why is she famous?
After her goody-goody role in Party of Five, Jennifer proved she could play up the sexiness factor in Can't Hardly Wait, Heartbreakers, and Enrique Iglesias' "Hero" video And have you seen the cover of her album Barenaked? Let's just say it's an appropriate title.
Jennifer Love Hewitt -- "Love" to family and friends -- was born in Waco, Texas, on February 21, 1979, and raised by her mother (her parents got divorced when Hewitt was a mere 6 months old).
Since childhood, Hewitt had a passion for singing and by the time she was 10, she was able to add dancing to her talents. Although the young Hewitt had already performed at shows and toured with the Texas Show Team, she had bigger aspirations: she wanted to take on Hollywood.
