Although Jessica is held aback, she genuinely believes that this scrutiny wouldn’t have taken place in today’s times. Jessica admits that she’s happy times are changing now.

Ms.Simpson talks about her autobiography
Jessica admits that her Jessica Simpson Mom jeans title didn’t affect her as much as her obsession with weight in her 2005 movie, Dukes of Hazzards, did.
She clearly confesses in her autobiography, Open Book.The Daisy Duke moment actually made a standard of size and weight. Is she fat or is she thin, is every story for my whole career?
She writes in her book that it is not easy but it hurts her. Jessica says in Open Book: ” I feel like we all look in the mirror and see our flaws. My flaws affect me so much and they weren’t even flaws. But people make a huge deal of my flaws. That’s when I realize that oh I do have some flaws, according to the world standard.”
Her book is out now.
