A chirpy child star who virtually grew up in front of the camera, Jennifer Love Hewitt was born in Waco, Texas, on Feb. 21, 1979. She used her middle name, Love, while singing, dancing and acting as part of the all-kid ensemble cast of "Kids Incorporated" (1989-91).

In the 1990s, Hewitt hit it big as a teen idol on "Party of Five" (1995-99) -- which led to her own short-lived spinoff, "Time of Your Life" (1999-2001) -- and with the horror franchise I Know What You Did Last Summer (1997, 1998). She also attempted to launch a career as a pop star, although the press at times seemed more interested in her much-publicized love life.

Hewitt found surer footing as a small-screen spirit communicator on the paranormal drama "Ghost Whisperer" (2005-10). She earned her first Golden Globe nod playing a reluctant prostitute in the made-for-television movie The Client List (2010).
