Duff wants son to avoid showbusiness career

London: Singer-actress Hilary Duff wants to keep her son away from a career in showbusiness because she grew up feeling "isolated" as a child star.

The 24-year-old, who is expecting a baby boy with husband Mike Comrie next year, was thrust into the spotlight as a 14-year-old with the lead role in Disney TV show "Lizzie MCGuire".

"I don`t think there`s a way to stop it - I think kids know what they want but I just pray to God that`s not what he (my son) wants. From when I started to now, the industry is so different. I mean, there`s such an obsession with people`s private lives that I really don`t think was there before," contactmusic.com quoted Duff as saying.

"These shows about digging into people`s lives and wanting to embarrass everybody and show that, like, we`re human beings, too. It`s just so invasive, and it`s just a different business than it used to be," she added.
