Jennifer Love Hewitt’s taken pole dancing lessons

Jennifer Love Hewitt’s mum is “proud” of her latest role is as a prostitute. The 31-year-old actress – who plays a homecoming queen-turned-prostitute in upcoming movie ‘The Client List’ – admits playing the racy part is “empowering”. She revealed: “My mom’s like, ‘I’m so proud. You’re pole dancing and you’re going to play a prostitute. Awesome!”

Jennifer – who received harsh criticism for her weight in 2009 after pictures of her in a bikini surfaced – added taking pole dancing classes for the role proved a great way to shape up. She told ET Online: “It really, really gets you in shape and it also really teaches you about your inner sexuality.”

The 31-year-old actress went on to explain the movie is particularly interesting in the current economic climate because of the sacrifice her character Samantha has to make to provide for her family. She explained: “Given where we are economically, it’s an interesting story. It’s really a movie about the human condition, and the heart, and where life can take you.” However, it would appear Jennifer is not as racy as her ‘The Client List’ alter ego, as she recently revealed she is a “sucker” for a romantic story. She explained: “I’m a hopeless romantic. My middle name is Love. Valentine’s Day is my favourite holiday. I want to have a family and children. I am a sucker for every romantic comedy that comes out.”

Shesaid Says: Sounds like Jennifer Love Hewitt is just old fashioned romantic at heart.
