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."
