Getting a relaxing neck massage, the “Fantastic Four” starlet received a manicure and pedicure while she laughed
And though she seemed to be in high spirits, it surely wasn’t a result of the paparazzi presence - as Jessica once again spoke of her disdain for the shutterbugs.
Explaining that her young daughter Honor has made her ill sentiments grow even more, Jess tells, “Kids pick up on your energy, so the more upset you get about it, the more your kids are affected by it. But I understand how Sean Penn or Alec Baldwin knocks out somebody who’s putting a camera in their kids’ faces. I get that.”
Telling that her hubby Cash Warren feels the same, the brunette beauty adds, “I think it’s mutual, just because it’s so invasive. It’s not like they’re standing 100 feet away. They’re in your face, not letting you walk, standing in the way when you’re driving. It becomes a situation and it doesn’t need to be.”

Must be nice to make a living by rubbing this for extended periods of time. By kneading a body so superb that it's actually outperforming the Dow.
Meh; a person could probably get cramps doing that sort of work.
“Gisele Bundchen heads out for a massage at Spa Belles in New York City on Wednesday. Girlfriend of football player, Tom Brady, Fox Sports looks at who’s the NFL’s first lady? Gisele or Jessica Simpson (girlfriend of football player Tony Romo)? Jess gets the edge in Roots (Born in Texas), and Talent (Singer). Gisele gets the edge in Wealth ($30M per year), Power (Corporate) and Culpability for playoff defeat. Gisele was the winner!”
