Jennifer Love Hewitt knows what prostitutes are going through
HollywoodNews.com: It’s hard out there to be a hooker, and if anyone has come close to their pains in life, it’s Jennifer Love Hewitt who plays one in the Lifetime film “The Client.”
Hewitt, 31, plays a mother and former small-town beauty queen who turns to a life in the sex trade because she has no other choice.
“Her husband has been injured and out of work; her massage therapy job has been phased out; her kids need braces and their house is about to be foreclosed,” Hewitt told Ryan Seacrest on his KIIS-FM radio show Monday. “So she answers an ad in the paper for a massage therapy position.”
What becomes titillating at first goes down the tubes: Hewitt’s hooker realizes that she’s opted for more than she’s bargained.
It came to Hewitt while prepping the role that the reason why women turn to prostitution is because they both need to survive through economic hard times and “it’s sort of helping them in their personal lives as well,” she said.
Some women aren’t getting the sexual satisfaction they need at home and “are kind of going out and going, ‘Well, we have needs just like men do, and if men can go out and get their needs met, we will too.'”
