Jennifer Love Hewitt, who lit up the '90s with roles in Party of Five and I Know What You Did Last Summer, hit a major milestone last year when the brunette bombshell turned 40.
Today she's 41 and still the Texas-born actress who survived schlocky soap-opera writing, masked killers with hooks for hands, and countless Maxim cover shoots for nearly four decades to arrive at her forties proper, still a star and playing a main character on Fox's 9-1-1.
Despite her long career and Hollywood prominence, she has never lost her girl-next-door charm... or her ridiculous good looks.

In the words of her I Know What You Did Last Summer character... "What are you waiting for!!!???"
We can't hardly wait for her 42nd.
