Hilary Duff told the ladies on "The Talk" Thursday that the entertainment industry looked at her differently after she had her son, Luca.

"I feel like I was judged for having a baby too soon, and getting married too soon, and now I'm pigeonholed for being a 'mom,'" Duff told the ladies.

The star of TV Land's "Younger" gave birth to Luca when she was 24, four years ago. (She divorced Luca's dad Mike Comrie earlier this year.)

Duff also added that, "lots of women in the industry that don't have a child yet are judged."

The group was talking about Jennifer Aniston, who has also been in the judgy spotlight over her marriage and motherhood status and recently spoke out about it.

Duff said the "Friends" star was a "beautiful role model, and a smart woman to have the courage to say these things in Hollywood."

Sadly, Duff said, "We are the most in demand and the most desirable, but the most judged and the hardest on one another."

Despite her assertion of pigeonholing, Duff has been working. The world got to know her early on as "Lizzie McGuire," but she's had a number of roles in films and TV shows since.

"It's so much scrutiny," she said. "Nobody cares about men's personal lives as much as women."
