Hilary Duff - Hilary Duff Worries About Raising Son In Spotlight

Former child star Hilary Duff worries about bringing up her son in the spotlight, and insists she would be reluctant to let him follow in her footsteps by entering showbusiness.

The actress, who gave birth to Luca in March (12), shot to fame as a youngster playing the title role in Disney teen sitcom Lizzie MCGuire, but admits she would think twice before letting her little boy pursue a career in Hollywood.

She tells Parents.com, "I'd say, 'Are you sure?' (if my son wanted to act). My sister and I said that same thing to my mom, and she encouraged us. I'm so happy she did, and I would not change my life for anything. But it's tough, and it's totally different than it used to be.

"I am even scared of (Luca) growing up getting his picture taken all the time and feeling different. I saw a rag magazine the other day - I was having my hair done or something - and the headline said, 'Who Wore It Better?' and the photo showed (Tom Cruise's daughter) Suri Cruise and so-and-so's kid. They had the same dress on, and (magazine editors) put these kids up against each other. I'm just thinking that this is sickening. Now that I'm a mom and I have a child, I can't imagine. It's not right."
