Jennifer Love Hewitt has suffered a devastating loss Tuesday. Her mother has died at the age of 67.
The Client List’s mother, Patricia, lost her battle with cancer, Hewitt’s rep has confirmed to People. “Her family mourns her loss," the rep says. "She was an angel to all who knew her and they are grateful she is now in a better place. They ask for privacy at this difficult time. No further details are being provided."
The 33-year-old actress revealed that her mother was always her biggest supporter and even joked about her newest role as a prostitute. "She was like, 'So let's review....For 15 years people have been talking about your boobs. Earlier this year, you wrote about your hoo haw in a book. Now you're playing a crack ho on TV.' She was like, 'Do you think maybe you could do an animated movie next?'"
JLH remained very private about her mother's health, but was normally photographed taking vacations and spending time with her.
Patricia was a speech-language pathologist, Us Weekly reports. She is survived by her daughter as well as her son, Dr. Todd Hewitt.
