Jessica Simpson is no diva, says her latest movie co-star. Vivica A. Fox, who appears alongside the busty blonde in 'Major Movie Star', insists rumors Jessica behaved like a spoilt brat throughout filming are just "vicious lies."
She told People magazine: "Those vicious lies they put out were just that - lies."
"She was so much of a team player. She was gracious and so down to earth."
Vivica insists Jessica - who plays an out-of-work movie star who finds herself financially ruined - worked hard and made a lot of sacrifices.
She added: "She showed a lot of physicality, like 90 per cent of all her own stunts, and she sacrificed so much of her body for this movie."
The 43-year-old actress - who plays a tough sergeant helping Jessica's character get back into shape - also revealed how brave Jessica was when the singer accidentally injured her nose with a prop gun.
She recalled: "During the scene she looked really intense when I looked in her eyes, and I just thought she was really into it. But when the director Steve Miner yelled, 'Cut,' Jessica came over to me and said, 'Vivica I hit my nose with the gun.'"
"We got ice immediately. Most girls would've stopped right then and there, but she was ready to do another take. She's wonderful."
