Jennifer Love Hewitt Undressed
Jennifer Love Hewitt (born February 21, 1979) is an American actress and singer. She has appeared on the Fox television series Party of Five and starred in the I Know What You Did Last Summer films. Hewitt can currently be seen on the CBS television series Ghost Whisperer. As a singer, her single "How Do I Deal" reached twenty-six on the American charts. Hewitt was born in Waco, Texas.
She made her film debut in the independent film Munchie (1992). Hewitt became a film star after a lead role in the horror film I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997). The film had great box-office appeal (125,000,000 U.S. dollars worldwide), and Hewitt became one of the most popular young stars in the USA (together with her co-stars: Freddie Prinze Jr., Ryan Phillippe, and Sarah Michelle Gellar). She also played in the sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998). Other notable film roles included the high-school comedy Can't Hardly Wait (1998). She starred with Sigourney Weaver in the romantic comedy Heartbreakers (2001), which also featured Gene Hackman, Jason Lee, and Ray Liotta.
In 2000, Hewitt appeared in The Audrey Hepburn Story. That same year, she was the "most popular actress on television" due to her Q-rating (a measurement of a celebrity's popularity) of thirty-seven. For that reason, Nokia chose her to become its spokesperson, because of her "fresh image", and her being "a symbol of youthfulness and wholesomeness". In 2002, she was paired with Jackie Chan in the action comedy The Tuxedo.
Since September 2005, Hewitt has starred in the television series Ghost Whisperer. In Australia, Ghost Whisperer has been popular since its introduction; in the United States, it is the highest rated show on Friday nights.
To date, she has released four albums with some success, most notably outside the United States in regions such as Europe and Japan. In Japan, as a result of her success in music there, she is widely considered a pop star. Japan is also where Hewitt's first album was released. Her explanation for her success in Japan is that the Japanese "love perky music. The poppier the music, the better."
In March 2005, Hewitt was featured in Maxim magazine and their Girls of Maxim gallery. In May 2006, the magazine named her #29 in their Hot 100 list.
