Hilary Duff Photographed with Cigarette, Says Holding for Friend Was “Bad Idea”


By Daniel Gates


Hilary Duff was spotted with a cigarette over the weekend, leading many outlets to pummel the new mom for picking up a nasty post-pregnancy habit.

The actress was out for the night in Los Angeles — and nowhere near absolutely adorable baby son Luca — when the shot was snapped.

Still, Duff felt the need to address her critics on Twitter.

On Monday, she wrote, “Yikes me holding a cigarette for my friend might have been a bad idea! pretty bummed about the photo.. Sorry guys, looks wors[e] than it is!”

Hopefully that snuffs out the controversy.

What do you think of Duff’s cigarette pic?
