Jessica Simpson Chose Not To Do The Notebook

“I had read the script but turned it down because they wouldn’t budge on taking out the s*x scene.”
There was one scene in particular that really bothered her. It included the two leads having intercourse. While she tried asking them to remove the scene, they were not willing to budge. Her ideology and belief was very open and she was very focused on her conservative beliefs. These included her choice of not having intercourse before marriage. So according to her, the display of the same was also going against her values. The significance of the scene made it clear that the filmmakers would not remove it no matter what. So the actress chose to opt out of the movie altogether.
