Jessica Simpson was thrilled with her performance in the movie The Dukes of Hazzard, because she was finally able to establish herself as an actress by playing sexy DAISY DUKE. The star claims she worked hard portraying the tomboy, especially while filming the provocative video for THESE BOOTS ARE MADE FOR WALKIN'. She tells America's Elle magazine, "That wasn't me. That was Daisy Duke. I was selling a movie. And I have to say I did a pretty damned good job of it. "That video put me on the map as an actress because I don't walk around in a bikini and dance like that. That was so out of character for me."
