Some people may dissagree with me but nothing or no one can stop me from not liking hilary duff. She can't sing and is not a good actress. How could someone with so little talent become soo famous. Tell me what you think.

That is a very good question, and I'm glad I'm not the only one who's thought this. I read somewhere that when she auditioned for "Lizzie McGuire" the director told her to get acting lessons. What,did you take one and go back? And what made the director change his mind? ANYway,she's an OK singer (not great) and an absolute awful actress. This may be one of life's unsolved mysteries...

Hey monkey774, aren't you being a bit harsh? I think she is very talented for her age! She was in Casper Meets Wendy (playing Wendy), the Lizzie McGuire series and Movie (playing Lizzie!) and it just so happens that she released an album. So she is obviously a main star to 95% of the world! I mean, it's not everyday you see someone so young become famous!

just because hilary acted and sings doesn't mean she does a good job at it. She is 17 and is almost 18. i know a lot of stars younger than her.

How many of these pretty people with no talent are out there? It's pathetic! It's seeming more and more that all you have to do is look hot, and have a little personality and you TOO can become a star. It really taints the entertainment world. They are a dime a dozen.

FINE! I can't keep up with all these insults! They could be saying the same things about you out on the net. Cruel, mean and nasty things. If you went onto that website and found out, how would you feel? Knowing people don't like you for who you are, and see beyond you to the mean options. You guys don't even know Hilary Duff, so how can you say such awful things. She is a very nice teenager, who likes what she does. Can you really just watch her movies and think, "Huh. Pathetic. She shouldn't of ever been famous, on TV, singing away. Anyone can do a better job than her."
I can't believe this. How can you be so mean to a person you don't know a thing about.

I think to answer your question Dream, it's the sour grapes that CWM mentioned earlier. I don't think Hilary Duff is aimed at the older teenager anyway - more the early teens or 8-11 years old. I agree with the wholesome comment - she is, heaven forbid that she doesn't get around with half her chest hanging out. I think she's a good rolemodel and I'd swap bank accounts with her anyday.

Yes, she may have a good personality and no, i don't know her, but still i really don't think she has a great voice,even if i liked her or knew her it doesn't give me a reason to think she is a good singer or actor. She also lip sncs her song so weather i know her or not, i won't think she is a great actor or singer. Like you said,"They could be saying the same things about you out on the net. Cruel, mean and nasty things. If you went onto that website and found out, how would you feel? Knowing people don't like you for who you are, and see beyond you to the mean options." No, i won't feel very happy about people not liking me but people have their own thought's (that's life) and might share them with different people. Remember you can never tell others what they should think. In my opinion Hilary Duff shouldn't be famous.

Yes, I guess you are right pinkster. You don't have to like her voice or her acting, but mabye you should just nudge your words down a bit. Oh, of course it isn't only you. The first 4 posts, the 6th and 7th posts too. Mabye a bit too harsh.
Thankyou Copago, things on television do get people thinking more than reading something, or actually knwoing something!

Some of us easily admit a bit of sour grapes at times like this. I personally don't have any opinion one way or another about Duff as a person, and I can see she's most certainly a better role model than Spears, but I feel she exemplifies a world in which people with genuine talent are passed over for those with the right 'look'. For someone like me, who has talent but lacks opportunity, it can be irksome to look at people like Duff, the Olsen twins and other less-than-talented stars and wonder what might have been if we had been in those right places at those right times. Enter the sour grapes. Don't misunderstand this as bitter regrets, as I'm quite sure my time hasn't passed altogether, and rather like where I am now, so regrets are few and far between for me. Just meant to illustrate how easy it is to judge harshly from our own disappointments.

Well, yes, monkey. But that is who is meant to like her, and I'd far rather those girls have her as a role model than some of the other young women they might choose. Her work isn't, nor has it ever been, intended to entertain adults.

Actually, while you are on this roll of weird celebs, what is with Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen? They can't act, and I think they are just famous 'cause they are so rich. How are they supposed to be role models, when they are making G-Strings for little kids (age 5 and under!)?! I can't believe it! They are just bringing a teenage life into a little kids world! Little kids can barely spell their name, and as if they would wear G-Strings and mascara! Geez, and for the under 11's, they are brining in the B-Strings. What the??? As if boys under 11 are interested in ........
WHAT DO YOU THINK?

i think the reason why mary-kate and ashley are so famous is because they are twins, there are not many twin stars out there.

I honestly can say I have never heard of Hilary Duff in my life (till I saw the name on the celebrities board) and literally have no idea who she is, so I just looked it up to find she's an actress. She does seem to have generated a lot of opinions though, even on 'Neighbours' yesterday, so she must have something special about her, ie being overrated by the sound of the comments.

Ah, I see it's a teenage thing, no wonder I wasn't familiar with it

Yes, Hilary Duff is more of a teenage thing but is ver famous from her acting and singing, I honestly don't think should should be a teenage thing either.

Yes, they are twins, but so are about a third of the world! No, they aren't hot to me and that wouldn't be a major reason, otherwise monkey774 would have answered Pinkster's question about HD, and would have to like Hilary as well
Oh, and monkey774, I think she was agreeing with pinkster... but I'm just guessing!
