Appearing on CBS’ The Talk, Duff said the last few years have been plagued with judgement from the public after marrying and giving birth at such a young age.
“I felt like I was judged for having a baby too soon and getting married too soon. And now, I’m pigeon-holed for being a mum,” she told the panel.
“There are lots of other women in the industry who don’t have children yet are judged for not having a child. As women we are the most in demand, and the most desirable but the most judged and hardest on one another under such scrutiny. Nobody cares about men’s personal lives as much as women.”
Women confess times they felt like a bad mother. Post continues after video.
The 29-year-old added that although in hindsight the marriage started too early, it felt right at the time and she wouldn’t change those decisions for anything.
“I had so much, so young and a full time job. I felt really ready to get married. However I don’t think we were mature enough to stick it out.
“I was 22 when I got married. I’m now divorced, I have a 4-year-old — I wouldn’t change any of it for the world,” she said.
Duff and Comrie began dating in 2007 and were married in August of 2010. They welcomed their son Luca in 2012 and by January of 2014 had announced their split.
Last year, Duff told Cosmopolitan magazine that it took years for her to realise the duo weren’t matched for one another.
