Hilary-Duff feels desensitised after split

Hilary Duff feels "a bit desensitised" following her split from Mike Comrie.  

The 27-year-old star, who has son Luca, two, with the retired professional ice hockey player, admits she couldn't have coped with all the negative attention she received when they announced their separation in January after three years of marriage without a "good therapist."  

Asked how she handled the difficult time, the 'All About You' hitmaker told the December issue of Elle Canada magazine: "I have a good therapist! I've dealt with [attention] for such a long time. But some of the bigger struggles that came my way in the past two years - like my separation or when my parents separated - were the first times I had to deal with people knowing about something personal happening to my family. It just felt so invasive and insensitive. It got really gross, and I think part of you gets a bit desensitised. The best way to handle it is by just owning your s**t. I'm human and this is what happened. None of us is perfect."  

The blonde beauty and Mike, 34, have been working on their relationship for much of the past year and were spotted holding hands at a Halloween party late last month, sparking rumours their marriage is back on track.  

Meanwhile, their son Luca is beginning to realise Hilary is famous.  

She said: "I think he's starting to figure it out, but I don't really know what he thinks yet. I don't tell him anything about my job, but he knows Mommy's a singer and an actress. We have this book called 'Goodnight Los Angeles'. It's like, 'Goodnight, movie stars and entertainers of Los Angeles!' and it shows people working on a set and having their names in lights. Mike's always telling Luca 'This is where Mommy is!' when I'm at work."
