Jennifer Love Hewitt on exercising: “I don’t think you want to run your curves off, because then you’re just not yourself”
Jennifer Love Hewitt lands the cover of Women’s Running magazine, and looks amazing! The ‘Client List’ actress reveals that she’s confident in her own skin now, but it hasn’t always been that way.
The 34-year-old had to learn to embrace her curvy body in an industry full of skinny women.
“I’m an actress, I live in L.A., I work in Hollywood,” the star explained. “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. I just try to feel good in my own skin as much as I can.”
Her biggest fitness inspiration is her mother, who passed away from cancer 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 also gets motivated by competition. “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].”
Jennifer Loves her curves, and is careful not to lose them. “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.”
But regular running “Definitely helps your butt, that’s for sure. It helps with the badonk-a-donk!”
She looks great!
