Jennifer Love Hewitt Worst Actress Ever?
Despite being blessed with some of Hollywood’s best natural “tomatoes,” Jennifer Love-Hewitt has unofficially been dubbed the worst-reviewed movie actress since 1985.
So says Slate, anyway, which recently compiled data from Rotten Tomatoes, a site that generates reviews from movie critics based on a “fresh” and “rotten” scale. Hewitt’s review score averaged a depressing 18.9 percent, thanks to movies like ‘Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit,’ ‘I Still Know What You Did Last Summer’ and the much-maligned ‘Garfield’ movies.
Chuck Norris, meanwhile, was named the worst-reviewed actor, with an equally depressing 18.4 percent average.
Of course, the study failed to include Hewitt’s TV work on such shows as ‘Party of Five’ and ‘Ghost Whisperer,’ which might have fueled her rather, um, unhappy response. In a statement released to EW.com, she said, “Clearly, I need to learn French and go to Paris to make some French films, since those seem to be the favorites of critics. And do they give trophies for this?” (Hewitt was referring to the study’s best-reviewed actor, Daniel Auteuil.)
Sound off: Do you think Jennifer Love-Hewitt deserves this dishonor? Or should it go to someone else?
This seems to be a little off to me. Although I’ll admit she’s no Marlon Brando, or maybe even Marlon Wayons, Jennifer Love Hewitt can’t have Hollywood’s WORST reviews! However, to be fair, I’m having a tough time thinking of anybody to use as an example. Maybe Jessica Simpson or Paris Hilton, but they really haven’t been in enough movies to qualify them as “actresses.”
Who in Hollywood (female) is less-talented than Jennifer Love Hewitt? There’s GOTTA be some!!
