Jessica Simpson’s former trainer, Harley Pasternak (who helped Jess get in shape for her role in Major Movie Star) approves of Jessica’s fuller figure:
She has curves where a woman needs to have curves. We all go a little bit up and a little bit down. But she’s healthy. She’s still sexy. She’s still a beautiful woman. And I have no problem with the way she looks.’ He adds, ‘I think if more people looked the way she looks now, the country would be a lot healthier.’ “
Jessica was a fantastic client. I think Jessica has a really healthy perspective on her healthy body image and looks like a woman. I would take her body any day over somebody who’s emaciated and looks unhealthy.”
The celebrity trainer wasn’t the only one who defended Jessica’s new figure – Ashlee Simpson was also there to support her sister – here’s what she had to say:
â€œSince when did a woman’s weight become newsworthyâ€¦ I am completely disgusted by the headlines concerning my sister’s weight. A week after the inauguration and with such a feeling of hope in the air for our country, I find it completely embarrassing and belittling to all women to read about a woman’s weight or figure as a headline on Fox News (â€Jessica Simpson Shocks Fans With Noticeably Fuller Figureâ€.)
â€œAll women come in different shapes, sizes, and forms and just because you’re a celebrity, there shouldn’t be a different standard. Is this something you would say to your wife, daughter, mother, grandmother, or even a friend? I seriously doubt it.
â€œHow can we expect teenage girls to love and respect themselves in an environment where we criticize a size 2 figure? Now can we focus on the things that really matter. -Ash â€
