Noted Toothbrush-Hater Jessica Simpson Supports Operation Smile (PHOTOS)

You have to give Jessica Simpson credit for good intentions, anyway, if not a sense of irony.

The Dukes of Hazzard actress threw her support behind a good cause on Thursday, attending a gala for Operation Smile, which provides surgery for underprivileged children with cleft lips and cleft palates, at Cipriani Wall Street in New York.

A noble effort, to be sure. Still, given the fact that Simpson recently sent shock waves through the dental community by admitting on national TV that she avoids brushing her teeth at all costs, her choice of charity is a little puzzling.
