Jennifer Love Hewitt loves the racy billboards for her show The Client List, but that doesn't mean she needs to see them up close and personal.
The 33-year-old actress paid a visit to Jimmy Kimmel Live Wednesday night, and talk quickly turned to how the show's ad campaign relies largely on two of Hewitt's most popular assets: yes, her boobs. Kimmel then surprised J.Love with the last remaining portion of a billboard that had been up across the street from his office.
"No! No!" cried Hewitt, as stagehands brought out the portion of the poster that shows off her cleavage. "Seriously, that looks like a horror movie, blown up like that... They look like King Kong's." Watch the video below!
Even though she didn't want to see them that close (and repeatedly tried to cover up the billboard with her body), Hewitt did say she was pretty proud of the billboards.
"It's kind of weird. It's a little odd. But it's cool," she says of seeing herself all over Los Angeles. "I feel like I'm going to be a little sad now when they take them down."
Even though the ads and the show -- which is about a female masseuse with a talent for giving her clients very happy endings -- contain racy material, Hewitt says she's had a good response from her family. The one person she doesn't want to see the billboards, though, is her grandmother in Texas.
"My family is pretty proud," Hewitt says. "Thank god none of them have been put up in my grandmother's neighborhood yet, so I'm waiting for that phone call and I'm hoping that it won't happen."
Maybe her grandmother's neighborhood will get one of the billboards that had Hewitt's chest reduced and covered, though, so she'll have nothing to worry about -- although Kimmel did threaten to send her granny the portion of the billboard featuring just her breasts.
According to Hewitt, the billboards have had some other positive effects on her life.
"I've heard from lots of people who I haven't heard from in years, who oddly enough are like, 'Hey, your boobs are right outside my window, congratulations.' And I'm like, 'Oh, thank you,'" she says. Then, gesturing to her breasts, she adds, "'We thank you.'"
