Melbourne, Apr 7 (ANI): American actress/singer Hilary Duff is all set to shed her good girl image with a raunchy role in her upcoming film.

The 20-year-old star plays the role of a “slutty” pop star in the John Cusack film, War, Inc, based on war profiteers.

“She played a pop idol from central Asia. So, she was like a Hilary but not Hilary, because Hilary is so classy, but like a real, and I won’t name names, but a real slutty pop star. … Hilary is the opposite of that, of course, News.com.au quoted Cusack, as telling MTV.

I think for her to play that, or to parody that, was really great.

“I think probably people wouldn’t know how talented she is. I mean, she’s a great actress. I just spent the entire fall with her and she was a revelation every day. I don’t think people know that yet, but they’re gonna,” he added.

The Cinderella Story star also admitted that she was hesitant to play the part of a singer, in fear of being typecast.

He (agent) was like, ‘I got this script, John Cusack wrote it. And I was like, ‘Really? That’s awesome, I love John, Duff said.

But then he says, ‘But you’d have to play a pop star.’ And I was like, ‘Oh nooooooooooo. I don’t want to play a pop star. I don’t want to sing!’ ”

“Nobody thought I could do anything different. It was tough for a while. I was stuck in this bubble of Hilary Duff, and no one was really taking a chance on me.

So I was like, ‘I’ll just make the record, because I’m not going to do another movie like that.’ I wanted to challenge myself or not do it,” she added. (ANI)
