Jennifer Love Hewitt steps out in sweats and a t-shirt, tries hiding behind a little purse

I don’t think it’s an accident when Jennifer Love Hewitt gets papped. Like she’s not a big enough celebrity to have paparazzi sleeping in their cars outside her house, but I could be wrong. For instance here she is in a pair of loose turquoise sweats an “I need coffee” v-neck t-shirt and sneakers. She tried to hide behind one of those little purses she’s been carrying lately. What’s with those? I noticed she’s carried a small purse at two different events. As a mom who has to carry a huge purse around, I don’t get it. Lucky single girl.

I wouldn’t go out like this. Living in Berlin for so long conditioned me to dress to leave the house for anything, even going to the gym. (People don’t really walk around in sweats or gym clothes in Berlin.) This is just my own hangup and no judgment on people who are comfortable in their casual clothes. It’s nice to feel like you don’t have have to dress up in America. I think when you work from home though it gives you a boost to dress like you might have an actual job to go to.

Hewitt can’t say that, but she does have the advantage of being dressed by professionals at whatever gig she’s going to. That doesn’t seem to have been the case here, judging from her IMDB profile. Maybe she had a photoshoot or was just running out to get some coffee, letting her shirt do the talking for her.

    No one should ever go out looking like that. And that bag looks ridiculous. Honey, you don’t need coffee, you need a stylist!

  2. cici says:

    Her not-ready-for-photos face looks great, sans makeup. Looks like she has really nice skin.

  3. DogBoy says:

    This could be “rock bottom”.

  4. arock says:

    give her a break, she been spending the last 2 weeks in the bathroom practicing her sad face and waiting for lifetime to call about a casey anthony movie.

  5. mims says:

    Are you kidding me? Just because she is an “actress” shouldnt mean she has to spend 3 hours in the bathroom getting ready to go out and get a soda, coffee, whatever. She looks comfortable – there is nothing wrong with that, most people look like that when they arent working and not trying to impress anyone!!

  6. Stubbylove says:

    @arock – LOL!!

  7. Ell says:

    She’s should to be hiding her hideous clothes not her face. She’s naturally pretty, doesn’t need make-up.

  8. Maritza says:

    It’s obvious she didn’t want to be photographed without makeup. She has a pretty face so no problem there except for the clothes she is wearing,oh well, at least their clean.

  9. sassenach says:

    Why is she dressed like crap but wearing a $8,000 crocodile purse?

  10. Quest says:

    Getting her face photographed without makeup should be the least of her worries with those sweats she has on.

  11. Delta Juliet says:

    OK, so if she doesn’t want to be photographed without make-up, she shouldn’t go out without make-up. That’s pretty simple. (Not that I think she needs it…she’s quite pretty)

    ALso, I’m with you CB. I don’t generally dress like this, and I certainly don’t go OUT dressed like this. But it’s her perogative.

  12. mrsezc says:

    Is this still considered a size 2?????

  13. curleque says:

    She looks like a teenager who just rolled out of bed to begrudgingly run errands with her mom. I cannot understand grown-a** adults who go out in sweats, unless they are ill and going to a doctor. Is it really that much more effort to throw on a pair of jeans and some flats?

  14. Fabianne says:

    These pics are making me laugh so hard. Is this for real? This has got to be on purpose. I mean, she’s not only going out in sweats but fug ones too!! And now she wants to hide? BTW, I had to google Free City and it’s a shop, so they got want they wanted. Free advertising.

  15. 6 says:

    “Her not-ready-for-photos face looks great, sans makeup. Looks like she has really nice skin.”

    Cici: I totally agree. Some celebs look trashed without makeup but she does look nice without it.

    She does look a little disheveled but oh well there are worse things people can do… murder their child and throw them in a trunk (so disgusted by that women).

  16. Ahot says:

    Da braucht sie vielmehr als ein Kaffee! Ich mag sie, aber sie sollte nicht wie ein Penner aussehen, wenn sie ihr Ruf wiederherstellen möchte. Aber echt eh!

  17. Truthful says:

    that purse irks me w/the outfit–tears me apart.

    I wonder if some of the paps pick on certain celebs and stalk them so they can make a mockery out of them.

    poor girl, she could have done a little better, her face is always cute.

  18. Tiffany says:

    When I lived at home in Cali, I would do a school run in nicer swats and a tank…but I agree with CB. After living in cities like Amsterdam, London and Montreal, I now never leave the house like this. I always at least put on nice jeans, shoes and a cute shirt, at least.
    I still go sans make up, but this combo she is wearing with the shoes and the bag is just wrong.

  20. Jeannified says:

    Oh come on…get over yourself. Plenty of people go out looking like this, even in LA. Whatever…

  21. mk says:

    People are way too harsh on this girl. It’s ridiculous already.

  22. ZenB!tch says:

    This is wrong on so many levels. I live in LA so I’m very good at going out in sweats. I’m at work in leggings today. I’m in studio distribution in the ‘burbs not law downtown LOL.

    I’m in my “PJs” because I over-extended myself in Pilates BUT I have on a nice tunic and a flats not sneakers.

    Her outfit is wrong because, it doesn’t fit. She looks like a fat girl hiding her body – which in turn makes her look fat. Unless you are a Lardassian or at the gym, the rule is tight on top, loose on the bottom or vice versa.

    She is also wearing a double logo which is too much. It’s jarring. Either wear a logo (or pattern) on the top or on the pants not on both.

    Her shoes clash with the color of her sweats. The purse is way too dressy (and dowdy/old lady IMHO) to wear with that outfit. If she didn’t have time to change it out – she could have stuck it in one of those recycle bags.

    She wears THAT and is worried about not wearing make up? LOTS of women don’t wear make up in LA on a casual day.

    WAIT! If you actually click on the photos, she has liner and mascara on – maybe brown shadow too.

  23. TQB says:

    I really am confused as to why she thinks her face is the thing she should be hiding. Really. I LOVE sweats and put them on immediately upon getting to my house, but even I wouldn’t wear those. They. Are. Hideous. My dog would be embarrassed.

    If she was wearing leggings, same T and same sneaks and just smiling, we’d all be talking about how cute she looks w/o make up (which she does).

    I guess maybe when you’re that cute naturally you push it with your sweatpant choices. I guess I am compensating for looking like a pasty 30 something with bad hair by wearing nicer sweats? Who knows.

  24. gab says:

    WOW, I am a stay at home, work from home mom to three kids. I would NEVER go out in public like that – not even to walk my kids down to the school bus stop! Maybe I have slept in sweat pants and a tee shirt once in a while, but I don’t even wear nice (Lucy) work out gear except to work out! I think it makes you look lazy at best. C’mon, this girl wants to be thought of as an actress? Show some self respect, JLH.

    It’s not your own hangup. My friends and I made the same observation while living and traveling in East Asia. A clean pair of jeans and a t-shirt are casual without looking sloppy. My Brazilian friend was shocked to see American parents wearing PJs and slippers to walk their kids into school. At her daughter’s elementary school graduation ceremony, my friend was horrified to see a heavy mom stuffed into a tight low-cut shirt, Daisy Duke denim hot pants, and trotting around in black pumps. Back in the mid-90s, a news magazine cover story asked, “Are we becoming a nation of slobs?” The answer is a resounding “YES!”

  26. ThirdChris says:

    I think her face looks great and she shouldn’t have to feel she needs to glop on make-up to go out in public.

    The outfit though…yeesh. This coming from a lady who wears yoga pants daily. (Dark colors though only!!)

  27. Amanda G says:

    Oh Jennifer…If you don’t want your picture taken looking like that, then DON’T GO OUT LOOKING LIKE THAT!

    P.S. she looks great without make up!

  28. Rhiley says:

    The snark about the casey anthony movie cracked me up. Perfect. You know Jennifer Love and Hayden Penitarre (however she spells her ridiculous last name) are going to be battling it out at the Lifetime Studios.

  29. deva says:

    why does she even own these clothes?

  30. Shelley says:

    I think she looks fine! Tshirt, sweats, running errands – I’d think the sweats would have been intolerably warm, but there’s nothing bad about them. The hiding thing is ridiculous. Smile and wave and run your errands, for pete’s sake.

  31. dr.bombay says:

    You know, I admit to hitting the stores & coffee shoppe looking a hot mess every now and again. Who hasn’t? However, even on my *worse* day, I wear shades & subdued clothing so as not to call attention to myself, not this bright crap that would definitely call attention to me. I am suspecting that she wanted the attention with the crazy the shirt AND pants, which is just stupid on her part. She’d look better in garanimals!!!

  32. Catherine says:

    Take a little pride in how you look when you go out. This is as bad as wearing your pajamas to the stores. Hate that trend too.

  33. Janie says:

    She’s doing a walk of shame!!! lol!
    That’s a borrowed man’s outfit.
    too funny

    or else she murdered someone and had to grab something else to wear because her own clothes were so bloodied…

  34. Moops says:

    I don’t go out in sweats – ever. I ascribe to the Jerry Seinfeld sentiment:

    “You know the message you’re sending out to the world with these sweatpants? You’re telling the world, ‘I give up. I can’t compete in normal society. I’m miserable, so I might as well be comfortable.'”

    Throw on a pair of jeans.

  35. Franny says:

    the only people who think her outfit is okay are the people who walk around outside like that. Its really not hard to put on jeans, shoes and a tshirt. even a plane white tshirt would be acceptable and still look classy (just look at Jen Aniston…you may get bored of her simple wardrobe, but it always looks nice).

    And I would love to look like that without make up! To not have to worry about my white eye lashes every time I look in the mirror in the morning.

  36. Kosmos says:

    Her attempt at hiding behind that purse is futile! She should just act natural and smile, not appear as if she just got caught…if you don’t want to draw attention to yourself while wearing t-shirt and sweats, do NOT wear t-shirt with big ugly lettering nor brightly colored sweats. Better yet, play it safe and always be prepared to be papped if you’re an actress. Remember, you are no longer an anonymous person once you are seen on TV or on the big screen, hello?

  37. pixiegirl says:

    Did she lose her clothes and find some laying around the street to wear?

  38. Melancholy says:

    Her crotch is down around her knees. She’s walking like a cowboy. I think those are jammies.

    Hey, maybe it was that outfit or a NAKED walk of shame. Maybe she woke up somewhere random. Grabbed ’em off a clothesline. 😉

  39. Lena says:

    Adorable!!! The shirt says it all. Where do I get one?

  40. No Sensei says:

    Okay, we get it… the BAG!

  41. Laura says:

    This girl looks like she is intolerant to gluten.

  42. alecia moore says:

    why should you care and yes if u dont want your picture takin wearing that than dont wear it its called commen sence u are an actrss there is a thing so called poperatsi soory i spelled that wrong an plus they are being harsh she just wants to probly have normal time u ppl are normal im pretty sure u been outside wearing sweats and a t

  43. B86 says:

    Beautiful girl, Cool clothes. I would wear them. Sometimes its cool, and sure Make moore sence, than leather pants and jackets, on a Hot summerday. I had same problem so many times, when my bag didnt go with sports clothes. So what? That only shows, a girl wears not only one style. Who has time changing handbags everytime you go to gym, or just feal like wearing something comfy? Asquetic look is cool once a while.

  44. lrm says:

    i live in san diego , and the only people besides teens who i’ve seen wearing pj’s out as pants [ teens did it when it was a fad] are ghetto moms dropping their kids at school where my son went for awhile….seriously-there were a few moms who had on slippers, rollers, you name it….
    i was flabbergasted, and i’m a very casual person, so it’s not lik ei’m wearing pearls and heels every day, esp. in san diego….
    but seriously-they just reeked of going back to bed or the crack pipe while their kid was at school, waiting for the next welfare check.

    so that is what i always think of when is see an outfit like this.
    but she is missing the fuzzy tiger print slippers…..

  45. Shadowd says:

    What is wrong with you people? So she went out in sweats and a t-shirt, seriously how many of you when cooking realised you are out of whatever you need, and just hopped in a car to go get it, or simply going to pick up clothes at a dry cleaner, a 10 minute errand, seriously do you dress for that? You just throw on something comfortable, and do the errand. Yes the t-shirt looks big for her, then again it is probably very comfortable.

  46. Leah says:

    All I have to say is ha ha that purse is not that small, mine is way smaller. Anything larger for a single person just =’s high maintenance.

  47. ThisIsAmericaNotEuropeGetOverIt says:

    Many of you people on here are too critical. If she wants to go out in public in sweats that’s her business not yours. Also free city isn’t the cheap sweats you buy at walmart either and they are made stylish to be worn outside the house. Perhaps she could have picked a better shirt to wear that would match but there is nothing wrong with her wearing sweats. Also for the people who made comments about people from Berlin being shocked by seeing people out in sweats here, this isn’t Berlin, this is America where people are free to dress how they feel like it so get over it or go back to Berlin if you don’t like it.

  48. Madison34 says:

    I agree..Why, just because she is a celebrity, does she have to dress to please us? Her duty is to make movies and TV shows and we pay for them. It ends there. We don’t tell her “we own you now and decide what you wear”. And good for her for not being a damm robot – she wears what she wants, she actually HAS a brain. She is not a clone like all of us. Where I come from you can’t even get the mail without putting on make-up that is how vain they are. (And it’s my front porch)
