Jennifer Love Hewitt Loves Her Body, Wants A Different One (PHOTOS)

Jennifer Love Hewitt wants girls to love their bodies as they are, she says in the new issue of People in which she dispenses diet and exercise tips.

"When I meet young girls, I'm always like, 'Just do me one favor,' " she said. "Love what you look like right now - and remember I said it 10 years from now because it's the greatest gift I can give."

Jennifer tells the magazine that she made mental changes after unflattering bikini pictures surfaced in 2007. A couple of months ago she said that she dealt with the incident by going to the gym. She noticeably slimmed down.

"I just really worked on my mental part for a couple of weeks, got myself in a really good mindset," Jennifer told People.

Despite her mental makeover, Jennifer, whose boyfriend once called her "pear ass," still wishes she looked like a supermodel.

"I'd want to have Gisele Bundchen's body. Even though she's tall and skinny, she does have curves ... and I think that's hot," she said. "Halle Berry also is kind of amazing."
