Hilary Duff, All Grown Up, Strips For Maxim

|

It seems like Hilary Duff, who just turned 21, has been trying to shed her Tween Queen status for years — and, from the looks of it, her upcoming Maxim spread might help her effort a little bit. On the cover of January’s “Sexiest Stars of 2009″ issue, Duff dons a very sexy dress and lingerie while explaining why she plays a temptress in her music video for “Reach Out.”

“I was ready to do something different. The intention was not to be overtly sexual, I’m not naked. I do have little shorts on in it … It’s good to show different sides of youself.”

Translation: In Hollywood, sex sells. It’s crass, we know. But just ask Miley “Sexy Pics” Cyrus, who at 15 years old was ranked No. 35 on Forbes‘ list of the 100 richest and most influential personalities. Duff didn’t make the cut. [Source: Oh No They Didn't via Maxim]
