Duff’s co-star crashes Tinder date

Hilary Duff’s Tinder date was interrupted by a reunion with her former Lizzie McGuire co-star Jake Thomas, the actor has revealed.

The 27-year-old actress recently revealed that she had signed up to the online dating app in a bid to find love.

One of her first meet ups through the app saw her going bowling with her mystery beau.

But Hilary’s ex Lizzie McGuire co-star Jake Thomas stumbled upon the actress on her evening out, and had no idea that she was on a date.

Instead he took the opportunity to enjoy a mini reunion with Hilary – 12 years after he last saw her.

“So we went bowling the other night…and we heard Hilary’s voice a few lanes down and we weren’t really sure if it was her at first,” Thomas told MTV News. “We looked over and eventually we were like, ‘Yeah, that’s her!’ Neither of us had seen her in well over a decade. We thought it’d be funny if we sent a drink over. So the waiter goes and brings the drink to her and she looks over and sees us and then we all hugged and talked and caught up a little bit. [Duff] looked at me and she’s like, ‘You’re a man!’ She kept saying, ‘You’re a man! This is weird!’”

“I had no idea she was on a Tinder date! No clue. After we saw her, it was probably a hot topic between her and her friends, so I don’t know if it altered the night in a good way or a bad way.”

Hilary starred as the titular Lizzie in the hit Disney Channel TV series from 2001 to 2004, while Jake appeared as her brother Matt McGuire.
