OF COURSE, NOBODY WOULD BELIEVE SHE WAS ACTING: Overprotective golden-egg farmer Joe Simpson has forced the makers of Wannabe to rewrite the part being played by Ashlee Simpson in the movie because originally she was being asked to play a lesbian. Apparently he was afraid that her movie career might be hampered if the first thing she played had a lesbian storyline, and we can see his point: look at Anna Friel; she played a lesbian and had no sort of career afterwards. Mind you, that's because she's a rotten actress... oh, hang on, we get it now.

Of course, it's probably just as well to have the part re-written: can you imagine the slew of "she's just moving her lips" jokes that would have followed?
