Hilary Duff decided to put on a bold display as she made a phenomenal appearance on the cover of Women’s Health for the outlet’s May/June issue. And this comes less than a year after giving birth to her third child.
The 34 year-old was utterly confident as she flaunted her incredible gym-toned physique. While doing so, the How I Met Your Father star pointed out to readers that ‘a makeup artist was there putting glow all over my body’ and she’s standing ‘in the most flattering position.’
‘I’m proud of my body. I’m proud that it’s produced three children for me,’ she told the magazine of her daring choice of posing naked in the buff.
Hilary Duff was also asked about how she started feeling comfortable in her own skin. Mainly because the star has a history of battling an eating disorder as a teen. In response to the question, the actress said:
‘Perhaps after having Banks [her daughter].’
‘I didn’t even know if I was going to have the opportunity to have another child [after the divorce],’ she continued. ‘So, being a mom again, maybe. It was a whole mix of things—of being settled and realizing that I’m powerful and talented and smart. All mental things.’
And even so, being an actress, Hilary Duff concludes by accepting the high standards of maintaining her figure and remaining ‘skinny’ actress. Duff says it can be difficult at times, because of several circumstances. It is one of the reasons that led her to a yearlong eating disorder at the age of 17.
‘It was horrifying,’ Hilary Duff said as she looked back to her struggles with an eating disorder. It was so severe that it led her to a treatment facility for anorexia and bulimia.
Before her appearance for the Women’s Health shoot, the mom-of-three started indulging in workouts four days a week in her garage with Dominic Leeder. The strenuous routine included cardio blasts, jumping lunges and jumping lunges.
The stunning shots of Hilary Duff were captured by photographer Daniella Midenge. In the pictures, Hilary Duff radiates confidence and elegance as she portrayed the image of an empowered woman while showcasing her killer body in all its beauty.
Apart from going all out in glory and displaying her perky rear from the side, the former Disney Channel star flaunted yet another captivating look. For this, she laid down in her bathtub while rocking a pair of white sunglasses wearing absolutely nothing.
Several attractions of her gorgeous ink collection were revealed in the shot. This included her tattoo of the French phrase ‘Ma Petite Amie’ on the right side of her rib cage. The phrase translates to ‘my girlfriend’. Also, the smiley face above her elbow was also visible.
The What Dreams Are Made Of hitmaker Hilary Duff also has roses on the inside of right bicep next to a crescent moon. She has a star and a triangle cut by a pointed down arrow. Also, Duff has ‘Let It Be’ inked on her right foot and ghost tattoo with the words ‘ride or die’ on the bottom, which she got with best friend Alanna Masterson.
