Jennifer Love Hewitt got a surprise when she saw that her breasts had been digitally reduced in a new version of advertisement photos for her new Lifetime series, The Client List.
In the original version of the photos, Jennifer Love Hewitt flaunts her chest in revealing lingerie. But in the digitally altered version, Hewitt's breasts appear smaller and the top is higher cut.
Somebody sent me a copy of the photograph, and I was like, 'Ummm, what happened?' she said. I'm not quite sure what's going on. But apparently somebody wanted me to have a boob reduction. ... The thing thats even crazier is that usually when they do that stuff, I had to see the photograph before they went out anywhere, and I never saw a new version of it, Hewitt said on Friday's The Kevin & Bean Show from KROQ, according to Yahoo! News.
Why the change?
E! News reported that magazines and websites wanted to tone down the sexuality in the advertisements a bit. Jennifer Love Hewitt plays Riley Parks, a struggle mother who begins offering sex to her massage-parlor clients in order to pay the bills.
Some magazines and websites wanted something a little tamer, an insider told E! News. So Lifetime changed them a little bit. Things like this happen all the time. Would Lifetime want all the ads to show them as they really are? Of course!
Hewitt previously spoke with E! News about the backlash The Client List had received from more conservative critics.
It's a TV show, she told E! News at The Client List launch party at L.A.'s Sunset Tower hotel. They're not offended by Dexter or Nurse Jackie, but they're offended by me giving a happy ending?
Aside from the digital breast reduction and some reproach, the premiere of Jennifer Love Hewitt's Clint List took in 2.8 million viewers, according to Deadline. It was Lifetime's biggest debut since Drop Dead Dive which also averaged 2.8 million viewers when it first aired in 2009.
