Jennifer Love Hewitt wants you to wear a bikini

December 4th, 2007 // 247 Comments

Jennifer Love Hewitt isn’t too happy about all the attention she’s been receiving after some unflattering bikini pics of her in Hawaii surfaced. The pictures overshadowed her engagement to Ross McCall which prompted Jennifer to do some blogging:

This is the last time I will address this subject.
I’ve sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women’s bodies are constantly scrutinized. To set the record straight, I’m not upset for me, but for all of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image.
A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful.
What I should be doing is celebrating some of the best days of my life and my engagement to the man of my dreams, instead of having to deal with photographers taking invasive pictures from bad angles. I know what I look like, and so do my friends and family. And like all women out there should, I love my body.
To all girls with butts, boobs, hips and a waist, put on a bikini — put it on and stay strong.

Dear JLH,

Thank you for encouraging women of all sizes to wear bikinis. You have provided me with job security for the foreseeable future and I can sleep soundly tonight on my albino tiger skin sheets inside my solid gold house.

P.S. My robot made of diamonds is also thankful that he won’t have to be powered down and thrown in the dumpster. He’d thank you himself if he wasn’t busy cooking me pancakes and writing this post while I drink my weight in bourbon. Yeah, type that stuff good, robot. Or I’ll punch you like a roast beef sandwich. Hey, check this out. I think I peed in the dishwasher again. *laughs* I totally did. No one appreciates the wicked cool stuff I do. *cries* Hold me close, diamond robot, you understand me. What with your strong, shiny arms like my own. Wait, are you still typing?

    watch what happens next with this “size 2″ one – she will soon have a dramatic loss of weight because she now can’t live with herself because her disgusting pix are all over the world; and this just shows how she lies about “loving her curves” ‘casue she really hates the way she looks now. WATCH.

    96,

    no that makes you wayyyyy to skinny for your height. (Well, it’s true).

  3. Shallo Val is a bitch, I know......w/e

    OK, to set the record straight….

    Cellullite is the result of a sedentary lifestyle. When the body is in motion all the time, and not just from the house to the car, cellulite takes longer to attach itself you your skin.

    So saying skinny girls get cellulite is not a fair assessment. Lazy people get cellulite. Or if you are not lazy and have cellulite, I’m sure it took a while for you to get it, do I make a point or not?

    Please I make it my lifes work to at least have straight facts or close to it.

  4. she’s really cute..

    She’s not fat. She did the right thing by speaking up on behalf of girls because too many girls have a negatvie body image. Size zeros look like the Crypt Keeper and are not attractive. Size 2′s not far from looking like Crypty. Anorexic women are ugly. Real women have curves.

    BUT….

    I’m glad she loves her body, but she should love it just a bit more and put some exercise in her life and consult a nutrionist for a healthy eating regimen she can live with. Not to be stick thin, but because later on she’ll feel and be heathier. It’s clear that she might want to cut down a bit on some the foods she’s eating and burn a few more calories.

    There I’ve had my say. And I think I’ve been kind.

    @95: if she sews two size 2s together. I saw some abuelitas under five feet in Mexico that if they ever fell over and rolled, Beckham couldn’t stop them. Not on a hill. No chance.

  12. The Truth Hurts Sometimes

    Despite all the mooing from the cows about how obsession with thinness is causing women to starve themselves, if you look at American women at the mall or the market or wherever, there isn’t an epidemic of anorexia, there is an epidemic of OBESITY! All that guilt-tripping about causing anorexia is just a smokescreen.

    The fatties here are trying to make fat “the new normal” just as over-the-hill former hotties (Desperate Housewives) are trying to make 40 “the new 30″. Both are doomed to fail.

    Face the truth: in this country both men and women judge women based upon their looks, and both men and women judge men based upon their wealth and income (and height). Women like JLH who are highly-paid and famous in large part because of their looks are fair game and shouldn’t be so self-righteous when they are called out for not upholding high standards.

    And to you fat cows: instead of wasting time at your computer trying to lower the bar, trying raising your own standards by getting off of your fat butt, eating less, and working out more!

    55 so agree with you re 21. I love this site, love reading all the various comments but “massive cottage cheese thighs” – what the f? If you are a man, then you haven’t had a lot of experience in the sack. Pretty much all of us have some kind of cellulite and if you are a woman, you should be ashamed of yourself. You only have to look at those pathetic celebrity magazines (mostly sadly written by women) to see what a stupid world it is when people are obsessing over sizes. JLH is a real woman. We are meant to wobble in the right places.

    She threw in a few women-with-curves tag lines, so some girls are doing their Pavlovian responses (“Go girl!”)

    Kind of how pictures of celebrities with cellulite illicit the Pavlovian response of “ewww she is an ugly piece of shit” from bored assholes? What the hell is up with this site’s issue with women having self-esteem. Its as if you expect all girls who don’t fit your category of attractive to be holed up in some corner in the fetal position sobbing about unattractive they are. Just because you have nothing better to do with your time, your allowed to ridicule others? Whatever happened to human decency? Jennifer Love Hewitt is a human being, with GASP feelings. Obviously the fact that people are calling her cow is going to have some sort of effect on her. I’d be worried if it didn’t. It doesn’t make her “empty headed” or “narcissistic”, but human. Some of the comments for that bikini post were brutal. You can debate that anyway you’d like, but either way you’ll still come of as a douche bag. That whole “women-with-curves” bit isn’t just a tagline, seeing as how half the people here are disgusted by her non pre-pubescent hips.

  17. suck it up

    i like how fat slobs are “real “women, but athletic fit women who work hard somehow aren’t because they aren’t gluttons.
    get over yourselves fatties.
    this woman is full of herself, you should read quotes she has made about how cute she is.
    like someone said earlier, she is paid to look good.
    paid quite well.
    worse has been said about other celebs, she needs to suck it up.
    she wasn’t looking up to par for an average 20 something woman in LA, and she has a large amount of cellulite.

  18. suck it up

    112- heck yeah!

    It doesn’t have to be that way. If we were all a little less shallow the world would be a better place. And for the record, the so-called “obesity” epidemic and the “obsession with thinness” are two wholly separate issues. Also, standards of beauty and perfection are highly subjective.anonymous

  21. Shallo Val

    108 Huh? Enlighten me cuz I don’t know what you’re talking about. (WTF is a thinspriation site?)

    anonymous: “It doesn’t have to be that way. If we were all a little less shallow the world would be a better place.”

    Fine, when all hot women stop caring what a man does for a living, how much money he makes, how tall he is, and what kind of car he drives, we successful men won’t care about your cellulite. Deal?

    You call it shallow, I call it dealing with the world the way it IS, instead of as some fantasy utopia.

    I mentioned the obesity epidemic and the so-called but-not-very-evident-on-women-like-JLH’s-butt “obsession with thinness” together because fatties often accuse men who refuse to swallow the BBW “real woman” propoganda as being promoters of anorexia or latent homosexuals (“you must want a woman who looks like a young boy” blah blah blah).

    And standards of attractiveness are not subjective. Cross-cultural studies have shown that around the world men are attracted to YOUNG women with long hair and a healthy (not obese or anorexic) body habitus. The reason Victoria Secret and Sports Illustrated Swimsuit supermodels are recruited from around the world and are popular from LA to Tokyo to Moscow to Rio to Sydney to Chicago etc. is because men around the world find women with a certain look attractive. And it isn’t because the media brainwashed the whole planet, it’s because the media will recognize and supply what is appealing and popular.

    108 – ok SINDIVA, I read the site and please show me where I was …. ahem let me get it right…

    “nowhere near right. I make assumptions based off of thinspiration sites!!!!”

    What did I write that the site you posted didn’t? How was I nowhere near right? Please, once again, oh great buddha, enlighten me.

    # 123 define “healthy” (because, you know, not all VS models look the same)

  36. Shallo Val

    125 – 134 diet

    What did you say, I couldn’t hear it….couldja repeat it

  37. kyley

    #123 former VS model Tyra Banks is a freaking cow while Alessandra Ambrosia is more like an anorexic. it’s not quite clear what you think is a hot body

  38. s0fa

    she is not a size 2, probably a size 4. maybe she can squeeze her way into a size 2…but I mean it’s not like it matters. she still looks better and more natural than most of the other washed out celebrities.

  39. Britney Spears

    Did you all taste the new jalapeno crispy-style Cheeto? It’s purty good, but spy-sayyyyy!

  40. christ on a cracker

    s0fa, you’re eyes don’t work.
    look at the god damn bathing suit pictures you idiot!
    i could kill you.

    she is BIG like BIG not a 2, 4, 6, or 8, … yes maybe an 8 at chicos…. her lower body is massive… for REGULAR PEOPLE.

    im done
    i can’t take this anymore.
    this fat ass makes britney look good.

    kyley: “#123 former VS model Tyra Banks is a freaking cow while Alessandra Ambrosia is more like an anorexic. it’s not quite clear what you think is a hot body”.

    Former. Exactly. FOR-MER. In Tyra’s model days she was hot, then she figured she had it “made” and let herself go, like JLH. When embarassing swimsuit photos emerged (just like JLH) she got on her self-righteous high horse (just like JLH) and made the predictable “I’m a REAL woman and if you don’t like it you can kiss my big black a$$” defense.

    But probably when she realized her lard ass was jeopardizing her $$$$$, she whipped that fat ass into better shape, although she will never look as good as she did in her younger SI Swimsuit days. What happened to all that ‘I’m a proud REAL woman” BS? Whay didn’t she stay fat(ter) if it was so great? Just proved that what she said was BS. Actions speak louder than words.

    And Alessandra Ambrosia has a ferret face but her body is nice. If you think she is anorexic it is only in comparison to a typical American lard ass.

    3% of Japanese women are obese. 30% of American women are obese. If that makes you mad or feel sad, do what you normally do: eat something. ;-)

  44. hmm well

    143-
    i like alessandra’s ferret face better than jlh’s ferret face. atleast Alessandra has pretty lips and doesn’t have legs like star jones.

  45. The Voice of Reason

    #144,

    Other’s have said JLH has more of a rat face, so I agree with you, I prefer AA’s ferret face to JLH’s rat face. ;-)

    But I’ve seen non-famous women in real life who are prettier in my opinion than either AA or JLH.

  46. kyley

    # 143 Voice of reason: I’m Russian, and ir Russia we have different standrads of “fatness”. Tyra Banks even in her best days was huge. I don’t really think that Alessandra Ambrosia is anorexic, what I meant was compared to TB she is (and yet, they are both models). I live in America now, thank god, but my idea of a hot body is Russian, not American – in my country JLH would be considered fat. And so would Tyra. The fact that 30% of American women are obese does make me sad but oh well…
    P.S. how did you get the idea that I’m fat?… Nothing in my posts indicates it. I was just curious to know what you think a hot body is since your first comment seemed very reasonable, that’s all.

  47. Dani5

    WOWWWWWWWWW…you guys are ridiculous for calling her fat…She looks like a NORMAL chick…take it down a notch. Shes super cute. And all the people who are saying shes a tank ass, prob couldnt even get a girl that looks like that in the first place… give the girl a break!

  48. Dosvidanya

    Funny but if Russians are so thin, why do they get so FAAAAT when they age, even a little bit???

    I’m just saying….

  49. Dosvidanya

    146 – you have to know that when someone calls YOU fat here, they are trying to get you to respond. Don’t be do easy, ninochka!

  50. Dosvidanya

    I meant “so” easy
