A photograph of Hilary Duff has gone viral showing her seemingly in the gym and it's leaving people baffled.
A picture of a celeb in the gym, why is that so confusing? I hear you ask.
Well, if that question did pop into your head, you should probably take a look at the image of the Cheaper by the Dozen actor first.
The image which has been widely circulating on social media - and has been reshared on X (formerly known as Twitter) by Daily Loud - shows what appears to be Duff standing in a gym, pulling her face mask down and looking to the side.
The actor is wearing gym leggings and a white baggy t-shirt, tied up at the front.
What's so viral about that?
Well, let's just say it looks like Duff has been smashing leg day out the park.
So much so that people are flocking to social media to question whether the photograph is real or whether it's been edited.
One X user said: "Someone post the real pic."
However, another commented: "Nah thats hilary buff."
"Lizzi maguire grew up to become G.I Jane?" a third wrote.
And a fourth added: "GODDAMN, I apologize, I wasn’t familiar with your game Lizzy."
Look, we are living in the Kim K days after all, so it's fair enough people are sceptical.
However, according to Cultura Colectiva, the image is reportedly very much real and dates back to August 2021 during the coronavirus pandemic - which would make sense with Duff wearing a mask.
The outlet also reports that Duff was in a gym in Los Angeles at the time the photograph was taken.
Although, what we should really just be questioning is why we're obsessing over the picture at all and feeling like we have a right to comment on a woman's body. Why can't we just let the girl gym in peace?
The 36-year-old has previously spoken out about her workout routine in an interview with Women's Health last year.
The 'Someone's Watching Over Me' singer reflected on her relationship with her body and how her career path has made her question what she looks like. However, she explained that she's got to a place where she's 'proud' of her body.
She said: "I’m proud that it’s produced three children for me. I’ve gotten to a place of being peaceful with the changes my body has gone through."
And whether the viral picture of her supposedly in the gym is real or not, in her 2022 interview Duff reminded that the 'most important part' of yourself to work on is 'the inside'.
Cheers to that.
UNILAD has reached out to Duff's reps for comment.
