To tell you our tropes, we have to tell you hers:
- As Herself: On Family Guy, The Weekenders and in non-cartoon form in Tropic Thunder.
- Big Bra to Fill: Inverted when she starred in the TV movie The Audrey Hepburn Story. As Newsweek noted, "Hepburn was famously flat-chested. Hewitt is famously not." (Hewitt also does her own singing, unlike Hepburn.) Which brings us to...
- Buxom Is Better:
- There was once an entire website devoted just to her breasts.
- Averted when her cleavage was digitally eliminated in some print advertisements for The Client List. (Which was to be expected, given it was made for a channel not known for courting male viewers.)
- Celebrity Voice Actor: In Delgo and the sequel to Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
- Dawson Casting: Averted for Party of Five, as she was the same age as her character. I Know What You Did Last Summer just barely averts it too, as her character starts out eighteen and then jumps ahead a year (and she was that age when filming).
- Directed by Cast Member: JLH called the shots on three episodes each of Ghost Whisperer and The Client List.
- Dull Surprise: This is her default expression in Ghost Whisperer.
- Hand-Hiding Sleeves: As Sarah Reeves she helped popularise the cute version in America.
- Genki Girl: Has had a reputation of being incredibly bubbly, often to Pollyanna heights.
- Ms. Fanservice: Jennifer is this in many movies and TV shows that she has been in.
- Of Corsets Sexy: Just check out this◊ picture.
- Playing Against Type: She usually plays wholesome characters or an Innocent Fanservice Girl. In Heartbreakers she plays a con artist who's also a Jerk with a Heart of Gold.
- Star-Making Role: Party of Five did this for television and I Know What You Did Last Summer solidified it for film.
- Teens Are Short: Was able to hang onto a few teen roles after she turned eighteen, due to only being 5 ft 2.
- Theme Naming: She has two children, daughter Autumn and son Atticus.
- Why Did It Have to Be Snakes?: Jennifer is claustrophobic and while filming a scene in an underground tunnel for Ghost Whisperer a removable wall had to be installed so she could get out quickly.
"Later days! Hahahahaha... I feel like such a dork!"
