She was voted 1999's 'Sexiest Woman in the World' by Maxim magazine - and has been in various magazine's top 100 no less than 14 times since then.
Yet for some reason, the Internet is abuzz with articles attacking Jennifer Love Hewitt after candid shots of her in a bikini were released on the 'net.
It's a lot like the attacks levelled at Britney Spears when she made her MTV Music Awards appearance earlier this year. The modern media is incredibly hypocritical. One minute they're paying lip service to the campaign against unrealistic expectations for women's bodies - then they're attacking beautiful, healthy looking women for not being anorexic stick figures.
Maybe these aren't the most flattering pictures of Jennifer Love Hewitt - but then again, they're not airbrushed, photoshopped and silicon enhanced, like most of the cover models these days.
But whatever way you look at it, Jennifer Love Hewitt is still an astonishingly beautiful woman and I'd take her over a 'conventionally attractive' Barbie doll any day of the year. I've mentioned my affection for her here (where I exposed her curious habit of prescribing her dog Prozac.)
It's about time the media started accepting women for being beautiful on their own terms - instead of pressuring them to conform to an unrealistic standard invented by other bitchy women and homosexual men.
Argueably, the only standards a woman should conform to are her own - but for the record, I believe 9 out of 10 men like a woman who doesn't look like she'll snap the first time you give her a hug.
Jennifer - don't listen to your critics. You're absolutely beautiful just the way you are.
