1. Lizzie McGuire was fabulous…really, really fabulous.
3. She got to stand in-between these two hotties in Cheaper by the Dozen.
Seriously, Tom Welling and Jared Padalecki in one scene? That’s one lucky girl.
4. She managed to make Casper even cuter than before.
Hilary Duff as Wendy is too adorable.
5. She got to kiss this guy…
Hello, Chad Michael Murray!
6. And this guy.
Remember when Aaron Carter made a cameo on Lizzie McGuire and the whole gang danced in his music video? Oh, and when they dated in real life? So amazing.
7. She even looked good as a brunette!
The Lizzie McGuire Movie was awesome…in case you forgot.
8. She could actually sing!
Every song Hilary has ever sung is pretty fantastic.
9. Hilary never buzzed off all her hair or got married in Vegas.
She just had an amazing career, got married, and had her adorable son, Luca…no big deal.
10. Laguna Beach used her song “Come Clean” as their theme song.
Let’s be honest, LC, Stephen, and Kristen’s love triangle wouldn’t have been as spectacular without this theme song.
11. She always puts family first.
Hilary has always been BFFs with her sister Haylie.
12. She rocked colored locks before it was cool.
Kesha’s rainbow locks have nothing on the original red hues that Hilary sported on Lizzie McGuire.
13. She made ribbon dancing cool. Well, sort of.
Cadet Kelly is one of the greatest Disney Channel original movies ever…you know you agree.
