Jennifer Love Hewitt not comfortable going nude on screen

Jennifer Love Hewitt may have a smoking physique, but don’t expect her to take her clothes off for a role.

“That's not something that I feel particularly comfortable with," the buxom beauty recently told "Entertainment Tonight" about the idea of getting X-rated for ratings.

She said that if the producers of her new Lifetime series “The Client List” approached her to get naked for the cameras, the show would have been a no-go.

"I wouldn't have done nudity," the 33-year-old actress, who plays a call-girl on "Client List," said. "I also think that it's sexier not to show everything."

Hewitt’s full-on curves may have been too much for viewers to handle anyway.

According to the New York Daily News, the network appeared to digitally reduce Hewitt's ample assets for ads promoting “The Client List” - something she said she had no knowledge of before it happened.

“Somebody sent me a copy of the photograph, and I was like, ‘Ummm . . . what happened?’” she told "The Kevin & Bean Show" from L.A.’s KROQ recently.

Two ads circulated promoting the show, with one showing more of Hewitt's cleavage, while the other showed her chest dramatically reduced.

    While I'm disappointed with her decision, I have to thank her for proving to Hollywood that real men prefer real breasts.

      @NorCalMojo Real men or mature men? Do a little research and you'll find that a mature man ( as opposed to a Real Man) prefers a woman with a nice pair of legs, including her butt. A "real man" is characterized as more immature, ego-driven, and less inclined towards intellectual pursuits. When's the last time you heard a Real Man say "Wow, she has really got a beautiful pair of legs"?

      All that aside, women (and men and their penises) should not be reduced to a collection of body parts, sorted on various criteria which can only be described as subjective and shallow, are human beings and so much more.

    Pity, she's beautiful. Would be one more thing of beauty to admire in this occasionally very ugly world.

    That being said, I'd expect she had some professional shots taken by a reliable photographer. In our modern environment where hidden cameras are easy to obtain, we're almost at the point where it is inevitable that some nudes of any person will be obtained. If I were a famous and attractive actress, I'd definitely have some professional shots done, secured away in case there is a leak of amateur/paparazzi/stalker pics.

    first off, lifetime, it tv for women, and is not a pay chanel, there is zero nudity so this story is a non issue. Second if she is so prude to be ashamed of her body who cares. Lucy Lawlwss is in her 40's and she goes nude for sparticus and has no problem, (her husband is the produce). People need to get there minds out of the victorien mode of thought that nudity is pronagraphic or somehow shamefull it is neither.

    I believe JLH is one of the screen's most sucessful teases. She knows once she shows 'em, people will turn their attention elsewhere. Some of the pictures I've seen of her, as well as some not-so-well edited film footage, show that bodywise she's a one trick pony with just a big pair of boobs that get by on their own versus an ass that ain't gettin to the gym. Maybe layin' off them bon bons would help. Anyway, lay off the rude and undeserved remarks about her face. That's a result of genetics, just like that rack you wack over.

      Yep, there's a time for women when it really turns to sheet. 35 years old and they simply become old bags/hags. It's really inevitable ? You wind up with a dude anyway ? Menopause is what it is. That's the answer ! Why men cheat and look for a younger and more fertile creature. Nature is programmed that way.

    She's too old for anyone to really care. Actresses don't have to do nudity but when someone is known for their physique more so than their acting skills (guffaw!) you might want to consider it before its too later. At this point in her carerr, its just curiosity..... then again theres always the magic of post-processing.

    We all know the real reason why she doesn't like to to take her clothes off– her weight has yo-yo'd so much over the years that she's afraid of being called fat again. She would have to stay in better shape if she showed everything. This is a smart move on her part.

      Totally agree with you. I've seen photos of her in the past where a bikini at the beach, photographers aimed the camera on her huge butt to show all of her cottage cheese. She can get as wide as an elephant at times.

    Great cans, but I've run across her in a supermarket in W. Hollywood in the early am with no makeup and she looks like any other woman with great cans shopping at a supermarket at 1 a.m. I personally don't get the allure. And when does makeup cross the line into being war paint? Ms. Fluffy Bumpers looks to be flirting with the edge.

    I don't know if she's spent too much time tanning or what, but her leathery face makes her look like a young 50-year old instead of a 33-year old.

Just because you exit doesn't mean that we have to ignore the obvious fact that they do too. If you really feel that what you do is not the same thing as what this show portrays, then it's downright childish for you to be offended.

    I don't care what kind of actress she is or what she looks like. The (missed) point is that she is part of a tacky Lifetime drama about a woman who is a massage therapist and gives happy endings.

    Oh please, get over yourself! JLH has been using her "assets" to make a buck for years. Who the heck told her she was hot? She isn't that pretty and has a head like a light bulb if she doesn't have some bangs. 33? Looks way older. Sofia Vergara is hot. Selma Hayek is hot. Jamie Lee Curtis is hot. Those are all women with confidence, brains and looks. JLH, not so much.

      Don't get mad because your pathetic baseball team actually lost to the Orioles... a team that can't even beat a college team... LOL.

      You lose all credibility when you say Jamie Lee Curtis is hot in the same context of Sofia Vergara and Salma Hayek.

      i hope this doesn't turn into short of a porn series. she doesn't want to take her clothes off, what she is doing is offensive as can be, plus she looks too old for the part, change around the theme or this show is going off the air.

    Yeah. Me too. I think if she tried not wearing shirts she would find it is very comfy.

      Me too! She is the most beautiful woman on TV. All natural, nothing plastic of fake about her! I've always greatly admired her huge assets!
