Teen star Hilary Duff has hit out at reports she's undergone an operation to enlarge her breasts - after posters for her film THE LIZZIE McGUIRE MOVIE featured her sporting a larger bust.

The 15-year-old screen star - who shot to stardom playing the all-American teen in the DISNEY CHANNEL series of the same name - speculates the camera angle may have misled observers into thinking her breasts were suddenly bigger.

She laughs, "I find it really, really, weird because they said that, like, I had a boob job or something. I really didn't. Maybe it was the angle of the camera or something like that."

And the youngster knows she's not the first rising star to face such speculation.

She adds, "Now I feel really bad for Britney Spears."
