SHREVEPORT, La. -- Jessica Simpson hasn’t gotten a nose job, but she certainly did a “job” on her nose!
The multi-talented Simpson injured her nose on the set of “Major Movie Star,” In Touch Weekly was first to report.
“I was running with a gun over my head and fell and either fractured or broke my nose!” she told In Touch in their new issue. “It’s all bruised and swollen. The magic of makeup is doing wonders. Hopefully, when the swelling goes down, my nose will go back to normal.”
Simpson’s rep confirmed the injury to Access Hollywood, but revealed that Jessica’s nose had not actually been broken in the accident after all:
“Her nose is not broken, she did not have to have it reset,” said the rep. “She bruised it badly on the set of ‘Major Movie Star’ about two weeks ago. She was in a combat scene and accidentally hit herself with a big gun on her nose. But she was able to continue shooting the movie.”
“Major Movie Star,” directed by Steve Miner (“Lake Placid,” “Halloween H2O“), follows a naive pop singer (Simpson) who enlists in the military to win the approval of a producer who considers her unsuitable for his new military-themed movie. Once she arrives at the military base, she realizes she’s made a mistake, but decides to stick to it so she won’t let her country down.
And Jessica certainly “sticks to it” on the set in Louisiana — She reportedly went through boot camp training with the U.S. Army to prepare for role, and does many of her own stunts!
Perhaps she just needs to be a little more careful when she’s waving guns around.
“Major Movie Star,” also starring Vivica A. Fox, Cheri Oteri and Steve Guttenberg,is set to hit theaters in 2008.
