Jennifer Love Hewitt Talks About the Media and Body Image

Jennifer Love Hewitt Sets the Record Straight

The recently engaged Jennifer Love Hewitt is fighting back against media scrutiny over her weight during a celebratory trip to Hawaii with her fiancé. After some invasive pictures were strewn across the internet of Hewitt, she posted comments on her own blog striking back about how ridiculous it all is. She writes:

"I've sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women's bodies are constantly scrutinized. To set the record straight, I'm not upset for me, but for all of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image.

A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size 0 doesn't make you beautiful.

What I should be doing is celebrating some of the best days of my life and my engagement to the man of my dreams, instead of having to deal with photographers taking invasive pictures from bad angles. I know what I look like, and so do my friends and family. And like all women out there should, I love my body.

To all girls with butts, boobs, hips, and a waist, put on a bikini — put it on and stay strong."

I know I say this a lot but, you go girl! Do you think she did the right thing by speaking out?
