Jessica Simpson thinks speaking to her best friend is "the best therapy".

The 30-year-old beauty - who is currently dating former NFL player Eric Johnson - is happy to answer anything she is asked by her close pals as she believes it is the only way to become a better person.

She explained: "I really believe that somebody should just sit in front of their best friend in the world and have their friend ask any and every question - offensive or not. And whatever it is, answer it. That's your therapy. Really tackling those issues inside and out."

However, the singer-and-actress admits she is not immune to criticism - though she tries to take it in her stride after previously getting upset.

She told People.com: "Am I bothered by criticism? Of course, I'm a woman! But at this point, nothing else can be said about me that could be worse than I have already read.

"I'm very happy. Right now in my life, I'm the most confident I've ever been. I can make that statement."
