Hilary Erhard Duff is an American actress born September 28, 1987, she’s a singer, songwriter, and businesswoman. She is the recipient of various accolades, including seven Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards, four Teen Choice Awards, and two Young Artist Awards. She began her acting career at a very young age, quickly being called a teen idol, as the title character of the television series, Lizzie McGuire, and in the film based on the series, (2003).
Recently Neil Patrick Harris shared his thoughts on the reboot of his iconic show How I Met Your Mother where he essays the role of the not-so-subtle ladies’ man Barney Stinson. If you didn’t have any idea, The reboot–How I Met Your Father was broadcasted this week and stars Hilary Duff and many more. While talking to Hilary in his Wondercade newsletter, the actor opened up about the expectation of reprising his role as the playboy in the new show.
Neil told Hilary, As for coming on her show (insert joke here), he worries. Barney’s antics, his overt delusions of grandeur, would likely get everyone in a problem. So, unless he’s changed his ways or joined a nunnery (insert an insert joke here), not sure if it’s in anyone’s best interest.
The Lizzie McGuire alum agreed that Barney’s antics would most likely land him in trouble with the current climate and the recent #MeToo era. Duff said she’s not sure how you feel about this, but she’s pretty sure Barney would… be in jail in 2022. Since we’re living in the world of females coming into power, I’m assuming that’s why they made [Barney-esque character Valentina] a woman.
