UPDATE: Natalie Portman later commented, in response to Jessica Simpson‘s clapback, “Thank you for your words. I completely agree with you that a woman should be allowed to dress however she likes and behave however she likes and not be judged. I only meant to say I was confused – as a girl coming of age in the public eye around the same time – by the media’s mixed messages about how girls and women were supposed to behave. I didn’t mean to shame you and I’m sorry for any hurt my words may have caused. I have nothing but respect for your talent and your voice that you use to encourage and empower women all over the globe.”
Jessica Simpson is not happy with Natalie Portman shaming her over a magazine cover she appeared in almost 20 years ago.
In an interview with USA Today, published on Tuesday, the 37-year-old Oscar winner said, “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. Like, I don’t know what this is trying to tell me as a woman, as a girl.”
