Jennifer Love Hewitt Works Out, But Likes Being ‘Curvy’
Actress Jennifer Love Hewitt has battled off criticism over her weight before, but seems to finally be comfortable in her own skin.
The 34-year-old tells Women’s Running that she’s stronger and healthier than ever, and feels more confident about her voluptuous figure.
“I’m an actress, I live in L.A., I work in Hollywood. But I’ve learned that if you’re too skinny, they’ll say something about it. If you’re not skinny enough, they’ll say something about it,” she said.
“I just try to feel good in my own skin as much as I can.” To stay in shape, Hewitt tries to “go back and forth” between yoga, Pilates and running on an incline.
She was inspired to start running by her mother, Patricia, who passed away in June 2012.
“I enjoy running, but she was a runner. She loved it and was able to go miles and miles and miles,” she says.
“The first time I did a big run was the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon Los Angeles [in 2010]. It was a blast — I absolutely loved it. What you put your body through is incredible, how sore you are the next day is quite crazy. But the benefits of it, cardiovascular-wise, body-wise, toning-wise, all of that, there’s nothing really that gets you in shape like [a race].”
She has also learned to embrace her curves, and is even afraid she’ll lose them if she overdoes it.
“I do find that as a curvy girl, as I guess I’ve sort of been deemed, I don’t think you want to run your curves off, because then you’re just not yourself,” however, running “helps with the badonk-a-donk!”
