Reese on Jessica Simpson...not good



Reese made it clear that she is sickened by Simpson's ding bat image in an interview for Marie Claire. She said, "Creating a cultural icon out of someone who goes, 'I'm stupid, isn't it cute?' makes me want to throw daggers."

Reese said she hates how stars like Jessica Simpson and Paris Hilton play up to their sex appeal. "I want to say to them, 'My grandma did not fight for what she fought for, just so you can start telling women it's fun to be stupid," she said.

Simpson has said before that she wants to grow up and be just like Witherspoon. "I don't want a 'here today, gone tomorrrow' movie career. I want to be like a Reese Witherspoon."

Simpson's reply? "I didn't know Reese called me a dumb blonde," she said at the Dukes premiere in Tennessee. "I don't know what to say about that. She's Legally Blonde. I love Reese."

I guess it could be argued that a person should enjoy their success, any which way it happened. (Paris, Lindsey, Nicole and especially daughter-of-Joe, Jessica Simpson.)

But Reese is right. She worked really hard to be a businesswoman behind the scenes and get her career up to $15 million per picture. She may be contradicting herself though because the girl in Legally Blonds was practically a Jessica Simpson template! Anyway, yay Reese. We're all getting sick of the young dumb vaginas raking in all the money.

Sorry all! Just my opinion~~~~

There's a difference between playing a character who is ditzy (who actually turns out to be quite intelligent) and making ditziness your 24/7 image.

and just for the record: I have been head over heels in love with Reese for about as long as I can remember.

the character is Legally Blonde graduated from law school, so though she was an "airhead" she was of the extemely intelligent socially clueless kind. Socially clueless does not mean unintelligent, look at the social ineptness of computer geeks!

I've never seen a Resse Witherspoon movie, but I remember reading something on Drudge a few months back where she said she would never appear nude (fully or partially) nor would she war a two piece swimsuit.

I don't know much else about her, but she sounds like one of the more sensible people in Hollyweird.

Hi everyone
In Legally Blond she played a part that is not who she is i think she is mad about how jessica is making everyone know that she is like that all the time
reese sound like a smart person who does parts they are not her in real life there is a HUGE difference here
but that is just my side i guess

Legally Blonde is a movie where Reese acts like Jessica Simpson. Jessica doesn't need to act, she just is dumb. She has no REAL talent besides selling herself sexually. Not someone I would EVER look up to. Reese does not need to wear short shorts, and boob hanging out shirts to get roles in movies. She talented. That's how she lands $15 mill a picture.
