Hilary Duff is gracing the cover of Cosmopolitan for their April 2015 issue. The singer and actress and mom of one, son Luca Comrie, gets candid about marriage, divorce, music, and the struggle to keep things afloat.
On her marriage and divorce with Mike Comrie: “Mike and I were very in love when we met. We both really wanted to get married. 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. I’m lucky for the person he is and I am, and how we decided to handle this.”
On her view of marriage, post-split: “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. 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.”
On last summer’s single “All About You”: “I wrote that song for a reason! I’ve enjoyed myself. I think everyone should have something where you know it’s not exactly what you’re looking for but you just have a wicked good time. That was really freeing for me and a bit of an awakening. It’s fun to have a secret.”

Michelle Williams graces the April cover of Elle UK as she is promoting her new movie Suite francaise, a romantic war drama set in World War II. The mother of one dishes on her poetry obsession, her snoring problem and what kind of mom she is to daughter Matilda.
On why she starts her day with poetry: “I love poetry because it’s like a shot, like an attack, like a dose. And for a person who doesn’t have very much free time, it does its work very quickly. So I read poems on my phone when I wake up in the morning. It opens you up for the rest of the day, and suddenly your life becomes a little more observed. And when it becomes more observed, it can’t help but start to become more beautiful.”
On raising daughter Matilda on her own and nodding off during dinner parties: “I feel like I’m so good at raising a kid when I’m not working,’ she adds. ‘I don’t forget anything. I’ve got everything covered. It’s a real luxury to have a moment when I’m not scrambling. I feel like most of my life, I’m trying to do two things at once, both to the best of my abilities. So that leaves me feeling pretty exhausted. I’m the person who falls asleep all the time. You invite me over for dinner or to a party, and there’s a whole scrapbook of pictures of me napping. I’ve even been given a nickname because of my snoring.”
Check out the gorgeous pics from her shoot on Elle UK’s site. The new issue is out on Apple News Stand on Thursday.

Katherine Heigl graces the March cover of InStyle Australia and in it she talks about State of Affairs, and dishes on whether she wants her daughters, Adalaide and Naleigh, to get into acting.
On being candid: “I would be so scared that something I said would be used against me that I would go home after an interview and lie in bed thinking, ‘What did I say that could be taken out of context?’”
On whether she’d let her girls act: “My daughter just came home with a project from school; she was asked what she wants to do when she grows up. She said: ‘I want to be a musician like Daddy and act in movies like Mommy.’ I went, ‘We’re so screwed!’ I’m happy to support it when they’re adults but I don’t want to schlep them around to auditions and do all the stuff my mom had to do with me.”
On State of Affairs: “Charleston [Heigl’s character] is privy to a CIA secret that only she and one other person know about. You’re going to see the ramifications of that secret and what it means to her relationship with the president and her team.”
Are you watching State of Affairs? I like it so far, but admittedly I miss Katherine in romantic comedies!

“Masters Of Sex” actress Lizzy Caplan is featured on the cover of the new issue of “L.A. Confidential” and she is promoting the second season of the hit show. In this issue, she talks about getting the role of Virgina Johnson, not being recognized and having to wait for her big break.
Getting the job on MoS: “I honestly cannot believe that I got the job I’ve been waiting for. It just makes no sense to me that I get to go to work on that show every day and play that woman.”
She always thought she would be a comedy actress: “Doing a dramatic role was something that I could see myself doing on a very small scale—independent films—but on a large scale, on a show that people actually seem to watch? It’s completely shocking to me.”
People don’t recognize her: “I can walk down the street and live my life and nobody knows who I am. Something about the network sitcom thing has always scared the s–t out of me.”
The role of Virginia Johnson: “As I got older and slightly more jaded, I knew better than to see myself fully in the role because it would hurt too much when I didn’t get it. And I truly believed that I would not get this part… Virginia and I share quite a few similarities. My approach to sex and relationships at certain times in my life fell completely in line with how she viewed those topics in certain points in her life. There were eerie things that we had in common that I don’t really tell anybody, very specific details. It started to feel like she and I shared this cosmic connection.”
The early years, struggling to get work: “I’ve always felt like the underdog—partly because I’ve been told that I’m the underdog, pretty explicitly, on many occasions,” she reveals, recalling the days when she and her friend Lindsay Sloane would audition for pilots on the now-defunct WB network. “We’d want to get T-shirts made that said, I AM WB PRETTY! because we’d just been told, ‘Oh, she’s great, but she doesn’t have that WB look.’ In retrospect, I’m so grateful it took as long as it did, because I’ve been able to slowly acclimate to these changes instead of an overnight success story.”
