Jennifer Love Hewitt Sheds Pounds and Gains Some Wisdom

No stranger to unwanted media attention on her body size, Jennifer Love Hewitt has spoken out in the past on the media's constant scrutiny of women's bodies. Photos of her with a fuller-figure in a bathing suit created quite a stir last year and the frenzy over her weight gain followed by her shedding 18 pounds made her feel "a little embarrassed. It made me a little sad. It hurt my feelings."

She told Us Weekly:

It gets silly. We're all supposed to look how we're supposed to look. We're made to be different people. Not everybody can be super tall and super skinny. You have to look inside yourself and find your own confidence. It wavers from day to day, but that's human nature.

Although her choice of footwear for a game of tennis may not be the best, her words about body image and self-confidence are wise and true.

Jeez so we slag her off for putting on weight then for losing weight? I'd sure be pissed if people were scrutinizing my diet the way we do hers! Also, those shoes are gorgeous.

J.L.H looks fabulous! Good on her. I felt terrible for her when TMZ and other newscasts ran the story of her in her bathing suit. But now, she's looking fit, she's so pretty and she's out exercising. All be it, in inappropriate foot wear but who cares. That takes skill, my ankle would roll returning my first serve.

I think she looks better, and is healthier at this weight. If she lost 18 lbs, and looks the way she does now, there was no way she was size 2. At her petite height and frame (in spite of her full breasts), about 5 lbs is one dress size. I know because I have a similar built, but as an hourglass, not a pear. Sorry, I had to bring up her size 2 comment. :)

Yeah, I hope that's a photo shoot. I don't know how one plays tennis in those shoes!

She was already fit in years past. $hit happens, life happens and now she's back to where she was. So what? Imagine having the world stare at you - in YOUR bikini!! Tennis? Completely a spontaneous moment. Again caught on camera for all to see. Ahh the price of celebrity...

She looks amazing! If she lost the weight to feel better about herself, then great! If she lost it to appease the public, then I'm sad for her.

I def. believe that she wears a zero from these photos, and really probably was a 2 or 4 before (think vanity sizing, people!). She looks like a tiny girl with a pear shaped body. I can certainly sympathize with having a very tiny body thigh fat that never seems to want to disappear!

WTF! Who wears shoes when playing tennis? This girl is such a twit.

I hope she isn't really playing tennis with those shoes on; she's going to twist her ankle doing that. I feel bad for her...she's trying to defend being your natural size/shape, yet she feels pressured to lose a couple of extra vanity pounds so she WILL fit the mold.

I saw these pictures yesterday and just wondered what is she thinking? What motivation would someone have for playing tennis in a bikini or wedge heels, much less a bikini AND wedge heels.

ugh! I'm tired of people worrying about other people's weight gain/loss! I get harrassed by my coworkers about my meal choices which have helped me shed pounds! Meanwhile, they are still trying to lose weight with a hot fudge sundae on their hands.

I get the impression she's not trying out for Wimbledon and was probably caught in a moment of serious goofing around. I think her body looks fantastic, I'd kill for those abs!

I completely agree with her quote. I do not agree one bit with her footwear.
