Hewitt gave her first official performance at a livestock show when she was a mere 3 year old and soon she started her stint with television commercials. This helped her get a major role on Disney’s musical show, “Kids Incorporated” running between 1984 and 1993. Her skills were further showcased in the video “Dance! Workout with Barbie.”
In 1993, she was given a small role in “Sister Act 2”. With “Party of Five”, Hewitt came to be associated with popularity.

Hewitt’s love for music continued after her first album. Two more albums followed “Let’s go Bang” and “Jennifer Love Hewitt”. They did not fare well and she stayed away from music for a few years.
In 2002, her first ever single released “BareNaked” became a huge hit and it was followed by “Cool with You: The Platinum Collection.”
Hewitt continued to work in films like “House Arrest” and “Trojan War” in 1996 and 1997 respectively. The protagonist role in “I know what you did Last Summer” earned her the much-needed fame and then another hit “Can’t Hardly Wait” did wonders for her.
Hewitt had to let go of her teenage icon status and thus took up some serious roles for “The Audrey Hepburn Story” in 2000, followed it up with “Heartbreakers” in 2001 and in 2002, paired up with Jackie Chan for “The Tuxedo”. There was “Garfield” in 2004 but the last 2 movies got her mixed responses from the audiences.
