It can be all too easy to imagine that celebrities look and feel perfect at all times. Which is why it always makes us feel a little better when they remind us that a lot of that “perfection” is just smoke and mirrors. So needless to say, we love that Jessica Simpson has opened up about weight fluctuation. Because, girl, BEEN THERE.
Simpson brought the topic up specifically in regards to her clothing line (called, wait for it…Jessica Simpson), and how her own experiences with weight made her prioritize body inclusivity. In a segment for CBS Sunday Morning, she said,
“It’s very important for me to let every woman feel included. If I make a shirt, I’m going to make sure every size is available. Because I have been every size, trust me.”
She also noted that she’s always surprised that other people are surprised that her line is so good. “People are shocked that they like my brand. Maybe because it’s not that expensive? Or maybe because I was a cheesy pop star back in the day. I have no idea.”
Jessica, we never, ever doubted you, or your clothing line.
Just for the record.
And when Jessica isn’t being a badass CEO and running her own business, she’s mom to the ADORABLE Maxwell and Ace, who she has with husband Eric Johnson. And between us, we could stare at pics of their precious family all day (we’re not saying we would — we’re just saying we could).
Thanks for being so real with us, Jessica! And thanks for making sure all women feel beautiful in the clothes you make.
