Pregnant pop star Hilary Duff wants to keep her son from a career in showbusiness because she grew up feeling "isolated" as a child star.
The singer/actress, who is expecting a baby boy with husband Mike Comrie next year (11), was thrust into the spotlight as a 14 year old with the lead role in Disney TV show Lizzie MCGuire.
Duff went on to forge a successful music career, and although she is convinced her fame drove a lot of her friends away, she "wouldn't trade" her formative years for a more conventional upbringing.
She tells CNN talk show host Piers Morgan, "My sister and I really showed an interest in this (performing) and dedication, and (my mother) was like, 'How can I tell my kids no?' It's the same as kids that are going into sports. Parents support them and push them.
"(I missed out on) stupid things like passing notes in school and having a locker and riding the bus, I mean, really stupid things. Once I started touring... my life... was very isolated, you know? I lost a lot of my friends. I was on a totally different playing field than anybody else. And I grew up a lot faster, and I think that it definitely put me in a different place. But I wouldn't trade it.
"I had this amazing life. I had these amazing experiences from a young age. And I think I was good at separating that and being, like, OK, well, they get this, but I get this, you know?"
However, Duff is hoping her son will not pursue a career in the limelight, as she is worried about how fame has changed in the past decade.
She adds, "I don't think there's a way to stop it - I think kids know what they want but I just pray to God that's not what he (my son) wants. From when I started to now, the industry is so different. I mean, there's such an obsession with people's private lives that I really don't think was there before. These shows about digging into people's lives and wanting to embarrass everybody and show that, like, we're human beings, too. It's just so invasive, and it's just a different business than it used to be."
