Jennifer Love Hewitt is an American actress best known for her role as Sarah Reeves in the television teen drama Party of Five, and for her leading role as Julie James in the 1997 horror films I Know What You Did Last Summer and its 1998 sequel, I Still Know What You Did Last Summer.

She reprised her role as Sarah Reeves in the Party of Five spin-off series Time of Your Life, appearing in all 21 episodes of the show.

In 2005 Hewitt landed her third major role in a television series, playing Melinda Gordon in the supernatural drama Ghost Whisperer. She played the role for five seasons and 107 episodes, until it ended in May 2010.

In 2012 she began starring in and producing the drama series The Client List. Other television shows she has appeared in include Boy Meets World, Saturday Night Live and American Dreams.

In 2014 she joined the police procedural television series Criminal Minds for its tenth season as a series regular in the role of Kate Callahan, a seasoned FBI undercover agent who becomes the newest BAU member.

Hewitt has amassed numerous feature film credits. She starred in Twentieth Century Fox's live action/CGI features, Garfield and Garfield: A Tale of Two Kitties; the DreamWorks action/comedy The Tuxedo, opposite Jackie Chan; MGM's Heartbreakers, with Sigourney Weaver, Gene Hackman and Ray Liotta; I Know What You Did Last Summer, for which she won a 1998 Blockbuster Entertainment Award and the film's sequel I Still Know What You Did Last Summer; and the comedies Can't Hardly Wait and The Suburbans.

Hewitt also starred in two independent features, The Truth About Love and If Only, which she produced with her production company Fedora Films.

She received critical acclaim as the title role in the ABC Original Movie The Audrey Hepburn Story, based on the life of the iconic Academy Award-winning actress.

She starred in the Hallmark Hall of Fame movie, The Lost Valentine, opposite Betty White. Hewitt received a nomination from the Hollywood Foreign Press Association for Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-series or Motion Picture Made For Television for her role in the Lifetime Original Movie, The Client List, upon which the series is based.

She has also released a number of albums with some success, most notably in Europe and Japan. Her first album was released in Japan, where she is widely considered a pop star.

Hewitt was born in Waco, Texas, to Patricia Mae (née Shipp), a speech-language pathologist, and Herbert Daniel Hewitt, a medical technician. Hewitt grew up in Nolanville in Central Texas.

Hewitt received her middle name after her mother promised her college friend (named "Love") that if she had a daughter, she would name her after her.
