I told you so…

Last year, a few days after my birthday — on Feb 29 to be precise — I blogged about Jennifer Love Hewitt and how unflattering photos of her were circulated around the Internet.

What baffled me was that Jen was a “size 2” and called “fat”.

I remember the picture vivildy. She was standing with the sea water around her thighs calf, and wearing a black bikini. She was photographed from behind. Her hip looked unnaturally wide against her tiny (probably 24-inch) waist.

IF she was a size 2 on top — which, on hindsight is ridiculous considering how busty she is. She should at least be a size 8 — she looked like a size 8 on the bottom.

Later, I saw another photograph from the same beach vacation. It appeared that Jennifer had the dreaded cellulite that, believe it or not, even perennially skinny Paris Hilton has — and the paps have pictures to prove it!

At the end of that post, I wrote that I won’t be surprised if the next time we see Jennifer on a magazine, she’d look shapelier than before.

It took almost two years for that to happen but lo and behold, Jennifer on the cover of Shape magazine looking as skinny as she was in Sister Act 2 — back when she was 14!!

You can call me jealous but I think she lost too much weight. I don’t know about you but I find it very disturbing that the 30-year-old Jen looks (and probably weighs the same when she was) 14.

Look at the cover! I think she looks emaciated — the face, the collar-bone right to the bony shoulders.

On the Internet, people are already commenting on her cover story. Some said that they felt cheated because Jen said she was happy with herself and then she went and lose the weight. Others were supportive of her decision and said that as long as she lost the weight the healthy way, it was find.

Me? Well, normally I’m supportive of anyone who aims to be healthier and fitter but I didn’t react positively to Jen “looking like that” on the cover of one of my favourite magazines.

Right now, I’m thinking she sold out. Well, I kinda-sorta predicted that she would do so almost 2 years ago.

I need to get my hands on that magazine to assess the situation fairly LOL. But I won’t lie. My initial reaction went from “She lost the weight?” and “Good for her she lost the weight” to “I think she lost too much weight. She looks sick”.

So right now, I’m not taking her weight loss so positively, especially since I think she didn’t really need to lose the weight. What she needed was only to tone up her arms and her thighs.

But now, it seems that she has lost even the meat on her cheeks and she looks (almost) beyond recognition. Ask me another day…
