Over the years, Hewitt has caught the attention of various magazines, earning spots in their lists of the world’s most beautiful women. Maxim magazine included her in their Hot 100 Women rankings, with spots ranging from 6th to 35th in 2005, 2008, 2010, 2012, 2013, and 2014, respectively.
She graced the covers of Maxim’s November 1999 and May 2009 issues as the “number one reader choice.” These rankings are a testament to Hewitt’s popularity, especially among men, who form the majority of Maxim’s readership. In 2008, “TV Guide” named Hewitt the sexiest woman on television, solidifying her position as a beauty icon.
She Continues to Shine in Diverse Roles
In 2005, Hewitt appeared in two projects showcasing her range as an actress. In the romantic comedy "The Truth About Love," she played a happily married English woman. She was drawn to the character since it was a departure from some of her previous roles.
Later that year, she starred in the television film "Confessions of a Sociopathic Social Climber," in which she portrayed a 28-year-old advertising executive who is more concerned with being a well-known socialite than being a good person. These roles allowed Hewitt to showcase her versatility and further demonstrated her ability to play both comedic and dramatic characters.
Film Career in the Mid-2000s
Hewitt returned to the big screen in 2006, reprising her role as Dr. Liz Wilson in “Garfield: A Tail of Two Kitties.” While the film didn't quite match the success of its predecessor, it still managed to rack up a strong box office gross. Hewitt's next film release was the comedy “Shortcut to Happiness,” in which she portrayed The Devil alongside Anthony Hopkins and Alec Baldwin.
The film, which was filmed in New York City in early 2001, became an unexpected asset in a federal bank fraud trial when an investor was convicted of bank fraud while the film was still in production. After changing hands a few times, the film was ultimately released in 2007.
Her Successful Career in Fashion and Advertising
Jennifer Love Hewitt has been featured on the covers of several popular magazines, including Seventeen, Rolling Stone, Cosmopolitan, GQ, CosmoGirl, Shape, Health, Maxim, FHM, Vanidades, and Jane. She has also been the face of various brands in print advertisements and commercials, such as Victoria Golf, Mrs. Smith, Colonial's Iron Kids Bread, Levi's, Barbie, LA Gear, Chex, Proactiv, Hanes, Neutrogena, Nokia, Jansport, and America's Dairy Producers.
Her versatility and charm have made her a sought-after figure in the world of fashion and advertising. Whether she is gracing the pages of a magazine or promoting a brand, there’s no denying her star power.
The Time She Allegedly Dated John Mayer
John Mayer has gained a reputation as someone who kisses and tells all in public. He has been linked to several famous women, including Jennifer Aniston and Jennifer Love Hewitt. In 2006, Mayer took a departure from music and ventured into stand-up comedy, using his personal life as material for his routine.
During one performance, he made jokes about not being able to be intimate with Hewitt, which drew criticism from some fans and the media. However, Mayer later expressed regret for his comments in an interview with "Us Weekly." He acknowledged that his words were hurtful and disrespectful, calling himself a "wimp."
