Jennifer Love Hewitt Defends Cheryl Burke

When critics made fun of Dancing with the Stars pro Cheryl Burke for what they deemed to be “sudden weight gain,” understandably she was hurt. Even her own DWTS pal Louis Van Amstel took a few cheap shots.

Now Jennifer Love Hewitt, 29, is stepping up in defense of Cheryl, 24, calling the comments "really insensitive." Jennifer is no stranger to the criticism as she was also a target when the paparazzi snapped her in a few unflattering photos last year.

On yesterday’s show, Jennifer told Ellen DeGeneres, "Cheryl Burke is so beautiful and an amazing dancer and that's what people should concentrate on. I think [people] feel like people don't have any feelings."

Kudos to Jennifer for speaking out and spreading the right message to her young fans.
