Jessica Simpson ‘Disappointed’ in Natalie Portman Over Comments About 1999 Bikini Pictures

Jessica Simpson Slams Natalie Portman for Being 'Confused' By Her Wearing a Bikini as a Virgin

Jessica Simpson 'Disappointed' in Natalie Portman for Shading Her Over a Virgin Bikini Photo

The "Public Affair" singer took offense at a recent interview with Portman, in which the actress said she was "confused" by a magazine cover featuring Simpson back in the day that left her questioning what kind of messaging our culture was sending to young women. "Like, I don't know what this is trying to tell me as a woman, as a girl", she told USA Today. She wrote a very lengthy (and very red) letter and posted it to Twitter, highlighting her perspective and saying she is "disappointed" by Portman's quip.

"I have always embraced being a role model to all women to let them know that they can look however they want, wear whatever they want and have sex or not have sex with whomever they want. The power lies within us as individuals", Simpson continued.

Jessica Simpson has beef with Natalie Portman and between this and George H.W. Bush's funeral, the '90s are back, baby! Jessica asked that Natalie "not shame other women for their choices". "I encourage you to do the same".

"It is a mistake to say anyone's name", she said.

Mystery: It's unclear what photo they were referring to.

During her heyday, much of the fascination with Simpson's celebrity concerned itself with her seemingly contrasting religious upbringing and highly sexualized image, perhaps most famously in her single about losing her virginity, "The Sweetest Sin".

At the time, Simpson was a virgin, and was photographed for a magazine wearing a bikini - a dichotomy that Portman claimed not to understand.

But she also acknowledges that she shouldn't have called out anyone specific. At the time, she was dating 98 Degrees singer Nick Lachey.

'Thank you for your words. I completely agree with you that a woman should be allowed to dress however she likes and behave however she likes and not be judged, ' she wrote.

In Vox Lux, Portman plays a singer named Celeste, who rises to pop superstardom.

'I didn't mean to shame you and I'm sorry for any hurt my words may have caused, ' Natalie added.

Natalie shared a similar sentiment while speaking to Entertainment Tonight on Wednesday.

'I would never intend to shame anybody and that was absolutely not my intention, ' she said. "I thought it was a great thing to see in a woman growing up".
