Jennifer Love Hewitt
In the mid-1990s, Jennifer Love Hewitt transformed from a Barbie-hawking child actress into a men's magazine mainstay with her role in the thriller, "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (1997). She had already begun building a following with her perky, girl-next-door role on the hit teen drama "Party of Five" (Fox, 1994-2000), but her tight tops and blood-curdling screams in the hair-raising blockbuster made her into a household name. Hewitt's frenzied popularity resulted in her own spin-off TV series, a sequel "Summer" film, and the release of several pop albums before she settled into a career of lightweight family films and TV, including a starring role in the supernatural drama series "The Ghost Whisperer" (CBS, 2005-2010). Though she had her run-ins with the tabloid press, particularly after less-than-flattering pictures of her taken at the beach appeared in print, Hewitt nonetheless remained a gifted actress capable of consistently turning in award-worthy performances.
