Jennifer Love Hewitt is Playing a Victim on ‘SVU’ and Frankly, I Couldn’t Be More Thrilled

Jennifer Love Hewitt was walking around NYC with blood dripping down her face, and the lesion wasn’t from reality smacking her upside the head, unfortunately. Nope, my girl JLH is filming a guest spot on Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, and from the look of these photos, she’s playing the victim. Ah-mazing.

There’s really nothing better about TV these days than celebrities (washed up or relevant) guest starring on SVU. Perhaps it’s the writing or direction or the amazing cast, but for some reason celebs always manage to tear those roles up. Remember Rosie Perez last season? Or Lily Tomlin? Hey, even Mischa wasn’t half bad. All I’m saying is, Love has a chance to redeem herself for after what she put us through with The Client List (P.S. Check out Chelsea Handler’s review of the Lifetime Original movie. Brutal.)

Who was your favorite SVU guest star?

  • How is she washed up? Just ended a 5 year run on a successful tv show. The movie you refer to was the second highest rated cable television movie this year(so obviously she can deliver the audience) and she is one of the most photographed women in Hollywood. Guaranteed she’ll deliver a big audience for this episode of Law & Order: Special Victims Unit. I’m not saying she’s a great actress….but she’s far from washed up.

  • Have you ever watched this show? It is THE most depressing program on TV hands down. The writers are able to come up with the like the most horrendous scenarios regarding crimes against humanity and some how make them even more bleak. On any given episode, the victim isn’t just raped, they also get AIDS. And if that isn’t bad enough, the perpetrator will get off on a technicality. Throw in about 10,000 lbs. of melodrama and you have L&O: SVU. It’s a great show to watch if when you’re just feeling a little happy and need to be brought down.

  • Personally, I like Jennifer and think she’s a great actress. Plus, I think I really like the tired eyes that she’s showing in the photo as that is what I look liked in the morning. Hug & Kisses to you baby girl!
