The good news for Jennifer Love Hewitt is that she isn't the worst, most unpopular actress to ever live. The bad news is she's the worst, most unpopular actress since 1985.
According to Slate.com, who used their access to movie review aggregator Rotten Tomatoes, Love Hewitt is the worst-reviewed actress since 1985, the cutoff date they established as a modern era for reviews unaffected by nostalgia and the easier critics of the past. Hewitt has the rare distinction of never having made a single "fresh" (above 60 percent on Rotten Tomatoes) film. Her average score of 18.9 owes to such duds as "Sister Act 2: Back in the Habit" (7 percent), "I Know What You Did Last Summer" (35 percent), "I Still Know What You Did Last Summer" (7 percent), and both "Garfield" movies (15 percent and 11 percent, respectively).
It's too bad they don't factor in and compare actresses as competitive eaters, like in those hot dog eating contests they have on the 4th of July. If they had a chart like that, Jennifer would be all set.
