Jennifer Love Hewitt, in her latest TV movie, takes on the role of a mother of three children who is forced to turn to prostitution after she and her husband both lose their jobs and Jennifer's real mum thinks it's "awesome'!
The TV movie 'The Client List', which aired on American channel 'Lifetime' this week, tells the tale of Samantha Horton who answers a job advert to work in a massage parlour to help solve her family's destitute financial situation. It soon becomes apparent that the massage parlour is selling sexual services and Samantha accepts the job and even begins to enjoy it.
Former 'Ghost Whisperer' star JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show, she understands that her character had no choice but to accept the job as, in the story, their house is about to be foreclosed.
In the movie actress Cybill Shepherd plays Samantha's unhappy mother but JENNIFER LOVE HEWITT's real mother laughed off the fact her daughter is playing a prostitute and even said it was "awesome".
Love Hewitt told Entertainment Tonight': "My mom's like, 'I'm so proud. You're pole dancing and you're going to play a prostitute. awesome!'
