Hilary Duff Shares Her Secret to Dealing With Mike Comrie Split

Hilary DuffAre they or aren't they? Speculation continues to surround Hilary Duff and her on-again-off-again husband Mike Comrie, on whether the pair are actually getting divorced or not. They officially separated last January after three years of marriage, but the duo continue to spend time together with their 2-year-old son Luca.

So how is the former Disney star handling the complicated relationship with her maybe-ex? She recently dished to Elle Canada that she has one very important thing to help her deal with the public scrutiny on her marriage.


"I have a good therapist!" the 27-year-old laughed. "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."

She said that she had to get over the "invasive" and "insensitive" exposure, and eventually became numb to the media attention on her private life. "The best way to handle it is by just owning your s---" she confessed. "I'm human and this is what happened. None of us is perfect."

Lizzie Maguire is all grown up, taking responsibility for her emotions and everything! That's actually kind of awesome, and an invaluable quality to have in Hollywood.

As for Hilary and Mike ... the two were recently spotted on a "date" together, holding hands no less (!!), and from some of her comments on the state of their relationship, it seems that a reconciliation is entirely possible.

In September, the singer told The Kyle and Jackie O Show, "I mean, if there wasn't a chance for getting back [together], I think we would've filed for divorce."

And back in May, she told Us Weekly that they were "not in a rush for anything," adding: "So we're just trying to enjoy our lives and figure out what makes us happy and it's working for us."

Plus the way she talks about him just sounds like any normal mom talking about her hubby. She also shared how Luca is barely starting to understand his parents' celeb status.

"I don't tell him anything about my job, but he knows Mommy's a singer and an actress," she revealed to the mag. "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."

Do you think Hilary Duff and Mike Comrie will work it out?
