In a candid new interview with Cosmo, Hilary Duff opens up about her marriage to Mike Comrie, the couple’s split… and Aaron Carter’s crush on her.

Duff, who filed for divorce from Comrie last month, explained, "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."

How does she feel about marriage now? "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."

Last year, Duff’s ex, Aaron Carter, tweeted that Hilary was the love of his life!

When Cosmo asked about Carter’s declaration of love, Hilary said, "Him reaching out through social media? It's ridiculous! But then people do it all the time, like Chris Brown and Karrueche? Come on, guys. Keep it between text messages.”
