A bloody and battered Jennifer Love Hewitt was snapped on the mean streets of New York Monday, but she’s only the victim of a good make-up artist.
Hewitt was filming on location for her upcoming guest appearance on ‘Law & Order: SVU.’
In the harrowing storyline, Hewitt plays a traumatized woman named Vicki who’s been raped multiple times and becomes too terrified to even leave her home.
The 31-year-old beauty has taken some dark roles lately–from victim to vixen–since her dearly departed CBS show ‘Ghost Whisperer‘ was canceled in May.
Looks like Benson and Stabler (Mariska Hargitay, Christopher Meloni) have their hands full on this 12th season of the ‘L&O’ franchise favorite. In addition to J.Love, the spin-off has landed a laundry list of guest stars, such as Maria Bello, Joan Cusack and Henry Ian Cusick (‘Lost’).
The two-hour season premiere of ‘Law & Order: SVU’ airs Sept. 22 at 9 p.m./EST on NBC. Hewitt’s episode of ‘SVU’ airs the following week on Sept. 29th.
