Hilary Duff is opening up about her split from ex Mike Comrie.
In the new issue of Elle Canada, the 27-year-old singer reveals how she handled all the negative attention after she and the former hockey pro announced they were separating in January 2014 after three years of marriage.
"I have a good therapist!" the cover girl laughed, adding, "I've dealt with [attention] for such a long time. But some of the bigger struggles that came my way in the past two years—like my separation or when my parents separated—were the first times I had to deal with people knowing about something personal happening to my family. It just felt so invasive and insensitive. It got really gross, and I think part of you gets a bit desensitized. The best way to handle it is by just owning your shit. I'm human and this is what happened. None of us is perfect."
The mother of one also talked about 2-year-old son Luca. The actress says little Luca is reaching the age where he understands his mom is a famous star.
"I think he's starting to figure it out, but I don't really know what he thinks yet," she dished. "I don't tell him anything about my job, but he knows Mommy's a singer and an actress. We have this book called Goodnight Los Angeles. It's like, ‘Goodnight, movie stars and entertainers of Los Angeles!' and it shows people working on a set and having their names in lights. Mike's always telling Luca ‘This is where Mommy is!' when I'm at work."
As for her Elle cover, Duff looked stunning in an embellished little black dress with jeweled details around the bottom of the skirt and sleeves.
In the mag, Duff models a chic menswear-inspired suit and tie look with a fringe vest. She also rocks a sexy jacket with only thigh-high boots to match.
