Jennifer Love Hewitt (b. Feb. 21, 1979) is an American actress, singer-songwriter and screen director, well known for role as Sarah Reeves on the Fox series Party of Five. Hewitt began her acting career as a young girl in the Disney Channel series Kids Incorporated. She later starred in the 1997 box-office hit,
Child Song-and-Dance Star
I Know What You Did Last Summer. Several magazines have named her 'Sexiest Woman.'
Child Song-and-Dance Star
Actress, singer. Born February 21, 1979, in Waco, Texas. The daughter of two medical professionals who divorced when their daughter was just six months old, Jennifer Love Hewitt is one of those rare child song-and-dance stars who's managed to navigate the tricky road to adult success as a film and television actress.
Hewitt—who got her first name from her eight-year-old brother Todd, who chose the name Jennifer as an homage to his grade school crush—showed an early passion for music. She started performing at the age of three, when she made her debut as a singer at a livestock fair, not far from her childhood hometown of Nolanville, Texas.
Two years after that performance at the fair, Hewitt's mother enrolled her daughter in jazz, ballet, and tap dance classes, which eventually landed the young performer a spot on the prized Texas Show Team, a cadre of performers who toured Europe and the former Soviet Union.
In 1989, a talent scout recommended that Jennifer and her mother, Pat, move to Los Angeles so Hewitt could pursue better acting and dancing opportunities. It turned out to be sound advice. Hewitt quickly found work, appearing in TV commercials for companies like Mattel Toys and LA Gear, the latter of which brought her on board for a world tour to promote its sneakers.
That work soon led to a regular part on Disney's Kids Incorporated, a music driven show that catered perfectly to Hewitt's talents. Those same skills were also on full display for the 1991 release of the Dance! Workout With Barbie video, which featured the young actress. Other credits followed, not all of them huge successes, including a string of failed television pilots. In 1992, Hewitt stepped up her profile as a singer—at least overseas—when she released her first album, Love Songs, a saccharine-sweet collection of romantic teen ballads.
There was plenty of additional acting work, too, including a co-starring role in the 1993 film, Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit, with Whoopi Goldberg. In 1995, Hewitt earned the kind of successful television gig that had previously eluded her, starring as the pretty girl-next-door in the Fox Television drama, Party of Five. Stepping into the role during the program's second season, Hewitt soon became a household name, earning nominations from the Kids Choice Awards and Teen Choice awards, as well as helping the program land a Golden Globe Award for Best Drama in 1996.
Hewitt tried to cash in on her new celebrity with a second album of songs—this one released to an American audience. The album performed poorly, and the performer returned to the studio again to record what would become a 1996 self-titled album. And while it didn't produce any chart topping hits, Hewitt's voice and style earned some praise from skeptical critics.
"Her feathery light voice is more soulful than you'd imagine," wrote one reviewer. "Depending on your threshold for harmless, white-bread teen pop, this album could be a welcome addition to your collection because, frankly, it makes you like her even more than her image did in the first place." Hewitt released her fourth album, Barenaked in 2002, and followed up with Cool with You: The Platinum Collection, a compilation released in Asia in 2006.
As much as she could, Hewitt also continued to find more acting opportunities. Film work was a part of the mix, with roles in House Arrest (1996) and Trojan War (1997). Her big break, though, came the same year as the release of Trojan War, with the lead role in the surprise scream-fest hit, I Know What You Did Last Summer. Hewitt made the movie execs millions, and she earned herself big-time Hollywood stardom. While a sequel proved to lack the same kind of commercial punch, Hewitt scored another hit in 1998 with Can't Hardly Wait, whose story line centered on a night at a final high-school party.
Hewitt then starred in the unsuccessful Party of Five spin-off Time of Your Life, which found Hewitt's character relocating to New York to seek her real father. The show only earned enough ratings to make it halfway through the 1998-99 television year, and the actress started making moves to shed her teenage status. She attempted some fairly ambitious roles starting in 2000, when she starred in the made-for-TV movie, The Audrey Hepburn Story. A year later she starred alongside Sigourney Weaver and Gene Hackman in Heartbreakers (2001), which was followed up with a family action comedy with Jackie Chan in The Tuxedo (2002).
As one might expect, Hewitt's stardom has been accompanied with some criticism, both of her acting and her looks. Citing her performances in The Tuxedo and Garfield (2004), she was discussed as a possible Worst Actress nominee for the Razzie Awards, an annual ceremony dedicated to "saluting the worst that Hollywood has to offer."
In late 2007, Hewitt, a size two, was shown sporting a bikini on a beach in Hawaii that seemed to indicate a tad more girth than what fans had come to expect. The photograph coursed through the Web, attracting snarky comments from bloggers and others. Hewitt rushed to her own defense, and fired back at the commentators.
"I've sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women's bodies are constantly scrutinized," she wrote on her Web site. "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 two is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size zero doesn't make you beautiful."
Hewitt's love life is also a subject of scrutiny. The actress, who continued to live with her mother well into her 20s and has long proclaimed she doesn't drink, smoke, or swear, has been linked to a bevy of celebrity boyfriends, including singer Enrique Iglesias, musician John Mayer, talk show host Carson Daly, actor-model Kip Pardue, singer-songwriter Rich Cronin, and actor Will Friedle, among others.

There are internet rumblings that the 22-year-old actress - and Sexiest Woman in the world, according to one lad's mag - is a firm favourite to take on the role first brought to the big screen by her older counterpart in 2001.
Perfect pouts and tumbling dark locks aside, these two screen sirens share a lot in common - most famously, both have spoken about past same-sex daliances and both have scribed their bodies with tattoos.
