Jennifer Love Hewitt is still talking about the infamous bikini shots that had her criticized in newspapers, television and magazines late last year. At an Oscar party she told People magazine, who put the picture and Hewitt's defense on their cover:

"The thing I think is great is when those pictures were taken, no matter what, I had just been asked to marry," says Hewitt, engaged to Scottish actor Ross McCall, "so he loves me just the way I am."

And if she does decide to something about her body, "I will for my health, not for typical reasons," she told PEOPLE on Sunday at an Oscar viewing party at SBE's The Abbey in West Hollywood.

"If I do work out more it will be for my health, so I can live a long time and we can have kids and be happy together until we are in our 80s," Hewitt, 29, said at the event, benefiting AIDS Project Los Angeles. "It won't be because I am worried about how I look."

Soon after the pictures went public, Hewitt blogged how a "size 2 is not fat."
