"It’s hard to say that you really can have it all," she admits in the interview. "I think you can to a certain degree, but fully loaded, pedal-all-the-way-down is tough. You’re missing out on something, either on the career or on the family. When I’m really busy with work, I feel extremely guilty."

"After I had Luca [in 2012], I went out to, like, the breast-pump store—I was still huge—and I just had a comfortable outfit on.

It was such a happy time that honestly I didn’t care; it wasn’t until later that I realized how mean and invasive it was," she explains.

"I don’t want to say I wouldn’t get married again, but it’s not important to me," says Duff. "I don’t feel I would need to be married to have another child. If I felt strongly enough toward someone or if someone felt strongly about it [marriage], I might say okay. But it’s not essential."
