The Internet is abuzz with a clip from Hilary Duff's upcoming film, War Inc., that has parents and fans of the young actress wondering just what happened to the squeaky-clean star.

In the outtake from the film, which features a scantily clad HilDuff getting intimate with a scorpion — yes, a scorpion! — while an astonished John Cusack looks on.

And yet, only months ago, the 20-year-old star told OK!'s Red Carpet Confidential blogger Valerie Nome that she wouldn’t disappoint her young fans by crossing over to the dark side. She even admitted turning down a role playing a pregnant girl with a drug problem because it was too edgy.

“I just feel like there’s so much time for that,” she said at the time. “I think there are actresses who want to get so far away from what people thought they were like or that they can do. It’s just shocking to me because you’re still so young. When I’m 25 or 30, I want to have some place to go and something I’ve never done. Now I think I can start to challenge myself and do different things that aren’t for such a young audience, but I think it’s important not to completely abandon them.”


Hilary stars with Cusack, his sister Joan Cusack and Oscar winners Marisa Tomei and Ben Kingsley in War Inc., which is out May 23.
