In the March issue of More magazine, Julianne Moore made a statement that “I don’t want my daughter or her friends to be interested in Jessica Simpson; I want them to be interested in what’s happening in their own lives,” referring to the fact that she’d rather her daughter lead her own life instead of reading about other people’s lives in tabloid magazines.
Of course, the interwebs picked up that article — including one of those tabloid magazines, Us Weekly — and ran with headlines saying that Moore bashed Simpson. On Friday’s episode of “Anderson,” Anderson Cooper asks Moore about the article, and she quickly puts the idea that the statement had anything to to with Simpson to rest.
