  • Jessica Simpson Calls Out Natalie Portman

    It appears that a new celebrity feud is brewing! According to CNN Jessica Simpson has taken exception to something Natalie Portman has said about her. Here's how it all went down: Portman's been making the rounds promoting her new film, "Vox Lux," about a teen who becomes a pop star after a song she writes honoring a tragedy goes viral. The 37-year-old actress plays the adult version of the character, who ages through the course of the film. Portman mentioned Simpson in an interview with USA Today. "I remember being a teenager, and there was Jessica Simpson on the cover of a magazine saying 'I'm a virgin' while wearing a bikini, and I was confused," Portman said. "Like, I don't know what this is trying to tell me as a woman, as a girl." Simpson, who was a teen-pop sensation in the late '90s and early 2000s, was not thrilled by the shoutout and posted a statement to Portman on social media Wednesday.

"As public figures, we both know our image is not totally in our control at all times, and that the industry we work in often often tries to define us and box us in." Simpson went on to say, "However, I was taught to be myself and honor the different ways all women express themselves, which is why i believed then - and I believe now - that being sexy in a bikini and being proud of my body are not synonymous with having sex." "I have always embraced being a role model to all women to let them know that they can look however they want, wear whatever they want and have sex or not have sex with whomever they want," Simpson went on to say in her statement. "The power lies within us as individuals." She ended her note with what could be viewed as a dig at Portman's high-profile association with the #TimesUp movement. "I have made it my practice to not shame other women for their choices," Simpson posted. "In this era of Times Up and the great work you have done for women, I encourage you to do the same."
