Dad: Jessica Simpson Turns Down 'Porn Star' Role

  1. [​IMG]She's always been herself on camera, but Jessica Simpson isn't ready to show all of herself on camera.

    "The last script that came to us was for Jessica to be a porn star," Jessica's father and manager, Joe Simpson, told PEOPLE at Thursday's ABC Television Critics Association party in Beverly Hills.

    "We were promised we would win an Oscar with that," says Simpson, 49. "I was like, 'Eh, we'll just buy a [statue of a] little man and keep our clothes on.' "

    Since she shot to fame in 2003 with ex-husband Nick Lachey on MTV's Newlyweds Jessica Simpson, 27, has been receiving quirky TV-show proposals "every day," according to her father.

    "We're pitched those a lot," he says. "There are a lot of cool ones, and a lot of really strange ones."

    Currently, Papa Simpson is promoting ABC's fall series The Women's Murder Club, which he is producing with Rush Hour director Brett Ratner. No plans are underway for Jessica or her younger sister Ashlee Simpson, 22, to appear on the show.

    "They're very busy, and they're happy," Joe Simpson says of his daughters. "Jessica has three more movies to shoot; she has a new record coming in September. If the right role came up, of course, we'd never turn that down."
     
  2. I'm sorry, but Jess and Oscar I don't see ever happening, no matter what script.
     
  3. ^^
    Agreed!!!
     
  4. Yeah right! An Oscar?? Is he serious?
     
  5. Oh god, Joe, GET OVER YOURSELF.
     
  6. totally nothing wrong with a father and managing his daughters porn movies? WTF!!!! he is a scary man
     
  7. The guy is a SICKO
     
  8. why what did he do wrong?
    he and his daughter turned down the role, i would have too. he said the people who sent him the script promised them an oscar if she accepted. that's all he was saying, i like him. he is cool!
     
  9. i don't understand your guyses comments! what did he do that was so wrong? please explain! from the statement he made.....i'm confused
     
  10. yup i agree
     
  11. I thought at least you were supposed to be a mediocre actress to get an Oscar. Was I mistaken?
     
  12. Her look is quite appropriate to be in such movie. She doesn't have that elegance look.
     
  13. I think people are referring to the fact that, in the past, Joe Simpson has said some rather inappropriate sexual comments about his own daughter.
     
  14. porn+jessica simpson=oscar :nogood: in a million years :rolleyes::rolleyes:
     
  15. He has said things in the past that were really inapropriate.
