Hilary Duff, the missing piece of Brooklyn's varied mom-scape, has finally arrived: In an interview with Elle, the actress reveals that she has uprooted her life as a cool celebrity mom in LA to be a cool celebrity mom in Brooklyn, so that she can play a "publishing industry hotshot" in Sex and the City-creator Darren Star's new TV show, Younger.
When the inevitable subject of her fellow Brooklyn moms comes up, Duff's Brooklyn mom-ness really shines: "With all the moms I'm like, 'Wait a minute, Are you 20 or 50?' I can't tell." And when her interviewer remarks that they're all six feet tall and "rail thin," Duff replies, "It's amazing. So inspiring." Aw.
So in which stroller-swarmed, celebrity-riddled Brooklyn enclave does Ms. Duff live—Brooklyn Heights, Cobble Hill, or Park Slope? Please leave your conspiracy theories in the comments.
