Yes, you read that right. Jessica Simpson loves Angelina Jolie. Sadly, for all the 14-year-olds in the world, we don’t mean physical love – more that Jessica thinks that Angelina is inspirational and that.
Now, we’re sure plenty of people find Angelina Jolie inspirational – for snagging herself Brad Pitt, not for Sky Captain And The World Of Tomorrow – but Jessica Simpson has her own, very special designs on Angelina Jolie. Mainly all that adopting she does – Jessica wants in on that action.
Since finally splitting up with Nick Lachey last year, Jessica Simpson (CDs) has been a bit quieter than usual. There have been none of the usual stories about Jessica Simpson having sex with the Jackass cast, no creepy statements about how brilliant Jessica Simpson’s breasts are from her Dad, no shonky speculation about Jessica Simpson being a Bond girl. Sure, there was the big George W Bush mix-up a few weeks ago, but that hardly counts.
Face it – Jessica Simpson needed to get back on the publicity wagon,
and it looks like she’s found the golden ticket: she wants to adopt
kids just like Angelina Jolie. Speaking on US TV show Extra, Jessica
"I think Angelina Jolie has done amazing, amazing things, and
the international adoption rate just since her has skyrocketed. It’s
unbelievable. I want to adopt, and I plan to adopt before I have my own
Of course, Jessica Simpson was only being hypothetical.
Despite donating money to various orphanages for years, she’s not going
to, like, actually adopt anyone right now, as her publicist says:
"It’s true she’s exploring options… but nothing has been finalised yet."
Simpson’s wishes to start adopting raise a number of big questions,
though. Namely, how is Angelina Jolie going to react to all of this? On
the one hand, Angelina could be flattered that she’s started a new
Hollywood adoption trend; but on the other hand, we can see Jolie being
a bit riled by all this sudden attention from Jessica Simpson. After
all, children are Angelina Jolie’s inspiration, not Jessica’s, and also won’t Jessica Simpson be standing in the way of Angelina Jolie’s quest to adopt the entire population of the world?
And also, has Jessica’s sudden interest in adopting orphans turned Jennifer Aniston‘s sick, twisted Bermuda Triangle into a sick, twisted Bermuda Rhombus? And, you know, stuff.
