Turns out “The Perfect Man” isn’t so much about men as women — particularly pic’s 17-year-old topliner Hilary Duff.
Co-star Heather Locklear divulged that she signed on to “Perfect” within two hours of receiving the script, citing Duff as chief motivation.
Did Duff seek on-set advice from the veteran thesp? “If anything, I was watching her,” Locklear said.
Already a red-carpet pro, Duff spent 45 minutes greeting fans and press before entering Universal’s CityWalk cinema.
Another “Perfect” femme star of the night was songwriter Diane Warren, who contributed to the pic’s soundtrack and was being circulated around the after-party like a rock star by Universal music topper Kathy Nelson.
Joining Universal brass at the Hard Rock Cafe bash was pic producer Dawn Wolfrom; scribe Gina Wendkos; and U’s Holly Bario, who shepherded the pic at the studio.
