    Default Hilary Duff slams New York Times critic

    Duff Slams ‘New York Times’ Critic

    By WENN| Wednesday, June 14, 2006



    HOLLYWOOD - Hilary Duff has issued a stinging response to the New York Times movie critic who described her acting as "talent-challenged."


    Stephen Holden has consistently slammed Duff's teen comedy movies and singled out her performances particularly.

    But Duff insists she isn't making movies for New York Times readers.

    She tells Elle magazine, "He doesn't really fit the demographic. So I could really care less. Look at me, and look at where he is--sorry! Would he prefer that I take some super-adult role that is inappropriate so I would have no place to grow?

    "Suppose the next thing I did was this super-edgy independent movie where I was pregnant or shooting up. What would that do to my fan base?"

    If you think it's crazy, you ain't seen a thing. Just wait until we're goin down in flames.

    Glad someone finally had the guts to say that she cannot act...or sing...and looks horrible w/those huge horse teeth.

    She sounds a little angry, she must not have any deals coming in. Another forgotten child actor?

    I understand what she is saying but she didn't have to drop that "look where he is and where I am" line. I always knew she had a little bitch in her.

    And exactly where does she think she is? I was thinking of defending her, but she just made a huge mistake. "The pen is mightier then the sword." She will learn real quickly that the above statement rings true.

    I'd rather see her preggers and shooting smack than flouncing around in a stupid kids movie.

    I actually see her point (running out of the room before someone can throw something at me).

    Yeah but she could have made her point gracefully. She sounded like a spoiled brat. Granted alot of the times with these kinds of interviews, things get taken out of context more often than not. However, I think she did say it.

    Who says her demographic must be force-marketed shitty films and sub-par cheapo tunes that give the most return to the majors that promote them instead of investing in more explorative creations?

    The writer is right. Hilary is talent-challenge. She can't act, sing or dance. What can she do?

    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.

    no, i totally agree, bella! hilary duff, for all intents and purposes, is just a very rich, very young girl. she really defended herself well i think. so what that while defending herself she implied that she's richer than he is. IT'S TRUE. it's not like an oppinion, like the critic's was. and she's so right. of course he's going to hate her movies - they're not made for him on purpose. she's a pretty good role model so far as i've seen. maybe a little too thin, but...

    Just because you are richer then someone, does not make it right to state it. There is a certain bit of modesty some should show, when talking about themselves. Its a lack of class and humbleness. SO fucking what she makes more money then him.

    WHo knows maybe the reporter owns a bank and does this as a sideline.
