Ooo, retro!

Seems like a good week for women in Hollywood to speak out against sexism: first Katherine Heigl and now Jennifer Love Hewitt.

On her blog, in response to some allegedly unflattering photos of her that were posted on the internet, Hewitt (or is it Love Hewitt?) said: 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 of the girls out there that are struggling with their body image.

A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be. And being a size 0 doesn’t make you beautiful…

I know what I look like, and so do my friends and family. And like all women out there should, I love my body.

To all girls with butts, boobs, hips and a waist, put on a bikini — put it on and stay strong.

I thought it was particularly nice that she says she’s upset on behalf of all of us. Go sisterhood!

Now, when is Britney going to tell the media off?
