Jennifer Love Hewitt wants women to throw out their bathroom scales.

The 31-year-old actress believes she only felt confident about her body when she rid herself of her scales and forgot about her weight altogether, and "urges" women everywhere to follow her lead.

According to Absolute Now, Jennifer said: "I don't have scales any more and I don't weigh myself.

"I would urge women everywhere to throw out their scales. Even when I go to the doctor's office I'm like, 'Don't tell me. Just write it on your chart and don't tell me.'

"It does you no good to know."

The 'Ghost Whisperer' actress recently revealed a love of Brazilian model Gisele Bundchen's body.

She said: "I think I'm a work in progress. But I feel it's so much better than it was a year-and-a-half ago, and I feel like in another eight months, it's going to be so much better than it is today."

"I'd want to have Gisele Bundchen's body. Even though she's tall and skinny, she does have curves."
