Hilary Duff steps out in denim wrap dress just days after Ashton Kutcher’s problematic comments about her as a teen resurfaced

Hilary Duff stepped out wearing a denim wrap dress on Wednesday in West Hollywood.

The actress, 35, kept things casual as she went about her day, opting to complement the all-denim number with a pair of maroon trainers as she flung a large black handbag over her shoulder.

The former Lizzie McGuire star scooped her dark tresses up and away from her face and shielded her eyes with a pair of sunglasses.

The outing comes amid a social media storm for the actress, in which an unearthed viral video clip featured Hollywood star Ashton Kutcher making problematic comments about her when she was a teenager.

In an old clip on Punk’d, the actor spoke about a then-15-year-old Hilary shortly after her Disney Channel tenure came to an end, and compared her to twin actresses Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, who were 17 at the time, claiming that everyone was ‘waiting’ for them all to come of age.

He said: ‘Hilary Duff is in Lizzie McGuire, she also has an album out. She’s going to be in a movie called Cheaper by the Dozen. And she’s one of the girls that we’re all waiting for to turn 18. Along with the Olsen twins.’

At the time, the Come Clean songstress had starred alongside Ashton, now 45, in the 2003 comedy with Steve Martin and had appeared on an episode of his MTV prank show.

The video went ablaze on social media just days after another old clip, in which Ashton had spoken about having to kiss his now-wife Mila Kunis on screen when she was 14 and he was 19 when they starred together on That 70s Show.

He said: I’m like thinking this is slightly illegal, right…’

In that unearthed clip – which was part of an interview on The Rosie O’Donnell Show in 2002 – Mila alleged that their That 70s Show co-star Danny Masterson offered Ashton $10 to French kiss her on set.

She said: ‘I never kissed a guy… I was a 14-year-old little girl and I was extremely scared for my life.

Danny goes, “Dude, I’ll give you $10 if you French kiss her” What, if you stick your tongue in my mouth?’

The old interview made its way onto social media as it emerged that Ashton and his wife sent a letter of support to Danny in the wake of his rape conviction, which will see him serve 30 years behind bars for raping two women 20 years ago.
