Ashlee Won't Do Lesbo Scene

Pop beauty Ashlee Simpson's manager and father Joe Simpson has changed the gay plot in her movie debut Wannabe, because he's uncomfortable with his daughter playing a lesbian.

The former Baptist minister fears the star's chances of breaking into Hollywood would be hampered if she played a homosexual, so he ordered movie producers to alter the romantic comedy's script, reports American gossip site Pagesix.Com.

He explains, "I changed it. It doesn't work for her to be gay the first thing out. She said, 'But it's cool, it's edgy, it's different,' and of course the filmmakers were like, 'It's cool for a woman to be a lesbian.' She's going to be a huge movie star. She's like Meg Ryan or Cameron Diaz, with probably more depth. When we're done, she'll play it all."

--Let's re-read the bolded quote again. I'm sorry, I'm still laughing.

You Said

He's' an idiot. I read another article from GQ where he was going on and on about Jessica's double D's.
Creepy much?

Depth???? Depth??? So putting "gel" in your hair is deep? Nice. What has this world come to?

I think it's pretty obvious why Nick Lachey does not have the best relationship with his father-in-law. I can only imagine how much money he's made off of his two daughters . . .

Well, she lipsyncs - does that count as acting?

Says: Tony at December 16, 2004 06:17 PM

Yeah, cause playing gay (or semi gay) did nothing for Charlize Theron's or Hilary Swank's career, if you don't count that pair of Oscars.

I actually think Dad might have a point about Cameron Diaz though.

Says: Joe R. the Unabrewer at December 17, 2004 12:31 PM

She's like Meg Ryan or Cameron Diaz, with probably more depth.

I'd go so far as to say she has ten times as much depth as either of those actresses.

Of course, that's bearing in mind what I learned in junior high math: 10x0=0
