Joins Tinder

Makes Statement0 Comments

Duff joins Tinder and gets her first date using the app.

It’s true. I’m on Tinder…I was sitting with my friends one night at the house and we were joking around. In my life, I have always had really serious boyfriends. I’ve always met people through work and I have never been on a blind date. What’s the worst that could happen…I have my first date tonight and I’m really, really nervous. We’re going bowling, so it can’t be too expensive. I like that. I’ve never dated just a total normie.

On Air interview

Interview0 Comments

Seacrest interviews Duff during On Air With Ryan Seacrest about her role in the TV show Younger. 

I play this girl, Kelsey Peters, who is pretty motivated and driven in her work life and her personal choices are questionable. So, it’s fun to play that for me The show is all about reinventing yourself, and if and when you get stuck in a rut, or in that wheel of life where you’re just going and not really happy, the show is kind of challenging that. F- it, we can do it.

Him reaching out through social media? It’s ridiculous! But then people do it all the time, like Chris Brown and Karrueche? Come on, guys. Keep it between text messages.

Cosmopolitan interview

Interview0 Comments

Duff breaks her silence on her divorce in an interview for Cosmopolitan magazine:

It wasn’t working well enough to stay together, but there was still a lot of love involved,” she added. “It was just a slow set-in of us not being the match that we used to be. I’m lucky for the person he is and I am and how we decided to handle this.

I don’t want to sound bitter because I’m definitely not, but I don’t know if people are meant to be together forever. Things happen over a long relationship that you can’t always fight. A marriage of 20 years, the accomplishment of that must feel really great, but there are also huge sacrifices. I just always want to fight for happiness.

I didn’t really mean to. My agent called me and was like, ‘I have a really good show; it’s a Darren Star show and he wants you for it.’ I said: ‘I can’t do that right now. I have Luca, and I definitely can’t move to New York.’ She told me to just read it. It was really, really good…. I either take a break or just slam myself full throttle, so here I am shooting the show and making a record at the same time again.

I lost my baby weight from boxing, and I have this awesome trainer, Gabe. I was already there, but I definitely shed, like, 10 more pounds from doing two-a-days for two or three weeks, an hour each session=. I live in a cul-de-sac, but I have a big hill, so I would run the hill, then box in my cul-de-sac.

I’m separated from my husband right now, which has been a very difficult thing to go through, but we have a lot of love for each other and we have this beautiful baby. There’s a song about Luca and a song about my separation and my love for this person, that maybe we’re not meant to be together, or maybe we are. It’s very, very personal.

She’s (Clea) going to team up with Ben again, who’s her best friend. They’ve ended on bad terms, so now she has to be the bigger person and go back to him and beg him to help her even though she’s really upset with him, and then the story goes on from there. They go on to have a really big adventure, and there’s a huge fight scene at the end of the book that was a lot of fun to write and a lot of new characters. It’s fun.

Cameo/Guest AppearanceTV Appearance0 Comments

Duff guest stars on NBC comedy Community, playingMeghan, a mean girl who insults the main characters Britta, Shirley and Annie, but is taken down by character Abed played by Danny Pudi.

I think that it was fun for me to get to play a mean girl because it is so different than anything I’ve ever done before. But she is like – it was fun to play a character that’s super – acts super confident but is totally, you know, shallow and scared inside.

200px-ElixirDuff releases her first young adult novel titled Elixir. The novel is co-written by Duff and Elise Allen that follows a paranormal romance theme. The novel is on the New York Times’ Best Sellers List.

I have always been interested in the paranormal and afterlife, everything from ghosts to angels. I think that everyone has that curiosity of the great unknown. It is fun to add the paranormal element because there aren’t any limits to what you can do.
