Jessica Simpson insists that despite releasing five albums, starring in a successful TV series and having a leading role in her second major motion picture opening on Friday, that she is just a "normal girl." Well, we are not sure we believe that about her real life, but in her new movie, Employee Of The Month, she plays just that, a normal discount-store cashier. She also sees the role as representing the beginning of a "grown-up" chapter in her life. We are certainly excited to see what fun news the new grown up Jessica brings us! Here's more:
The role is an intentional departure from her sexy stint as Daisy Duke in last year's "Dukes of Hazzard." But, says the 26-year-old starlet, it also represents a new grown-up chapter in her life as she learns to take charge of her career, her future and herself.
"I'm kind of doing it by doses and, along the way, figuring myself out and learning to belong to myself, learning to be committed to myself," she says. "I see a lot of change in my life right now. I'm really grasping hold of what I want for the first time."
We are headed to an advanced screening of Employee Of The Month tonight, so we will report back on the "grown up" Jessica shortly! More pics of Jessica at Hyde carrying her favorite Fendi bag and sporting some serious black nail polish, so read more
