Jessica Simpson, 43, shares 'unrecognizable' photo taken six years ago before ... trends now
Jessica Simpson was in a contemplative mood on Thursday, as she re-posted an 'unrecognizable' photo of herself from six years ago to her Instagram Stories.
The Take My Breath Away hitmaker, 43, shared the snap — which she previously posted on her profile in 2021 — writing '6 years ago.'
The Dukes Of Hazzard actress revealed in her memoir Open Book that she went sober in 2017, and took to Instagram to share a photograph of herself while in the midst of her addiction.
The unflattering snap sees the blonde beauty look nothing like her usual self, while wearing a pink track suit as she sits in a dark room.
In the original caption Simpson wrote: 'This person in the early morning of Nov 1, 2017 is an unrecognizable version of myself.'

'Unrecognizable': In the original caption she explained the photo was taken before she got sober: 'This person in the early morning of Nov 1, 2017 is an unrecognizable version of myself'
She went on: 'I had so much self discovery to unlock and explore. I knew in this very moment I would allow myself to take back my light, show victory over my internal battle of self respect, and brave this world with piercing clarity.'
'Personally, to do this I needed to stop drinking alcohol because it kept my mind and heart circling in the same direction and quite honestly I was exhausted. I wanted to feel the pain so I could carry it like a badge of honor.'
Simpson continued: 'I wanted to live as a leader does and break cycles to advance forward- never looking back with regret and remorse over any choice I have made and would make for the rest of my time here within this beautiful world.'
'I can’t believe it has been 4yrs! It feels like maybe 2. I think that is a good thing. Ha. There is so much stigma around the word alcoholism or the label of an alcoholic. The real work that needed to be done in my life was to actually accept failure, pain, brokenness, and self sabotage.'
'The drinking wasn't the issue. I was. I didn’t love myself. I didn’t respect my own power. Today I do.'
'I have made nice with the fears and I have accepted the parts of my life that are just sad. I own my personal power with soulful courage. I am wildly honest
