Hilary Duff is opening up! Less than two weeks after filing for divorce from former NHL player, Mike Comrie the stunning April ‘Cosmopolitan’ cover girl revealed what caused her to end the pair’s five-year marriage.
Hilary Duff, 27, is incredibly brave. The former Lizzie McGuire star and mother of 2-year-old son, Luca filed for divorce from hubby, Mike Comrie on Feb. 20, and revealed to Cosmopolitan that the pair was “very in love” when they first met, but Hilary ultimately called it quits because “it wasn’t working well enough to stay together.”

Hilary is definitely not afraid to open up and talk about her divorce. The stunning Cosmopolitan cover girl told the mag all about her relationship and divorce with husband, Mike. “Mike and I were very in love when we met. We both really wanted to get married,” Hilary said. “I’d been working since the age of 11 or 12, so making that choice at a young age seemed right for me.”
“Maybe it wasn’t, but we spent the majority of our time together really happy. It wasn’t working well enough to stay together, but there was still a lot of love involved. It was just a slow set-in of us not being the match that we used to be,” the actress continued. “I’m lucky for the person he is and I am, and how we decided to handle this.”
After ending her union, the stunner revealed to the publication that it did change the way that she views marriage.
“I don’t want to sound bitter because I’m definitely not, but I don’t know if people are meant to be together forever. Things happen over a long relationship that you can’t always fight,” she said. “A marriage of 20 years, the accomplishment of that must feel really great, but there are also huge sacrifices. I just always want to fight for happiness.”
During her interview, Hilary managed to throw a little shade towards Chris Brown and Karrueche Tran‘s relationship. As HollywoodLife.com previously reported, the stunner talked about Aaron Carter reaching out to her on Twitter and blasted the Chris and Kae for playing their relationship out on social media.
She told Cosmo, “Him reaching out through social media? It’s ridiculous! But then people do it all the time, like Chris Brown and Karrueche? Come on, guys. Keep it between text messages.”
