At the premiere of 27 Dresses last night, Jennifer Love Hewitt spoke to The Insider about her now infamous bikini shots that surfaced at the end of last year.

She said, with fiance Ross McCall at her side, "I was on the cover of People magazine in a bad bikini shot. I worked 20 years in this business and that’s how I got the cover of People!"

The photos, in which she garnered criticism for not pandering to Hollywood’s zero size standard, ruined the vacation she was on when they were taken. "It was not my best day, it was not my best week. I didn’t go frolic on the beach and feel really excited that those pictures were out there."

She added, "Somebody decided to say that I was the epitome of what isn’t attractive on a beach."
