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?

    #148 I never said ALL Russains are thin, we definetely have a lot of fat people, even BEFORE they age. sad but true

    kyley, just a bad guess on my part, sorry if I offended.

    Yes, I have seen many hot, thin Russian chicks. But like Dosvidanya, I too wonder why they turn into 5′ tall x 5′ wide babushkas when they get older.

    You are right about European, Asian, and Latin American women having more demanding standards for fitness. http://qwildw.free.fr/junk-mail/euro_vs_america.jpg

    They probably snicker and roll their eyes when American women try to make fat into “normal”, like #147 above.

  4. kyley

    voice of reason, you didn’t offend me :) as for the picture – this is exactly what I’m saying – even the girl that represents europe is not thin. While she looks healthy, she is by no means thin. Although I think JLH would kill to look like her

  5. Don Leherman

    What the hell is she talking about? Who said a size 2 is fat? If she was a size 2, no one would have said anything. She’s closer to a size 12… which we all agree is completely unaccaptable.

  6. Ted from LA

    If she is a size 2 I have an 18 inch dick. I am not one to judge whether someone is fat or not, but if she sits on your face and you can no longer hear the telephone ring, that might be an indication.

  7. I Love You Ted

  8. DCDARLING

    There is no way in HELL that she is a size 2, I mean look at the size of her ass, its more like a 16–she has money, go to a gym sweetheart, get lipo, do SOMETHING!!!! Give me a break, size two my size 8 ASS!!!!!

  9. redsonja1313

    We “normal girls” don’t get paid millions to look good….. Hooray for her for champion health eating habits and excersice for women….. Oh wait she didn’t she said accept the fact your ass is fat and has too much cellulite. How about put down the cookie and go for a jog. Then you won’t have to defend “bad camera angles” Hmmmm yet to see that bad camera angle on Demi moore or Heather Locklear anf they are twice her age.

  10. kitty_kat

    Size two my ass. Does this remind anyone else of when everyone was making fun of Tyra and she used that same tired appeal? Whatever. I mean, really, just like #160 said: normal women don’t get paid millions of dollars to look good. Its not as if she made it because of any acting talents, people.

  11. redsonja1313

    OH……………… SHE IS NOT NORMAL !!!!!!!!!! SHE GETS PAID MILLIONS TO LOOK GOOD, because she can’t act. I excpect celebs who are taking my hard earned cashed to fulfill an unrealistic ideal of what men or women can look like. If you are going to go the take the “please take me seriously “natural look” you better have the acting chops to back it up !!! But if all your famous for is HUGE TITS IN A WET TANK TOP in the I know what you did moives and CBS grooming you to be the next DR Quinn. Get your FAT NO WAY IN HELL IT IS A SIZE TWO ASS to the gym and give all of us a return on the investment !!

  12. OMG. My angel, I saw your hot video at http://www.interracialconnect.com which is a niche interracial dating site. You are very sexy with bikini in that video. most of us wanna get u. lol

    Typical fat girl response. Get on a treadmill, Hewitt!

  15. kitty_kat

    Oh- and by the same appeal, I mean the “Why can’t the media just accept that women come in different shapes and sizes?” appeal, even though they made their millions by being skinny… And even though they’re only a “normal woman” now because they’re too lazy and self-indulgent to put down the family pack of twinkies and go to the gym.

  16. Sugarplum

    I happen to be a size 2- I’m petite….and I think JLH is absolutely beautiful. She looks HEALTHY and HAPPY (notice she actually smiles at the photogs) Not my favorite actress but seriously why are you people wasting your time on this? This chick is standing up for all women by putting her views out there. We are all made differently for reason~men like different figures (as do women), so why should women be expected to fight nature by trying to conform to the unnattainable standards of Hollywood beauty?
    All you misogynist pigs writing the offensive bs comments need to wake up- not a single one of you is ever going to score an intelligent, sexy woman with those attitudes. Bet you’re all slobs anyway, and are just jealous that these people have more fame and money than you do.

  17. The Voice of Reason

    Sugarplum: “We are all made differently for reason~men like different figures (as do women), so why should women be expected to fight nature by trying to conform to the unnattainable standards of Hollywood beauty?”

    1. No one is complaining that women have too many different body types. Instead we are complaining that too many American women have the SAME body type: FAT.

    2. Hollywood standards are NOT unattainable, I see hot chicks every day. Hotter than JLH. Or at least with less junk in the trunk.

    And shouldn’t, of all people, a PROFESSIONAL ACTRESS (JLH) who is part of Hollywood be expected to live up to “standards of Hollywood beauty”? Shouldn’t an NFL or NBA player who is being paid millions of dollars be expected to live up to professional standards of play? If they don’t, they’re gone. One of the jobs of a starlet like JLH is to look hot.

    And here’s the new definition of a misogynist: any man who is winning a debate with a woman. ;-)

  18. Why Can't People See What JLH Is Actually Doing?

    #167
    “This chick is standing up for all women by putting her views out there.”

    If that were true, sweetie, she would not have made up that crap about being a size 2 and “bad angles”. She only stood up for her insecure, hypocritical, idiotic self.

  19. steve

    She probably really thinks that she is a size 2. The more expensive the clothes, the more extreme the vanity sizing is. It never occured to stupid JLH that if she were a size 2, someone like Selma Blair would be size negative 8.

  20. catalina

    She is 5´2, (1.57 ctm.) you can check it at :
    http://www.celebheights.com/s/Jennifer-Love-Hewitt-1203.html
    where there’s even a picture of her proving her height; she’s a small girl.
    That said, she can’t be a size 2, i agree, but she can’t be a size 12, not even a 10 neither, she is chubby, a tad overweight, but with that height, she wouldn’t reach a size 10 without looking even bigger than she does… I think she might be a 6. (i’m 5’6.5 and look chubby and wear a size 10)
    Oh and about those “angles” what the heck? having thick thighs and lots of cellulite what did she expect to look like in a bikini shot?
    It’s ok to be upset about paparazzi taking pics of her when she on vacation but she should have stuck to writing about that fact and not getting into a size debate which she wouldn’t win as we can all see the pics, it was a stupid choice.

  21. Sugarplum

    168- What’s really sad is that you truly don’t realize how stupid you sound….
    So an actor/actress can’t be taken seriously unless he/she is flawless looking? What a douchebag…GET A LIFE!!!!!!! I’m guessing you still live with your mommy too right? no way would any other woman put up with your sorry bs!
    and why is everyone saying she claimed to be a size 2? where the hell did that come from anyway? read her quotes again you freaks!

  22. catalina

    And i agree with #117, she’s very well paid. She is in hollywood where almost everyone is paid based on looks, she can’t be pulling that “love your body image” crappy argument, she should suck it up and hit the gym, specially having only about 8 pounds to lose.. what will happen if she gets pregnant and huge? will she start a campaign “love your hollywood fatty girls”?

  23. shanipie

    This is frikkin rediculous.
    I mean FAT women like this who then try to say “all woman have curves, it doesn’t mean they’re fat” Are royaling screwing over women like me.
    I’m curvey, I’m a size 4. I have big boobs, a little waist, good sized hips and thin arms and legs and face…I have hardly any actual fat on me, its the way my skelaton is shaped.
    Don’t mean to brag but it looks awesome.
    I’m not hear to talk about my rockin ass bod lol, i’m hear to say that CURVES do not eqaul FAT if you are fat your not “curvy”, Your FUCKING FAT. stop trying to say that all women are supposed to look like that, they aren’t! Most women are supposed to be a size 2-8 and look fine…but I can see she has a gut and completely untoned everything else (plus she needs a breast lift) She’s pulling that classic fat girl shit. Just work out and eat a fuckin salad bitch JEEZ!

    Oh and its funny that she’s stood idly by why watching women being judged BLAH BLAH BLAH…yeah but she only fees the need to talk about it when someone FINALLY says something about her.

    Okay Tyra Banks.

  24. fugue state

    Oh god, I love this. And I don’t care if you reply or not, or what you say. Narcissism at its finest. But really I do… hm. Who knows.
    Anyway,
    I am the girlfriend of an internationally recognized (high top 100 list status) DJ and I can’t tell you how many times the girls who rub their fake tits all over my boyfriend’s chest for pictures and drugs have looked in need of sandwiches so badly I wish I was Oscar Mayer himself. I mean, seriously, Miss Anorexic Argentina, are you pregnant, or did you just eat breakfast this morning? Do your breast implants function like camel’s humps? It sucks watching from my point of view, and I certainly get jealous and rethink that second Unagi roll now and then, but then again these bitches make their money from being the world’s version of perfect and so I’m just glad I can eat a fish and chips when I like and that my man loves me the way that I am. Not a gold digging whore, and besides his mother the only woman who will still love him when he retires and isn’t making huge money anymore.
    That said, despite my tenuous body confidence I wouldn’t be caught dead on the wrong end of a camera in my bikini. I’m 5’5” and 115 pounds. Size 5 if I’m buying at Abercrombie, size 0 if I’m buying Sevens or Citizens. I have enormous hips, but lack an ass and tits. That’s that. Debates about sizing are retarded. Used to make myself puke over it until I realized smaller profit margins mean smaller sizes and beyond that a man would rather have a sane woman than a freakishly obsessive one and definitely not one that runs the shower to vomit after every meal. That’s the explanation. I’m by no means ugly at all, my ass isn’t fat like hers, but she’s fucking ridiculous for waving at the camera and then complaining about her ass. She’s lucky she’s getting the attention right now in a non-Jodie Sweetin/Jessica Sierra type way, and whether or not she decides to go Tyra on us we’re all going to forget about her again within a month.
    Next?

    Actually, I made quite intelligent arguments. You, dear, are the one who resorts to insults and name calling, because you have nothing intelligent to say.

    And please don’t put words in my mouth. I said nothing about an actress being “taken seriously”. YOU were the one who brought up women living up to “standards of Hollywood beauty”. Like I said, it isn’t unreasonable for a young starlet who is well-paid in large part because of her physical assets (two in particular) to be expected to live up to those “standards”. We’re not talking about Meryl Streep or Dame Judi Dench here. *rolls eyes*

  26. The Voice of Reason

    He put that ring on her finger and she is already packing on the pounds. Not a good sign.

    Remember guys, don’t let the women you love eat the most fattening food known to man……….wedding cake!

    Women who eat wedding cake not only continue to gain weight for years afterwards, after eating it they also often lose all interest in sex . ;-)

  27. RichPort

    Fat bitches, the whole lot of ya…

  28. You mean: WEARING A BIKINI WITH THAT ASS!!

  29. kyley

    # 177 voice of reason: not true. I actually lost weight after I got married. I felt a lot of pressure to stay thin because I was paranoid that my husband could lose interest in me since I was his and he no longer had to pursue me.
    May be JLH’s fiancee (whatever his name is) likes that kind of body. May be she got so nasty for him lol

    Size two, my big old butt!

    No way that huge ass is a 2. More like a 12-14. I know, cuz I’m a 12

  32. put the ugly people in the back

    JLH PULLS A TYRA.

    I love how JLH claims to be a size 2 and then knocks size 0 ummm if you ever had been a size 2 you would know that a size zero is pretty friggin close. It’s like a 32 vs 34 waist for men. Who does she think she’s fooling? I wear both size 0 and size 2 depending on the clothing line (I have since highschool and I have boobs and a butt so stop with all the size 0 girls are sticks, it depends on the girl).

    And now she cares about all the average (fat ) girls out there. Just like Tyra. Neither of them gave a shit when they were hot and made all those “average” girls they love insecure as fuck. I’m sure JLH is responsible for a lot of the breast implants we see today. Like any hot girl she new damn well how insecure she made other girls and loved it, girls are insanely catty and competitve and they want to make other girls jealous and insecure. She knew damn well that girls everywhere had boyfriends that were spanking to her maxim pics (my friends boyfriends sure did) and she loved it, she constantly bragged about her boobs saying they were like accessories and now that she’s chub like all the girls who were jealous of her now she’s the average girls best friend. Arrogant hypocritical dellusional celebrity skank. You can’t have it both ways, getting aribrushed into a disney cartoon, having a personal trainer, make up artist, hair extensions, fake lashes, expensive cosmetic spa treatments, specially prepared meals, good lighting at all times, botox and all that fake bullshit and then when you get caught looking like shit write some self rigtheous blog lying about your dress size and suddenly start standing up for “all of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image”. Does she think that mentioning size 2 will make people forget that ass, oh she looked like a whale but she says she’s a size 2 so she must be tiny, wow bad angles can do crazy things to hot toned women. I guess Katherine Heigl must really be a size 4 like she claims and J-Lo must really weigh 120 pounds as she has often stated.

    WHAT A BUNCH OF FUCKING BULLSHIT. Don’t expect anyone to have sympathy when you are a giant hypocrite. Tyra suddenly gave a fuck when she got fat but all those years she was a nd looked like a supermodel knowing full well girls were shoving their fingers down their throats to look like her she certainly didn’t care. Celbrities have got to be the most selfish people on earth, they only care when it happens to them ( I’m the spokes person for this disease I have, I am here to defend all girls struggling with their boodies .. now that I’m fat too)

    All you are doing is confirming that you are not a native-born American woman. We believe you dear. Don’t ever change. ;-)

    The sad truth is that there is no need for most American women to keep their wedding dresses, as so many do, because after a few years of marriage they will never be able to fit into them again.

    I don’t know why American women *buy* their wedding dresses and American men *rent* their tuxedo. It should be the other way around. Not only will the woman never have another opportunity to wear her wedding dress again, she probably couldn’t fit into it if she did. Meanwhile, there are formal events where a man can wear a tuxedo (that will probably still fit with a few alterations).

  34. Definitely Put JLH in the Back

    #183

    Exactly.

    And what is even sadder is that there are actually women who defended these selfish hypocrites.

  35. Ted from LA

    Settle down people. Body type is really not important. It’s intellect, attitude and spirit that carry the day. Who cares what size you are? Exercise regularly, eat well, and limit alcohol intake. Those are the keys to happiness. Be willing to share and communicate with your lover. And most importantly, a great pair of tits never hurts.

  36. jacknasty

    good for her! long live J. Lo Huge Tits!

  37. Why You Should Take Care of Yourself

    #184

    I am a woman and I always tell my female friends to try to keep looking good after they get married. Why?

    1) It is not biologically instinctive for men to be monogamous. So once he’s married to you, he won’t be able to help feeling “trapped” once in a while. And what is even worse than feeling trapped with someone who looks worse than she was before for things that she could otherwise control? That is almost like giving him an excuse to admire other women.

    2) Let’s say he still leaves you for another woman even after you do your best to take care of yourself. Well, that’s OK, because you still look good enough to easily go with Plan B: find his substitute because you’re still marketable.

    So taking care of yourself even after you get married is not just good for your physical health, it is also good for other aspects of your life. Basically, you’re doing it mostly for your own benefits. Who gives a damn about the man ;) ?

  38. kyley

    # 184 voice of reason: it’s unfair that it only applies to women (at least so you sound). My ex gained quite a few pounds after we got married… I’m sure it happens a lot with men too

    #188, you are a very wise and clever woman indeed. More American women should follow your lead. ;-)

    “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…”

    Gotta disagree with you there. Ambrosio hardly has a figure at all. She’s all skin and bone and has weird knees. She does look anorexic IMO.
    Heidi Klum – now THAT’S a figure. Same with Adriana Lima.

  41. toya

    O, i saw those pics. really not very good. and recently her profile was seen on sugarmommymeet.com. You know it’s a site for rich women looking for handsome boys. i don’t know it is ture or not.

    The new definition of anorexic: any woman thinner than the woman using the term anorexic.

    Some people throw the term anorexic around pretty carelessly. In no way does Alessandria Ambrosio look like these REAL anorexia nervosa sufferers (copy and paste links into your browser, if you dare)

    Just more smokescreen by women trying to make fat “the new normal” by labelling fit and more attractive supermodels “anorexic”. Puhleez.

    Instead of trying to redefine reality, how about just eating less and working out more? You know, when you go to McDonald’s order a plain hamburger instead of the Double Quarter Pounder with Cheese, large Fries, and a “diet” soft drink (as if the drink is going to make up for the rest). Or maybe stop sucking down those Venti® Caramel Frappuccinos® like Britney. And step away from the computer and go walk around the block. It’s a win-win situation, for you and for those who have to look at you.

    What’s with all the multiple posts. It takes a few moments for your comment to show-up. Stop hitting the freaking post button morons.

    To: #195. The Voice of Reason:
    Alessandra Ambrosio is in fact anorexic, just not to the level of the photos you posted. According to her website she is 5’10″ and weighs 112 lbs which gives her a BMI of 16.1. The lower limit for a healthy BMI is 18.5. And judging by the lack of boobs I saw on the VS TV special I would guess most of the models are underweight.

    There are lots and lots of overweight women in America, but Jennifer Love Hewitt is not one of them. You only think she is because you’ve spent so much time looking at underweight women that you think women at a heathy weight are fat.

  45. e

    say what you want to abut her but don’t diss other women. I know that most of the men on here are assholes, but be cunty to the people who are asking for it ie the celebs. Oh and any man who comments here on a GOSSIP-site with snide little comments are middleaged housewives with dicks rather than men. And I hated this one as audrey hepburn. She ain’t fat but she IS without any talent.

  46. apt

    she has eyes and an assistant so really there is no excuse for wearing such an unflattering bathing suit, but be real she is not fat.

  47. again

    im pretty sure she is overweight for her height, just not obese
    her thighs look like shit.

    This was a good point.
    JLH is a crap actress known for her body. She gets paid more than heart surgeons and many other people with actual useful jobs. The least she could do is not be a lazy glutton and go to the gym. It is what she is paid for.

    From the the waist up to the neck ( i personally think her face sucks ) she is not bad. But the lower body is fat as hell and as more cottage cheese than MANY REGULAR women in their 20s that aren’t paid to look good.

  48. extracheeseplease

    That looks like a ring from Sears…I think I saw it in the Sunday advertisements…totally embarrassing.
