Jessica Simpson was happy to answer any questions posed to her by reporters at Operation Smile's annual gala Thursday at Cipriani Wall Street -- except when the topic turned to Jeremy Renner.
The new Us Weekly exclusively reports the two were spotted entering Washington D.C.'s St. Regis Hotel at 2:45 a.m. 30 seconds apart May 2.
When asked about Renner, 39, the singer, 29, remained tight-lipped as a publicist quickly led her away. Before that, Simpson -- who famously divorced husband Nick Lachey in 2005 and was dumped by Tony Romo last year on her 29th birthday -- was reflective as she looked back on her life.
"I know that I'm pushing 30 and it's happening," she told UsMagazine.com. "It's happening, and I feel it. I think that 30 is going to be a good year for me. I think that I experienced a lot in my 20s - a lot more than a lot of people in their 20s would experience. I feel old in a lot of ways, and I feel naïve in ways that I can't wait to see what happens next."'
Will she find love in your 30s?
"Oh, I can find love anywhere!" she told Us.
Added the singer, "It’s important for people to know that I’m a normal girl. I’m just like everyone else. I have a heart. I have feelings. I have emotions. I’m just like everybody else. I might happen to take pictures or walk a red carpet, but that doesn’t mean that I’m no different than you."
