(Newser) – Actress and former underwear model Jennifer Love Hewitt has fired back at Internet gossipers who've been sniping about her figure since unflattering photos of her on a Hawaiian beach with fiance Ross McCall made the rounds. "Like all women out there should, I love my body," she wrote on her blog, adding: "A size 2 is not fat! Nor will it ever be." 

TMZ begged to differ, snarking: "We know what you ate this summer, Love—everything!"
The indignant "Ghost Whisperer" star embraced her non-size-2 sisters, adding, "I've sat by in silence for a long time now about the way women's bodies are constantly scrutinized. To all girls with butts, boobs, hips, and a waist, put on a bikini—put it on and stay strong."
