Hilary Duff has abandoned her squeaky clean image in the new film "War Inc."
The former "Lizzie Maguire" star is hoping her role as an outrageous Middle Eastern pop star Yonica Babyyeah in the movie will let her be recognized as an adult.
The role is a far cry from her Disney character. One scene in the film required the 20-year-old to drop a scorpion in her pants in a bid to seduce actor John Cusack's character.
Breakingnews.ie has quoted Duff as saying, "I got to play a character far away from who I am in my real life. I got to be a little bit of a bad girl for a change."
"War Inc." will be released in theatres on May 23.
