She’s coming clean.

Hilary Duff admitted she did not tune in to “Laguna Beach” despite her hit single “Come Clean” being the MTV reality show’s theme song.

“I was not a huge [fan],” Duff, 35, said on the “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” aftershow Thursday. “I just … I didn’t watch.”

The “How I Met Your Father” star explained that she was in the midst of promoting her music career on the road when the series aired from 2004 to 2006.

“In a moment in time when you could not record TV shows, I was on tour,” she said. “So, I missed a huge chunk of, like, big things that people talk about that I didn’t get to experience.”

But Duff did say she “loved” that “Come Clean” was the show’s anthem.

“My song was, like, the theme song, and I loved that,” she said. “I did love that because, I mean, I [basically] lived at MTV for a while.”

When Andy Cohen pressed his guest on whether she had made any money from her song being featured on the hit show, Duff said she doubted it.

“I definitely didn’t get super rich by them using it as the theme, and I am not going to pretend to know what went on in the background for them to use it,” she said of MTV securing the rights to the track. “But they used it.”

The actress also pointed out that the network had used her song “Sweet Sixteen” for another one of its hit shows, “My Super Sweet 16,” which ran for 10 seasons from 2005 to 2017.

“They love me over there,” she joked. “I don’t know how much money I made from it. I don’t think a lot. But maybe Disney [which owns Hollywood Records] did.”

While she may not have kept up with the love triangle between “Laguna Beach” cast members Lauren Conrad, Kristin Cavallari and Stephen Colletti, Duff does have a major admiration for her “A Cinderella Story” co-star Jennifer Coolidge.

“My favorite moment was her rubbing salmon on her face while filming … and talking about the omegas,” the “Lizzie McGuire” alum recalled on “WWHL” when a fan asked about her memories of the “White Lotus” star, adding that her 10-year-old son, Luca, once had a similar moment when he rubbed sushi all over his face at the age of 3.

“I looked at him and was like, ‘You’re just rubbing raw salmon on your face,’ and it’s, like, soft, and he liked it, and it reminded me of her, and she’s just everything,” Duff said.

The “Younger” star also gushed over Coolidge’s recent success as Tanya in the HBO show.

“I can’t even begin to tell you how much I’ve just been, like, obsessed with this past year for Jennifer Coolidge,” she said. “It’s been really cool to see.”

Duff added that Coolidge, 61, has “always been a lovely human being.”

“I’m really proud to see her moment, and it just reminds me that being in this industry, I feel so lucky that anything can happen at any stage,” she said. “It’s so dope.”
