Jennifer Love Hewitt was Jessica Simpson long before Jessica Simpson was Jessica Simpson.
No, JLH didn't mix up fish and chicken; nor did she hand over control of her career to a domineering, occasionally perverse father.
Instead, The Ghost Whisperer star endured criticism of her ever-changing body, similar to the insults levied at Simpson over the past month.
Was it deserved? Not one bit. Hewitt is gorgeous no matter what shape or size she comes in.
