Jessica Simpson Opens Up About Constant Scrutiny Over Her Weight: ‘It Hurts’

Jessica Simpson talks about how the endless criticism about her weight has affected her.

In a recent interview with “extra”, journalist Terri Seymour asked the actress if she had gotten used to the constant interest in her weight.

“Oh, God, no,” she replied. “Any woman?”

She then recalled getting advice from a Hollywood icon when she made her acting debut in the 2005 comedy “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

“Lynda Carter warned me on the set of ‘Dukes of Hazzard,'” she shared. “She said, ‘I’ll always be Wonder Woman and I’ll be compared to Wonder Woman, and that’s what you’re doing here as Daisy Duke. Just know that the words ‘Daisy Duke’ will follow you for the rest of your career.

Added Simpson: “I’ve been criticized and it hurts, but I’ve had all the weights and I’m proud of it.”

In the film, and the CBS television series of the same name, Daisy Duke was a waitress at a local tavern whose signature attire consisted of denim shorts and a crop top.

“I decided, ‘Okay, everyone is going to talk about my weight all the time, I might as well make money off of it and turn it into a clothing and acceptance business,'” she said, referring to her fashion line. , The Jessica Simpson Collection, which she launched in 2005.

Since welcoming her third child, Birdie, in 2019, the businesswoman has repeatedly spoken about her weight loss journey on social media. Simpson told “Extra” that she contacted a nutritionist to improve her eating habits after becoming a mother of three.

Now, Simpson said he feels healthy.

She explained: “I feel like before I had kids and all the hormones go haywire. I feel younger, actually.”

The “With You” singer continued, “I have a lot more energy and yes, I can wear all the clothes that I have in storage that I saved for Maxwell and Birdie. Maybe Birdie will beat them because Maxwell has already beaten me!

In addition to Maxwell, 10, and Birdie, 3, Simpson also shares 9-year-old Ace with her husband Eric Johnson.

Earlier this year, the fashion designer celebrated losing 100 pounds for the third time in Instagram.

She uploaded a selfie of her posing in a bikini. “I’ve gained and lost 100lbs 3 times so I never thought this moment could happen but I’m finally on spring break wearing a BIKINI! she cheered in the caption.

Simpson said “hard work”, “determination” and “self-esteem” helped her reach her milestone.

At the bottom of the post, he wrote, “Enjoyed a good proud cry today.”
