Entertainment Weekly was OK with Jennifer Love Hewitt's new show, in which she plays a single mom turned prostitute, but they were less comfortable with her, uh, qualifications for the role. At least, that's the only explanation I can think of for why ads in EW promoting The Client List were altered to reduce the size of Hewitt's breasts. (Everywhere else, the ads showed her to be more ample.) Hewitt herself wasn't too bothered by it, even though she was never shown the altered version of the ad. She joked with KROQ's Kevin & Bean that "someone wanted [her] to have a boob reduction," but was relieved that "at least [Entertainment Weekly] still ran the ad, and they've been very kind to us." Not kind enough to at least shoot her a text before Photoshopping her image to meet their aesthetics? I've never claimed to understand Hollywood.
