Jennifer Love Hewitt knows how to play to her strengths! In a new interview and cover shoot for Maxim, the 33-year-old actress teases the men's magazine with confessions of her sexy workouts, her "vajazzling" addiction -- and, of course, her favorite body part. (Hint: There are two of them.)
"It's horrible to say, but I like my boobs," says Hewitt. "They've always served me well. They're good."
Why is that horrible? Every woman should love her own boobs!
But here's something that is a bit questionable: Hewitt, who has been a Maxim cover girl four times, says the magazine is her "scale of how good I look."
"Whenever you guys call and say it's time to be on your cover, I'm like, 'OK, I'm in good shape,'" she admits. "And when you don't call, I'm like, 'I guess I should hit the gym.'"
Really? Hewitt is basing her self-image on the opinions of Maxim readers? That can't possibly be a good idea. On the other hand, she certainly knows how to cater to their readers. Here's how she responds when asked if she has any "secret skills."
"Pole dancing. It's a great way to stay in touch with your sexuality," she brags. "I also love to cook, so I can have a cake in the oven while I do a pole dance."
Another favorite hobby of hers: vajazzling. For the uninitiated, that's the blinging out of one's lower bikini area. "The fun part of being a girl is that there are little beauty things you can do to make yourself feel special," she says. "I can walk around all day and think, Nobody has any idea that I have a sparkly secret in my pants right now." Awesome.
Perhaps Hewitt has this sort of thing on the brain thanks to her latest role, as a housewife-turned-prostitute in the new Lifetime series The Client List. (It's based on the 2010 TV movie, in which Hewitt also starred.)
"I've never played a character who is this overtly sexual. It's definitely going to be a departure from the normal stuff I do," she says of the part, adding that it's a "lingerie-heavy show every episode."
So we know that J.Love can get men to buy magazines. But if she can get them to watch Lifetime, we'll really be impressed!
