Best-known to television audiences as “Sarah Reeves” on the award-winning drama series “Party of Five,” Jennifer Love Hewitt’s popularity in the role prompted show producers to spin-off the character into a new drama, “Time of Your Life.”
Most recently, Hewitt completed production on the MGM feature film, “Breakers” with Sigourney Weaver. In the comedy, Hewitt and Weaver portray a mother-daughter con team who specialize in using their feminine wiles to swindle men. The film also features Gene Hackman, and Ray Liotta and is scheduled for release April 6, 2001.
In January, she will begin production on “The Devil and Daniel Webster.” Alec Baldwin will direct her in the role of “The Devil” as she goes up against Anthony Hopkins (“Daniel Webster”) in a battle for the soul of “Jabez Stone” (Baldwin).
Last spring Hewitt received critical acclaim as the title role in the ABC Original Movie “Audrey Hepburn,” based on the life of the beloved Academy Award-winning actress. The film dramatized Audrey’s life from her traumatic childhood during the Nazi occupation of Holland in WWII to her celebrated status as an international film star.
In addition to her television projects, Hewitt has starred in several successful feature films, including “I Know What You Did Last Summer,” for which she won a 1998 Blockbuster Entertainment Award. Hewitt also starred in the film’s sequel “I Still Know What You Did Last Summer” and the comedies “Can’t Hardly Wait” and “The Suburbans.” Her additional feature film credits include “Telling You,” “Sister Act 2,” and “House Arrest.”
The multi-talented actress is a gifted vocalist with three solo albums to her credit. She made her Atlantic Records debut with the dance-oriented pop album Let’s Go Band, followed by Jennifer Love Hewitt. Her first CD, Love Songs, was released in Japan in 1992 with singles from the album released in Britain, Germany and Austria.
Love resides in the Los Angeles area.
