Jennifer Love Hewitt is the cover girl for October’s Shape Magazine. While I don’t doubt that the body shown on the cover is Jennifer’s, I really think they shaved off quite a bit on her thighs and hips. I’m not judging (seriously, I’m not), but if you want to see what Jennifer’s un-photoshopped body looks like in a bikini, try these very recent pictures of her being a dumbass on a tennis court. That’s what she really looks like – and she’s not bad, or overweight or anything, but she’s not this size-2, plucked, sucked and firm Shape cover girl.
In the interview for Shape, Jennifer goes on and on about body image, and she gives her boyfriend Jamie Kennedy a lot of credit for making her eat healthier. Of course. Because Jennifer recently told the world that the first time Jamie saw her naked, he called her “pear ass”. Ah… true love. Jennifer’s really selling it, too. The most gagtastic line of the whole interview is “I fall asleep feeling beautiful.” My response: “I fall asleep with a bourbon buzz, smiling as I try to imagine what Clive Owen looks like naked.”
Nearly two years after was she was criticized for showing off some cellulite while at the beach in Hawaii, Jennifer Love Hewitt is savoring the best revenge of all – baring a new, toned body ready for a bikini.
But she admits that she still has insecurities about her figure.
“I’m a girl, after all!” the actress, 30, tells the October issue of Shape, out this week. “For the most part, yeah, I’m happy with my body, but there are days when I’m like, ‘Ugh! Really? Why is it so hard to fit into my jeans?’ That’s when I say to myself, ‘I look this way because I’m supposed to. If we all looked the same, we’d be boring.’ ”
Hewitt also thanks boyfriend Jamie Kennedy, whom she’s been dating for seven months, for her slimmer and healthier lifestyle
“He’s inspired me to improve my diet,” she says. “He has a salad with every meal, plus lots of fruit, fish, and vegetables.”
And she’s also been a good influence on him.
“Last summer we were in Monaco. Every morning we ran for 40 minutes through the streets of Monte Carlo,” she says. “It was an amazing way to see the city. Now when we travel, we try to explore the places by running.”
But there’s no beating the power of positive thinking.
“I fall asleep feeling beautiful,” she says. “Then, in the morning, before I leave the house, I say five things I love about myself, like ‘You have really pretty eyes.’ That way I can go out into the world with that little bit of extra confidence. It’s a feel-good protein shake in my back pocket in case someone messes with me that day.”
I know she’s harmless. She’s like a Saltine that’s been left out for a day. Not horrible, but not great. But her act cracks me up. Some of her advice is okay though – she recommends grocery shopping every few days, just so the fridge isn‘t always full: “Instead of piling up food in my fridge that says, ‘Come eat me!’ I keep enough for only a couple of days. And I rarely have treats around that might tempt me late at night, which is when I usually crave something really fattening. What am I going to do? Drive out at 11 at night just to satisfy a craving? No, that’s crazy.” Yeah, that’s crazy until PMS hits you like a freight train and you’re ready to stab somebody for a mini Snickers bar. As far as the grocery shopping thing, I’ll admit, I prefer shopping every three days or so, but it’s time consuming. But I guess Jennifer doesn’t have anything better to do.

She seems like such a nice girl . . .what is she doing with a jerky guy like Jaime?
I truly feel for her. She may say all these positive things, but she’s with a guy who has made remarks that are somewhat disparaging. I have days where I feel ugh, (usually after I’ve shanked someone for a PMS Snickers), and my husband makes sure to tell me how beautiful I am and what he loves about me-not encouraging an unhealthy body image that’s reinforced by the media’s obsession with JLH’s cellulite and size “2” figure.
She irritates me on principal. If you embrace who you are, truly, then show us the tags in your jeans. If it says “2”, I’ll give up my PMS chocolate for 6 months.
First, he seems like a jerk. Second, if they have been dating for seven months, how could they have vacationed together in Monaco last summer?
What bugs me most is that the celebs on the cover of men`s fitness mags generally appear fully clothed, thereby eradicating this apparent “need” to photoshop someone within an inch of his life. On the other hand, it’s very rare to see a female celeb in anything other than a bikini (or skimpy workout clothes) on the cover of women’s fitness mags (Kelly Clarkson comes to mind as one exception). Why??? If the magazine doesn’t want to show what the woman’s body REALLY looks like (as is the case here, with JLH showing off a decidedly smaller waist and thighs than in real life), what’s the point? Just put her in a pretty sundress and THEN tell me how happy she is with her body. I’d find that much more believable.
I have never cared for her, but had more respect for her after the whole cellulite thing when she said so what, this is normal, time to stop being so critical. But then she turned around a few weeks later on some magazine cover showing off how she lost a bunch of weight (she didn’t need to lose). What a hypocrit.
He seems like a jerk and isn’t exactly perfectly gorgeous himself, so he should shut it. She seems to go from one guy to the next, so I’d imagine next year it’ll be someone else walking the red carpet with her anyway. Either way, this article makes her sound kind of pathetic and insecure.
I feel bad for her! She became famous when she was a teenager and obviously hadn’t 100% fully developed. So when she went under the radar and filled up and developed, it was quite a change to see her look a little different.
LOL @Kaiser! Good commentary!
I too don’t care for the way her S.O. talks to her. It’s pretty clear from all the self talk she needs to do on the way out the door in the a.m., that she is a pretty insecure person. Fodder for someone like him. It’s unfortunate.
give me a break with that shape picture… everyone looks so toned and tight on these mags… how fucking annoying.
and why is she dating this idiot? Some guys are able to hide their douchiness beneath a smooth appearance (ie: Clooney) but this guy wears it all over his face… and couple that with his voice, I dunno, this girl must need a lot of lube… totally unattractive…
a lunge or a squat wouldn’t kill her. with a nice toned tush she wouldn’t have to self affirm before leaving the house in the morning.
Or she could stop trying to be the poster girl for in shape. She is not obese. The constant ‘I’m so small’ is enough. I almost prefer ‘you know what my boobs did last summer’
She seems like a sweet girl. I have never heard anything about Love that didn’t involve both who she is dating and her body image. Ever
I’m so bored; I need a life —
Jamie should feel lucky that a girl will let his fugly ass get that close to her. And JLH no less. Even the tennis pictures of her? I think she looks great. It’s so unfortunate that she stays with someone who talks shit about her physique — no one deserves that. I would’ve kicked him to the curb long ago. No, wait: I wouldn’t have had him in the first place. Methinks JLH is a little needy.
Kaiser, you make me laugh.
“Yeah, that’s crazy until PMS hits you like a freight train and you’re ready to stab somebody for a mini Snickers bar.”
Jesus! She is not pear shaped! Who are you kidding? UGH! No wonder so many women in America have issues with their body image and they get everything tucked & implanted so they can look like a plastic Barbie doll.
Men are pigs, they shouldn’t call their girl pear shaped. I bet lots of girls would like to have her body. And i bet lots of guys much better than Jamie wouldn’t call her pear shaped. Ah well, I don’t know the guy, but he’s a douche..
What she sees in that piece of fug is beyond me.
“I fall asleep with a bourbon buzz, smiling as I try to imagine what Clive Owen looks like naked.” lol.
The words “pear ass” should never be uttered by any many who just saw someone naked for the first time. I get that long-term couples sometimes lovingly take jabs at each other…but i’m fairly certain i’d be taking the bod into hiding if anyone threw that at me first time out the gate.
re: grocery shopping and PMS. My fridge and pantry can be 3/4 of ingredients…condiments and the like and I still need to go grocery shopping. Also, I live in a small area that doesn’t have fantastic varied groceries within reach…so every three days probably wouldn’t cut it for me, I have to make one big trip.
That said, when PMS hits you hard enough, you don’t have to have junk food around, or am I the only one who’s going to admit to eating a square of baker’s chocolate.
I meant “uttered by any man”.
@Lem $%#$ off.
no amount of lunging or squatting will get rid of cellulite. you can be as skinny as the anorexic giraffes on Top Model and still have the orange peel ass. There have been stressfull times (i.e. I wasn’t eating much) in my life that spurred concerned maternal types poked my ribs and say “you’re too skinny! eat something!” and I still had celullite.
You are a woman = 95% chance of having cellulite. To believe otherwise is to be deluded by photo-shop into an eternal quest for physical self – improvement and consumption of crap-tastic beauty produces.
@ Lem, sorry, I’m cranky. PMSing and ready to shank for a baker’s chocolate square smeared with peanut butter even. @orion70 lol! totally.
Definite issues here. Most of us have not been pinups and Maxim Hottest-Listers (at least I haven’t) and we can leave the house without saying 5 nice things about our appearance. That is appalling! Get a hobby! That said, enough with the size obsession. I wouldn’t even want to be a size two. When I go below a six my husband says I look like a crackhead. And he’s right. My face gets gaunt, I get flat and I have no *ss and he is not having that! Size two does not mean you look great, or that you are superior. JLH-listen up, girl- you want to be happy? Drop that jerk-off and find a man who would rather you eat dessert WITH him and be a size eight than an a**hole who would rather you skip dessert and be a size two. And that right there is the key to a happy relationship. Bc its not just about size or weight or looks- its about finding someone who cares about YOUR happiness more than your physical attributes.
Hi, recently found this blog but I have to say that it seems nice. I fully agree with your post. Have a good day, keep up the nice work and I will definitely follow it.I just got in to the BF BC2 Beta for free, check out this youtube video for instructions on how you can do it http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OeEGe5fIAXo
what annoys me everyones obbession with how she looks. she’s not fat, and never has been.(even in the bikini picture)
and i love how jamie kennedy has the cheek to call her ‘pear arsed’ when he has alot more inperfections than her.
i can understand why she’s hypocritical in this artical, she said to be happy with you shape, even so, she lost weight. Think about it,imagine if you had big people with big cameras outside your house, following you and making remarks about your weight? she would obviously go that extra mile to lose weight to get them off her back.even we would do the same. I’m suprised she hasn’t had a breakdown.
not to forget she’s been in the public eye since she was 15.
anyhow, i need to get a life. adios.
