Jessica Simpson opened up about last year’s media criticism regarding her weight fluctuations – Let’s see what she has to say in Oprah Magazine:
Jessica’s been through a lot in the past few years, but she says her lowest point was the â€œmom jeansâ€ situation. â€œPeople [were] talking about my weight for an entire year,â€ she says. â€œIt’s like people just couldn’t stop talking about my weight fluctuating.â€
At first, Jessica says she tried to ignore the uproar over her 10-pound weight gain, but she couldn’t block out the barrage of negativity. â€œIt would bother any woman, I would think. I had to get to a place where I had to guard myself,â€ she says. â€œThe fact that I was famous last year for gaining 10 pounds, it’s ridiculous, and it’s really sad.â€
According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the average American woman wears a size 14. Jessica says the jeans she’s wearing in the now-infamous photos are a size 4. â€œI fluctuate from 4 to 6,â€ she says.
No matter what critics write, Jessica says she loves her curves and is comfortable with her weight. â€œI’m not going to ever be size 0, and I don’t want to weigh 90 pounds,â€ she says. â€œIt’s a really hard thing for me to talk about because I celebrate women of all sizes. I think that we’re all beautiful.â€
