Hilary Duff has clearly been in a sharing mood lately.

Aside from posting very revealing bikini selfies and opening up about her soon-to-be ex-husband Mike Comrie, the 27-year-old "All About You" singer also recently revisited her 2004 relationship with 36-year-old Good Charlotte frontman Joel Madden. At the time, Hilary was 16 and Joel was 25. The two split in 2006.

"I had a pretty serious relationship at a young age that I ended, and it wrecked me for a good year and a half," Hilary told Cosmopolitan, via E! Online. "I didn't really enjoy being single."

When the magazine asked about when she lost her virginity, she didn't exactly make it too hard to connect the dots.

"I had a 26-year-old boyfriend. So everyone can make their own assumptions about what I was doing," she said.

And in the time since both Hilary and Joel -- who's been married to Nicole Richie since December 2010 -- have both moved on, the former Lizzie McGuire star has managed to maintain her good girl image in Hollywood. She credits the feat to "a massive friend cleanse" she did when she was 19 years old.

"That was really hard, to sit down with people and say, 'We can't be friends anymore,'" she revealed. "They were like, 'That's f**ked up. You're a b**ch.' But having a good reputation was important to me. ... That's not to say I didn't screw up and do little naughties here and there."
