Let’s start with Jessica Simpson and how the filming of her new movie, Employee of the Month, helped her navigate through a difficult life adjustment.

“I was going through a pretty rough time while making Employee of the Month,” she said at the film’s Los Angeles premiere on Tuesday, “so all these guys just really lightened my day. They made it bright.”

Who would those guys be? Certainly not ex-husband, Nick Lachey.

The film costars Dane Cook and Dax Shepard. It was filmed in New Mexico. Jessica referred to the location as “relaxing and peaceful,” while making sure the cast and crew ate things that were yummy and tasty.

“I made cupcakes here and there. I love to bake so I would bring stuff to set all the time,” said the offspring of Crazy Joe Simpson.

Jessica was still nervous about what audiences would think, but the reception at the premiere was positive. She said she was “beaming” afterward. As for Cook? He has other reasons to smile.

Dane, who attended the premiere with girlfriend Racquel Houghton, was linked to Simpson during filming, but told reporters of the gossip, “We laugh about it.”

He’s also completed movies with the three hottest Jessicas out there. Besides Simpson, whom he says is a “breath of fresh air — I had no idea she was so funny,” there was:

  • Good Luck Chuck with Jessica Alba — “a brilliant physical comedian”
  • London with Jessica Biel — “amazing actress”

Look out, Jesse Metcalf, you might be next on the Dane docket!
