Wow! Look at Jennifer Love Hewitt going all off on her hot self on the cover of Shape magazine!

The 33 year-old The Client List actress told the mag of her new bod posing on the cover in a two-piece.

"I wasn’t going to the gym or eating right when that unfortunate photo was taken," she says. “It was time to start working out and watching my diet more closely."

She dealt with the passing of her mother Patricia in 2012.

"And I would have done that had it not been for a few great people who said to me, ‘That’s not how you’re going to handle this situation,'" she adds. "I even tried boxing, and I can’t tell you how much it helped me. When life hits you so hard -- whether someone you care for dies or your lover leaves you -- working out can save your life. It certainly saved mine.”

The March issue of Shape hits newsstands on February 19.
