My hero of the moment

This time it's Jennifer Love Hewitt. Although I like her in Ghost Whisperer, I never thought of her as more than just a plausible actress. Still she has risen several points in my esteem simply by taking on the internet misogynists who have decided that she is no longer an icon of perfection. Seems some shady photographer caught Ms. Hewitt in a private moment and published the pics in all their glory, cellulite and all. But instead of screaming bloody murder as many other actors might have done when caught with their pants down, Ms. Hewitt refused to be cowed into shame or apologize for her imperfections. Instead she rallied:

"I've sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women's bodies are constantly scrutinized. To set the record straight, I'm not upset for me, but for all the girls out there that are struggling with their body image."

I heartily agree. It's time young women (and us older gals, too) realize that the "perfection" you see in magazines and on screens are illusory, courtesy of some deft air-brushing, Photoshopping, and righteous camera angles.

So I give a thumbs up to Ms. Hewitt for her best feature - her stern backbone. She's made me less ashamed of my own imperfections.
