Jennifer Love Hewitt Biography And Filmography:

By the mid-1990s, Jennifer Love Hewitt changed from a young child actress into a men’s magazine stronghold with her role in the thriller, “I Know What You Did Last Summer” (1997) with Ryan Phillippe. She had already started developing a loyal following with her frisky, girl-next-door role on the smash hit teen television drama “Party of Five” (1994-2000), but her sexy tops and believable screaming in the blockbuster made her into a sexy celebrity. Her recognition resulted in her own series, a sequel movie, and the release of several pop music albums before she matured into a career of family films and television, including a starring role in the supernatural drama series “The Ghost Whisperer” (2005- ).

Regardless of what critics might have said later on, Jennifer Love Hewitt did not assume her popular middle name as a Hollywood trick; it was given to her on Feb. 21, 1979 — the day she was born in Waco, Texas. Hewitt was raised in the small town of Killeen, which could barley contain her talent even at the age of six when she performed “The Greatest Love of All” at a county fair. Dance classes and unrehearsed performances at local theaters followed, leading to the nine-year-old Hewitt being cast in an worldwide touring song and dance group called "Texas Show Team". The following year, she won a contract with L.A. Gear sneakers, appearing in a television commercial with Michael Jordan. At the suggestion of a talent scout, she and her mother relocated to Los Angeles so that she could try her luck in Hollywood.


Jennifer Love Hewitt quickly landed roles in television commercials, signing a two-year spokesmodel contract with Mattel’s Barbie. In 1989, she was hired on the Disney sitcom "Kids Inc." which focused on a natural, singing and dancing skilled child band that performed current music hits. Still under contract with L.A. Gear, she recorded a promotional track for the brand – a cover of Blondie’s “Heart of Glass” – and with the press coverage that “Kids Inc.” was getting, seemed sure to launch a young teen pop career. After taping a Barbie-themed workout video under her Mattel contract in 1991, she released an album called "Love Songs" (1992) for Japan pop audiences. 

The young actress was then cast in three television series – including two failed pilots and one that ran half a season, and was then appointed as Youth Ambassador at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Outside the song and dance business, she had acting roles in “Munchie” (1992), "Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit" (1993), and the television film “Little Miss Millions” (1993). Two different sitcom families declared her as a young teenage daughter in 1994. First was the  midseason replacement “Byrds of Paradise” (1994) which was soon cancelled, and in the Fall, “McKenna” (1994-95) for just one season.

In 1995, Hewitt found her role with the teen drama “Party of Five.” The show was already a smash hit but was still trying to grow ratings when she joined the cast in the second season, playing Sarah Reeves, girlfriend of Bailey Salinger. Jennifer soon became a favorite with the younger crowd, earning nominations from the Kids Choice Awards and Teen Choice Awards, as well as a prominent nomination from the adults in 1996 with the show’s Golden Globe Award for Best Drama. She took advantage of her new status to record an album, as her first  release the previous year had not done well. 

In 1997, the young and innocent actress, who had spent most of her “Party of Five” career veiled beneath Gap clothes, landed a leading role in the thriller "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (1997).  The film was a hit at the box office, and helped create the teen horror genre as one of the fastest growing of the time. For her role as go-getting young teen Julie, she won a “Favorite Newcomer Award” at the Blockbuster Entertainment Awards. A sequel the following year, “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer” (1998) failed to make the same impression, however she enjoyed success with “Can’t Hardly Wait” (1998) with Seth Green, a comedy about high school graduates with a different agenda of life on graduation night.

Hewitt was very open about the fact that she continued to live with her parents well into her twenties, and was even embarrassed to admit that she did not drink, smoke, take drugs, or live any sort of exciting Hollywood lifestyle. Magazine tabloids connecting her to every single young male suggested otherwise – including Wilmer Valderrama, John Mayer and Carson Daly.

Her “Party” spin-off series “Time of Your Life” (1998-99) was canceled half way through the second season and she went on to star in the biography “The Audrey Hepburn Story” (2000), playing one of her all time idols. The now 21-year-old actress continued to get away from young innocent teen roles, next starring on the big screen opposite Sigourney Weaver as a mother-daughter con artist team in "HeartBreakers" (2000). 

In a further attempt to distance herself from her good-girl public past, Jennifer took a role as the devil in "The Devil and Daniel Webster" (2001), a film directed by and starring Alec Baldwin, but it suffered from financial troubles and a delayed release. She next teamed with Jackie Chan for the family action comedy "The Tuxedo" (2002) about an unlucky driver who must take a comatose secret agent's place using his special hi-tech tuxedo. 

In 2005, Hewitt returned to regular series television in “The Ghost Whisperer” (2005- ), where she starred as a young paranormal investigator with the gift of communicating with earthbound spirits. Audiences seemed excited to see her in this new adult role – as she was nominated for a People’s Choice, Kids Choice, and Teen Choice Awards in 2006. In 2007, she received a Saturn Award for Best Actress in a Television Program.


The year 2008 was the year that Jennifer Love Hewitt came into her own. Her first feature that year was the animated comedy "The Magic 7" (2008) with Kevin Bacon, Meryl Streep and Demi Moore, about the six arch enemies of earth who are challenged by two kids and a five-toed dragon. Next was the animated adventure comedy "Delgo" (2008) with Val Kilmer, about Delgo, an adventurous but naive teenager, who must rally his group of friends to protect their world from conflict between the Lockni and Nohrin people. Hewitt then lent her voice to the television comedy ""Angry Little Girls" (2008), an animated series based on the comic about a group of disenchanted, crazy, gloomy, fresh and angry little girls. 

Hewitt wrapped her year with the dramatic comedy "She Had Brains, a Body, and the Ability to Make Men Love Her" (2009), a broad comedy take on the events surrounding a hooker housewife scandal that involved many prominent members of a small Texas town.
