Jennifer Love Hewitt Blasts Media for Weight Comments

Fat? I don't think so. Jennifer Love Hewitt felt the need to take time out from celebrating her engagement to Ross McCall to address the recent comments about her weight.

Jen was photographed frolicking on the beach with her love, in a black bikini, which caused tons of media reports saying The Ghost Whisperer actress has "piled on the pounds." Jen decided she wasn't just going to sit around and let the media dog her. She posted this message on her website, defending herself and women everywhere: "This is the last time I will address this subject. I've sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women's bodies are constantly scrutinized. 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 a size 0 doesn't make you beautiful. What I should be doing is celebrating some of the best days of my life and my engagement to the man of my dreams, instead of having to deal with photographers taking invasive pictures from bad angles. I know what I look like, and so do my friends and family. And 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."

Good for Jen! She's is not even close to fat and, more than anything, I'm glad she knows it. Screw everybody else.
