Duff wants more challenging roles

Hilary DuffHilary Duff says she wants to land more challenging roles, but blames Hollywood casting executives, who she says, have “no imagination.” She explains, “They’ll meet with me. They’ll want to go somewhere and talk, ask questions. Then they’ll call and say, ‘We really love her, she’s great, wow.’ But they have no imagination. I know people look at me and think I’m just so mainstream, ‘She’s just a blonde, young girl.’ But I want to be really artistic.”

    Why would we care????? She’s rich and spoiled. Rich for doing easy work while the real world busts their asses just to make it by week after week. I couldn’t care less about these celebs.

    I would love to see her in a porno that would definitely change everyones view and maybe get her a more serious role with some action on screen. Hats off to her atleast shes nothing like Paris but paris was good in southpark hahaha slut

    she couldnt handle anything else, and i wouldnt want an imaginative movie that could be amazing being ruined by her

    Why are some of you so against Hilary? Like seriously, do you know that alot of her money from her Most Wanted Tour went to tsnuami releif in South Asia, or that she does alot of charity work. I think Hilary is a great example for teens, and shows them that you don’t have to party, do drugs, or do something scandalous to make it big in Hollywood.I think all teens should take example from Hilary. Hilary is a great example for strong young women everywhere.

    I think she has the potential to one day be a great actress like Mandy Moore and Jessica Simpson.

    Let her try to show you how artistic she could be. She only needs a chance. Right Hilary?

    I am guessing people dont like hillary duff because when she was doing Lizzie Mcguire she was paid THIRTY THOUSAND!! per episode. Her head became so enlarged after she did the Lizzie Mcguire movie for ONE MILLION dollars she refused to do any more of the shows because THIRTY THOUSAND wasnt enough for the princess.

    Hilary go see Tom Cruise…tell him you are a Scientologist, He’ll give you a part in his next flop.

  17. Brenda Walsh • July 7, 2007 @ 2:28 AM

    She’s currently in talks to appear in the next two Harry Potter films; we’ll be seeing big things from Hilary for years to come.

  19. Bonnie • July 7, 2007 @ 5:37 PM

    I think she’s a great singer. She could have been on American Idol!

  20. Ned Flanders • July 8, 2007 @ 12:24 PM

    My anticipation for the POTTER finale just went sky-high!!!

    If she got in Potter, the movies would fail. Hilary is a joke!

    hilary would be the worst thing to happen to the HP movies..

  23. aprilmay • July 11, 2007 @ 3:19 AM

    yeah i love the harry potter movies i sware i will never see another one if she is in them, it will have bad reviews and she most likely will not be popular/in any other starring roles again.

    The only way she’d be in HP is if she was an extra in the background, as there are no american wizards in the books, so she can’t talk on camera.

    SHE CAN NOT BE IN HARRY POTTER! what a disaster

  26. MollyxCliche • September 14, 2007 @ 9:12 AM

    I’d be disappointed in a very big way. If Hilary Duff had ANY role. In ANY of the HP movies. I’m sorry. But really. The films are something special. Something HP fans can see. and revile in. It isn’t enough to just read the books. Having it presented to you. In the form of a movie. Is something that adds to it’s charms. There is NO ROOM. In this franchise for ‘Lizzie McGuire’. Absoulutely NO WAY. It’s like a big smack on the face. For the fans who are loyal to the literture. the characters. and yes– the movies. Sorry Hil. But Hogwarts WILL survive without you.
