Fans of the Jennifer Love Hewitt movies “Can’t Hardly Wait” and “Heartbreakers” may have something new to look forward to.
Appearing on the “Everything Iconic With Danny Pellegrino” podcast, the 40-year-old actress revealed she’s working on potential revivals of the two films.
“I have two things I’m trying to do this year,” she said. “A reunion ‘Can’t Hardly Wait’ movie that I direct, and I really want to make ‘Heartbreakers’ a TV series.”
Hewitt starred in 1998’s “Can’t Hardly Wait” alongside Ethan Embry, Charlie Korsmo, Lauren Ambrose, Peter Facinelli and Seth Green.
Speaking about the “Heartbreakers” reboot, Hewitt said that she would not act in the series, but would love for Jamie Lee Curtis to star.
The original 2001 film starred Hewitt and Susan Sarandon as a mother-daughter con-woman team.
Also on the podcast, Hewitt opened up about the ways in which she was sexualized earlier in her career.
“I think my biggest realization in my late 30s, now 40s, is that people made me a sex symbol, but I didn’t feel like a sex symbol,” she said. “I didn’t even know what being a sex symbol was. I was, like, 15 years old, and because of what I looked like physically people made me that thing and although it was very complimentary at the time and certainly fun when I was dating… it wasn’t genuinely who I was. I think I felt generally conflicted a lot of the time and I didn’t know why and it was just because it wasn’t authentic.”
