Hilary Duff described her experience filming the iconic 2003 Vanity Fair flyer as “high stress”.
The How I Met Your Father actress was recently asked to take a lie detector test by the publication’s editors, and during the conversation she was asked if It’s Totally Raining Teens! fold-out cover was a career high for her.
“Explain the peak of your career. As a personal peak or just as a great achievement?” she asked. “I remember saying, ‘It’s cool, I was included in that’, but no, it was a very stressful and anxiety-provoking day.”
She added, “Also, Mandy (Moore) and I are great friends now, so it’s really funny.”
The magazine cover featured Hilary and Mandy, along with Amanda Bynes, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Alexis Bledel, Evan Rachel Wood, Raven-Symoné and Lindsay Lohan.
Evan previously recounted the same shooting on a now-deleted Twitter account in 2014.
“I was almost in tears after that shoot. They tried this dress on me, I wasn’t comfortable but they told me there was no time because everyone was taking too much time with their fittings,” she recalls. “Then I was given a choice of wearing flats or heels. I chose flats and was immediately put back in heels and told they looked better. “
The Westworld actress added, “Then we were all lined up and watched and approved. I was 15 and for the first time felt my identity erased and the pressure to shut up and do what I was. we tell you.
“I felt like meat. Since then, I’ve found my voice. Never again.”
