Jessica Simpson fears her new movie The Dukes of Hazzard will flop because people see her as a singer and not a movie star.

The pop sensation is one of a growing number of young stars following in the footsteps of icons like Madonna and Jennifer Lopez who want to conquer all aspects of the entertainment industry.

Simpson plays sexy heroine DAISY DUKE in the big screen adaptation of the cult series and desperately hopes there will be no critical backlash concerning her acting skills.

She says, "I don't want people walking out of a movie thinking I was trying to act or be some movie star. I want them to think, 'That might make me like Jessica a little bit more.'"
