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.”
