Natalie Portman is clarifying her recent comments about Jessica Simpson that caused the fashion mogul to clap back on social media. Portman said, "Like, I don't know what this is trying to tell me as a woman, as a girl".

On Wednesday, Simpson fired back at the comments on Instagram, posting a lengthy message in which she accused Portman of trying to "shame" her for her choices.

"I was disappointed this morning when I read that I "confused" you by wearing a bikini in a published photo taken of me when I was still a virgin in 1999", Simpson wrote. I have always embraced being a role model to all women to let them know they can look however they want, wear whatever they want and have sex with whomever they want. "The power lies within us as individuals".

'I have made it my practice to not shame other women for their choices, ' she wrote.

"In this era of Time's Up and all the great work you have done for women, I encourage you to do the same", she concluded in the note.

Well, after that interview ran yesterday, Simpson clearly noticed, and she responded in a statement posted to Twitter expressing her disappointment. "She's talking about the industry and her thoughts to that when she was younger".

Simpson, who we'd surmise hasn't seen the Brady Corbet-directed film, tweeted to say she was "disappointed" by the comment, as her image at the time was not always one of her own making.

During her heyday, much of the fascination with Simpson's celebrity concerned itself with her seemingly contrasting religious upbringing and highly sexualized image, perhaps most famously in her single about losing her virginity, "The Sweetest Sin".

"I only meant to say I was confused - as a girl coming of age in the public eye around the same time by the media's mixed messages about how girls and women were supposed to behave". There was also no reference to her being a virgin on the cover. However, she then pushed for Portman to make a habit out of abstaining from shaming women for what they choose to do.

"What I said was I was confused by mixed messages when I was a young girl growing up, and there are a lot of messages for how women should be, and women should be allowed to do whatever they want", she continues.

Portman told the outlet she was "confused" as a teenager at the image of Simpson on the cover of a magazine saying "I'm a virgin" while clad in a bikini. 'I could have made my message without naming'.
