Jennifer Love Hewitt Recalls Facing “Incredibly Inappropriate” Questions About Her Body as a Young Star

Jennifer Love Hewitt Humbled by Her “9-1-1” Casting

Jennifer Love Hewitt is just another female celeb who cringes when reflecting on the headlines written about her—or more accurately, her appearance—in the aughts. 

Though the 2001 movie Heartbreakers was a hit at the box office, critics and tabloids were more fascinated with Jennifer’s body, which was on full display throughout the film. The actress was inundated with questions about her figure, and as Jennifer looks back on that time in her life in a new interview with Vulture, published Monday, March 29, she’s thinking to herself, “Gosh, I wish that I had known how inappropriate that was so I could have defended myself somehow or just not answered those questions.”

“The conversation for a very long time in my career was always about [my body] first—then, ‘Oh yeah, you were really great in the movie, too,’ later,” the 42-year-old mom recalls. “I didn’t get it. That’s just what I looked like, and I was doing my job.”

And though she didn’t understand the fascination with her body, she says, “I just started to [prepare myself], like, ‘I know I’m doing an interview today, so I’m pretty sure at least 20 of the 40 minutes is going to be about boobs and body stuff, so we’ll just get that out of the way and then maybe they’ll ask me something else.'”

Her nonchalant attitude towards their invasive questions were a symptom of the times Jennifer explains, recalling how even though “interviewers were asking what now would be incredibly inappropriate, gross things, it didn’t feel that way” at the time. She adds, “For some reason, in my brain, I was able to just go, ‘Okay, well, I guess they wouldn’t be asking if it was inappropriate.'”

That being said, the star says hindsight is 20/20 and she understands why she was so annoyed by interviewer’s questions. She recalls, “At a press junket for I Know or I Still Know What You Did Last Summer, I remember purposely wearing a T-shirt that said ‘Silicone Free’ on it because I was so annoyed, and I knew something about boobs was gonna be the first question out of [reporters’] mouths. I was really tired of that conversation.”

She was even more perturbed when promoting Heartbreakers because she was acting alongside Sigourney WeaverRay Liotta and Gene Hackman, but the focus remained on her appearance.

“I was disappointed that it was all about body stuff, because I had really worked hard in that movie to do a good job as an actress,” Jennifer shares. “So I remember one specific moment wishing that the acting had overshadowed all that—that for five minutes, they had said I was really great in the movie versus made a body comment.”

Jennifer also acknowledges that she was dressed in a more “risqué” manner for the role of Page, but said everyone was respectful of her boundaries, including the director. The Ghost Whisperer actor remembers, “One thing that really stood out to me when we did the movie is how much people were looking out for me and really making sure that I never felt weird or on display. I remember there were more than a couple of people that were like, ‘Okay, let’s make sure boobs are in place and we’re not seeing underwear.'”

She also says that, despite her more sexual scenes, the men in the cast never made her feel uncomfortable, including Ray, who she remembers as the “kindest, funniest, sweetest man who made me feel so comfortable.”

And when it came to filming that scene, the one where her hair gets caught in Ray’s pant zipper, Jennifer says she brought her mom and grandmother to ensure there was no funny business. As she put it, “I don’t really know why I did that, except that they were the two biggest female influences in my life. I wanted to feel comfortable. There was a part of me, also, that wanted them to feel comfortable with what I was going to be doing, and I knew if I can do this scene in front of my mom and my grandmother and they’re cool with it, the rest of the movie is gonna be just fine.”

Now that she’s had the time to reflect on her past, Jennifer is hopeful for the future and a potential sequel. But if that movie every comes to fruition, don’t expect her to be in those same itty-bitty outfits. As she puts it, “I’m in my 40s, so I’m not going to do [Page’s] wardrobe again right now.”

The Challenge’s Ashley Cain Says His 8-Month-Old Daughter Has “Days to Live”

the-challenge’s-ashley-cain-says-his-8-month-old-daughter-has-“days-to-live”

In Memoriam: Fallen Stars of 2020

The Challenge star Ashley Cain has some devastating news about his baby girl. 

On April 8, he took to Instagram to update his followers on his infant daughter, Azaylia Diamond, who he shares with Safiyya Vorajee. It was just one month ago that Ashley, who appeared on multiple seasons of The Challenge’s Ex on the Beach UK as well as The Challenge: War of the Worlds, revealed to fans that the 8 month old’s leukemia had returned. In the new video posted online, he explained how, after multiple treatments to save his daughter’s life, there is nothing more doctors can do to help his little one. 

“Last week, we had the bone marrow test and the lumber puncture and bloods taken to send to Singapore in the hope that they could create a CAR-T therapy to save Azaylia’s life,” he said. “Then, we had to have a CT scan on her head and the results came back the next day, saying that Azaylia’s got two very big tumors on her brain.”

He shared that chemo has failed to work and explained that even a “spinal tap” could be too dangerous for Azaylia, leaving the parents with no other treatment options. 

“They think she’s only got one, two days to live,” the reality star said. “It could even be that night.”

Ashley added, “We’re going back home and we’re gonna try and make our baby as comfortable as possible. We’re gonna be strong, and we’re gonna go out with honor.”

Instagram

On April 9, Ashley shared an Instagram photo of Azaylia taking a bath in the hospital, along with an emotional caption. 

“9 days ago consultants told us my daughter had 1-2 days to live, but thought she may pass that evening,” he wrote. “Even with a barbaric disease consuming her blood, tumours in her brain and organs and amounts of pain I cannot imagine… She is still battling through 9 days later, with parts of the day with nothing but smiles despite her discomfort.”

He continued, “This is a testament of this little girls strength and the fight she has possessed all of the way through. She has fought a battle that not many, if any, of us could have endured and she’s earned the love and respect of many on the way. The truth is though, I hope and pray that I have earned hers! Even through the hardest and saddest time of my life, she has found a way to make it better. She has shined light on the darkest of days and she has opened my heart to amounts of love I couldn’t believe possible!”

Prince Harry to Reunite With Royal Family in U.K. for Prince Philip’s Funeral

Following the death of Prince Philip on April 9, the Duke of Edinburgh’s grandson Prince Harry is planning to fly overseas to pay his respects.

Remembering Prince Philip & His Relationship With Queen Elizabeth

Prince Harry will join the royal family overseas as they mourn the death of Prince Philip, multiple outlets report.

Following the Duke of Edinburgh’s passing on April 9, many royal fans began to wonder if the Duke of Sussex would make it home to the U.K. for his grandfather’s funeral, as he currently resides in California with pregnant wife Meghan Markle and son Archie Harrison. However, according to People, Harry is likely to be in attendance at the service, which is set to take place at his and Meghan’s wedding venue, St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle.

While it is not known if the Duchess of Sussex, who is due to give birth to a baby girl this summer, will join him on the trip overseas, the couple did honor Philip following his passing. “Thank you for your service,” read a message on their Archewell website, which is currently an in memoriam to Philip. “You will be greatly missed.”

If he does indeed fly to the U.K., Harry will reunite with his family for the first time since his and Meghan’s bombshell interview with Oprah Winfrey. During the tell-all, which aired in early March, the couple opened up about the lack of support they felt as senior royals and detailed an alleged conversation the family had about Archie’s skin tone.

Days later, Queen Elizabeth II spoke out about the allegations. “The whole family is saddened to learn the full extent of how challenging the last few years have been for Harry and Meghan,” Buckingham Palace said in a statement on her behalf. “The issues raised, particularly that of race, are concerning. While some recollections may vary, they are taken very seriously and will be addressed by the family privately. Harry, Meghan and Archie will always be much loved family members.”

Adam Levine and His Daughters Sport Matching Tie-Dye Dresses in Rare Family Photo

adam-levine-and-his-daughters-sport-matching-tie-dye-dresses-in-rare-family-photo

Twinning! Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo showed off their fun tie-dye dresses that perfectly matched their daughters’ outfits.

Do “The Voice” Coaches Miss Adam Levine?

When in doubt, think pink!

At least, that seems to be the motto in Adam Levine and Behati Prinsloo‘s household. While the Maroon 5 frontman and Victoria’s Secret veteran are used to wearing chic designer ‘fits for their respective careers, the pair’s latest ensemble is really giving their fans heart-eyes.

The former Voice coach took to Instagram to share a rare family photo that captured him and his wife sporting the same matching dresses as their daughters—Dusty Rose Levine, 4, and Gio Grace Levine, 3.

In the sweet snapshot, the longtime couple and their little ones stuck a pose in their pink tie-dye dresses. The 42-year-old musician accessorized his pastel pink number with vibrant periwinkle-colored sneakers, while the 32-year-old model styled her outfit with bright yellow pants.

“girls just wanna have fun,” Adam captioned his post, adding the painting nails emoji.

The twinning moment was too cute for words!

The family’s fashionable photo comes two months after Behati celebrated Gio’s birthday in February.

“my bestie turned 3,” the proud mom shared at the time, adding three green alien emojis to perfectly capture their costume.

Both Adam and the supermodel tend to keep their kids’ lives out of the spotlight. While they share limited posts of Dusty and Gio, they rarely show images of their faces.

Instagram

In recent years, the couple has also kept a low profile and has continued to remain private about their personal lives. However, around this time last year, they addressed rumors that their family was expanding.

Last March, the supermodel sparked pregnancy rumors after she uploaded a photo to Instagram that many of her followers believed was an ultrasound. At the time, a source told E! News she was “not pregnant.”

As the source explained, “It was one of her daughters that took her phone and posted accidentally.”

Following the speculation, Behati set the record straight, writing, “Guys. This is not an ultrasound lol. Dusty got hold of my phone and somehow posted this picture from my photo library i thought it was weird and cool and left it up. But everyone is now congratulating me on my 3rd pregnancy. it’s a close up of my black and white splatter sweat pants!”

With that, relive the couple’s cutest pics here.
