Jennifer Love Hewitt fans must already know that she's back on TV in a role very much unlike the one she played in the family-friendly “Ghost Whisperer.” A new ad for Lifetime's “The Client List” is out and, surprisingly, it Photoshopped away the best part of the original pic.
In “The Client List,” Hewitt plays a woman so financially desperate that she accepts a job as a working girl to provide for her family, her kids and disabled husband.
As expected, all the ads released so far made ample use of Jennifer's curvy body – as also did the one you can see on the right of the photo attached to this article.
On the left is the altered version now available. It makes for a sharp contrast to the first image, in that Jennifer's impressive cleavage has been considerably downsized, as E! Online also points out.
“In the ad on the right, the 33-year-old actress flaunts her breasts in a revealing, low-cut black slip. But a second, more modest version shows Hewitt's buxom [breasts] are noticeably smaller and her cleavage-baring negligee appears to be higher cut,” the celebrity e-zine writes.
Asked whether she had pre-approved the modification, Jennifer reveals she was taken completely by surprise with it.
She can't explain what might have motivated Lifetime to issue such a photo of herself.
"Somebody sent me a copy of the photograph, and I was like, 'Um, what happened?' I'm not quite sure what's going on. But apparently somebody wanted me to have a [breast] reduction,” the actress says.
In November last year, Jennifer started preparations to be in her best shape possible for when shooting started: she embarked on a new diet and started working out more.
She knew from the start the role would see her don more revealing outfits, so she also imagined she was expected to do her best to get in shape.
As fans must know, Love has been leading an intensely mediated battle against the pounds, which keep on creeping up on her whenever she's brokenhearted, as she once joked.
In January 2012, the first TV spot for the new series was released, leaving no room for doubt that Jennifer had attained her goal and had a banging body.
Sadly, advertisers did not feel the same way.
