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?

So, Jen. We meet again! What’s new, how are you, that’s just great. How’d that whole housewife-cum-prostitute movie work out? You know, I really really meant to watch it, but I had some serious episodes of 24 season 2 to catch up on. Oh, yeah, that and the movie was on Lifetime, and unless it’s Christmastime, I have a serious aversion to anything on that wretched channel.
What can I say — I’m a sucker for Holiday in Handcuffs seventeen times in seventeen days.
And isn’t Kathy Ireland or something big with Lifetime? Is that who designed your dress? Or maybe, you know, it was Alfred Dunner. He’s big in geriatric circles, I’ve heard. Either way, take cover. My grandma’s on her way, she doesn’t remember things all that well, and she’s pissed. Take cover, woman!

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.

Jennifer Love Hewitt photographed leaving her home in LA yesterday afternoon, looking not-at-all demented, demonic, or douchey.

Ohmigawd, ohmigawd, ohmigawd. Have you guys seen this trailer for Jennifer Love Hewitt’s new Lifetime Original movie, The Client List? It has every single element that we love about Lifetime Originals– women being morally compromised, obvious story lines, tons of no-name over-actors. On top of all that, it’s a JLH joint, and while I haven’t seen a movie she was in since I was maybe 20 years old, I had no idea that she sucked this bad at acting. I mean, truly. If she’s always sucked this bad at acting, then this woman is the original Paris Hilton. Or something.
But regardless of all that, The Client List looks amazing. This is totally up my alley. Some housewife needs to make ends meat, so she starts whoring herself behind her husband’s back. Then she gets greedy. And then she gets BUSTED. By the title, I can tell that the whole “getting busted” thing is just a catalyst to watch her sell out client after client in order to keep herself out of jail. Bang bang! That’s my shit right there! That’s the kinda quality writing that keeps me coming back for more, Lifetime! I’m not even going to see that Pixar movie now that I know I have this to look forward to.
Y’all psyched for July now?

OK, well, no, she’s not a “big, fat” hypocrite, but she’s a hypocrite, nevertheless.
Hewitt speaks exclusively to People magazine and decries the media machine that perpetuates the idea that “thin is in.” Kind of. Hewitt states that a woman should “love” the way she “looks,” because it’s all she’s got — in a manner of speaking:
“I just really worked on my mental part for a couple of weeks, got myself in a really good mindset,” she says, adding that she was “bummed out” and “had to get over the embarrassment of the photos.
The aforementioned photos were the notorious photos that were taken of the star a few years back when she was a bit heavier than she is now.
I really want to like this girl. Honestly, I really, really do. But her constant waffling about what’s “in” and what’s not really puts me off, not to mention the fact that she constantly spouts advice on topics that she kind of has no idea about whatsoever. When she claimed a few years ago that she didn’t care what the media thought of her then-rounder figure, I really respected her. She allowed herself to be photographed in a shape that Hollywood considers “fat” and “undesirable,” and she claimed not to care what the public thought, as long as she was happy about herself. I liked that, and it was because she had gone from a skinny-mini Hollywood starlet to a more normalized version of a person who’s not eighty pounds soaking wet, and it was refreshing.
Hewitt also states that while she’s lost a bunch of weight (but doesn’t specify how much), she’s still a “work in progress,” and feels that a few months from now, she’ll be where she wants to be:
“I think I’m a work in progress,” she admits. “[But] I feel it’s so much better than [it was] a year-and-a-half ago, and I feel like in another eight months, it’s going to be so much better than it is today.”
Yeah, either that, or you’re going to join the ranks of Kate Moss and all of the other thinspired Hollywood starlets that don’t have an inch to pinch, and jutting bones that stick out at all odd angles.
Uh-huh. I’m confused at her sudden change of heart on the topic of bodily acceptance. Speaking out now and saying that she was, indeed, embarrassed by the release of those photos? I feel misled. And I’m definitely kind of bummed.
