Although Jennifer Love Hewitt is playing a racy role in her new series The Client List, which premiered on Sunday, she revealed that she wouldn't have signed on for the series if her role had included nudity.
"I wouldn't have done nudity," Hewitt said in a conference call when prompted as to whether she would have accepted the role if it were on a different, edgier network. "That's not something that I feel particularly comfortable with," she elaborated.
In addition to admitting her lack of comfort with unveiling her entire body to cameras and millions around the globe, the 33-year-old actress revealed that not exposing the entire body creates arousal through the imagination.
"I also think that it's sexier not to show everything," she theorized. "I feel like imaginations can do way more."
Based on the 2010 film of the same name, Hewitt plays the role of a woman named "Riley Parks" who struggles to support her family after being abandoned by her husband and turns to the taboo business of being a call girl.
