Hilary Duff looks to be getting some mileage out of a pair of bygone rivalries, MSN Entertainment reports.

“It’s hard to find people who don’t feel like they’re in competition with you,” the singer/actress, 20, says in the May issue of Allure. For instance, singer Avril Lavigne, who four years ago said of Duff, “I don’t really like her.”

According to Duff, “I said something about how she didn’t like her fans dressing like her, and how she should appreciate that because it’s a compliment. She called me a goody-goody.” (As well as a “kiss-ass.”)

“Everyone is trying to prove who they are, and their position,” Duff continues. “So, I’m ‘the good girl.’ She’s ‘the bad girl’ or ‘the party girl.’ ”

As for actress Lindsay Lohan and their alleged battle for Aaron Carter’s affections, Duff says, “Supposedly, I stole (her) boyfriend. We were, like, 13! And I’ve never stolen anyone’s boyfriend! I don’t know how you do that! ... She was talking about it and I wasn’t. It made us both look bad ... We are fine now, by the way.”

Another thing that “looked bad,” says Duff, was dating rocker Joel Madden when she was barely old enough to drive and he was hitting the quarter-century mark. Still, she remembers, “He was never nervous, like, ‘I could get arrested.’ ”
