Jennifer Love Hewitt

Behold as our generation’s hottest starlet evokes screen goddesses of yore.

Ever since Jennifer Love Hewitt hit the big time on Fox’s orphanfest Party of Five in 1995, the gorgeous Texan has held the attention of mankind the world over. Her starring roles in the I Know What You Did Last Summer series of slasher flicks and the teen comedy Can’t Hardly Wait only solidified her claim as Hollywood’s most desired actress. Fast-forward a decade, and the three-time Maxim cover girl is still on top with her other­worldly series Ghost Whisperer, a ratings juggernaut for CBS. Recently, after a two-year relationship, the Love of our lives has become a single woman again. Glory, glory hallelujah!

We have a big story on geek movies and culture in this issue. What are your thoughts on—

Love geeks.

Excuse us?

Love geeks. I’m all about geeks. They’re funny, so that’s a big plus. Also, geeks are usually humble. They don’t have to be the person in the room with the coolest shirt.

What’s your biggest turnoff when you’re on a date?

Texting during dinner. Maybe if you’re a doctor it’s OK, but if you’re not and your friend texts you, “Hey bro, what’s up?” you should make the decision that I’m more important.
