Hilary Duff did a Q&A with Top of the Pops and was asked who would win in a fight between herself and Avril Lavigne. “[laughs] Uh oh! I don’t know, she looks pretty tough,” Duff said. “Maybe she’d kick my butt. I’ve never gotten into a girl-fight before. I’m a pretty good, like, verbal fighter. But I don’t lose my temper too much. I don’t scream. But I have a pretty good evil eye.” Asked if she could give her the slap-down verbally, then stare her out until she ran away, Duff added, “Maybe! [laughs] No, she’s cool and her album is really great. I’ll be like ‘OK, someone in London wanted me to fight you, are you ready?'”
