Jennifer Love Hewitt is no stranger to playing sexy roles, and her new role is no different. Starring in The Client List, a Lifetime series that premiered Sunday, Hewitt plays a single mother who finds work at a massage parlor that offers sexual favors to a special list of clients; something her character did not exactly sign up for.
Her character, Riley, often appears in revealing outfits and constantly struggles to find the balance between her morals and an opportunity that could resolve her financial woes for her family.
Even though Hewitt has played sexy roles in “Can’t Hardly Wait,” “The Heartbreakers,” and “Ghost Whisperer,” this is a “whole different ballgame,” she told UsWeekly.
“Obviously, sort of being so overtly sexy and provocative – that part of it is not something, by nature, I’ve put on display before or really put out there before,” she said in a recent teleconference. “And that part’s just been sort of fun and exciting and, you know, I feel like I’m at a good age for it. I’m 33 years old, and I think, if I was younger, it would feel more saucy and daring. (more…)
Remember not too long ago when Jennifer Love Hewitt was being stalked on the beach, while every microscopic bit of cellulite was being analyzed and scrutinized by the paparazzi? That whole ordeal was blown out of proportion, of course. We expect our Hollywood starlets to be like cartoon characters without an ounce of human frailty.
Anyway, Hewitt is single now. Being newly independent often leads to a little shape-up in ones appearance, sometimes for good, other times bad. After breaking up with “Ghost Whisperer” costar Jamie Kennedy in March, Hewitt gave herself a makeover, which included a little more attention to her fitness routine.
Recently names like Oprah, Kathy Ireland, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Love Hewitt and even Seth Rogen have made headlines for their struggles with weight, and in some cases, the “struggle” seems a little far-fetched. Why are we so obsessed with celebrity weight changes, even minor shifts? Why do we judge them so harshly for even a five pound weight gain or loss? Do we believe it is a job requirement of fame to maintain a personal peak condition? On one hand, we want to believe that it is so “easy” for celebrities to lose weight and stay in shape because they don’t have “real jobs” and can afford to hire professionals to help them out all day every day. On the other hand, do we feel better about ourselves when celebrities are not perfect?
So much has been written about the dangers of exposure to extreme images, accepting those as the norm, as well as of being focused on your own weight, excluding BMI and health as measures. Yet we continue to analyze paparazzi photos for even the hint of a change. A shift in fabric, poor posture, normal bloating, or ill-fitting clothing could all explain a less than flattering photo more than a body change. Focusing on someone else’s weight and making comparisons is just as damaging as criticizing yourself. (more…)
