? I'm young!"

Duff, 19, said her breakup with Madden, the lead singer of Good Charlotte, late last year, after two and half years together, wasn't bitter. "There was nothing – no fight, no 'He did this, I did this,' " she said. "It was just time for people to move on and do different things."

They still keep in touch, she added. "I had a really great relationship with him, and we still have a great relationship, which is really good and unusual. He's a good person, and I always will care about him."

Guess that means Nicole came in after the fact. Hilary is always so professional. She wouldn't mention whom she went on a date with either so we'll have to wait and see if he is lucky enough to get a second date. Stay tuned.

Her smile looks so forced in the first shot. Funny how she's acting more mature about her breakup than Cameron Diaz is.

i am not really in her age demographic but i like her because she knows who that demographic is and she tries to do things that will appeal to them. she has done a good job balancing growing up and being somewhat of a role model for young girls.

Her face seems a little fuller which is good. I hope she put a few pounds on. She is not the best gossip in the world but she is a bttter role model then LL and other girls her age. I would rather see pictures of her then LL any day

Honey 31, my daughter and I met her, too. She was sooooo friendly, but much too thin. She looked so fragile. I like Hilary...she's like Mandy Moore, very nice and wholesome and pretty.

I am really not a big fan of her, but I do think it's pretty great that she hasn't joined the Hollywood Skank patrol. Good for her!

I agree with others that she fixed those too bulky veneers. Now, if only she'd gain some weight, she'd be pretty.

I think she look soooo good with that haircolor, and I want some sunglasses exactly like that - gold rimmed aviators.

i watched that movie she did with her sister "material girls" this week. honestly, it would have been a cute movie of the week. it wasn't any worse than any other tween movie and her sister has a sort of jennifer love hewitt thing going on (i mean that in the nicest possible way). i agree with the posters who like hillary because she keeps her business to herself. smart choice in her live of work.

It's so weird for me to say that I love Hilary Duff, because I never thought I would. How can you not admire this girl? I love the fact that she broke up with some one that she cared a lot about, and she didn't go out and get completely trashed and take her clothes off for the camera. She hasn't said anything negative about Joel, even though he moved on so quick to Nicole. Hilary seems like a pretty awesome girl, and I'm glad that she's happy.

Love the new hair,especially the color. I agree, I think her teeth have been filed down. I have never cared for her, but I love her new look.
