Hilary Duff May Have Lost Her Virginity to Joel Madden
Here’s something about the lifestyles of the rich famous: Apparently, they get around.
In her latest Cosmopolitan interview, Hilary Duff hints that she may have lost her virginity to Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden back when she was only a teenager. While on the subject of a past romance, the former Lizzie McGuire star refers to dating a man much older than her.
“I had a pretty serious relationship at a young age that I ended, and it wrecked me for a good year and a half,” she tells the publication. “I didn’t really enjoy being single.”
When the interviewer asked Duff when she had lost her v-card, the actress replies, “I had a 26-year-old boyfriend. So everyone can make their own assumptions about what I was doing.”
Duff and Madden, who were 16 and 25 respectively at the time, started dating in 2004. The couple eventually ended things two years later in 2006.
According to Duff, she’s had to dump most of her former friends too. Recalling a “massive friend cleanse” she underwent at 19, the now 27-year-old credits her good girl image to cutting off ties with bad influences.
“That was really hard, to sit down with people and say, ‘We can’t be friends anymore,'” she reveals. “They were like, ‘That’s fucked up. You’re a bitch.’ But having a good reputation was important to me … That’s not to say I didn’t screw up and do little naughties here and there.”
