Jennifer Love Hewitt. biography
Jennifer Love Hewitt was born on February 21, 1979, in Waco, Texas, and is one of the few Hollywood child stars to build a successful, long-lasting career in the entertainment business, which all began when she performed as Robin in the TV series Kids Incorporated from 1989 to 1991. Also a talented singer, Hewitt began expanding her creative reach early on with the release of her debut album Love Songs (1992) prior to landing her big break as the girl-next-door in Fox's hit TV series Party of Five (1995 - 1999).
Hewitt continued to gain popularity playing the All-American high school girl in the romantic comedies Trojan War (1997) and Can't Hardly Wait (1998) as well as the horror flick I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997) and its sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer (1998).
In 2001, Hewitt began to take on more mature, powerful women characters in the comedy Heartbreakers alongside Sigourney Weaver and later in the dramedy Shortcut to Happiness (2003) with Anthony Hopkins.
Like so many other rising stars, Hewitt then took on a less-substantial, but money-filled role in the animated comedy Garfield (2004) and its sequel Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties (2006) around the time she landed a leading role in the TV series The Ghost Whisperer (2005- 2010).
Soon after the show came to an end, Hewitt performed as Samantha Horton in the made-for-TV movie The Client List (2010) for which she earned a Golden Globe nomination for Best Actress (in a Mini-Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television) in 2011.
Hewitt's most recent projects include, a reoccurring role on the TV series Hot in Cleveland (2011 - 2012), the romantic comedy Jewtopia (2012) and the leading role in the TV series The Client List (2012 - 2013).
