Jennifer Love Hewitt Gives Female Empowerment a New Name in The Client List

Jennifer Love Hewitt is well aware of possible judgments about her character in the Lifetime film The Client List: a married mother of three turned prostitute.

Bring it on -- that's part of the fun, she says.

"You do root for her and you do judge her, and you love that you judge her and by the end of it, you really forgive her for all that she's done," the 31-year-old Hewitt says. "Sometimes the best role models, and the people you should look up to the most, are the ones who actually do make mistakes because they show you how to overcome them."

The Client List, premiering Monday at 9/8c, is based on the true story of Samantha Horton, a woman who takes a position at a massage parlor only to find herself smack in the middle of a prostitution ring after she and her husband both lose their jobs.

"It really struck me, particularly where we are in the world economically. This is real stuff that people are dealing with," Hewitt says. "And I loved that, in this, it was about female empowerment. It was really her taking care of her family and I loved her struggle."

For the role, Hewitt trained by taking pole-dancing classes (she now has a pole in her house for her work-out regimen), but did little other research before filming began.
