Jennifer Love Hewitt, who was once somewhat of an It Girl, has resorted to making Lifetime Original movies and plugging them enthusiastically as if she didn’t just take the job to pay her electric bill. Her movie The Client List, which premieres tonight, is about a mother who resorts to prostitution in order to cover her family’s bills.
Jennifer talked with Us Weekly about the “film” and made it sound like it’s a really important piece about where we’re at as a society:
“Given where we are economically, it’s an interesting story… this is the most recession-proof business there is! It’s really a movie about the human condition, and the heart, and where life can take you. [Samantha] has no choice at the end of the day but to give everything that she can in order to take care of her family. She really thinks she’s doing the best thing possible for them, and it just gets out of hand. … It takes her on a rollercoaster ride.”
Wow, if that’s not a woman who’s never had to worry about her finances’ opinion on prostitution, than I don’t know what is.
Jennifer’s acting getting mixed reviews, but that only makes me want to watch it even more. I can tell that this is going to be one of those unforgettable Mother May I Sleep With Danger?/Baby Monitor: Sound Of Fear-level Lifetime Originals.
