Nick Lachey says he is shocked by all the hype being made over his ex-wife Jessica Simpson’s new curves.
“I wish her nothing but the best, and I hope she’s happy – whatever size that comes in,” he tells Extra. “I can’t believe it’s this big of a story and people are making such a huge deal about it. I’m never ceased to be amazed by people’s reactions to things.”
“I think this is absolutely ridiculous. People are being so mean,” Paula Abdul told Us. “People don’t realize that it’s damaging to one’s psyche. For women, it’s hard enough to be accepted for how you are.”Rose McGowan told Us she wants Simpson to say “eff off” to critics.
“It’s sad because you see a lot of male actors who gain a lot of weight in between roles,” she told Us. “The reality is, if I went and gained 30 pounds in between roles, I wouldn’t get roles. I think that’s sexism, and it drives me crazy!”
Added Jordana Brewster, “I think she is beautiful. I think it’s really, really hard in Hollywood because there is an absurd standard that is really hard. It absolutely sucks. She shouldn’t be judged so harshly.”
With two careers, six children and more likely on the way – what could Brad Pitt expect?
“It’s chaos at times, but there’s such joy in the house,” the Curious Case of Benjamin Button Oscar nominee, 45, tells Britain’s Daily Telegraph.
“I look and there’s our boy from Vietnam [Pax, 5] and our daughter from Ethiopia [Zahara, 3], and our girl was born in Namibia [Shiloh, 2], and our son is from Cambodia [Maddox, 7], and they’re brothers and sisters, man. They’re brothers and sisters and it’s a sight for elation.”
Not to mention twins Knox and Vivienne, born last July in France.
“We were four before, and we got into our rhythms and it worked. Then someone new comes in, and it discombobulates the movements for a moment, but then you settle in again and it just all works,” he tells the paper. “Everyone’s pretty well integrated. It’s not the first time new kids have come in.
“We have the capability to give a child a home, and let me tell you it’s selfish, too, because the reward has been extraordinary.”
In the case of the twins, the fun and the chaos come in a double dose.
“One seemed simple, and it’s just double the fun. It’s surprising how soon their personalities have started emerging. But it’s really important that everyone gets their individual time as well as group time together,” he says.
That includes partner Angelina Jolie.
“Angelina and I are together because we can enhance each other,” says Pitt. “I don’t want to waste any time because I’m with company I really, really love.”
