Jessica Simpson is releasing her Open Book memoir, and the project is true to its title in every sense of the word.
Simpson revealed that she was up for Rachel McAdam’s role on The Notebook, but declined it because of the sex scene.
“I knew exactly what the movie was about because I had read the script,” she wrote, adding that she turned it down “because they wouldn’t budge on taking out the sex scene.”
“And it would have been with Ryan Gosling, of all people,” Simpson wrote. She admitted that Gosling was her 90s crush when they both auditioned for The Mickey Mouse Club.
Ironically Jessica Simpson viewed the movie for the first time on a plane, right after announcing her separation from ex-husband Nick Lachey in 2005. “Oh God, I thought,” she writes. “The most romantic movie in the world, and I was leaving Nick … The movie was on every screen, and I was swept up into it, wishing I had that great love that would be forever.”
