#106 Jennifer Love Hewitt

11 01 2011

Actor, singer, author, producer, it’s sometimes hard to believe Jennifer Love Hewitt has only been around since 1979.  Performing as a child in commercials and on the Disney Channel, followed by TV series, movies and recording, just ending a five year series run, Jennifer has even written a comic book series.  Most of her C.V. is squeaky clean, but her work in I Know What You Did Last Summer and I Still Know What You Did Last Summer earn her a place here, along with a nod to The Ghost Whisperer.
