Jennifer Love Hewitt: I was as sexy as a peanut

Jennifer Love Hewitt: I was as sexy as a peanut
(BANG) -Jennifer Love Hewitt was as ''sexy as a peanut'' when she was younger.

The 33-year-old actress may play a saucy masseuse who offers extra services in US drama 'The Client List', but she admits she wasn't confident about her body and looks when she was 18

She said: ''Sex? I was about as sexy as a peanut. I had the sultriness of a clam.''

However, it was her role in 2001 movie 'Heartbreakers' - in which she starred with Sigourney Weaver as they played a mother and daughter con team who seduced rich men - which unlocked her libido.

After the director David Mirkin told her the sort of sultry behavior he expected on screen, Jennifer quizzed her guy friends on what they found a turn-on in a woman.

In an interview with The Sun newspaper, she revealed: ''David told me what he wanted from me and I thought, 'My God, if I do that, I'm going to scare small children.'

''He told me to go home and look in the mirror and have a conversation with myself to make myself feel sexy ... What I also did was interview a group of my guy friends and ask them to tell me what makes a woman sexy, because I had no idea. I loved playing the bad girl. Wearing outrageous clothes was very liberating. I was usually a jeans and T-shirt girl.

Jennifer is still wary about being overtly sexual and although she's happy to be sexy on screen she won't strip naked on screen.

The 'Ghost Whisperer' star said: ''I've always turned down parts with nudity. I didn't like to look at myself naked, so I did not want the world to look at me naked either. I don't mind the rest. I do not mind having my boobs accentuated. I would much rather have attention on my boobs than my big butt!''

    NO nudity? Ever? Let us remember this quote when she finally inevitably DOES take her clothes off. I have FAR more respect for actresses like Charlize Theron who will disrobe if the role calls for it. Jennifer, being stuck up that way you might fall flat on your boobs!

    Hey Lou... I think it is wonderful that she won't let Hollywood make her do Nude scenes. There is nothing "stuck up" about respecting your body.
