Hilary Duff

If you thought you knew film, TV and recording star Hilary Duff before, think again. As a recording star, Hilary has sold a total of almost 12 million albums. Her debut album, Metamorphosis, released by Disney's Hollywood Records, and its debut single So Yesterday topped the pop charts in the U.S., and abroad. Hilary's second album, Hilary Duff, debuted at #2 on the Billboard 200 Album Chart. Her next album, Most Wanted, coming this August, will be a compilation of Hilary's greatest hits and will feature several new songs. With all that has been going on in Hilary's life over the past 18 months, it's amazing she's found the time to write and record songs for her new album.

Hilary continues to perform as headliner to sell-out arena audiences across the

U.S. and Canada, and in South America, Australia and Japan. Her Most Wanted tour in 2004, which featured sister Haylie as an opening act, sold out in major markets around the U.S. This summer's 31-date tour, titled Still Most Wanted, will also play to sell-out crowds across the U.S.; foreign dates are also planned. Last fall, Hilary's New Line Cinema movie, Raise Your Voice, featured both Fly and Someone's Watching Over Me from the second album. Her DVD, The Girl Can Rock, was released last August on Buena Vista Entertainment.

Hilary starred in last summer's hit movie A Cinderella Story, which grossed more than $51.4 million; the film's top 10 Hollywood Record soundtrack featured Our Lips Are Sealed, Hilary and sister Haylie's cover of the Go-Go's song. Hilary soon stars in Material Girls, co-starring Haylie, and reprises her starring role in Cheaper By the Dozen 2, shooting this summer.

Hilary first excelled in the acclaimed record-breaking Disney television series Lizzie McGuire (#1 show in its timeslot) and the Lizzie McGuire feature film (which grossed $42.7 million with a $17 million budget, and debuted at #2), gaining international recognition from the series which continues in successful global syndication and Saturday mornings on ABC Kids. Hilary starred in the 2002 made-for-Disney television movie Cadet Kelly, the networks highest-rated original film to date. She set an audience record on ABC's Good Morning America show last July when she performed before an estimated 7,000 people in Manhattan's Bryant Park. Hilary and Haylie's voices were also featured in Miramax Home Entertainment's November 23 animated DVD and video release In Search of Santa.

Even with that kind of nonstop schedule, Hilary still makes sure to give back to those less fortunate. As a charter member of the Kids With a Cause organization, Hilary sponsored a Food for a Friend drive that collected canned foods brought to her show in each city to feed more than 22,000 youngsters at shelters around the country.
