She said that is “proud” of her body after having her three children and battling an eating disorder at the age of 17.
Duff felt she became body positive after having her second child, Banks: “It was a whole mix of things - of being settled and realising that I’m powerful and talented and smart. All mental things.
“We bust our ass to get out bodies in shape and to look the best we can. But I want to work on the inside. That’s the most important part of the system.”
What has Hilary Duff said about Women’s Health shoot?
The actress shared the cover on Instagram and admitted how scared she was of the shoot.
“I also want people to know a makeup artist was there putting glow all over my body and someone put me in the most flattering position,” said Hilary.
“I knew doing this would terrify me and I was right.
“I felt strong and beautiful and laughed a lot getting into some of these poses…thank you to everyone who normalised this day for me and propped me up with compliments and love.”
