I'm A Little Confused Again


Another Jennifer, but this time I am confused about Jennifer Love Hewitt. No, not why she had to spend every night with her mom until she reached 27, but instead something else.

I saw that US Weekly cover yesterday of her and didn't really pay attention to it, because, well, hell it's Jennifer Love Hewitt. But, then as is the case when I have had a drink or four I started thinking about what she said last year when she was teased for looking large in a swimsuit. Not on this site by the way, but every other site in the free world.

She said that people are beautiful no matter their size. I agree which is why I didn't trash her size and never do, except for Val Kilmer, oh, and Jason Lewis when he looked bloated a few weeks ago. If everyone looked the same it would be a boring place.

Anyway, she went on and on about the same type of theme as what I just wrote and all the magazines loved her and she just was seen as an example of loving yourself no matter your size. So, the next thing you know she is on the cover of US bragging about how she lost 18 pounds in 10 weeks.

Umm, why? And why the cover? Look, if you are unhappy with your weight or your appearance, then change it. I'm not pissed at Jennifer for losing the weight. That is her decision to make. What I am pissed at is that she went around blasting the world for calling people fat and now she is on the cover of a weekly tabloid basically taking a jab at anyone who also can't lose 18 pounds in ten weeks. She spent her money and hired a trainer and had US following her around and she became the embodiment of what she was trashing last year.

Why couldn't she lose the weight quietly and with no publicity? That would have been fine. Instead she is telling the world, "You know what? I was fat last year and now I want to show you what you are supposed to look like. What? You can't lose 18 pounds in ten weeks? Why? Are you a loser or something? You don't have 8 hours a day to devote to nothing else but losing weight and hiring a trainer and a chef?"

That is what she is doing. To me she has taken all of the good things she did last year and has become nothing more than a hypocrite.

I thought she was a size 2 last year--now she must be invisible.
And does anyone care?

Ruh Roh!

Last time you were confused we received a gazillion posts with a gazillion quotes!

I like JLH and respected her comments on the situation last year. It must have bothered her more than she let on. I kind of wished she didn't go on the cover, but, at least this way, the tabs won't start wondering if she developed an eating disorder.

I agree and disagree. I did like what she said last year, but honestly what are you supposed to say when the whole world just called you fat? Like she's going to come out and say that she hates herself and she's been trying really hard to lose weight? Uh, no. I too was thrown off by the whole I lost weight cover though too. Although if she did lose the weight and didn't say anything, wouldn't she then look like a hypocrite? This way she gets her 'story' out first. But as a woman, I think go her for losing the weight and looking fab. *shrugs*

I'M A SIZE 0, AND NOT SKINNY....

I just think this is a typical PR move when your female client is called "fat" by the media. It's so bloody boring.

1. Have female celebrity go on and on that people are beautiful no matter their size = magazines eat this up, people relate to anyone with a "weight" problem.

2. Employ personal trainer and cook for female celebrity, lose the weight = more press coverage.

Look at Queen Latifah, Tyra Banks, Kirstie Alley...I'm sure the list goes on.

Yawn. I'm sure the next female celebrity who gets called "fat" follows the same pattern.

irishstayc2 said...

yeah ok shazzba - I'm a size 22 and not fat... NOT!

I was a bit bummed when I saw the PR machine on this one - if she wanted to lose it more power to her but agree with the thought of a major flip-flop on her part.

I'm really just pissed off that all she had to lose was 18 lbs and she looks like that...

LOL! Good times.

Given that this is Jennifer Love Hewitt, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if she lost the weight just so she could be on the cover. This is the girl who carries tabloids around with her as props to up her odds of getting them to publish a picture of her.

equinox said...

Didn't like her when she was fat, don't like her now.

ea73 said...

Wow, JLH is a freakin' hypocrite for sure. I remember liking her more when that whole bikini debaucle happened. And now like her less.
It sucks that very few women - and it seems none in Hollywood - can truly like themselves if they don't conform to the optimal body type of the moment. Whether you're naturally a size 0 or a size 22, strut your stuff, ladies! Life's too short for idiots like JLH.

Bad Fish said...

She would have gotten a lot more positive press if she'd simply said, I didnt feel good about myself so I did what it took to feel better. A nice body through hard work is something to be proud of, but please, don't lie to me like that and say it wasn't because people called you fat.

mags said...

Agree bad fish. I don't believe she was a size 2 unless it's a completely new sizing chart.

LOL mooshki, it cracks me up when I see stars with a tabloid in hand.

bitchface said...

still butt fucking ugly.
just doesn't have a butt now i guess.
no matter.


i love how her shirt in the before picture says "save the future" (back says "of my career")

c17 said...

I'm guessing she's running out of $$$ & trying to revive a stalled career or just needs attention. Either or.

Either way, she loses what little credibility she had gained. Never cared for her much anyways.

Molly said...

hyp.o.crite.

it's her business what her body looks like. she said in the interview she didn't lose it because she thought she looked bad she just felt better eating healthier and working out. big deal. let her be.

jax said...

hey man if i got called fat in every mag, on most blogs and on tv...id get my ass to the gym while i cried myself to sleep at night. harsh all around.

but ya if you want to be a champion to women don't do it in 10 weeks, take your time and do it like normal chicks and THEN do the cover with a story about how hurt she was.
sympathy served up with a spoon!

yawwwwnnnn... people actually still give a crap about jennifer love hewitt?
WHO CARES??

i'm really bored with hearing about which celebs lost how many f****** pounds. We've inhabited the earth long enough to know that weight loss is not only possible but actually a part of life.

Guess what? the day i had my daughter i lost 25 lbs in about 20 minutes. Where's my 2-page article?

I'm actually wondering if she *gained* weight between the time those bikini pictures came out and when she decided to lose 18 pounds. Some of the "before" pics I've seen of her (in February, I think, in a white dress) versus the bikini pics (in November) seem like she's bigger.

Just a thought . . . Otherwise, I think it's unfortunate that she's trying to defend her normal body and then feels like she has to cave and conform.

RagDoll said...

OK, so for her NEXT trick, she's ditching the dude and going gay, yes? She's our TV faux-lesbian-for-publicity, right?

crichmond1000 said...

Hello...she lives in Hollywood, where they are paid to torment our children with impossible expectations. I'm sure she was devastated when everyone was making fun of her. I don't care how confident you are, that shit hurts and especially on every supermarket and drugstore counter in America. If you walk around all day with everyone calling you fat--you feel fat. Actually, the doctors suggest you lose one to two pounds a week. It sounds like she did it sensibly. Also, why would anyone complain about an actress trying to get publicity? Isn't that what they do? I really don't care one way or the other about her as an actress. Do we have to blast them when they gain weight and then kick their asses around when they try to get into shape? No wonder Mariah Carey and Lindsay Lohan are nuts.

Mame Dennis said...

Jax, 18 pounds in 10 weeks is actually normal. 1-2 pounds weight loss a week is just fine. When you are slightly overweight, and you start eating right and exercising, you will lose that much weight in the beginning. However, to me it looks more like 25 pounds, but then pictures are hard to tell by.

Ace Tomato said...

Maybe she's one of the too much blow blinds of yesteryore?

Molly said...

crichmond, bravo!!!!!!!

trashtalker said...

She lost 18 pounds, and yet Us felt the need to PhotoShop her even further for the cover. Guess they thought she should have lost 23 pounds.

Mooshki said...

I still think she's the answer to the blind about the stylist who is secretly sabotaging her. Have you SEEN some of the outfits they put her in on GW? BAD, BAD, BAD!

Dead Kennedy said...

Jennifer Love Hewitt still has that big old ass. And Alec Baldwin fucked her when he was rebounding from Kim Basinger. Talk about a fall from grace!

Jack was iced by the mob because Bobby double crossed them. Bobby was iced by Ethel for fucking around on her. Bobby iced Marilyn Monroe after he knocked her up because the cunt threatened to tell Ethel. Rosemary's frontal lobes were iced by Dad in one of his little "experiments" gone bad.

And I iced that cunt Mary Jo K. because the bitch threatened to tell Joan. Stupid cunt could swim, but I held her fucking head under water until she shit in the water and then died.

And I now return to my regularly scheduled programming of drooling uncontrollably and soiling my Depends. Because I'm Dead Kennedy and, like Rosemary, I am fucking brain damaged.
