  • Jennifer Love Hewitt: 'I love my body'

    JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT has lashed out at Hollywood’s obsession with criticising women’s bodies.

    The actress insisted there was nothing wrong with women who are not stick thin, saying ‘being a size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful’.

    Her comments came after unflattering photographs of her on holiday with her fiancé, the Scottish actor Scott McCall, were posted on celebrity gossip sites last week, showing that she is somewhat less toned than usual.

    Hitting back on her personal blog, the actor, who has modeled for Hanes, told fans: ‘I’ve sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women’s bodies are constantly scrutinised.

    ‘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 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful.’

    Love Hewitt, who was pictured celebrating her engagement with a holiday in Hawaii, added: ‘Like all women out there should, I love my body.

    ‘To all girls with butts, boobs, hips and a waist, put on a bikini ? put it on and stay strong.’
