Photo and Quotes From Jessica Simpson on Marie Claire January 2009 Cover

Jessica Simpson Is a Self-Help Bookworm

Jessica Simpson rocks the ruffled look on the January cover of Marie Claire, trading in her signature smile for a more sultry face. The singer has always been serious about her faith, especially with a minister for a father, and she talked about religion and how she uses self-help books in the interview. Here are some highlights:

  • On religion: "I've been contemplating taking a college course in religion. I love
    religion. I remember whenever the book The DaVinci Code came out, the Discovery Channel did this three-night piece on it that I TiVoed and then watched eight times."
  • On self-help books: "I am the first person to go to Barnes & Noble and buy the new
    self-help book. I like to fill out the surveys, then I get my friends' opinions on how I answered to see if I was being honest with myself or not."

Jessica is always the first one to admit that she's open to self-improvement, but at least she's always as honest as possible with her fans.
