Simpson: 'I Don't Want To Be Daisy Duke'

Jessica Simpson has no regrets about gaining weight since starring in The Dukes of Hazzard, insisting she doesn't want to look like DAISY DUKE.
The pop star embarked on a gruelling diet and exercise regime to slim down, so she could don the character's famous denim shorts in the 2005 comedy film.
The singer now flaunts a fuller figure after piling on a few pounds - but is adamant she loves her shape.
In an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Simpson says, "I love my curves. I'm not going to ever be size zero, and I don't want to weigh 90 pounds."
When the host told her she looked like she weighed 90 pounds (40 kilograms) in the film, Simpson replied, "I didn't weigh 90 pounds. But I was definitely smaller. But that was Daisy Duke, that's a role. I was playing a role. I don't want to look like Daisy Duke every day. I don't want to wear a bathing suit every day."

Does she not want to be a multi-millionaire anymore? She has a fantastic voice and is talented but she would never have achieved the fame and fortune she has now if she were too fat to play Daisy Duke. Maybe she has enough money now to pig out and let herself go. But she won't be the star her fans know and love.
