Does the Jennifer Love Hewitt Cover Story Surprise You?

Jennifer Love Hewitt scored the latest cover of Us Weekly, thanks to a new body she earned after only 10 weeks of diet and exercise. We're all for staying healthy and getting in shape, but it's interesting to see Jennifer boasting about her slim down especially after her strong public statement about loving her curvy body following mean spirited comments on photos of her in a bikini. Her trainer claims that her desire to lose weight had nothing to do with the negative comments in the media, but what do you think — does the Jennifer Love cover story surprise you?

That was hypocritical of her after all the hooplah she made over those comments, but if she did this to be happier, then I guess you can't put her down for that.

she's still curvy. when she said she loved her curves, she didn't mean she loved her fat. she meant she loved her body and the shape of her body which she' still has. she just lost the fat. even if she was stick thin she's still have a curvy shape to her body

If anything, I put the onus of responsibility on Hollywood and society as a whole. AT THE TIME she probably felt she looked okay carrying a few extra pounds. However as the outcry over her weight gain mounted, she was probably given an ultimatum or at least pressured into slimming down by Hollywood execs. I like to think I have a strong sense of self, along with my core values, however if I felt my livelihood was at stake, or people were poking fun at me at every turn, I would probably acquiesce and conform to other people's expectations as well. It's a sad commentary when a "story" such as this garners so many headlines, but the fact is we live in a superficial world, and I don't see that changing anytime soon! The old adage, " if you can't beat em, you might as well join them" comes to mind here LOL. Plus, she wants to look her best for the impending nuptials.

I say get over her being on the cover with this as the headline. She's in Hollywood; if people are genuinely looking to her to be a role model in this, they are sadly misguided. Her job is literally to look good, not to provide support for individuals who feel put upon by their and others' fascination with being young, thin and beautiful. And - as others have stated - she might have personal reasons, not necessarily professional ones for slimming down. Or a health reason.

anyone that thinks she's too thin now is crazy. She's healthy, but by no means 'too skinny'. I wouldn't even call her skinny. She's what normal women should look like.

So she must be a size -2 now right? This is exactly why I don't have sympathy for celebs especially when it comes to their weight, and especially fat ones. They will say anything in order to get the public on their side when in fact they are no better than those who criticize them. She is still a fat bitch to me.

1st of all there is NOOOO way she was a size 2 before!!! More like a size 10! I'm a size 0 and at 105 lbs.. She looks in the before pic to be about 135-140. NOT A SIZE 2! The after pic is FAKE... that is totally photoshopped. Even if she did lose weight they ALWAYS photoshop pics.. I know people who work out in LA and everything is retouched even if it looked good to begin with.. That's Hollywood. A complete joke.

This is sad! She looked so much better! Btw, bad photoshopping - her head looks unbelievable huge compared to her "new bod". Boo, Jennifer!

treb - Did you also believe Kirstie Alley when she said she was barely 200 pounds at her heaviest? Because that is what she told People magazine. After she lost weight from Jenny Craig, she said that she was wrong and it was probably closer to 220 pounds. I'm not saying that Jennifer Love Hewitt was overweight like Kirstie was, but stars will go to great lengths to protect their image. We aren't 100% sure that she wasn't a size 2 when those bikini pictures were taken, but I think it was pretty obvious to anyone with two eyes that she was probably a size 6. And there is NOTHING wrong with that.

I don't feel anyway about her, but if she wants to lose weight that's her business. I can't even call her hypocritical with some of the shite I do.

No way in hell, she was a size 2 in the bikini photo. I don't blame her for losing the weight because she is a Hollywood actress and have to play the game. I wish she had been more honest and said the negative comments had motivated her to lose weight.

I think she felt the pressure, but that's normal in Hollywood. And why are people feeling sorry for her??? She is rich and good looking. If she wanted to loose some weight there is nothing wrong with that, she still has curves. I would have a problem with it if she would have gone too far and her veins were popping out of her arms and forehead like some other celebs. In this pic she looks pretty good.

Yes, because she said she liked her body

Badly done Jennifer, badly done. You don't spout off about being proud of the size you are and then put yourself on US magazine about losing weight. I have no problem with her losing the weight, I have a problem with her being plastered on US magazine and going on about it. I didn't believe she was a size 2 when she said she was and like others have said that would make her a size 0000 now. :oy: I certainly don't believe that the cover shot has been left untouched, it has photoshop written all over it. But then, that's no surprise.

I think it's pretty pathetic that a celebrity is a cover story simply for weight loss. Maybe it would be different if she was grossly overweight and had claimed her health back but this just sends the message that weight loss is a huge achievement for a women and encourages other women to spend their precious time in pursuit of the size 0 rather than more important things. If a celebrity completes a degree they don't give them a cover story so why celebrate so much over a few pounds. She'll probably end up yo-yo dieting after this and will end up on a 'stars stack it on cover' anyway.

Makes me feel like I need to slim down.

I don't think she's hypocritical at all. She decided MONTHS after all the hoopla that she wanted to drop a few pounds, found a healthy way to do it, and did it. I'm happy with my curves, but that doesn't mean that I wouldn't drop a few.
melissabritt melissabritt 8 years
I'll admit she looks great now. I just wish she would admit she wasn't a 2 then. 18 lbs??? She'd be like a kids size 10. I hate how people "love & embrace" their curves (think America Ferarra, Jennifer Love...) and then suddenly SLIM. It's like they are only happy abt the curves until they can get the will power to diet.
